Chrisinhouston's recent activity

  • I attended Brooks Institute from 1976 to 1979 when I graduated. That was when it was still owned by the Brooks family. I don't remember the costs involved to attend but it was pretty reasonable for...

  • I own it and use it from time to time. That being said I tend to find myself not shooting as many long shots with my M system as with my Canon DSLRs because when I use a long tele-zoom I am ...
  • Created discussion thread My thoughts on my new 28mm Macro lens
    Overall I like it. It seems pretty sharp both as a distance and macro lens. I like the little LED lights. I haven't used them a lot yet but I can see where they might help kick a bit of light in ...
  • Created discussion thread Fun in my kitchen
    I do most of the cooking for me and the Mrs. since she has the 9-5 job. This week I used up some things from my refrigerator and turned out a mock Beef Wellington. The piece of beef tenderloin was ...
  • Created discussion thread The Ice Plant in St. Augustine
    Good food and probably the best bar and cocktails in town.  It gets great sunlight in the late afternoon. The bar and dining area Old tools of the trade
  • I was having a PM conversation with another forum member about the recent food shots I posted and I figured I would point out that when I shoot detail shots like those shot under adverse lighting ...
  • Created discussion thread Just ordered the 28mm macro for $75!
    I was ordering something for my wife at Amazon.com and I noticed I had $224 in AMEX points so I put them to good use.  I had the choice of ordering from Canon or Adorama and with the latter there ...
  • Replied in Let's Eat!
    Actually all my dining shots are available light. At our table their was a small lamp, you can see it behind the wine glass in the first shot. There was a window just behind my right shoulder and ...
  • Created discussion thread Let's Eat!
    Last night was my wife's birthday and we ended up at one of our favorites, a local French restaurant and had a lovely dinner.  I asked to be seated near a big window so I could take advantage of ...
  • Created discussion thread Dinner out on our last night in Seattle
    Last night in Seattle we went to a place we like very much for dinner near the airport. They sat us outside on the patio and the early evening light was great as was the food and wine! I take the M ...
  • Created discussion thread Grid lines only with M-3?
    I was shooting this morning at sunrise where it would have been nice to have the grid lines in the viewfinder on my M3 for aligning my shot but couldn't get just grid lines, had to have the ...
  • Created discussion thread first horseback riding lesson for my GD
    I took the M3 along for my granddaughter's first horseback riding lesson. Mainly because it was light and easy and I had another bag with drinks and snacks so didn't want to add more weight with a ...
  • Thanks, that was done in Lightroom later on. I tweeked the Clarity slider to the left to reduce it slightly. I find that sometimes can act like an old fashioned diffusion or soft focus filter.  I ...
  • Yes but it was on my old M body, they had turned the lights down and everyone was dancing. Too dark for stills so I shot the video; it's ok but pretty noisy.
  • My wife's coworker invited us to his daughter's wedding and I brought along my M and new M-3, other than a few test shots this was my first time shooting anything big with the new body. They had a ...
  • Replied in Nope
    Thanks, it isn't a deal breaker for me. I try to remember to clear a memory card after the images are safely downloaded on a computer, having it on the MyMenu is just for those times I go out to ...
  • I am actually taking it to shoot at at a wedding today, albeit I am just a guest and not hired to take pictures. My M3 arrived on Wednesday and I haven't had too much time to get out with it other ...
  • On my original M as well as my Canon DSLRs I like to put "Erase" in the list on the MyMenu shortcuts. I like it as a quick way to clear a card of images. The M3 moved the "Play" menu items like ...
  • It is a Canon North America warranty so buying from Canada is not an issue for service. I bought it from Henry's and it was back ordered for about 2 weeks and then shipped promptly. I would do it ...
  • Yes I followed your link to B&H and instructions the body was priced $479 and the EV was an additional $18.99. I put it in my cart but wanted to wait until the weekend to clear ordering it with my ...
