It’s Not So Easy — So Should I Give Up?

For all my (alleged, assumed) writing ability, I'm stumped. I needed to write an article, but the true purpose is to advertise a group's event (and the group). An advertorial. Articles go in for free (assuming they make it out of the slushpile). Free fits the budget. I'm pretty good at technical writing. I've been … Continue reading It’s Not So Easy — So Should I Give Up?

We'll skip the bit about me being a control freak and wanting to make my own trade-offs between f-stop and shutter speed. Memories of Dad's camera, my teenage trip camera, and the day at the zoo after Husband and I inherited Grandpa's, can be another post. Suffice to say I read the manual for the … Continue reading Cameras and a Baby Snail
