I’m going to start with a preemptive “No, not because the iPad 2 has a camera.” because, let’s face it, the camera in the iPad is crap.

A couple of weeks ago, Craig Ferguson invited me to write a guest post on his blog. It was something I felt somewhat honored to do since I both find him to be an excellent photographer and his blog to be incredibly useful.
