About

Creative Photography with a seasoning of Mindfulness.

Hello and Welcome.
My name is A.J, but you can call me A.J

Me as a cowboy

I – your humble host and coordinator – want to welcome you into the community here at Carpe Diem.

Since being crafted in 1958 I’ve managed to see and experience quite a bit of America and Europe, where I currently reside.
I’ve been a hobby photographer 23 years now and moving into creative photography with a DSLR was one of the best things i ever did.

Carpe Diem is about photography; Basic knowledge, Composition, Exposure, Lighting, software, Flash, Tips, Book and Blog reviews and… and…

My goal is to help anyone who wants to understand more about photography than just making snapshots in automatic mode. So i will begin with the basics and attempt to cover all there is to know in time.

Since I’ve been living in mindfulness for many years, the topic of present moment awareness will inevitably come through on occasion.

Comments; Almost anything will get through my filter – positive, negative, critic – however I wish no profanity, spam or flame wars in the community. If I censor or do not post a comment, I will let the author know why.

My day job keeps me from investing as much time as I would like to and there is still a lot to be done. Most importantly there are articles to be written and published that you should – if I do it right – find interesting and informative. Patience please, we will get there moving forward.

Please respect my property. All pictures and text here are my own unless otherwise noted.
An exception is the yin yang symbol i picked up from stock.
If you are interested in the high resolution copy of an image, just talk to me. Send me an email and find out if i bite or not.

Thanks for listening with your eyes.
