Welcome to Grab Shots - Just like grab shots in photography these will be just as random. It's a series of random thoughts about the photographic industry, people in general, business and life. I'm going to keep them short and do my best to "plant a few seeds".
I'm so tired of hearing photographers blame not having the right gear on the shots they miss. First of all, most often they haven't taken the time to know every aspect of the gear they have. Second, if you honestly need something and can't afford it, stop being embarrassed. Go rent it! It's not a crime to be short on cash, especially when you're just getting started. However, it is a crime to use "cash flow" as an excuse!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
