Canon 350, 18-55mm
focal: 18mm
aperture: f22
shutter: 1/20sec
ISO: 100
time: 3/25/09, 7:16:17 PM
extras: polarizing filter

All right-y then, I sort o' feel like talking.

Lately I've been reading this. So that's why you got the above and this. Before reading the landscape book, I'd never though to shoot landscapes with a super wide aperture. I've also been working on shooting more. When we go out and I do some shooting I'd usually get in around 50 shots. Now I'm pushing 150 -200 per shoot. So yeah I'm happy with that. But what I'm not happy about is the amount of space on my left on my hard drive.

So with that in mind, here's David duChemin's backup solution. I really like his setup, but I've got no where near the amount of cash to set that up. So for now I'll stick with burning my cd's.

Oh, Canon released a new Rebel series camera this week. The new "EOS REBEL T1i." It's Canon's version of Nikon's D90.(You know with video and all.) Which means since I got my XT 1 year and 3months ago, three I repeat 3 rebels series have been released. Plus this puts the Xti and XS on the outs. People are only going to buy the XSi with the live view and now the T1i. Amazon's already got it for pre-order. There's a bunch of other stuff I want to talk about with the T1i but I save it for my blog. :)

Other things of interest:

Tamron's releasing a new wide angle lens. It's gona' be sweet.

McDonald’s sponsoring a new group on Flickr. But you better read that fine print.

Will Tasha Ford finally get her video camera back? Um..yeah, there's three different links. So you can read the whole story.

What, Yahoo's CEO doesn't even use his most popular site?

Zach Arias' a critiquing. Warning you may feel really crudy towards your own photography. I know I did.

If your not reading Dave your missing out on some awesome photo's of NYC.

And if your not following Chase Jarvis on twitter or facebook. Do it.

And this...this is just unexplainable.

Singing in the rain

It rained all day here today.  And I forgot to bring my umbrella to school.  So I got re-wet as I walked to each class.  4 times.

Aside from that, I shot a dress rehearsal for a dance concert tonight, and
 was quite pleased with the resulting chemistry between my camera and the wonderful people on stage.  They just clicked.  I didn't even see that pun coming, so I doubt any of you did.

A Beach. With Clouds.

Wow guys, sorry for the absence.  Tim and I were both at the beach for the weekend.  We've got pictures, which I'm sure some of you have seen on Facebook.  We'll have photos up on our respective blogs.  So don't worry, we are alive.

I used Brian's paper texture for these.  The clouds were naturally that dark.
