By now most of us are trained to resist the salesperson’s final question. “Do you need any bags, batteries, filters to go with that camera?"

We know it is the equivalent of “do you need fries with that that?”

Before you politely reply, “no thank you. I’ll take that Canon 5D Mark III to go,” consider purchasing these useful accessories.

You know that great photo you took? The one you really love? You shared it on Facebook and on your blog. I think you might have even won some awards for it. That one.

It's easier than ever for someone to steal it and share it as their own. Some people will even sell it as if they created it. It can and probably will happen to you.

What are you going to do about it? Here are 13 suggestions and one radical one for good measure.

If you are surfing between Instagram, Facebook, Flickr and other social media platforms wondering what is the best way to use social media for your photography, then Jenna Martin has some advice for you.

Jenna Martin built a successful photography business promoting her underwater photography using largely online platforms.

Social media can be an effective tool for photographers. In this episode, Jenna shares her favorite platforms, how she uses each differently, and what strategies work best for photographers.

I interviewed Jenna while she was holding her new four-month-old baby, Leila. They both have plenty to say. :-)

In episode 52, I spoke with Joe Newman about his experience creating a photography Meetup and community for DC Focused. Joe gave me so much good information about the Meetup, but we also talked about his experience creating the DC Focused photography blog. You can hear that part of the interview in this bonus to episode 52. Here is Joe Newman on the DC Focused blog.

By any objective standard, Joe Newman is not the kind of guy you expect to see leading a photography Meetup. He describes himself as a shy introvert and is very uncomfortable describing himself as a photographer.

Yet, in the last year, Joe has built a fast growing and very engaged group of photographers around his Meetup group and blog, DC Focused. 

The DC Focused photography community lives on Meetup, Facebook, Instagram and Flickr. Their Meetups are not just photo walks but challenges and an opportunity to be published.

A funny thing happened on Joe's journey to leading the new photography community, he became known as a photographer and became better at his craft.
