Story
Tagline
The Everyday Photographer. Community & Blog Wrangler at Photocrati, photographer, blogger and educator.
Introduction

Scott Wyden Kivowitz is the Community & Blog Wrangler at Photocrati & NextGEN Gallery, a blogger, photographer and educator. Scott is also the author of Time Is On Your Side: Exploring Long Exposure Photography, Go Wider with Panoramic Photography and Ambivert's Guide to Street Photography. Scott considers himself an everyday photographer rather than narrowing his scope of photography style down to only portraits and landscape. Being an everyday photographer means he photographs whatever sparks his interest.

Scott is also a master at The Arcanum and writes for Digital Photography School, SLR Lounge and his own blog.

Scott believes in sharing his knowledge any way possible and educating without fluff, in a straight to the point easy to understand style.

My friends at +ON1 are launching something I am SO excited for! https://t.co/aBBEegRluX
Why ON1 Photo RAW? The current class of RAW-based photo editors require photographers to catalog their photos, bounce between apps for editing, and forces them to work within the confines of their ecosystem. They haven't adapted their apps to work efficiently with today's popular 42- and ...

Karate is hard. Very hard. I'm proud of my brother-in-law for his first triumph! https://scottwyden.com/going-for-green/

Сложно научить мышей разговаривать. Вот это действительно сложно, а карате - это так; баловство, развлечение, хобби. Если я правильно понял: на фото твой брат и он сдал на зелёный пояс. Да он ещё даже белый пояс не заслужил. Что он делает? Это не карате - это танцы парализованной макаки. Когда научится "ходить" руками штаны поддерживая, вот только тогда можно начинать учить блоки, потом ката и уже после этого удары руками. А до изучения ударов ногами ему ещё года три, не меньше.

Affordable and top quality! Rich came to our house and explained the products and service efficiently, and clearly. He made it easy for anyone to understand. The install was fairly quick, maybe 3 hours total with one person. We have a small house so we didn't need much. But we paid for some add-ons which work great as well. I set off the alarm accidentally at first, and the call center was on top of it. So far so good, and we couldn't be happier with GPS!
