Stuck in a Paradigm

So many photographers are stuck in a paradigm.  (Paradigm – a typical example or pattern of something.)  Today I address those paradigms.

Often paradigms keep us in a neat little box.  People don’t like change, yet they often complain about issues resulting from their paradigm.

ACDSee Ultimate 2018

Long before there was Adobe Lightroom, there was ACDSee.  The latest version of it is ACDSee Ultimate 2018 (just released).  I think I was using ACDSee back in 2003 when it was just ACDSee (I want to say version 5).

New F2.0 Lens

I received my new f2.0 lens from B&H today.  Impressively small for a “normal” lens.  I expected it to be as big as the zoom lens I broke last week.  It’s difficult to tell from photos, but this is a great size for a prime 50mm equivalent lens.

Only a Distraction

Someone said color is only a distraction when it comes to good photography.  I put my camera in black and white mode and went out taking pictures.  It’s true.  You pay more attention to composition and lighting when shooting in B&W.  Color is a distraction.
