BMC_20100313_4749

One of the few images of me. Rebecca likes to get me in action at times, even though I try to duck.. This is my Feisol CT-3372 and the older leveling head. I wrote a little about tripods back in the fall. Since that time I have had lots of experience with the Feisol CT-3372 […]

HDR (High Dynamic Range) Part 2

Before we go any further, let me clarify that most of the time I shoot from a tripod, BUT there are times I use AutoBracketing and Continuous High Frame rate on my Nikon D3s. Having a Frame rate of 9 frames/sec helps and I am usually using a wide angle lens (16mm Fisheye or 17-35mm). […]
