Ever since I received an awesome set of flash gels for Christmas, I have really been enjoying playing around with them and using them for creative lighting. For those of you who enjoy technical information, there's plenty of that in this post, and for those of you who just want the pictures, there are plenty of those too.

This is the first post in a series where I will be sharing some of my photos from years past. My love of photography first developed while I was a college student at SUNY Oswego, so I thought it fitting to share some of my Oswego photos first. I have gone back and reprocessed most of these photos with my current skills and software, but you will still most likely notice a progression in my skills (and my gear). You'll also see some photos I took when I went back to Oswego to visit in 2012.

I've gathered in this post a collection of my favorite photos conveying movement and motion in my hometown of Saratoga Springs, NY.

If you're a photographer who posts photos on the internet, chances are someone is using them without your permission, or in a way that you did not authorize. Unless you can find your photos being used, though, you can't do anything about it. That's where Pixsy comes in. Pixsy is a new service that searches the web for your photos, and, with your permission, seeks payment from infringers. I've already received payment for my first case, and I am about to receive payment for my second case. How much payment you receive depends upon the use of the photo. Here are a few things to know about Pixsy:
