    Pretty much everyone takes photos… at some level. So, to ask the question, “what’s the point?,” the answers will vary. A lot. In the spirit of the game show, Family Feud, I’m going to guess our audience says…. memories. Ding, ding, ding… #1. #2… to share with friends. #3… it’s fun. #4….to make a living. #5… I’m an artist!The thing I find interesting is, #5… I’m an artist, is probably considered the most smug, elitist, self absorbed answer on the survey. Yet… that answer… that person… actually can claim ownership of all the other answers. And while I…

      Constable Mike Moyer. Professional Actor Professional Actor   I had an interesting discussion with another photographer over coffee this morning. He had brought his memory card with several different pictures and as we talked about his shots he asked, “What is your favorite photography subject?” Like many other photographers, what I like best changes with whatever I’m currently photographing, and I enjoy photographing just about everything. But in truth most of my subjects in the past 40 years have been people. My reply was, “I enjoy photographing people.” I’ve been…

    If you’ve been playing with Photos for OS X, you may have discovered by now that when you delete a picture, Photos always prompts you to be sure you’re sure. Turns out there’s a very easy way around that dialog. Tags: Photos.appDeleteTrash

    If you migrated from Aperture to Photos, you may have noticed that your 100 GB Aperture library appears to have duplicated into another 100 GB Photos library. Turns out, that’s not really true. Tags: Photos.app

  • Mini Postcard from Road America

    Given the tight  schedule for this weekend's Continental Sports Car Showcase at Road America, I wasn't expecting much time to get out and explore. But on the way to the track this morning, I decide to see if I could come up with a good cup of coffee. I took the exit off State Highway 23 into downtown Plymouth (Wisconsin), knowing it's a quaint town and might have a nugget or two tucked away. Low and behold, I couldn't have been more right.As I drove down East Mill Street, there on my right the word 'espresso' caught my eye. I immediately parked the car and discovered a very cool building…
  • The Revs Institute

    Located in Naples, Florida, The Revs Institute is a mind boggling tribute to the automobile. It exists, in their words, for ‘Elevating the study of the auto.’ And elevate they do. The 80,000 square foot facility was purpose-built and, again in their words, ‘dedicated to achieving world-class excellence.' Mission accomplished.While visitors will certainly be blown away by The Collier Collection … over 100 influential cars… the facility also includes a private archive and research library comprised of over a million original documents and 20,000 book titles. All available to serious…

    Saturday night, April 26, Marlon and I were treated to a very unique and humbling experience. We were invited to the home of our friends, Kim and Chuck Anderson. The occasion was an evening of barbecued burgers, a movie and a trip to the Southwest Florida Regional Airport.The movie was a documentary called Honor Flight, an incredibly moving documentary that tells of a national movement of people who set about to honor our World War II veterans by organizing and mobilizing trips to Washington DC and making sure our veterans have the opportunity to visit the World War II Veteran’s Memorial.
  • Working Toward A Reasonable Level of Confidence

    I can recall the moment like it was yesterday. I wanted a rangefinder. I wanted a camera that was tidy, discreet and would shoot like a boss.My friend, Mike Levitt from LAT USA, let me try two of his… a Leica M8 and an Epson RS. Both very, very cool looking and equally as cool feeling. So off I went to roam the paddock.Upon my return to the photo room, you have no idea how disappointed I was. Sixty images… three in focus. I was stunned and totally disheartened. It wasn’t that I didn’t know how to focus, after all, I started shooting in the 70’s…. all you had was manual focus.

  • Day 94 - Eggs and the effects of Light

    Helen
    4 Apr 2015 | 3:55 am
    Easter is almost here, so appropriately I have chosen today to shoot eggs – well actually one egg as an experiment to see how aperture and shutter speeds effect light – a learning exercise, partly inspired by Emma’s Challenge for #Remarkable2015 – but partly so I could compare for myself the different settings of Aperture priority and Shutter priority on my canon camera. Today set up: Camera – 100 mm lens Tripod Off camera flash Aperture is my comfort zone – the default mode on my camera and the one I choose to go to – I know it effects the depth of…
  • *Freebie Photography 101, the Exposure Trifecta Part 3 : ISO

    3 Apr 2015 | 4:52 pm
    Rounding out our Exposure Trifecta is our ISO.  We discussed Aperture here, Shutter Speed here and with ISO we finalize this three pronged, exposure equation. Understanding when and how to manipulate your exposure might be a little tricky to fathom at first, but I’m hoping that after this series, you’ll have a very good grasp on how these three factors can be used to capture an image in any situation. We’ll look not only at ISO specifically, but we’ll tie in all three and explain how, why and when to adjust them in concert to achieve proper exposure.  C’mon…
