Remembering Florida Nature Photographer and Graphic Designer, Linda King
By Tom Tracy
A much-loved local photographer and digital imaging/Photoshop technician, Linda wasn’t particularly associated with wedding photography, nor was she crazy about the physical nature of wedding jobs, but I had seen her solid work and dedication to excellence, and I predicted she would be one of the very best persons I could possibly enlist.
As a trying-to-recover work-a-holic, I am always looking for ways to streamline my business and to get more done with less time. The photography business is extremely competitive so there will never be a time to "rest on your laurels". So to stay competitive (and stay in business), photographers really need to study productivity and think outside of box for ways to be more efficient. This article in "Daily Bits Of" is really helpful!
Tom Tracy, a photojournalist and event photographer, recently photographed a heavy metal band at a children's charity gala. In order to protect his hearing, he took special measures to reduce the effects of the loud music on his ears.

Did you know that Understand Photography holds a free** photowalk every single month?
We say "almost free" because although we do not charge, sometimes there is an entrance fee to where ever we are going.
