When did this happen?

I understand I have been out of the tech field a while, but what happened to computer software?  I just read a thick book about a service that gave you access to their software by the month.  After reading the book and doing the review, I figured what the hell, I'll go see how much...

Back to the Books

I took the day to rest yesterday and saw four movies in the theater.  Over the last few days I have been trudging through a 700 page book I borrowed from the library.  Every once and a while I get an e-mail from Adobe, with a "special offer" for Adobe Creative Cloud.  I haven't opened...

The results from last night.

Soup of the Day

Matsumoto, Japan *I shot this image on 4-2-2018 while I was touring around Japan.  It was on the sidewalk outside a restaurant. After a day of hiking around castles, cherry blossoms and site seeing, we decided to head back to the hotel.  I was able to get lots of awesome photos, err with my cell... Continue Reading →

KetDirect Aluminium Tripod

I mentioned a while back that this was going to be my next upgrade.  Let me tell what a great decision this was.  If you are looking for a sturdy, lightweight professional tripod that won't break the bank then look no further. This 2-in-1 tripod could be converted into a full size monopod by screwing... Continue Reading →

Creative Composition by Harold Davis

I've had this book for almost a month now and am blow away with all of the tips that are included.  "Photographic technique can only get you so far.  Technique by itself-without passion or vision-is shallow and meaningless.  Cameras don't take pictures, people do."This is the first paragraph from the first chapter.
