    What's your creative type? Adobe launches quiz to analyze you.

    The maker. Use to be more so than now. Now, more wishful thinker. (old age and laziness are my excuses, and my final answer)

    Well, I purpose to exert my right to silence and have an attorney present at all interrogations!

    Feedback Trophy?

    Wow! Life should be so complicated, to post and view a few pictures (or a lot). Sorry, I'm too old to deal with such drama. Have fun sorting that one out. :th_salute:

    Micro 4/3 Old and New

    This is mostly highlighting my other hobby, wood work. The boxes are for my wife and daughters. There are some not pictured here. This is my small basement workshop. there are some power tools, not focusing on them today. They are the primary tools used in making the boxes. I have the tools...

    Visited the eagles again . . . under leaden skies

    Want to get really close to eagles? Visit Homer, Alaska, and the Southern AK coasts. Especially during fish season. Somewhere in my files there are several. But don't be shocked at the bedraggled appearance of most of them. They are scavengers, and sometimes that is messy. When cleaned, up they...

    Cut the apron strings today. Quit Adobe

    Still using Adobe CS2. Does what I need it to, (not much). Too old and lazy to learn, and use any new software.

    Spring is Springing

    Don't know how I got a double copy of the pic, in the last post. This pic could also rest in the f8 and be there. Because we were there, - on our front porch. Lens is the Pentax SMC 35mm, f3.5. Now, I think we got it.

    Help me evaluate these photographs, please

    You might try a subject much closer, (10-20 ft) with lots of detail. I have used this method to help me choose a lens/camera combination. Seems to help me pick out the differences in resolution, color, etc. Flowers, people's faces and such, are usually close to what we typically shoot.

    Nearly all of the tree

    Nice picture as it is. Sometimes, what you can get has to do. I have many times in my younger days, missed the 'view/experience',trying to get the shot. I have begun 'looking', before the shot. Helps me remember and savor the experience. No picture can replace that.moment.

    What's your oldest "living" digital camera?

    EM-5, 1st edition, and don't want to go back. It took too long to get here!

    The rangefinder is not for everybody

    Speed and photography are not possible for me, with any camera, to get the shot cleanly. with my left eye having only peripheral vision, and my hands with old man tremors. I have found the solutions that allow me to continue with a life-long photography passion. (although it is waning with the...

    Zoom or two bodies with primes?

    Retirement and marginal fixed income settled the question for me. One body and couple good old school manual primes. 50mm and 35mm, both permanently mounted to adapters. The wife has the P 20mm, that I will sometimes "borrow".

    It's not darker stain. It's burn from worn belt sander belt, on the top box. On the bottom one, it's an old wood, of different species.

    I'm Back

    Back to the computer. A Brownie 620 like the one shone here, got me started around 1960. This one was a gift from a friend. The original was my mother's, and is long gone. Many cameras in between, led me to the E-M5, the nearest digital replacement for my old favorite film cameras, the Olympus...

    Can Nikon actually, really do this?

    Too late Nikon. I left you after the 8008. As Sue said, "mere mortals" just cannot always jump ship at the whim of a company's "new swing" at the market. E-m5 was my last big jump, and it rarely gets enough exercise, to earn it's place in the bag.

    Ban on cameras in cabin baggage - back to film?

    Or, I could just stay off airplanes. But, that's a strange thought from some one that holds an pilots license. Although the medical certificate hasn't been renewed for several years. The wife and I are traveling to the lower 48 from Alaska later this Summer. We decided to drive rather than the...

    My 'other' hobby

    Next tool box will have to wait for life to get back to normal living. Next few months involve hip replacement for the wife, Vacation back to KY, and major move to New Mexico. This one has to get me through that time and all the adventures. Thanks for all the comments and encouragement. Love...

    My 'other' hobby

    My other hobby is wood working, with mostly hand tools. OK, so I won't give up my cordless drills! Decided to do a quick and crude prototype tool box to store, carry my most used tools in. Used some construction grade knotty Pine. With counter-sunk screws. The next version will be all...

    Sony Deleting card images

    I don't know what the + or -, of it is. But, I simply 'move' my images via cable, to the computer. I select all and holding shift while clicking on the last image and dragging to my 'dump' folder, for sorting etc. Card is now empty and ready for shooting. So far, no issues.

    Now Karen, I suspect that what's coming out of your oven, will be better than you're let'in on. you just don't want us all drop'in in on you tonight for a food party! And Luke, that looks like supper time at our house, one bowl meal. But the age of the dinners, does not come close. (great grand...

    How's weather at your place?

    Upper 20s F and snowing again. 4-5" in last couple days. Pretty mild actually here and for time of year. Craving warm sun shine days. Cabin fever! Correction. I just came back in, and more like 8-9". Shoveled path to car and dipisty. Maybe the snow plow will come today, ...or not!

    Has it really been five years?

    Oct 2010. And, too many cameras to list. So far I'm hanging with the E-m5, and the $5.00 OM 50mm out of a flea market. Not much to dislike, other than the ridiculous on and off switch. Occasionally use the wife's P20mm. A great combo.

    Life's fleeting moments

    Those moments that are seen and gone quickly. Feel free to add your fleeting capture, any venue. Opened the curtain this morning at sun up, after 4-5" new snow, and this was there less than a couple minutes, and was gone. Clouds hid the light.

    Micro 4/3 OMD EM5 owner purchases OMD EM5 II – impressions so far

    I actually had that lens at one time. But on the (pen 3 I think), the out door focus was too iffy. I did my daughter's wedding with that combo, and the Fl36 flash, and the results were great. I think it might be a lot better on the E-m5, that I now use.

    Micro 4/3 OMD EM5 owner purchases OMD EM5 II – impressions so far

    The 60 macro is definitely a possibility. Or 'gasp', a quality zoom. No funds for either, at the moment. The 45 is not really soft, but not crisp, for landscape detail, that I crave and love.

    Micro 4/3 OMD EM5 owner purchases OMD EM5 II – impressions so far

    My daughter has the 45mm and I have used it. Fine for portrait use, but a bit soft for my taste in outdoor/landscape. You can check it out in Bysearching's postings here. The wife uses the 20mm and it's great, just too wide for my everyday user.
