When I was younger and had more time on my hands, one of my favorite activities was going to Manhattan with my camera and taking lots of pictures. It was an expensive hobby (remember film and processing costs?) but so very rewarding. Now, with digital cameras, there is immediate gratification and little or no printing cost. ZDNet has a nice article by Rachel King called “How-To Photograph Tips: Summer Edition Round-Up.” Check it out for pointers on how to take better beach pictures, photograph fireworks, vacation photos, sporting events and more. Keep those memories alive!
