FakersThere are a lot of fakers within PPA. A few years ago I was having dinner with a vendor representative. We were talking about the speakers at PPA conventions. The rep said something to the effect, Brent, don't let them (referring to some of the speakers) fool you. We know who bounces checks and have their credit cards declined on a regular basis. They may fill the room when they speak, but they don't have the money to pay their bills.Business wise, these spe ......

I bid farewell to PPA (Professional Photographers of America) today. I've been a member close to 15 years, and it doesn't make sense to belong to an organization that (a) is for professional photographers (of which I'm no longer), (b) has no program for members who become disabled, but still want to keep abreast of things, and lastly (c) is in a tailspin.Unlike an employer with a disability package, PPA has nothing for members who become disabled and can't work any more. They have a ......

I saw the new Disney movie Dumbo last night. While I completely understand the complexity of CGI (having been a computer programmer and photographer), I don't think I have the patience to do what those professionals do.Since being stricken with myasthenia gravis I have been dabbling with 3D on my computer. Not that I am even remotely interested in doing animation. I'm more interested in creating 3D worlds and then moving the virtual camera around looking for that best shot ......

What Photography Instructors Fail to Teach is that there is more to composition than they will admit. While the last few years have been full of adversity in my life, it has given me time to study things I might not otherwise study. One of those things is art.Most photographers view photography as a form of art. There is no doubt that it is, but if you are going to call it art, it should be treated as art. Instead, many photographers stick to the same old concepts of phot ......

2019 - What will it bring?It's difficult to say. This was going to the year photography by db walton would have been recreated. Well, little did I know a year ago that would all come to an abrupt halt.There's no telling what will happen. Only God knows. But, for me, with my businesses closing and my physical abilities being impaired, it means learning how to cope and manage my myasthenia gravis.While I first got sick in January of 2018, it wasn't until August that we really kne ......
Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!While I love the tradition of giving gifts, baking goodies, carolling, Santa, and all those things that go with this time of year, I hope we remember why we celebrate Christmas. Without Christ, there would be no Christmas. There would be no forgiveness. There would be no salvation for mankind.If everyone followed Christ's teachings all year long, there would be no crime, war, hatred, divorce, sin, etc. He has had the most profound effect on people ......

So, it's a whole new life... or at least a new blog. Somehow I screwed things up on the old blog, and if I ever figure out how to get it back, I'll post a link to the old postings.Perhaps the new blog is a good thing. Myasthenia gravis now runs my life. While I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to control it, there are days when I feel like it controls me.Frustration is bad for MG. When I screwed up my blog, frustration kicked in, and that was followed by tremo ......
