your photography questions?


about every day i field questions -- either left in comments here or via email -- that are photography-related. and while i'm not the upmost, final authority on the matter...i have learned a thing or two over the years and can chat a bit about my style of photoshooting! so, i think i'm going to make it a little easier on us all and write up a photography FAQ + responses post -- which i'll come back + update from time to time, and stick over on ye olde sidebar.

so! if any of you have had a lingering photography-related question -- equipment, editing, composition, camera recommendations, anything! -- leave it in the comments below + i'll be sure to get to it in the post. ok? go!
