Photography

Here will be a link to all of the photography I have done. I have been taking pictures for the longest time with a Fuji Finepix S9000. I just purchased a Canon Rebel T3. I am very impressed with this camera.

 

I can explain this - The peak occurred when a bad economic decline started and cell phone cameras started becoming good enough for most people's snapshots. Economic conditions have started to improve. And, the hobbiest photographer market has increased to the point that it is starting to take up the slack caused by the dieing point-and-shoot camera market. — Shared […]
Sometimes you have to use the right tool for the job - Yesterday I took a panorama shot of a building near the Cedars station in downtown Dallas. When I got home I used Adobe Lightroom to stitch the photos together and did what I could to correct the image. It’s not that good. The sky is blown out, it isn’t that sharp, and there is actually a […]
Today’s shot is of my 50mm prime lens - I also got to test some new lighting equipment (that I bought used). It’s is very basic. But is the beginning of what I need for doing portraits. Next is a backdrop. I’m thinking either a dropcloth or white sheet clamped to a pvc pipe hanging from hooks in the ceiling. It has the advantages […]
I’m going to try to get in the habit of taking and editing at least one photo… - I’m going to try to get in the habit of taking and editing at least one photo a day.

This is how brisket should look when it comes off the grill - I spent 11 hours smoking this piece of brisket at ~200 degrees Fahrenheit. This will result in moist and tender meat. Brisket is odd that way. To really get a good brisket, you have to cook the hell out of it without turning it into charcoal. A whole brisket takes even longer to cook (~24 […]
Trying more with black and white photography - Photo taken at Lockhart Smokehouse in Plano, Tx. Used my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and edited in Lightroom.

An Example of Why Camera Sales Are Slowing - Take a look at this picture. I suggest clicking on it to look at it in full size. After looking at it, take a guess as to which camera did I use to take this photo.   This photo was taken with the camera on my smart phone and edited using software on the smart […]
Here’s a couple of pictures I took this morning - The self portrait is me playing with the wireless capability I recently added to my camera. I was actually controlling the camera with my cell phone. Post imported by Google+Blog for WordPress.
