This is the second photographer's blog I've read today that reinforces the virtues and necessities of simple problem solving in photography. While I don't think I've solved any problems by reading the blogs, I'm a little more excited about the next time I'm out there...

Marshall, thanks for the note. Here's the tow lessons in short form.

One, buy and carry a reflector. Or a reflector/diffuser combo. You can solve a raft of problems with that one item.

Two, real professional photographers (like me) use some pretty simple techniques a lot of times. But you'd never guess it from all the stuff you read on the photo blogs. I swear you'd think you can't take a picture without six cases of lights and three assistants from all the stuff you read. Sounds sexy but it just ain't so.

Bill, thanks for asking. From what I see on the Traveler Seminars website it looks like online registration is open right now.

Go here: http://ngtravelerseminars.com/photo.cfm
