Museum photography certainly involves some challenges. Some objects are behind glass, some objects have odd lighting, and some are difficult to frame correctly because they're in a location where it's difficult for you to shoot at the angle you want.
Then you have to worry about which photography equipment and camera gear you're allowed to use. Some museums will not allow certain pieces of camera gear, such as tripods.

While many people have made use of a point and shoot digital camera as their first camera, some people will choose to start their photography hobby with a DSLR camera, such as the Nikon D5300 pictured here.
Perhaps those people just want to be certain they'll always have top-end image quality from their camera, while others may have used a 35mm film camera in the past and have just now decided to make the jump to digital photography.
Using a DSLR camera for the first time requires the photographer to think about a lot of things that they maybe can ignore with a simple point and shoot camera. Click the link to read my latest article containing tips for using a DSLR camera for the first time, and you'll hopefully have a successful photographic experience!

If you received a Pentax camera recently -- or if you've owned one for quite a while -- please consider sharing your experiences with that camera through a "user review" of a Pentax camera.
Although I have a chance to review quite a large number of cameras, I don't have the time or resources to review every Pentax camera that's manufactured, so I'm hoping those of you reading this site can post your thoughts on cameras you own, which will help all of the site's readers as they're trying to find great cameras to purchase. Good experiences and bad experiences are both welcomed.
Just click the link below to enter your camera's information, which should require only 3-5 minutes. And, if you own a non-Pentax camera, you can find user review forms for other models on the Camera Reviews page.

If you're looking for a fun app that can give you some information on the photography habits of the general public, the free Pic A Moment app is an interesting option.
Pic A Moment allows you to perform an automatic search of the database of Instagram photos to look for a specific time and date and/or specific location. The app then will show you all of the photos on Instagram that meet your criteria.
Instalook is a similar app that costs $0.99 and allows you to search Instagram photos tied to a particular location. Both apps are available through iTunes.
