Yup, my camera now has a ‘spot’ that shows up on every photo… dang it…

And, of course, it first showed up in all those photos I took on that two-day trip I went on with my younger daughter, Mollie, to see snow and mega-blooms of flowers. It isn’t on the lenses… it appears when … Continue reading

See if you can spot the ‘annoying technical glitch’ issue with my camera in all these beautiful shots of Southern California… a game… sort of… (answer tomorrow)…

It is in each and every one of these photos. It is easier to spot in some of them… (that was an extra hint, by the way). I noticed it when I first started to post the pictures I took … Continue reading

Lights, camera, action; fun with ‘wiggly photography’… part 3… the final chapter?

No, this won’t be the final chapter. These are just the last of the photos I have already taken, using my new low-light-long-shutter-opening-wiggling-the-camera-around-like-a-maniac-and-trying-to-make-art-technique.

I give you: the finger… wait… that sounds wrong…

The thing is… Hey, thing, it is good to have you back… I am still playing around with macro super-close-up photography. As per the suggestion of my son-in-law, who loaned me the three macro lens spacer thingies that I have … Continue reading

A closer look… part 6…

More macro photography, but this time, I am not telling you what they are. Most of them will be fairly obvious, I suppose. But we can still make a game of this. Or not. Whatever makes you happy. But I … Continue reading

The ZOOm chronicles… part 7…

The maned wolf… and not a bad picture, considering it was taken through a chain link fence. Chain link fences seem to confuse my camera now and then, especially with the zoom lens on. Sometimes it wants to focus only … Continue reading

Things that can go horribly wrong when you take photos… part 11…

We have talked about focus, and about what happens when your camera is moving too fast to take a good picture… like when you are in a car… but now, let’s talk about motion blur. That is when you are … Continue reading

Oh yeah… Christmas pictures from the new Christmas camera…

All my life I have thought I was pretty good at taking pictures… I am an artist after all… but I never had a good camera… until now… Turns out there is something of a learning curve, but Mollie and I … Continue reading

This post isn’t really about the birds… it’s about the camera that took the picture of the birds… sort of…

We went to visit my wife’s aunt and uncle this weekend… you know, they are the ones who own the dog that is best friends with our dog… and I took some pictures of some woodpeckers. I like woodpeckers as … Continue reading
