Your Life Is a Collage of Images...

By Ron Rosenberg

Why do we take pictures? Whether it’s an expansive shot of the Grand Canyon taken on a family vacation, an advertising photo of a new product, or just a selfie of you and your friends having drinks after work, it’s all about the story.

The objective is to capture the essence of each experience in a single frame, like the images above from our travels over the last few years. There's a story behind each more...

How Do You Deal with Overload?

By Ron Rosenberg

One of the issues we all face is the overwhelming weight of everything we have to get done. Between work, family, and personal obligations, it can seem almost impossible to get anything done. So we use calendars, checklists, and to-do lists to try and at least keep everything organized – hoping that nothing “falls through the cracks” that could later turn into a crisis.

Sometimes, though, the sheer volume of tasks can be enough more...

How Do You See the World?

By Ron Rosenberg

In many ways, photography is a microcosm of life. Creating a memorable image requires awareness of your situation, proper planning, technical expertise, artistic license, and proper execution.

Two people can take the same picture from the same location and get vastly different results - and for a very wide variety of reasons.

The Beauty of Reciprocity

By Ron Rosenberg

Welcome back! It's been a while since we've posted, and we've been busy with several new projects we'll be sharing with you over the next few months.

It's also been a been a busy time in our personal lives - I celebrated a big birthday last week, and Lorie and I just returned from a cruise to the Greek Islands to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We took the opportunity to renew our vows, saw some incredibly beautiful sights, and had some more...

What's Your Backup Plan?

J-MUSIC Pocket Trio - Nick Stoner Inn-5By Ron Rosenberg

We're very fortunate to have an annual music festival that brings an incredible group of classical, jazz, and bluegrass musicians to a small lakeside community in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York.

One of our favorites is Patrick Bartley, and his J-Music Pocket Band. Having grown up playing video games, he decided to take the background music tracks of his favorite video games and arrange them for different configurations of his jazz groups.

What Kind of Camera Do You Have?

West Lake SunsetBy Ron Rosenberg

What do you do to break out of the status quo...that creative rut that keeps you from reaching your full potential at work and in life?

For us, it's our place on the lake. Spending part of our summer in the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York has some definite advantages.

The change in scenery brings a change in perspective. Spending time with our "lake friends" - who live the rest of the year across the country and across the world more...

A Simple Formula for Success

Studying.By Ron Rosenberg

As I'm writing this article, we've just rounded the corner into a new year.

I've always found it curious that the changing of the year seems to be the time when people take stock of their lives and try to make big changes in the form of New Year's Resolutions.

In fact, I just saw a cartoon on Facebook, where one character asks, "What's a New Year's resolution?" and the other character answers, "It's what you do the first three weeks of January."

Money...or Friends?

By Ron Rosenberg

Don't worry, this isn't some "ethical challenge" about choosing between making money at the expense of friendship, but, rather, an interesting take on how an unexpected situation can open up new opportunities.

If you've been on a plane recently, you've probably noticed that, more often than not, the flight is completely full - or if not, then it has only a few empty seats. This, of course, is very good news for the airlines, since a full plane generates significantly more revenue than one that's more...

Do You Know Your Community?


By Ron Rosenberg

If you're not taking advantage of all the resources in your community, then you're seriously limiting the scope and reach of what you can offer to your customers, clients, and members.

There are so many examples of the power of community that it's difficult to select just one to share, but there is a fantastic example that illustrates virtually everything that's possible when you connect with these valuable resources.

The Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York are very special, especially more...
