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 #19

Notice some black dot or line on your might have a dirty sensor.  The computer inside your camera has a electric charge that loves to attract dirt and dust!  If you're not sure if it's a dirty sensor, take a picture of a white wall (if you can use a low aperture 'high number').  If you don't change your lenses or don't have that option with your camera chances are you wont have an issue, it's hard for the elements to get in a point and shoot camera.  But here are a few tips to keep from getting that dirty sensor if you do change lenses:
  • Turn your camera off when you want to change lenses and have your lens ready to swap when you're changing.
  • Avoid changing in windy, wet or dusty situations.
  • Hold your camera open end down so nothing that can just fail in and keep it open as little as possible.
  • With a blower, blow off the back side of your lens before putting it on your camera.  If your camera is dirty you can clean that off as well.  Keep the dust away as much as possible with switching.
  • Cleaning your sensor is a source of debate.  Some say you can't do it yourself and have to do a professional cleaning.  Only thing I'll say is DO NOT EVER touch your sensor, rub it with a standard q-tip or freeze it with can air.  Those are the top mistakes people make.  I've been lucky and any issues I've had I have used a hand held air pump and lightly blown off any dust.
