The Holidays and the end of 2020:

I read ” how cruel to have daylight savings time in 2020, to add an extra hour to this year is just not right.” Not that I wish away time, especially at my age, but it has a been a challenging year for all of us A positive attitude ( which is not always easy) and the openness to learn new skills and knowledge can help.

For me there have been some highlights. My photograph ” Lake Phewa, Nepal” garnered three awards: Best of 2019 ASMP award ( second place) ; Nominee for the Master’s Cup (International Color Awards ) and a finalist for the prestigious Communication Arts 2020 Photography Competition. If you are interested in purchasing a signed print contact with the size you want and I will let you know the price.

The Award Winning Photography. ” Phewa Lake, Nepal ” by Steven H. Begleiter 2019

The year 2020 also was the year I authored by sixth book ” Photographic Lighting for Everybody ” Amherst Media June 2020. I am proud to say that it reached #16 of all the lighting books sold on Amazon and has a 6 star rating. For those unfamiliar with the book, it is written for photo enthusiasts and semi-pros who want to know how to improve their photos on their smartphones, DSLR and Mirrorless digital cameras. I break down my 40 years of photographic experience and knowledge to what I feel is the essence of creating better photos. You can purchase the book from Amazon at in book form or digital form by going to :
