Before digital cameras came along, you had to set your "F stop" to the proper setting to have the right exposure for your photos. There was a saying among photojournalists: "F8 and be there."--set your camera to F8, and get to the scene ready to go. Not that much has changed, really.

Welcome to the Observer's Photo Blog

Truth be told, I wanted to be a photojournalist when I grew up.


"If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough."

"The pictures are there, and you just take them."

Playing With Black and White

I set my point and shoot digital for black and white and shot a couple shots of the BoyCat. The top one is without flash--and jiggly. The bottom is with the flash (which makes the Boy close his eyes). I'd forgotten some of the fun of black and white. I might try it in some other applications!
