Just saw a great article by Alex Garcia, of the Chicago Tribune, entitled:

Tuesday Tips: 10 Key Traits of Winning Photojournalists 

Had to share with my readers as so many points are spot on.  I realize it is from 2010, but some things are ageless.

I am going to list his top ten but you must read the full article for his explanations.

  1. A lone wolf orientation
  2. Single, or have a flexible family life
  3. An Immovable Faith in the Power of an Image
  4. Fearless
  5. Fast and Decisive
  6. Ability to Self-Edit
  7. Competitive, Very
  8. Clever
  9. Relentless
  10. Anointed

As an award winner in several photo contests I can attest most, if not all attributes, are required for an award winning entry.

After a trip back from Madison, Wisconsin I decided rather than posting on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media will try to concentrate more on my blog. Especially after reading the latest terms of services from Facebook. More on that in another blog post.

Was reading Jim Colton’s blog and saw this great quote:

I have often said that a good picture has to be “affective” to be “effective.” A truly great image causes a visceral reaction within us. It makes us mad, it makes us cry, it makes us laugh – it makes us feel something.  If an image hasn’t done one of those things, then it hasn’t done its job.

Totally agree, enough said.

Another recent story that I found of interest on Yahoo~

Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo brings video-game design to reality

make sure you check out the gallery~ sweet concept images 🙂 Put it on the Christmas list.

My nephew and I continue to track where people have checked in to the blog. We have one continent left Antarctica.

Hope to get visitors from Iceland, Greenland, and more of the African countries… feel free to forward to friends in those countries 😉

Am going to try and update this blog on a more consistent basis so stay tuned and thanks again for stopping!

Badger football by PSB Foto ~ November 14, 2013

November 14, 2013~

It’s been a while since I updated the blog so a quick note or two.

I have another Badger football game this weekend against Indiana. After attending last weekends Badger football game have to share how impressed I was with the singer of the National Anthem, Skylar Stecker, left me impressed to say the least. After doing some research found out her parent’s recently moved to Southern California from Wisconsin in order to pursue her career. Interesting to say career when referring to an 11-year-old but if her parents are good with it so be it. An article by Doug Moe of the Wisconsin State Journal on the Stecker story. Her voice and stage presence belie her age.  Will be fun to see where her career takes her.
