    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 this weekend. 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 of 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…

  • When Aperture Isn't Enough (aka, "Anatomy of an Interior Design Composite")

    ApertureExpert
    29 Aug 2014 | 12:00 pm
    There are of course times when we need to go outside of Aperture for our work. It might be to access a single plug-in, or to use a tool in Photoshop that Aperture lacks, but in some cases it’s bigger than that, such as creating a large composite file. In situations like that however, Aperture doesn’t cease to be part of the workflow. In fact, it can be a critical component, where each individual file is prepped and managed before being sent off to another land. Tags: Tethered shootingPhotoshop

    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.

    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.

  • Predator-Prey Relationships

    “Eat or be eaten” is perhaps the most fundamental law of nature. Predator-prey relationships can change suddenly: one minute a predator, such as a frog, is hunting for its next meal; next minute the frog becomes the prey and is a meal for another predator, such as a bird, higher on the food chain. The following time-series of photographs, shown in reverse chronological order, features a Green Heron (Butorides virescens) preying upon a frog in the central wetland area at Huntley Meadows Park on 04 August 2014. Photo 4. Down the hatch! Photo 3. Frogs are easier to swallow head…

  • Aperture In A Nutshell

    Hello Everyone! Today I am going to talk to you about Aperture. Now this subject can get really confusing. I’m going to clear this up for you all. Aperture is simply a hole inside of the lens. Light travels through this hole into the body of the camera. The bigger the opening the more light is let in, the smaller the opening the less light is let in. On a camera aperture is measured in f-stops. A larger f-stop means a smaller aperture. Aperture also controls your depth of field. A large f-stop (smaller aperture) will bring all your foreground and background objects into focus. A small…
