About me:

My progression through imaging has been classic; My first image was with a pinhole camera and I started with black and white film in high school darkrooms. My college education was distracted with slide film photography and started working professionally using color print films. When digital came into the picture I adopted early. Digital photography shifted me from specializing in star trails to timelapse, and finally I've come to enjoy cinematography the most.

  • It's super common. Just search for "flyaway" or "lost drone" online and you'll see all the sob stories. I found a Phantom 3 once in a very hard to get to spot that had been abandoned. My friend ...
  • Correct.... uhm.. I'll go with FREE TURN
  • Mostly I just kept a constant lookout, but a few things I've learned: Rich neighborhood thrift stores are more likely to have higher quality stuff.  You can tell who lives in a neighborhood by ...
  • Ok, I'm going to take that free turn and try this again... This was my first place I had in mind but thought it would be too difficult for people.  I just hope I haven't swung too far on the ...
  • Right.  Maybe that was too easy.
  • Now they have a ladder from below to get in and the exit is still as your picture shows. I've been on that tour twice because I like taking out of towners there. Where is this train?
  • I feel sure that is at Mesa Verde National Park - Is that the route out of Balcony House?
  • Ya, and with cool backgrounds visible below.. You almost never see that.  The other shots I'd like to get would be orbiting video clips from slightly above. A local pilot offered to take me up with ...
  • Yep. For example, my sound recorder lasts about 2 minutes on 4 brand new Energizer brand alkalines. I can run the same setup for about 2 hours using high discharge rate NiMH batteries. It's not ...
  • I can't imagine why this has not been declared a national holiday in every country in the world yet.  Happy Bayer Day indeed and please can we all take the day off too?
  • I thought about shooting a balloon festival near me recently. I only found out about it the day before and didn't research it enough to feel comfortable shooting it, and the fear of getting chewed ...
  • The biggest reason I don't let my lenses get hot is because it will cause gases to dissipate from the grease, which collects on the glass and causes hazing.  Hazing cannot be cleaned off, it ruins ...
  • Ya.  This is where I am now.  Collecting.  The thing I've found though, is that even lenses I thought I'd never really use or thought they would suck, don't.  So I end up using them all for ...
  • Replied in don't worry
    I have one drone that I will need to retrofit when this takes effect. I don't plan on doing anything until just before then either, because I figure by that time, we will have more and better ...
  • Created discussion thread Photography Related Songs/Lyrics?
    What's your favorite song, or a song you like with lyrics related to photography? Listed by performing artist or songwriter. I'll start the list off with a few favorites of my own: Kraftwerk: the Model
  • I agree and second all of this.  Plus I can add that the Watson MX AA's from B&H are the best deal anywhere for high discharge rate AA's.  I think they're every bit as good as my Eneloop Pro's and ...
  • Replied in Batteries
    I always buy the best deal I find on ebay and have about 60 or 100 batteries of all brands over about 20 years of experience telling me it doesn't matter. I notice no difference other than warning ...
  • Not only lift that is the problem.  Batteries start to discharge energy erratically... and pretty quickly once they get a bit hot.  I most ly agree that if he started with cool batteries, they ...
  • Lots of people probably hate me for it but I've removed hundreds of them. I figure I don't need stickers on my stuff, and I always considered them part of the packaging, which you guessed it.. I ...
  • A lot of drones will not even take off if it's hotter than about 38 degrees.  Not because of some software limitation, but because the batteries start having problems.  My friend's Spark won't ...
