I never understood the hype around the “Nifty Fifty.” On a full frame (35mm) camera it used to be one of the ‘must have’ prime lenses in your kit. This was back in the day when Zoom Lenses just could not match the image quality of a Prime. Other ‘must have,’ Prime lenses were 28mm […]
Its taken me a few lean years but finally I’ve just upgraded from LR3 to LR6. In the process I’ve learned that I could have been doing somethings better, and one large catalog is not so good. So I’m starting from scratch all over again. Now, I’m scrutinizing Kevin Kubota’s Lightspeed Workflow (from a CreativeLive […]
Last Sunday was Worldwide Pinhole photography Day, so I decided to make a pinhole camera and play around with some exhausted Ilford Ilfospeed x.44M B&W Photographic paper as source material for some paper negatives. The camera I build out of a Chinese Tea Tin lined with black gaffer tape and trilled a hole in it […]
Nice piece of kit. Might have to use the Chinese connections to get one of these….

So, I was looking at this: and got to thinking: a) this is really cool b) the result is better than what I’ve seen for other videos, like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv8wr-zKIRI c) nice segue into online editing, and d) what if the edges were routered after making the picture, and ferous acetate used to selectively […]
An alternative to the GoPro Hero, If you’re traveling in China, this might actually be worth the effort of picking up. Update: (15 Apr.) I’ve now ordered one of these complete with waterproof housing. Just waiting on the wife’s next visit to Chine to pick it up. Can hardly wait. For today, that’s what’s in […]
So, I’m watching DC@Brooks – again; and I pick up just a little bit more. Blowthrough on the background. i.e. in essence you don’t want your background to be brighter than 2 stops above 18% Grey, reflective… or in other words, no brighter tan 2 stops above the diffused value of your subject… I think […]
