Art Silverglate gave me a software education on the PhotoPlus Expo show floor, so I invited him to share his knowledge with you.

When it comes to software, I am a simple guy. I was an early adopter to Apple's Aperture software, the software created for photo professionals. I have also been using Adobe Photoshop since the early days. Between the two programs, most of my needs were met. Or so I thought.

In an idle moment at the show, I mentioned to Art that I will need to change to LightRoom since Apple announced it would no longer support Aperture.

The lesson I got on LightRoom and all the other major photography software options was so extensive that I thought he should share it with you.

If you are wondering about which photo software is right for you, listen to my interview with Art Silverglate.

I wasn't sure what to expect when my 16-year-old son texted me that he wanted to talk. That can go so many ways.

The talk ended up being more like a photography coaching session. He wanted to know how he could improve his photography, so that he could position himself better for a career in video.

Many of us have variations of the same question. How can I create photography that will make an impact, even if I don't think my skills are there yet.

I'll share what I told him because it might help someone else.

In a conversation this past weekend — and so many more over the years — I have held back from strongly making the case. No more.

If you are a photographer, you need a photo blog.

This needs to be said because on my latest survey, more than 88 percent of you admitted that you had no photo blog.

I’ve hinted and suggested. Now I’ll just tell you. Here’s why you need a photo blog in 2016.

It’s always interesting to hear what other people think about you.

Most of us go about our lives — doing our work — with the intention of giving our best. Every now and then when you hear how someone else interprets your actions, it can make you pause. It might even make you change.

Your feedback made me pause and change. This episode focuses on what you said, what I heard, and what changes you can expect as a result.
