    Sean ... "is he dying for his art", it could be asked. Renaissance artists died half-crazed, poisoned by the toxic
    metals they used to put color in their oils. Even photography has its level of toxicity ... thankfully, "digital"
    has removed that aspect, for the most part. I'm cool with that!

    Computer machining, although initially expensive, can easily produce far more product than hand-built ... and
    probably far more safely. In the long term, which way do we go? You may lose some of the more "personal"
    aspects of the art ... but then, "longevity" may be the true benefit. If it kills ya ... is it worth it? I wonder ...
    what a mindset for a hobby. I'd hate to think that the last thing I do is produce a picture that killed me.

    Martyrdom is not all it is cracked up to be.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Who was the famous photographer who shot gritty industrial photos in black and white, maybe in Pittsburgh, noted for his use of chemicals in developing to really bring up the 'silver', can't think of his name. drank heavy, stayed up working on average 18-20 hrs a day. used to drink some of the chemicals in developing!! Now thats dying for your art, or your art killing you. Anyone know who I am talking about!?

    Show off! Me! Nooo.
    Hey, one advantage of UK living is the easy access to sites like this. There has to be some compensation for the weather; right!
    Maybe I'll post some more and feel gooood!

    Reached 80F today LOL, global warming for sure!


    Anyways, today I discovered that my kit lens that came with the camera actually does come with a lens hood! Incredible. lol .... none my friend's canon lenses have hoods and he was quite disappointed.

    I have some unfortunate news for you .. it'll be half of that, tomorrow, in Dallas! LOL Man, the winds! You don't get a temperature inversion like that without ... PAYBACK!

    BTW: Where have you been keeping the "kit lens" that you would not notice something like that?

    Stealing the light

    Not a great picture but intersting, I was shooting with the DCRP indoor bad light high ISO no flash setting. And seemed to sync up pretty well with the guy standing right beside me with the flash unit on his canon.
