Hand, up close

A friend of mine called me today to get together for a small experimental photoshoot. Hands, of course, was the topic of this shoot. Click the photo to view the whole set on Flickr.

Upgraded to Flick Pro, Added More Photos

I just upgraded to a Flickr Pro account since I couldn't have more than 3 sets of photos. My trip to the Bronx Zoo a few days ago resulted in some decent pictures. Click the image below to view the Bronx Zoo set.

A Traveler’s Life

Posted on Thursday, February 14th, 2008 at 3:08 pm

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about traveling, and living by it. Imagine having no permanent home, living as a modern nomad - that would be pretty scary and exciting at the same time! Having no permanent job/source of income and shelter can be quite the challenge for many, and I don't think many have the guts to go for something like this.

One type of person that I could see doing this is a Photographer. Traveling and experiencing every corner of the Earth, while capturing beauty, style, culture, nature, and more. There are also different types of "traveling" people where instead of never having a permanent home, they reside in homes for short periods of time. This could be due to having a job that requires a lot of relocating, or if this person just can't stand being in a single environment for a long time. More after the jump...

Photography: Fresh Cameras & Gear for 2008!

Posted on Friday, January 25th, 2008 at 10:48 am

PMA LogoThis year's biggest camera show known as PMA 08, in Las Vegas is well underway, and there have been some pretty awesome releases and announcements. These things are ranging from affordable consumer (and prosumer!) cameras, to high-end technology that you probably can't afford but want anyway.

It looks like bigger LCDs, image stabilization, and face detection are what's hot now, and steep prices are a thing of the past! Canon announced its new A series cameras, now boasting more features and cheaper price tags! The model that mainly caught my eye was the A590. It features full manual control, Optical Image Stabilization, and a handsome 2.5" screen, all for $180! They've got some other lower models which are a bit cheaper, but drop features like the optical stabilization and manual control. Yea, it may not be the thinnest and most advanced point and shoot on the market, but for its price and what it can do, this is the piece to buy if you've been meaning to get into digital-photography (or looking for an awesome update over that 3MP brick you keep in a briefcase).

Canon has definitely been on a roll in the last few days announcing a new version of the Rebel series (Rebel XSi), 4 new prosumer and professional lens (1, 2, 3, 4), amongst a few other things. Now, clearly, Canon isn't the only company exhibiting at the biggest photography show. There are some other big names like Nikon, and Fuji on the block with some eye-turners too...
