For the past few years I’ve been making holiday cards with my photos for friends and family. This year I’m thinking about testing the water with two limited run products for the holidays: ———————————————————————————————
I dread falling into a techhead mode, but this Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III Hands-On Review video was too funny not to post. One thing that instantly made me chuckle is the porno music and the visual inspection of the sensor which by appearance clearly demonstrates how great it is. All teasing aside if you’ve never unwrapped a Canon 1 body this is a must see. I have to admit I found the comparison of the 1Ds Mark III

I recently came across an article on visual plagiarism and thought it was an excellent read. I’ve not run into this problem personally, but I’ve read about individual examples here and there.

Few photos have eluded me like this one. After nearly 10 years the stars aligned and I was finally free to photograph the fog blanketing the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco at sunset this past week. What makes this photo so difficult to capture? To name a few things; the weather conditions have to be just right, you have to recognize the conditions as being just right, you have to be in a close proximity to the
