Canon S90 – Perfectly capable! Thanks to Monte for tweeting a link to this article, Unplug Your Life, written by Richard Wong. It’s a short, but good read. I enjoyed it. Richard talks about ‘unplugging’ while on vacation. The article, for me makes sense; Richard says that he doesn’t own a smartphone and talks about it being a waste of time to spend time on the Internet while on vacation. I would agree with that, in part, but I think…

Nikon D300 – Nikkor 100 mm @ f/8 1/125 Another fun little experiment that I’ve wanted to do, take the same photo with both cameras. Here’s a shot of the moon from last night taken from my porch. Both shots were taken with the same lens, but using different camera bodies. As you can see, the D300 appears much larger given the crop factor of 1.5. I took both of these images with the same lens, around 2 or 3…

Every once in a while, on a slow day, I’ll do what I call link hopping. That is, for those of you bloggers who visit my site, I’ll visit yours and see who you have on your blogroll (that reminds me, I need to do a better job of keeping my up-to-date). If you don’t have a blogroll, then I’ll read comments and click though to some of the commentators’ sites. Then, I’ll visit a site or two, see if…

I am following, with great interest and admiration, Ove’s 365 project. That is, one photo a day for the entire year. No small undertaking, from my point of view, yet, there are a few who do that and more, like Andreas and Juha. I have great admiration for their stamina and dedication. I imagine that I might be able to do it, physically, go out or stay in and take a photo a day, but mentally, I don’t know. I’ve…

A centipede was happy – quite! Until a toad in fun Said, “Pray, which leg moves after which?” This raised her doubts to such a pitch, She fell exhausted in the ditch Not knowing how to run. “The Centipede’s Dilemma” is a short poem which has given its name to an effect in psychology: the centipede effect (or centipede syndrome). This is when a normally automatic or unconscious activity is disrupted by consciousness of it or reflection on it. For…

I was going to make this post into two posts, but I think that I can blend them into a cohesive unit. I think. The first part: The other day, Tom Dills and I were talking about photography while on vacation and how we handle it. Even though we have different approaches, we pretty much handle it the same. We take our time to do the personal work, say in the morning while everyone else is sleeping. He doesn’t like…
