The Fight to Save the Princeton Battlefield

As you read this, bulldozers tear into the Princeton Battlefield, one of our nation’s most historic sites. At this battlefield in 1777, Gen. George Washington staged a daring counterattack to save the American Revolution, which appeared to be lost less than two weeks before. Now this hallowed site is at risk to make way for a faculty housing project by the Institute of Advanced Study (unaffiliated with Princeton University). SP Consulting is proud to work with the Civil War Trust to protect America’s historic battlefields from encroaching development. In his recent column in the Washington Post, George Will comments on Gen. George Washington’s valiant charge at Princeton to turn the tide of the American Revolution and the fight to preserve this battlefield. You can join the charge and save the Princeton Battlefield by joining the thousands who signed a letter requesting the Institute to cease construction.

3 iPhone Camera Tips to Help You Take Better Photos

There is a saying that “the best camera is the one you have with you.” The quote by Chase Jarvis is one that has defined the recent world of mobile photography and videography. With the rise of Instagram, VSCOcam, and other photography and video apps, the shift towards mobile has become inevitable. Many consumers are now ditching their clunkier cameras for the ones right in their pockets, and for good reason. The image quality coming from mobile cameras, like Apple’s recently announced iPhone SE, is already on par or better than some of the latest digital cameras.
