Welcome to my first blog. I don’t really have a specific plan for what I want to do with this, it’ll probably just be a place for me to write about random things that pop up during my journey as a photographer. I was never much into writing diaries as a kid, so updates probably won’t be very regular.
Anyway, thanks for reading.
I went to the PMA 2010 show this past week. For those who’ve never heard of it, the PMA, which used to stand for Photo Marketing Association, show is a convention where a lot of the big players in the photo industry like to show off their newest gear. At least that’s what it used to be. This year the show felt a lot smaller than one I went to a few years back, heck Canon wasn’t even there, and most of the big guys had already announced their newest stuff before the show even started.
Over Thanksgiving, instead eating too much turkey, I went to Machu Picchu. A gallery and a few more words after the break.
I just realized that I don’t have any pictures of my other album option online, so here they are.
On the same day that I was doing that self portrait, I was also testing a couple of new optics I got for my Lensbaby. A fisheye optic and a soft focus optic. Neither of these types of lenses would be something I would use very often, so it was never worth it to buy expensive full fledged auto focus ones. However, once in a while I would see a shot that makes me wish I had one of these lenses, so when Lensbaby released these optics recently for very reasonable prices (both together were under $250) I snapped them up. Test shot gallery after the break.
