As many people, I have been skeptical of the mirrorlesscamera, but now I had to think again on this issue.But because today those who work in microstock photography should buy a mirrorless? Many photographers have told me that the best camera is the one you have at the time you need to take a picture. And mirrorless cameras have a huge advantage: they are small, light and compact. This means that the camera kit (a camera body, two or three lenses, memory cards and a mini-... continue reading

Who doesn’t love a before and after photo comparison – whether it’s a weight loss success or a home renovation?As a weight loss mind coach I work with clients on an internal transformation. I show my clients how to move from a “Weight loss is hard and I can’t do it” mindset to one that says “I easily and enjoyable return to my natural, ideal weight”! Making this the default mindset results in sustainable behaviour change and finally the desired external transformation.The... continue reading

While getting ready for a safari trip (about which I will write much more in coming weeks, I hope), I am confronted by an extremely strict weight limit:26 pounds!This must include checked baggage and carry-on, toothbrush, clothing and camera :(Winnowing down my choices has been extremely difficult.What's more valuable for a safari?A wide angle to get the most from the landscape, or a flash for indoor shots of family post game ride?What do I need more, another book, or a back-up battery?... continue reading
Tripods!Is carbon fiber really worth the extra $?Currently, I use a Bogen-Manfrotto tripod (I think it's model 3021B).It's fine--tall, and relatively sturdy--but it's HEAVY.Hauling it around when I already have a camera body or two in hand is a hassle.I'm not super happy with the ball head, either (also Bogen-Manfrotto).It works, but it's not all that easy to adjust, especially with a heavy camera/lens combo.I've been checking out the Gitzo Mountaineer tripods, and even tinkered... continue reading
How in the space of less than 1 short year, would you set about going from being in this shape to being in this one? Craig today!In this case, it took a lot of work.The doctors were after Craig to lose weight because of the trouble with his knees.Luckily, the VA hospital has a program called "MOVE" which helps overweight veterans to lose the weight.We learned to read the labels, check the portion sizes! and to get up off our lazy duffs and get moving.We chose to follow (sorta) South Beach... continue reading
