Water Droplets

One of the first things I ever did with my camera was take these pictures of dropping a cherry in wine glass filled with green tinted water. It was far more experimental than precise, and my depth of field wasn't spot on. This post at strobist has me encouraged to try again.

I'm catching up on the Photoblog. I've just added a series of photos that gets me through June 13 - they're a series of photos from a trip we took to a dairy farm. Check them out - http://photos.nslog.com/ - if you get the chance. I hope to post more and either catch up to […]

Affect vs. Effect

Golf Channel, as much as I love (errr, well, let's go with "like") you, you've never really been one to have the greatest of chirons. If I watch you for an hour or so when you're not showing infomercials, I can almost always spot a typo or mistake in your graphics.

Spotted outside of the local Red Lobster: Guy can afford a Corvette, but not a dictionary1?!?! At least it doesn't say "its". Yeah, "wannabe" is in my dictionary, even though it's slang. It's online too. [↩]

78 Photography Rules

Though this list is mostly funny, a few are true and apply to even skilled photographers. Yet others are dead wrong (I'm looking at you, #7).

300mm with 2x Extender

Here's an image - ISO 200, 1/250, f/5.6, IS on, monopod1 - with the 300mm f/2.8L IS lens and the Canon 2x extender. Like I said before: suitable for the web, but I'm not sure you're going to want to go make a ton of 8x10s out of them or anything. Regardless, there may still […]

2009 Memorial Tournament

I'm once again attending the 2009 Memorial Tournament. I'm looking forward to trying out my 300mm f/2.8 lens with the 2x extender. Results last year with the 1.4x were quite good, and though I'm not expecting tack-sharp shots with the 2x, I think they should be more than good enough for web-based publication. With two […]

LensAlign

The LensAlign Pro is a $140 system that basically offers a plane on which you focus your camera's lenses and a ruler, tilted back at an angle, so that you can measure how much your camera front- or rear-focuses. I've borrowed one from my buddy Josh (as I suspect a lot of people will be […]

Yippee! First I saw it was at JDD's blog. A snippet from the linked articles: Allowing EOS 5D Mark II owners to achieve even more stunning video results with the camera, the firmware update will include the following manual controls when shooting video: Full aperture selection ISO speed: Auto, 100 - 6400 and H1 Shutter […]

Almost Out of Pictures

I'm almost out of pictures for the photoblog. I don't tend to take many photos from January through March, and I've got plenty of flower pictures, so I'm hoping to avoid taking too many of those this spring.

2x Extender

It is now mine… along with the 1.4x. So now I have (effectively) a 600mm f/5.6 lens. Will be great for shooting golf, I tell ya. Though I may end up using it more at 420mm and f/4.

Fortunately, taking this photo did not cause the iPhone broken.

I really like photos like this, but I never see them in my own day-to-day life.

New Desktops for March, 2009

I'm jumping the gun by about an hour, but I've posted new Desktops for March, 2009. Get them while you can. Just three this month.

No Shots in February

Just realized something… I've taken no artistic photographs (i.e. non-family/scrapbooking type photos) in the month of February. Then again, how many pictures of snow can you really take in a year? 😛 Busy month. I could have taken shots in the "studio" but never found the time.
