A few months ago I tried my hand at processing files with the iPad. In a nutshell, I found that it was very limited in the file sizes that it could accommodate. However, I did discover that it could accommodate, quite comfortably, those files from my Canon S90, either raw or JPEG. If you read the previous post, I mentioned that I could not process M9 files on the iPad because they were too big, no matter which mode I…

Lake Wylie This morning it was foggy, or so I thought. It turned out to be very localized, or patchy, as they say. It looked much foggier towards the south, in the direction of my favorite local park, McDowell Nature Preserve. I figured that there would be lots of fog down there and that I could just have a good time walking through the woods, seeing foggy patches of moss, listening to mysterious, unseen birds in the distance. On the…

The other day I was walking through the lobby at work and I saw a fellow coworker. We usually chat for a short bit about photography, though his interests are turning more towards videography. He said: I visited your blog today and it seems you are taking more photos of people, now. What kind of photography are you interested. My reply: Anything. Anything at all. This morning, while I was walking with Hobbs, a distant memory popped up having to…

The brain I’m sure that I’m not alone in this. You’re driving along, you see a shot that you want to take but you’re on the highway, in traffic, or somewhere without your camera?

I noticed this cloud formation, knew pretty close to where…

4/3 or Micro 4/3 Like most in most any other category, technology moves fast within the camera world. I have completely missed the 4/3 cameras, and now they are on to the micro 4/3. Sure it’s a camera, but I think that I’d like to perhaps rent one and give it a try while on vacation and write my thoughts about it, perhaps. I plan to rent one from LensRentals.com and give it a spin. I have no intention of…

I’m not the only one This is the last day of Daylight Savings Time. Tomorrow morning, sunrise will be at about 6:40 AM instead of 7:40 AM, sunset 5:25 PM instead of 6:25 PM. I really like this time of year, at least in the mornings, because now I don’t have to wait so late for the sun to come up. I can start my walks a bit earlier. But, what’s even better is that the light is interesting most…
