    Coronavirus 2020 🤧 (... and 2021, 2022)

    The virus has been so controversial because there's no one which the experience has left untouched: even those lucky enough to have had no one in their sphere sick with more than mild symptoms have endured life-altering confinement around what they felt was good and normal life. There are plenty...

    Coronavirus 2020 🤧 (... and 2021, 2022)

    I was not suggesting that COVID was political, simply that politics get involved, like they do with any major social disruptor, and when they do, they destroy the nuances of ant particular issue and create polarization. If that was somehow a controversial statement, then maybe we are all going a...

    GAS A new PC

    I've been sticking with mostly Corsair parts, and now an MSI motherboard, I like what these two companies offer. My PC is the Corsair Bulldog barebones kit, with many of the parts swapped out or upgraded over the years.

    Micro 4/3 Your Treasured M43 'Sleeper Lens"?

    I will always speak up for the Panasonic 20mm f1.7, but it's not a sleeper - it gets evangelized often enough for folks to know how good it is. My pick is the newer TTartisans 23mm f1.4, which is a well-built manual lens with a supremely useful 46mm equivalent field of view, and shoots extremely...

    Coronavirus 2020 🤧 (... and 2021, 2022)

    I was speaking with a very knowledgeable healthcare professional a little while back and he mentioned long COVID seems to be primarily a function of the immune system. The spike protein really works haywire with immune cells along with many other cells in the body. The problem is, this is not...

    Ricoh Surprise! Ricoh GRIIIx

    Lightroom does not preserve the GR's JPEG profiles with DNG files. While it does support that behavior with a few manufacturers, I think it's a combination of enhanced functionality of that manufacturer's proprietary RAW format and/or Adobde considering them more high-volume manufacturers (think...

    "DSLRs Are the New Leica"

    There's something cool about 50mm lenses on a full frame digital sensor. I've been considering the FA 50mm f1.4 a little bit lately.

    Stroll Seen while strolling...walking and wandering outside

    As a farm kid I always find it strange when farms are fenced in by chain link - in my day that would have been far too fancy and expensive for us. Three strands of barbed wire was about all we could do to keep up and maintained. Chicken wire at the bottom when keeping pests out was especially...

    Pentax K-1 and K-1 Mark II Images

    I enjoy finding strong pops of color on a cloudy day - here is where a highly saturated profile/film/post processing style really suits the results. I find looking for colors more satisfying with the K1 than some previous cameras. I know they are all capable of taking vividly colored...

    Micro 4/3 Camera / Lens Recommendation for a Young Newbie

    Even non-photographers these days are usually somewhat used to the concept of a prime lens, if they have photographed with cellphones over the past decade. Less so now, with multi-lens cameras, but there was a time period where single focal lengths (and diminishing returns if you tried to zoom...

    Film Showcase Kodak Pro Image 100

    There wasn't a thread for this film stock yet. I just developed a roll yesterday using the Cinestill C41 2-bath kit, here are the selects, scanned using the Pro Image 100 profile in Silverfast on the Pacific Image XAs. I like these results, it is not the most color neutral/realistic, at least...
