I feel like I haven't been on here in forever, with school starting back up its tough to find time to mess around anymore!
But I finally got a chance to mess with the strobe kits that I won in @Destin's giveaway!
I'm trying to better my product/tabletop photography, this was shot with one...
So I had an attempt at photographing water droplets tonight, and besides accidentally shooting everything at f/5, I thought it came out decent. Obviously I missed the focus on the top of the droplet, because of only being at f/5. I think next time if I make sure I shoot at f/9-11 I will have...
I just picked up a Tokina AT-X PRO 100mm f/2.8 D MF AF on ebay for my Canon. They had it for sale with a "best offer" button and I threw an offer out there fully expecting to to be declined, but they took it!
What's your guys thoughts on this lens?
Paid $150 for it, lens came today its in...
I come from a town with a rich history, both good & bad. Read about it sometime if you're bored, Bordentown NJ. One of the first places European settlers ever made town, including Joseph Bonaparte (brother of Napoleon), former and exiled king of Naples & Spain. Like I said, very rich history...
I just purchased photomatix for the first time, wow what a program! Its crazy how much you can do with it in regards to HDR processing. Great first step before taking it into photoshop or lightroom for final editing.
If anyone out there likes messing with HDR photography, but might not be great...

So i posted recently about taking a trip up to NYC and that was this past weekend! I absolutely enjoyed my trip 100%, it was so much fun! I did not take photos 100% of the time but I did get some cool ones :)
I really like signs, so I got a few pictures of cool signs I found. And I've always...
I was in NYC for the weekend and took my first venture into B&H. Lots of gear, lots of used stuff, lots of irrelevant stuff (to me) and LOTS OF PEOPLE.
Little too crowded for my taste, but then again it is NYC.
Cool to check it out though.
Pulled this bad boy out of storage today, everything seems to be working mechanically and I picked up some film tonight. Can't wait to test it out this weekend and see how this old piece works!

So I just attempted focus stacking for the first time, more or less because I wanted to teach myself how to do it in Photoshop. Don't mind my "studio" setup, as it was a couple back t shirts and some led lights with home made diffusers. I think I missed the focus on the rear of the car a...
Anyone ever dabble in printing canvas and stretching it on a frame?
I am attempting it my first time shortly and just started building profiles to print the stuff on my HP.
Any tips or techniques?
Can't wait to try it out!
