    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.

    Question Winter Wonderland? The cold can go!

    I have to say ... the weather has really diminished my desire to do ANY outdoor shooting. With temperatures around the teens (F) or less ... and nothing but snow (aka "SNIRT" {SNOW + DIRT}), that will not (cannot) melt ... there is not a heck of a lot to show for it. Just exposures that are rather flat, lifeless ... and ill-defined. The 'Christmas-lighting' comes down this week (or very soon) and that makes it even worse.

    Admittedly, it is tough to get motivated when your fingers are freezing, other than to hurry the heck up and get out of the cold! I can easily see why the Alaska-bunch is a little slow to provide their own shots.

    You "SONY Southerners" ... keep it coming, eh?

    Here's one Don. I'm not crazy about it because it has a distracting light in the back I couldn't get rid of (I'm not crazy about PP).

    You really don't need PP for this type of light. All you really need is $5, a teenage boy, and a good BB gun
    Light problem solved.... At least long enough to take your desired Photograph.
