Some assembly required

Not every photo will be good. Sometimes they may need a little fixing. Consider this photo of my grandson and his great grandmas. The tough part of getting photos of either of his great grandmas with natural smiles is a tough one. In this photo, she was not expecting to have her picture taken right...

As a matter of record

What was the latest you have seen snowfall in your area? For us, it was the last two mornings. This mountain north of us usually is a good indicator of what happened overnight. Sign in to see full entry.

A stitch in time...

Panoramic photos are a challenge. Even with a wide angle lens, it may not be possible to get all of the scene you really want into just one frame. Now, thanks to the marvel of electronics, getting that panoramic shot just got easier. In 2008, we went on a photo expedition to catch the fall colors in... Sign in to see full entry.

Two views, same scene.

The wide angle view gives a nice post card scene. But a zoom lens gives a brand new look. Sign in to see full entry.

Contrast is not always a matter of the balance of light and dark, it can also be a contrast of seasons. This dock has been the scene of many a laughter filled summer day, but today it is eerily quiet for obvious reasons. The boat is ready, but the oars won't dip much water, not today anyway.

Just keep that camera handy

We went up to our lake cabin in NE Washington State to do some spring chores. I almost left the camera home, but in case we found something we needed a picture of, repair wise I took it. Good thing too, the cabin was all good but this scene wasn't going to wait around for long. Sign in to see full entry.

Go into the archives

All those old pictures you have in albums, boxes, trunks and envelopes are fair game in the age of scanner technology.

Burst mode is for babies

Babies are notoriously difficult subjects, they move around a lot and don't really like to pose. So when you are shooting those kid or grandkids, utilize the burst mode to click away and you should be able to avoid this. And capture this. By the way, isn't my grand child, well, grand!?

The most important pictures of all

A new baby in the family, my 1 st grandson. This is where digital cameras come into their own. In the old days I would shoot a whole roll of film on that first day, but today I went way beyond that. The great thing is you can take enough photos so you are bound to get one that is good since those... Sign in to see full entry.

Here comes the sun

The sun directly into your lens is usually not recommended, it can raise heck with the exposure for one and potentially damage your sensor in a digital camera. The other morning I was looking into a blinding sun but it was doing wonderful things to the clouds. I tried shading the lens with my hand,... Sign in to see full entry.
