I always shoot RAW, and I always save all of my RAW files, because prodigious storage is cheap these days. From time-to-time, I go back to old stuff and…

The “Diffraction Limited Aperture” can be thought of as the sweet-spot of your Av settings. We all know that the larger the lens aperture, the shallower your…

IMO; I sometimes feel frustrated by the traditionalist and derivative nature of so much of photography. In The-Old-Days, what a camera could produce was…

Here is another example of that technique that I have been experimenting with. I took a single image and developed it two different ways, one in color, and…

Here are a couple more quickies. People often do partial-colorization by having a basically B&W image filled in with a touch of color. Personally, I find…

This is an exposure-bracketed composite. I set up the camera on a tripod and did one exposure for the sky (ISO-200; f8; 1/3200), and another for the…

The following are a few shots that I took last weekend. We have a “Friends Pod” of about a half-dozen people that we do (unmasked) things with. One of the…

A while ago, HDR, or High Dynamic Range, was a big photographic fad. It seems to have fallen out of favor recently, however. I think that between people using…

I have been working for years to try to discover the trick of super-sharp, noise-free images. Camera gear has an impact, but probably 2/3 of it is…

This is what I saw when I took the trash out this morning. I could almost, but not quite, get tired of this. In case anyone is interested, I darkened the sky…

Once again, I can't get the full-res version out here, but whatever. I have been experimenting with colorizing B&W prints. Obviously, I'm not concerned with…

Unfortunately, this is not uploading to PhotoBlog at full-res for some reason, so you’ll have to live with a smaller size. I was 18-years-old when I took…

This is partially colorized through DxO/NIK Silver Efex. Last weekend I was cleaning the garage, when the stain on the floor caught my eye. My wife thought…

When I was a kid, color-TV was a novelty, and I still remember the first time that I saw one at a friend’s house. The “snow” was beautiful. After describing it…
