The Better Digital Photography Tips website is a free resource for you to dive into anytime you want. Unlike your own human photography mentor, who is not always available, this photography tips website is open 24 hours every day, 7 days each week, and 365 days a year.
I want you to be inspired about your photography as much as I am. Ever since my cancer diagnosis, I've had a burning desire to have a positive impact on the world before I die. It sounds corny, but I honestly believe photography is a powerful communication tool that we can use for the betterment of the world. I hope you'll join me!
You and I, we're very fortunate to be able to use really advanced camera equipment and software to create truly stunning photography. You can use your unique viewpoint, apply the information from this website, work your magic with decent camera equipment and you can take photos that matter.

Shockingingly, it's not a staff of professional writers, internet gurus, or website designers. It's mostly just me, Bruce Lovelace, the camera geek. I plastered my photo all over the website, so you could see I am a real photographer, not a professional web guy.
I do have a confession, though. I started the website with this crazy idea that I could make money by blogging about photography. Oh boy! Ever have one of those clarifying moments when you found out you were in way over your head? Well, let's just say it's been an interesting journey, but more on that later. First, why should you listen to my thoughts about photography and camera gear?
This is the place you can learn a lot and improve your photography dramatically. You can learn to take jaw-dropping photographs, no really you can! Will it happen instantly? Of course. I've been working on improving my photography for over 50 years. It does take some time. But, the tools you have at your disposal are good plentiful.
What's the magic formula? It's simple math. Add these 3 components together and your percentage of successful photos will multiply.
My mission for the website is to inspire people with the magic of digital photography. Yeah, you read that right my friend. I said the magic of digital photography. You see, it's like this. My photography started in a darkroom with a yellow safelight, negatives, chemicals, and an enlarger. It was a serious undertaking.
Digital photography is so convenient. To me, it truly is magical. You get instant feedback, you can modify it instantly, and you can share your photographs with the entire world instantly and for free. My own personal mission is to inspire you to use photography to have a positive impact on the world.
I don't know. You can be the judge on that one. If I were looking to teach at a university and applied for a job as a photography professor, here's what I would highlight on my resume:
Get inspired and to enjoy a few recent photos I've taken recently and added to my Pinterest page. Feel free to add your favorite your own Pinterest board.
I have various galleries of some of my work, spread out on various platforms. In addition to the ones scattered all over this website, you can see more of my images on various other platforms:
It takes a lot of time to cover the new options with camera equipment as well as a lot of effort update some of the older articles. I'm like you-busy with lots of activities, so I can use all the help I get. Here's how you can help.
There's a third way you can help. I receive a little income when you make a purchase-usually photography related products-after clicking on one of the links to a photography retailer. Those links are called affiliate links. If you're considering ordering something from a retailer, please use one of those links.
As an example, see this search box for Amazon ----->
If you use it, and are shopping for something, and decide to buy ANYTHING, I get a little financial thank you from Amazon. It costs you nothing and it won't earn me boatloads of cash, but every little bit helps and I do appreciate it.
Some of the other posts on this site have other affiliate links to other sellers like ebay, Adorama, and DPS. It works the same way. If you use any one of them it costs you nothing, but it helps me.

SHOOT. SHOOT. SHOOT. Like any other profession or hobby, the more you participate, then the more you will learn. You can only get so much benefit from reading my rantings and the tips on photography from other sources. The single best way to improve is to practice, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring.
Unlike practicing good dental hygiene by brushing regularly, you can make digital photography fun. I guarantee you when you see an amazing photograph taken by a professional photographer, that successful photo was preceded by many other not-so-successful photographs first.
