“I’ve lost my photo passion!”
I hear many photographers that burn out creatively.
There are many remedies.
One is to look for inspiration.
In this month’s Exposed! Photo Newsletter we look at our reader’s new suggestions for inspiration from the web. A big thanks to our readers for continuing to send links that inspire and engage, creatively.

This month we link to:
• Stunning views of Iceland
• 6+ years of a selfie-a-day
• Tech news from Apple
• Photoshop variations from around the world
• A video interview of a National Geographic adventure photographer
… and more.
Good question! Creativity is an intangible seed that grows under varied and unusual ways. What works for a creative scientist may not work for an artist but there are common, underlying elements that help unleash creativity.
This month we explore one of the ideas – unstructured daydreaming and aimless wandering.
Recently, I was approached by a biplane pilot I had photographed years ago for a stock assignment. He wanted reprints and I offered a digital file and permission to reproduce…
He wanted to print the photo at home.
That makes me nervous!
Printing is tougher than people realize and I often hear “the printer is broken” or “the file is bad.” Usually, the problem is somewhere else… and this month we help you navigate the printing process to help you decide what to do.
Photos are easy to make – aim and click. Almost everybody has a camera device and there are trillions of, erm, bad photos out there.
Good photos take time and patience and learning…
How would you:
• make white snow white? (most people produce gray snow)
• make a waterfall turn into a milky smooth masterpiece?
• showing a hint of motion in the water and oars while keeping the boat and background crisp?
Regular photo tips can help!
In this edition of Exposed! we offer some of the most important (and fun) tips.
