    LR 3.4.1 Export Settings issue/question.....

    About a week ago, on the advice of someone who thought the files I was exporting after post (as .jpegs) were too large, and thus took longer to upload and were not ideal in size to avoid possible online-theft, I changed the settings around in LR3 and have, ever since, got export results that...

    Opening Day, Tioga Pass & area.

    Sigh. I came home Sunday from a 3 day weekend up near Mammoth/Lee Vining, CA, for the opening of the Tioga Pass, and did something in LightRoom that not only killed all my folders, meaning all 4000 or so of my pics are now in one folder, taking a bit to open, but converted EVERY PIC I TOOK over...

    Lower Antelope Canyon & House on Fire (big pics)

    Just spent 4 days (and over 1600 miles of driving) going all over northern Arizona and southeastern Utah for shots of slot canyons, Native American Ruins, etc.... The weather was distinctly less than cooperative, with high, gray haze all days except the morning we left. That didn't make a...

    Anyone been to Lower Antelope Canyon?

    Going for the next 5 days on a punishing SW loop of The Wave/Coyote Buttes (for the second time, after swearing I'd never go back), Lower Antelope Canyon (been to Upper), Monument Valley, House on Fire and possibly some other choice places. In any case, Upper Antelope is universally PACKED...

    Weekend snow and storm in Yosemite (big pics)

    Went to Yosemite this weekend because my g/f was a finalist at an annual photographic contest they have there, and was pretty excited about the potential massive snow dump that was supposed to start the day before we left and continued on until Sunday, when we'd depart. It snowed before we...

    Death Valley in B&W

    Just went to Death Valley this weekend, for a 48 hour, whirlwind trip. Also just got my first, ever, red filter for B&W shots, a Tiffen #29 red, to go over a very dirty (and soon to be replaced) circular polarizer. So, then: Very possibly the most astoundingly lucky thing I've ever shot...

    LX5 WA challenge at Owens Lake, Mono Lake and the Alabama Hills.

    So I got another WA adapter for the LX5, the LWA52, as the first one had some sort of defect on the outer coating, and have the following observations. A. It's a high quality build, but it's a nuclear dust magnet. B. There is distinct fisheyeing, so to speak, if one shoots at odd angles...

    The difficulty in shooting popular Southern California beaches

    So we decided to go to Matador State Beach for sunset yesterday evening, and things started to go off from the minute we hit the sand down the roughly 1/4 mile walk w/stairs. A. LOTS of people all about. No biggie, we've all got a right to be there. B. Group of about 10 people all...

    Micro 4/3 NYE w/the Panasonic LWA-52 wide angle attachment. &#%$&@#!#@@&(!!!!

    Just picked up the LWA-52 attachment at Samy's Camera on Fairfax in LA on Thursday, for my trip today the Owens Valley, and I thought I'd try it out last night before we left this morning. I should have opened the box at the store. The coating on the outer lens has a tear/scar in it, and, as...

    Micro 4/3 The Salton Sea and why it's so &#$(&*@##! hard to photograph it.

    Lesson 1: with a premium level P&S w/like the LX5, w/it's great glass and wide angle capability, shooting monumentally things from up close, like in Yosemite Vally, is really easy. Esp. when covered in snow, ala a photo set I posted here about two weeks ago, because the contrast is high...

    Micro 4/3 Advice needed (quickly) for the Salton Sea

    I'll be there for most of the day tomorrow, likely until past sunset, and it will be my first visit. Can anyone recommend any particularly good spots? I'll also be at/near the Algodones Sand Dunes, if anyone has been there. Thanks in advance, T3

    First foray into RAW processing. The good & the odd.

    So we're on our way back from Thanksgiving from the family ranch, and at the foot of the Grapevine in extreme northern L.A. County, where I've always wanted to shoot, the weather gods looked kindly upon us. However, and I don't know how this happened, the Silkypix gods seemed to look...

    First snow in Yosemite, first trip w/LX5, lessons learned (big pics)

    Just got back yesterday evening after a weekend for at Yosemite w/the g/f for the first snowfall of the year, and the weather did not disappoint. This was the first time ever for using my LX5, and everything was shot manual. I shot RAW and 'fine' .jpg, and everything here is .jpg, since I only...

    Micro 4/3 Is it worth it to fix a sentimental favorite? If so how much?

    I finally ordered an LX5, after having lived and learned with a now beloved (albeit stupid) FS7. Part of the reason that I've done so is that I've grown as a photographer, and really like it, and I love my little powerhouse, but there specs on either the inside of the glass/lens, or on the...
