Photography workflow

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Four years ago, I made the switch to digital SLR photography.  The primary reason was the workflow.  When I shot slide film, I would have to get the film developed, look at each image, scan the ones I liked, correct the color balance and then manually remove the dust spots from the scanned images. When […]

Calendar update

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

K and I received our copies of the Yellowstone calendar and they look great.  I’m happy with both the images we selected and also the printing – which was great.  As I mentioned earlier, we went with Zazzle for doing the printing and couldn’t be happier.  My mom got the ones for the folks in […]

Yellowstone calendar pictures

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Time to assemble the annual Yellowstone calendar.   This year I had a bit of a deadline (and not the shipping deadline this year!).  The company I ordered from (Zazzle) was having a 44% off deal, which expires around 3am.  Unfortunately, because of my grandfather’s death, I never did get around to processing the pictures from […]

William Wallace on wildlife releases

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

They may take our rehabilitation bins, but they’ll never take… our FREEDOM! On Sunday, K release some baby water turtles that she had been over-wintering.  Fortunately, we’re all of a mile from a good place at which to release turtles, Jordan Lake, so we didn’t have to drive too far. The big one in the […]

Snow pictures

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Last week (on Inauguration Day no less), we got about 7″ of snow out at the house.  I just uploaded the pictures this morning.  Some of my favorites are below, the rest are in the gallery. If nothing else, the dogs sure did seem to enjoy the snow.  🙂 Sale thin frame and unusual delivery […]

front yard birding

Monday, January 12th, 2009

Using a bit of leftover birthday money, I bought some new camera equipment.  Nothing particularly sexy like a big long lens (what do you mean by homoerotic?).  I bought a set of carbon fiber tripod legs that weigh about 3 pounds instead of the 6 pounds of my old tripod legs – that should make […]

Thinking about camera equipment

Friday, November 14th, 2008

I started taking photography more seriously about ten years ago.  I put down my cheap point and shoot film camera and bought an SLR body, a few lenses and some slide film.  The great thing about shooting film (slide or print) is that you aren’t constrained by the quality of your camera.  My first SLR […]

Wildlife rehab porn

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

It’s okay to look, I promise that there are no shots of me doing naked cage construction. *shudder* A couple of months ago, K got a call about a squirrel.  When the folks brought it over, it turned out to be rather small, but pretty far along in its development.  Well, that’s because it was […]
