I've got a few different posts to make today. First...

Tandra's Valentine's Day giftCollapse )More later... I'll post pictures from the past week.

Feb. 18th, 2003

Over the three-day weekend there were 351 new entries on my friends page. 81 of them were from friends, 270 from communities.

I bought a telephoto lens yesterday - 80-210mm with a 2x converter, meaning my max focal range is now 420mm. That's a hell of a lot of zoom. I'm pleased. I now have to master high-speed photography as any movement of the camera is terribly magnified with a zoom lens and my hands are relatively shaky.

I also ordered my cable release Sunday so that should arrive this week.

I'm concentrating on nailing technical things about photography right now. After I have a feel for that I'll move on to composition.

Remember how I said I'd replaced the light in the living room and put in an X10 switch? Well I don't have a photo of the switch, but here are before and after photos under the cutCollapse )

Stay tuned for a barrage of photo posts this afternoon.

Effects of a polarizer

They basically all look like this:

Again, if you care...Collapse )


Night shots from last Wednesday night

This is the Sedgwick County Historical Museum, I think. There are a couple other subjects under the cut.

For those interestedCollapse )


Here's a funny thing I saw last Friday when I skipped work to go to the Home Show:

And under the cut are the rest of the shots from this weekend - basically some good shots of Tandra.

tired of this yet?Collapse )
