Welcome to the "new" Starving Photographer website

Thank you for visiting the new and improved StarvingPhotographer.com. If this is your first visit, welcome! If you’ve been here before, you’ll notice a drastic change in both format and content. This website has been completely revamped, hopefully making it more user friendly and informative. Here’s a list of the major changes I’m really excited about:

• A brand new “look” to the entire website
• Addition of this blog section
• Better organization of photos, complete with categories, keywords and geotags
• Easier gallery navigation, with ability to see images at various sizes
• A robust search function
• A streamlined ordering process, with many more options for print sizes and merchandise

For this first blog, I wanted to briefly mention my recent foray into bird photography. I’ve made a not-so-insignificant investment in a new camera body and a large telephoto lens. Landscapes will always be my first love, but I’m beginning to be wooed by bird/wildlife photography. Here’s an image of me behind my “monster” gear:

Canon 1D Mark III, 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS lens, (100mm, f/6.3, 1/400 sec, ISO 800), Photograph by Ray Still

And here is what I was photographing:

Canon 7D, 1.4X Extender, 600mm f/4L IS lens, (f/5.6, 1/640 sec, ISO 200)

In the coming weeks and months, I will be blogging about interesting and photogenic locations, photoshop tips/tutorials, upcoming arts and crafts shows I’ll be participating in, and just about anything remotely related to photography. So, please have a look around and stop by often. Feel free to leave comments or ask questions, and I promise to respond as quickly as I can.

    I love the “cleanness” of the layout and artistic design. Of course your photos are awesome and a palate to soothe the soul. Works fine on Safari for me. Thanks for the beauty.

    Larry, thanks a ton for your kind words. I also appreciate your taking the time to explore the site with Safari. I’m on Mac OSX myself using Safari, and didn’t find any problems, but it’s nice to get that verified. :D
