An Interesting Copyright Question

I found these shots from someone who buys unexposed rolls and plates and then attempts to process them. I found those after following up on another awesome find. An interesting question entered my mind while I was viewing the photos: Some of the best stuff (I think) I have ever done lives on unprocessed rolls […]

Raw Therapee Becomes Free Software

Bracketing Does NOT Mean HDR!

You can wrap them around tree branches, fences, sign posts, body parts or […]

Until I can afford a D-300S or Nikon makes something that I actually want in a mid range price, I’m sticking with the D-40. […]

My Flickr Stream

For other shutter bugs, I’ve created a flickr stream and have been slowly uploading stuff that I find interesting that I’ve shot over the past few months. Most of the images were taken with a Nikon D-40, using the standard / stock 18-55 MM lens. When time permits, I’ll set up a flickr gallery on […]
