Rescued Film

A Great Concept!

Shutterbug released an article last night on The Rescued Film Project and I had to share it. As a photographer constantly looking at every photograph as a piece of history this made a lot of sense to me and what this man is doing is a pretty awesome service. Give it a read and check […]

Nikon D4 For Sale

Life is certainly interesting as it keeps changing. I remember a couple of years ago when I first got my D4 and what a big deal it was. Of course at the time I was still very much in love with my D3, until I saw the difference in quality. Now the time has come […]

Do You Need to Upgrade?

This question has been rattling around every since the announcement of the Nikon’s new flagship DSLR. Whenever you start thinking about upgrading gear there’s a lot more to consider then just the price tag. The biggest question you have to ask yourself is will that piece of gear fill a need you have or is […]

What do you do when you have grey skies?

Why the best thing to do with grey skies is too look at photos of better skies! No not really. That was just good timing. But in all honesty when it comes to days that have nothing to offer but grey skies and boring flat clouds, then either you become really creative with a subject […]

Back From the Cleaners

Yep it’s that time of the year when the annual cleaning and repair happens. You know I never understood why people are afraid of doing this but like any other tool you have to take of your camera gear. It’s too important not to take proper care of and if you are a more clumsy […]

It’s Like Being a Kid Again!

These things are just addictive! One of my Christmas presents that my Dad and my Brother found were the Metal Earth Models made by Fascinations Toys. They are just the coolest things ever! They aren’t really that big, the smallest I have is about 2″x 2″ and the largest is 5″ by 4″ so they […]

Upgrading the System

With the release of the D5 and D500 comes the inevitable file size increase. As technology grows so does the need to store those files. For years I’ve used Buffalo Ministation hardrives and I just got a new one to upgrade one of my travel drives. These little guys are great. 2TB, Thunderbolt, USB 3.0 […]
