I had a little internal debate with myself before going to Pittsburgh. The plus side to digital is that you get the instant gratification. The downside is that you need a supporting cast for it to be fully useful: chargers, laptop, USB reader or cords. If you have only one lens, you always have the correct one on. If you have more than one, you usually have the wrong one on. ~Paul Butzi Carry-ons and Consolidation As the airlines changed…

As I mentioned earlier, the auto white balance on the M9 is pretty poor and on this trip, it certainly did not redeem itself. While shooting in the cathedral of learning, the lighting kept switching between tungsten, daylight, florescent, and mixed. Quite frankly, the AWB of the M9 was all offer the place as well. Schizophrenic! I had placed my very little used expo disc in the bag. I pulled it out, set the camera for manual white balance, placed…

On saturday, Chris wanted to take me to The Strip. A place where locals frequent on the weekend and do shopping and get a bite to eat. We gave it a go, but faced nearly constant rain. We abandoned that idea after a short while. On the way from the airport, Chris took me on a tour through the campuses of Carnegie Mellon and The University of Pittsburgh.

I had passed through this small town, Fort Mill, SC and wanted to go back and shoot a bit. He said that he’d like to go. We arrived around 6:00 PM, just about the time that the light was getting nice. We walked around, took some pictures of the old storefronts, most of which were closed permanently…

Kids! I just love them. They are the worlds best photographic subjects. Their faces so expressive. Their sense of awe at most things. However, in the current state of fear, especially, for some reason, against photographers, I tend to shy away from taking photos of kids unless given permission by parents. However, in a large event that will draw people, the photographer generally goes unnoticed. It is at this point when I can indulge myself and try to captured some…
