Submit Your Questions Here

Hi Everyone,

I receive emails everyday from all over the world. I never thought I would be saying this, but it's true. I can't believe that I can reach out and communicate with people in Australia, Brazil,United Kingdom...just to name a few. It's really AWESOME!

Since I released a few Free videos about getting started in a Photography Business, people have been watching them and wanting more. There's always going to be questions. I've been doing my best to get back to everyone, but it's getting to the point where there just isn't enough time in the day.

I will try and answer your questions here or in future videos.

The Benefits of having questions public, is that everyone can listen in on the conversation. Everyone can learn from each other this way. This is very powerful for people just getting started.

So, let's use this space to ask the questions or post your comments. I'll do my best to answer your questions and keep it real simple.

NOTE: Go to the bottom of this page and use the "Post Comment" link to leave your question or comment.

Talk to ya soon!


After I did my first Podcast I kinda laughed at myself. I sounded like a DJ in the beginning when I say "New Photo Biz Buzz" You gotta listen to it.

Photoshop Lesson 7 - Using Cover-Up Layer

Hi Everyone,

I actually created this video lesson for a product we sell on Ebay at the moment. After I created this short tutorial, I thought It would be helpful to everyone here as well.

This lesson talks about creating and using a Cover-Up layer.

Now if you Google that term, you probably won't discover much info. The reason is, that I kinda made this term up. It's one of those things that I just created to make my life easier when using different digital props.

This is something that you can better understand by seeing real examples of it being used.

So, watch the video below and I'll explain.

Photoshop Lesson 6 - Shallow Depth Of Field

Photoshop Lesson 6 - Shallow Depth Of Field

What is Shallow Depth Of Field?

Depth Of Field is when your subject is in focus and your background and sometimes the foreground is out of focus. This will draw the eye into the subject and create a nice portrait look.

You can create this effect using a small f-stop in your camera like f-4.5 and having your subject positioned further away from the background. A longer lens also helps achieve this effect.

In Photoshop you can create this effect whenever you see fit.

In this Lesson I will show how you can add a nice Shallow Depth Of Field effect to most any portrait.

Check out lesson 6 and watch how easy it is to give your pictures that professional portrait look.
