I know one of the most difficult things to photograph are kids. They get bored easily, don’t sit still, and they have a tendency to flash the same smile that you have seen in every school photo. I put together a few tips on this video for you to try this summer that will hopefully help you take better photos of your kids. Watch the video and let me know what you think with your comments.

Let’s just get down to it. One of the questions I am asked the most is “what is the difference between a “bridge” and a “professional “camera?” I know it can be very confusing when you are trying to get the most out of your camera investment. Especially nowadays when there are so many different choices.
It was just a few years back that the choices were instant cameras, point and shoots and professional cameras. Now the lines seem blurred from all of the additional camera versions on the market. Some of them seem so similar it can be confu... Continue Reading

The Canon T3i is a Canon classic that is an absolute fan favorite among our customer. The T3i is a camera that I have mentioned in many of my previous blogs and clearly you can tell that I have a lot of fun shooting with it. I want to take a moment and reiterate my fave features. First, it's as easy — if not easier — than a point-and-shoot camera. Canon put this awesome control knob on top so you can easily access picture settings like portrait mode, low light, and sports. Most other cameras — even point and shoots — don't have this feature. You usually need a map and t... Continue Reading

I was booked recently for a photoshoot involving one of my favorite subjects, babies! I find photographing babies is one of the most difficult and challenging photo sessions. The one and only tip I can give you is "be patient." You have to wait for them to be in the right mood . . .you know, not crying or eating. Oh, one more rule actually, be sure and waterproof the area you lay them in, they will go to the bathroom. So, protect the carpeting or your sofa etc.
Now about this beautiful baby Victoria. This is your first time meeting her, but you know her mom very well. She is our own Patio and... Continue Reading

I recently had an engagement photo session scheduled on location in and around our West Chester, PA area. Of course I was bringing my big, heavy DSLR to photograph the couple, along with all the accessories that a pro brings. As I was leaving the house I saw the Olympus SZ-31 point-and-shoot digital camera sitting on the counter. I decided to grab it and stick it in my camera bag, thinking I might pull it out and snap a pic or two.
During the photo shoot at a local farm, I gave the couple a break from posing and tried out the Olympus. I immediately fell in l... Continue Reading

Whenever someone asks me “what kind of camera should I buy?” I respond immediately with “well, what are you going to use it for?” I know it may seem like a simple question but it is the one thing a future camera owner doesn’t consider. “What am I going to use it for?” they look at me funny and say, “To take pictures Dave . . .”
Ok, but what kind of pictures and what are you going to do with them once you have the pictures? Is what most people do no think about when they want a new camera. I think it is very important to take into considera... Continue Reading

Just recently I was planning a photography session with a local family. We were going to utilize some local area farms for our scenery. Chester County, PA has so many beautiful places to choose from for photo shoots. From horse farms to rolling pastures, this area has so much to offer photographers. Well, at the last minute I got a call from the clients. They wanted to change the location to a local sunflower field. I thought it was a great idea. I knew the bright yellow colors of the sunflowers would match the energy of my family I was photographing.
We scheduled the photography shoot for a ... Continue Reading

I love it when things come full circle. Yesterday afternoon I was working with our video team. We were shooting video to showcase the Canon T4i. Whenever we intro a new product or feature it as a TSV. We try and add some online videos to help round out some of the on air presentations. I always love to step up and add some extra instruction or hidden goodies about cameras.
The team set up in downtown West Chester, PA right at the Municipal building. In fact I was excited because the video team was actually using the Canon T4i to record the video. I thought ”Wow!” this will really ... Continue Reading

Well it is finally that time of year when the leaves are starting to turn golden colors. That means it is a vivid landscape for some great photography. I thought I would blog about my top five tips of taking better pictures during this time of year.
Top Five for taking better “Fall Fotographs” . . . .
#5- Be Flexible- Here in Pennsylvania the leaves can take a long time to turn vivid colors and a very short time to be blown to the ground. I swear it always seems that just when all the trees are bursting with color, a darn storm comes along and blows them all down. I’m ... Continue Reading

I just had a great opportunity to revisit one of our best offerings of a point and shoot camera. Back in September we launched a TSV from Olympus that blew our customers away and flew out the door! Now, it is back my popular demand and it is only going to be offered here at QVC!
The Olympus SZ-14 has a huge amount of great features packed in to a small pocket size. Honestly, I think calling this camera “pocket sized” is misleading. Maybe “rocket sized” is more appropriate. This of course would refer to its powerful zoom, fast shutter speed and HD video.
The first thin... Continue Reading
