    Micro 4/3 My first ever JPEG only shoot, in the orchard

    As part of my cunning plan to stave off insanity during the covid situation I've spent some time trying to set up satisfactory jpeg outputs from some of my Panasonic cameras. This morning was my first attempt at anything other than a standard test subject, the view from my kitchen door. My...

    Micro 4/3 Foul weather camera -- first light

    Thanks to the kindness of one of the denizens here, I am now in possession of a camera that will be my go-to rig when the snow flies, the rain falls, the sleet drives, etc. It is an Olympus OMD E-M1 original edition, fitted with the Olympus 14-150 MkII. This gives me 28-300 e, extending to 600...

    Some thoughts for those "tele-working" for the first time

    For 17 years, I was a full-time freelance writer, working from a home office. Some observations: 1. Self-discipline can be the hardest thing to come by, but it is the most necessary thing for successful tele-working. Distractions are too easy to find. Determine that you will be...

    So I've had my A6400 for a couple of weeks now and this was the first time taking it out. With the 18-135mm.

    Film First Pack Through The SX-70 Sonar

    So the weather is still garbage and grey, but I went out anyway. Took the Polaroid SX-70 Sonar OneStep and the Fuji XPRO2. I figured if the Polaroid was a bust, I could take the time to test out my new Agfa APX 100 film simulation I’ve been working on. I still have one exposure yet to run...

    Fuji X-Pro3 first impressions

    So, I picked mine up today. The quality of construction has taken a step up. I remember that my original X-Pro felt a bit "hollow", particularly coming from a couple of decades of Leica M use. The 2 improved on that, but the 3 feels hewn from a solid block of dense black stuff. The built in...

    First run using the V Flat

    First round of shooting using the Monolith as it is now known. Thanks to my friend Andy for pointing out that similarity. I know there were some people on here who had no idea what this thing was, let alone how it would be used. I love that I can be set up and shooting with this thing in 5-10...

    Findings from my first big event with my current kit

    Every year I shoot a huge vacation bible school. Which is now by far the biggest event I shoot since retiring from cons and festivals. I've posted about all the changes I made to my kit. Gearing it towards portraits/candids, musicians performing, and events. After the second day I realized that...

    Fuji Meike MK-F-AF3 Auto Focus Extension Tube Set - First Images

    So, I saw these for $25 USD on Amazon and thought, why not. A 10mm and a 16mm tube and they are stack-able. AF works with both stacked and OIS still functions on lenses that have it. I'll be doing a full review later, but I'm thinking I will be getting my $25 worth out of these. Got these 3...

    First attempt at a realistic looking light saber

    I want to work with the local area cosplayers more this year. Which means I have to learn to do things in photoshop. Unfortunately. But good cosplay photos, at least some of them, require some post work to look their best. This is my first go at doing a light saber. I already had the photo from...

    Fuji First World Problem

    My wife surprised me with a trip to Cuba in June. Cuba has always been on my bucket list as a photo destination. I've picked out a backpack, but in trying to pack it lightly for the trip I'm conflicted. I have great gear and I want it ALL to go... stupid of me. So to start, do I go with...
