Labor Day Sale

Posted on Sep 3, 2010 in The Photography

I don’t know why everyone has a sale on Labor Day, other than that it’s a holiday, so more people are off – and in the old days would go shopping in physical stores?  But now that you can get most of what you need on the web… why can’t you just sit at your […]

You’ve followed me long enough to know that I will sometimes get fixated on some new technology and as my friend Matt would say, get stuck in the secret lab.  I happened when I first got into digital cameras, and then infrared, and well, it’s a long list.  But what seems to keep me going […]

the professional

Posted on Sep 3, 2010 in The Photography

I mentioned that I’m planning to go to the John Prine concert on Governor’s Island, and that it is stated in the rules that no professional equipment will be allowed. What are considered professional cameras and professional digital cameras? Any camera with a removable lens will be considered a professional camera and will not be […]

Watching Epson 4800 Print

Posted on Sep 2, 2010 in Using Your Camera

I was talking to Lester about what I’m doing with the video stuff, and he told me that this video had gotten something like 14,000 views. Did I know that? Nope. I had no idea. I had tossed these videos up just quickly and without going back to see if anyone was watching them; and […]

Walking Around Movie (1st Test)

Posted on Sep 1, 2010 in Using Your Camera

I wanted to go through the whole process with the Canon 500D and Adobe Premiere 4, and see what would come of it. The idea of this first experiment was just to learn the technical ropes. It was shot with the 30mm Sigma, and the camera was, as far as I could tell, setting the […]

todo list

Posted on Aug 26, 2010 in The Photography

I woke up this morning all set to really blast into the day and get the last three orders matted and packaged today.  Then I could have the next few days to work on a few other projects that are floating around.  One I’ll just call project x for now; another one is a small […]

The Altered Photograph

Posted on Aug 24, 2010 in The Photography

The ethics of photography place us in odd positions that we just didn’t find ourselves in ten years ago.  As photographers, we have the ability to easily cross the line between documenting what we saw at the time, and strengthening the theme of what we saw. I’m not even talking about the most obvious uses […]

Out of It

Posted on Aug 24, 2010 in The Photography

The UPS guy showed up this morning with a flat envelope.  I couldn’t figure out what it was, I have so many things going back and forth with UPS and Fedex and so I just opened it up and there was a coupon for a woman’s hair product.  Now why would someone spend the money […]

John Prine

Posted on Aug 21, 2010 in The Photography

Yes.  A whole post for John Prine.  I have followed him since his first album which came out while I was a student at SUNY Buffalo.  Singer / songwriter.  Country-ish story teller.  One of the greatest songwriters of my lifetime.  Songs often written in the “voice” of someone else, i.e. “I am an old woman, […]
