Things come. Things go. Sometimes things seem like a good idea and turn out to be not such a good idea, but we learn. I bought the Leica M9, not quite a year ago. During that time, I’ve taken 4,567 photos with it. Most of those that Pedro’s wedding and in Australia. Other than that, I’ve not used it all that much. This year, I’ve taken 133 photos with it. Not many. So, why don’t I use it that much…

He’s a professional It’s an easy Saturday morning. I purchased Kirk Tuck’s Minimalist Lighting book and am practicing with Hobbs. In truth, most of the knowledge contained in the book, I knew. I’d studied some lighting by the late Dean Collins, who was a master of light and I’ve done lots of reading on Strobist, et al, so there is nothing much that is new. Overall, it’s a good read, especially for someone who might be a beginner. I’m surprised…

I got an e-mail from Tom Dills the other day letting me know that there was a one-day, local photography workshop that I might be interested in. As far as photography is concerned, I’m self-taught, and I’ve only been to 2 workshops, both with Craig Tanner, one in late 2006, the other, early 2007.

Click to view book I have received my first book, 2004 – Renaissance – Returning to what I love, my first of 7 themed photography books containing selected photos, by year, for the years 2004, 2006-2011. As I noted in a previous post, in 2005, I was missing in action. On the suggestion of Chuck, I ordered my book from MyPublisher. I downloaded their software, assembled the book, uploaded the book, paid for it, and about 10 days later, I…

Lately, I’ve been in a DIY, or Do it you self mood. last weekend, I built a background stand out of PVC pipe from a design that I found online. After building it, I found that it was a bit too heavy and had some design flaws. Oh well, it was fun, and in the end, cost about $50. No big loss. Later on in the week, I decided to buy some muslin and make my own backdrop and just…
