Sony NEX-6 Review – my entry into mirrorless

I’ve been an active photographer for over 25 years both as a hobby and for hire.  During the past 9 years, I’ve had a very active aerial photography business, Tiger Aerial Photography.  I’ve always owned two types of cameras — SLRs (recently the Nikon D70, D200, and D300) and compacts (recently the Panasonic DMC-LX3 and […]

My photography appeared in a Discovery Channel documentary!

Back in 2008, I shot a picture of the London Parliament from the London Eye during the evening hours of a cloudy day.  As with most of my photography, both personal and professional (aerial photography mainly), I posted it to SmugMug.  A few months later, I received a call from a producer who was doing work […]

Gogo Inflight Internet now severely downgrading images automatically

I am a HUGE fan of Gogo Inflight Internet on Delta.   We all remember the first time we tweeted or IM’d from 30,000 feet.  It’s almost magical!  The past 13 flights on Delta have had Gogo service so I’m now super spoiled.  I’m even posting this article from my flight! BUT, now I have […]

My Panasonic DMC-LX3 – 2 months later

Two months ago, I blogged about my new Panasonic DMC-LX3 camera.  Since purchasing the camera, I’ve taken it on multiple trips and use it almost daily.  After two months, I’m happy to report that I’m still loving it. My favorite features are still the same: The 24mm f2.0 lens is fantastic The sturdy construction has […]

My new Panasonic DMC-LX3 digital camera – Pro-level features

As I’ve mentioned before, I do a LOT of photography (including aerial) and typically shoot a Nikon D300.  However, lugging around the D300 is sometimes not practical, so I like to have a nice compact camera to slip into my computer bag.  For the past few years, my favorite compact has been the Nikon P5000 […]

Nikon D70 – Rediscovering my first digital SLR

For the past few weeks, I’ve been uploading some of my older digital images to SmugMug, one of several great online destinations for digital images.  (To learn why I chose SmugMug, read my earlier article here).  Even though I have multiple backups of my image library, I don’t have any offsite backups, so if my […]

100,000 blog hits – what people are reading…

Today, my 10 month old blog received its 100,000th view.  I know that there are many bloggers that get this many views every week, but for me, this is a fun milestone considering I only received 10 hits per day during the first month (thanks mom!).  My blog now averages between 600 and 1200 hits […]

Nikon D700, D300, D3, D2Xs, D80, D60, D40 – confused?

I’ve been too busy in my “day job” during the past couple of months to keep up with the Nikon rumor mill so when Nikon announced the D700, I was surprised AND a bit confused as to where this new camera fit into the D-series lineup. I own a Nikon D70, D200 and D300. As […]

Wiggle 3D Stereoscopy with Flex

I have been fascinated with 3D stereoscopy since I was a kid. I remember my first 3D poster – it came in a box of cereal and included the goofy glasses with one red lens and one blue lens. I would spend hours staring at the poster amazed at how a flat piece of paper […]
