Wow factor - Film lenses with adapters on digital cameras

I got my first film lens to digital camera adapter in 2012, when I received a Minolta lens as a gift. I work with a Canon 7D. My daughter, a wedding photographer, told me about using an adapter. They aren’t expensive, so I gave it a try. The adaptor fits between your camera and the film lens.Cottonwood leavesI’m glad I decided to take the risk and invest in an adapter - which sell for $30-$50 on Amazon.com.Fotodiox adapterSince that time, I picked up a Canon A1 at a garage sale,... continue reading

The "It" factor

We've all heard of it, the "it factor".A quick online search and it is described as an indefinable something that makes someone special. I'd never given it much thought......until a recent neighborhood gathering. There were lots of new people to meet, and as a "baby" photographer I'm always interested in meeting young families. There were plenty of babies at this particular event, all of them adorable, sweet and beautiful.But one little guy stood out from the rest.... continue reading

All I can say was ...... HOLY MOLEY, that was a close one!Actually what I said was," HOLY $&@#%#! This is crazy fun!But only after 8 exposures, BAM! The largest lightning bolt I ever came face to face with, struck the Chicago skyline, right in front of me! It was one of the most scariest moments of my life while taking photos. But I knew I was able to captue it, the "once in a lifetime" shot! I raced back into the car and that's when the hail started coming down. In certain parts of... continue reading

That Sentimental Factor

I’m finally doing it—I’ve just requested payment from DT!First it was, do I cash in at the $100th?Well it included the exclusive bonuses, so I thought, nah, I’ll wait ‘til I reach $100 of just sales.Silly, was my BFF's reaction to that, might as well wait until it's $200 was her tongue & cheek remark.Then I had to make a decision how as to how to receive my payment, Paypal or check.Paypal?But I wasn’t sure if I have to pay a fee and that’s just goes against my grain …... continue reading

The “why not” factor

It is amazing how many great things can happen when someone just says “Why not?”.Well, sometimes anyway…Standing on the top of a 48 story buildingand saying “Why not?” when someone suggests jumping off the roof is probably not the epitome of a great example when the question helped improve oneself!But just how many advances in human history have come about because one person simply tried something while thinking “Why not? It may work”.The steam engine, electricity, space travel... continue reading
