Last Copies of Our Fine Art Book

We recently went digging into our closet to pull out some more copies of our fine art book – Lobster Island – to send out, and realized that we’re down to the final boxes!

Holy smokes! It’s been a pretty amazing sight to see these go off into the mail, sharing our experience documenting lobster fishing in Prince Edward Island. It’s not something we ever thought we’d actually witness – a book of our own, being shared with others. And to say it’s been a rewarding journey is to put it mildly!

10 Reasons Why You NEED to Learn Composition

Composition is one of the most important skills for any photographer to learn. Straight up. No joke.

It’s all about how to decide what to include and exclude from your photo, and how to arrange it all to create the strongest image possible.

But I’ll confess, I totally neglected my composition study for many years. I thought it seemed boring. I knew the Rule of Thirds so I figured I was set.

It became clear that composition was the most important photography topic I would ever study.

Why is it so important? Allow me to give you a reason, or two, or ten.
