Thought of the day: I just finished reading Brian Peterson's insightful photography book "Understanding Exposure". It's an interesting book to read and I learned quite a few things from it. With the availability of powerful photo editing tools, it's so easy for one to get lazy and start to rely on post-processing to make the pictures exactly right. It's a real art to get the exposure right, on site, on camera. If you can see the image you would like to capture and do your best to capture it - right there, right then - you have the best chance of actually getting the image you want. It can improve your quality of life too - instead of spending countless hours in front of a computer screen touching up photos, you get to spend that time with your precious family instead.
