Welcome to my blog!

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and taking a peak.  Now I never claim to know everything, or be perfect, or even being able to spell!  I work really hard to not only be a good photographer, but have a personal connection to my clients and understanding what they want (especially when they might not know).  In addition I love to help others improve their own pictures.  Let's face one can afford a personal photographer to follow them around 24/7 (but if you do know someone give them my name!). 

My blog has a collection of advise, current photo experiences and the personal updates.  My new 2012 series (TT- Tipsy Thursday) is a combo of all kinds of questions I've received, things I've seen & even those mistakes I've made in my years of shooting.  I'm ALWAYS in need to know what other people want to hear about, so please email me with ANY suggestions.  Again thanks for stoping by and hopefully you enjoy!

 Tipsy Thursday #13

UV filters are a simple glass cover you screw on to the end of your lens.  There are all kinds of filters you can add, but this does nothing to enhance your image...just protect the vulnerable end of your lens.  There is a big debate with photographers about using UV filters on their lenses.  One side of the debate is by putting this simple filter on, you protect the lens and in fact your large investment.  If something hits the end, you loose the $20 item and not the $2000 item.  But the other side of the debate is the quality you are getting by shooting threw the UV filter.  Some photographers think your are sacrificing the quality of the $2000 lens by putting on a cheap $20 protection you might never need.

Here is my two cents...I get scratches ALL the time on my sun glasses and I can't afford to buy new lenses like I
 buy sun glasses!  Maybe if I was shooting high fashion shoots and have assistants assigned to secure my equipment I would be able to get away from a UV filter.  However I'm only human and I shoot very active kids/pets and will use that protection on all my lenses!!
