PWT, do plan to visit the mill at Babcock when you get a chance. It is an easy shoot. The parking lot is right there and it is an easy walk down to the stream's edge. Depending on the water flow you may be able to do some rock hopping like I did to capture the photo you commented on. When I visited ...

I'm back from Las Vegas and I didn't lose a dime. I don't gamble so no surprise there. I took in a few of the sights like the Belagio water show but I really wasn't there long and didn't have much time for anything but work. I left 70+ degrees in Las Vegas and returned home to high temperatures in t...

Boy, you sure do get around Al! :D That is a beautiful picture. I love the composition. Thanks so much for sharing it. I don't know how the weather is in your neck of the woods, but it's really cold here with a chance of ocean effect snow showers tonight. I hope we get em. I'd love to see a little ...

I was in West Virginia last week. The leaves were all gone so I was forced to make the best of it. Here's what I shot:

Another problem with the self-timer is that you are beholden to the timer on the camera. Sometimes you want to trip the shutter at a particular moment (e.g., when the wind dies down) and having to deal with the self timer doesn't always fit that. Andy, between the two of us, I think our arguments f...

Carol, you may be surprised at how little change you will find. The photography is the same, only the equipment is different. You may have to adjust to a tripod if you aren't accustomed to using one. I find that using a tripod is one of the best parts of photography. I set my camera on a tripod and ...

Al, Thank you so very much for your response. You made some wonderful points and I really appreciate all of your thoughts and advice. I have to research cable release and L bracket. I use the self timer on my current camera and my current tripod. Looks like things will be changing a lot for me! Car...

Carol, before you decide which camera to put on your Christmas list, make sure it has everything you need and want. I don't really keep up on the differences in features from camera to camera but here are some things to keep in mind. Your new camera absolutely must be able to display a histogram for...

This is painful to read. I can't imagine how frustrated I would be if I missed a shot because I had to wait for the camera to writer to a card. The photographer should be controlling the camera not the other way around. I'd encourage everyone to get an SLR. You can find good used ones fairly inexpen...

What were you thinking?

So let's start a new topic. My neighbor is taking a photography mentorship. Along they way, she was asked to submit a group of photos with a description of what she was thinking when she exposed the shot. He thinks that if there is an emotional attachment to the photo, that emotion will be conveyed ...

Al, Does your daughter also enjoy photography? I might be the youngest of us three musketeers, but trust me, some days I sure don't feel it!!! I mentioned I am in my mid 40's and holding. My upcoming birthday puts me definately in the late 40's category.....that's why I am still holding. :) Carol M...

I suspect that the reason this is a three person discussion is that now that the foliage season is over, everyone is gone until next year. I have Scott Kelby's books and he teaches some lab color techniques that I use at times. What a lot of people don't seem to know about Photoshop is that you can ...

Yes, Carol, we must have been on at the same time. I was trying to figure out how to embed the photo into the note. Andy had given me some instructions and I was trying it out with one of the images from my site. When it worked, I figured out how to replace it with your shot that I adjusted. I didn'...

Carol, I really like this photo. I like how you leave the viewer trying to see the converging lines of the shoreline and the skyline. My eye moves right along the shoreline and I'm wanting to see more. Great Suspense! My only suggestions would be to saturate the sky. A polarizing filter might have a...

My visit to Vermont was a bit late for the brilliant colors but I did find some nice yellows near Calvin Coolidge State Park. http://www.goldimagesphoto.com/newengland/index.html I've spent a lot of time in the west. I lived in Oregon for four years and I've vacationed in the Rockies. People there g...
