Tag: Techy Stuff

If I’m being honest, I have to admit that I’m a middle of the book kind of guy as far as technical books go. I like to dive right in, figure the good stuff out, and then work my way through the book, using the index, to cover the bits that I need to know right now. I think that they might call that impatient, but I’m not sure. 😉 Rarely do I read a technical book, especially about cameras…

Nope. This picture wasn’t taken by a Nikon D850 because I don’t own one. In fact, it was taken with an iPhone! 🙂 Sometimes, I love to listen to mind chatter during my various walks. The topics are all over the place, jumping here and there, randomly – sometimes sticking for a moment, then like a butterfly, flitting off into some new territory. Recently, after seeing and reading about the new Nikon D850, it’s decided to visit that particular flower…

I remember when I first picked up a wide angle lens to use. I hated it, absolutely hated it. It made everything look so small. I had visions of seeing these wide-open spaces portrayed elegantly with my new fangled lens. I got rid of that lens. The problem, of course, was the photographer, not the lens. After I learned how to use one, many years later, I always made sure to have one in my kit. For the last few…

As Google is prone to do, it’s discontinuing a well-used piece of software, Google Reader. I need to find a new ‘home’ to host my RSS feeds.

I’m not exactly so confident that it will still work on July 1st, after Google Reader bites the dust. For those of you who are using…

Addendum 2012-12-23 Generally, the smaller sensors found in compact cameras will produce images that are more than acceptable for casual photographers. However, the more serious photographers who pay more attention to details and want even higher quality in a picture will be better off with a camera with a larger sensor. ~Easy Basic Photography I’m still going through my Grand Canyon photos. This one, I really like. On the screen, it looks magnificent. However, it is teaching me a few…

Just when I think that I know what’s going on with the printer, it jumps up to bite me and make me “waste” paper and ink on learning … the hard way. Honestly, I’m not like my son, Tony, I’ll listen to suggestions. I don’t need to learn everything the hard way. I don’t. 😀 So, in preparation for some more frames, I printed out a number of prints that I intended to hang. Printed them on 13 x 19″…
