Totally borded with nothing to do? Stop by Edward Jones @ 66 S High St, Dublin to view some delishes photos of berries, peppers, mushroom, etc. Will be hanging around for the months of Aug and Sept.
One of the great things about digital photography is the ability to make a panoramic image on the spot if, if, you can see in your head how it will stitch together and will tell a better story than just one image.
Last weekend, March 24, I had the chance to photograph history when in Washington, DC the March for Our Lives event was held. The crowds were epic and at one point it was impossible to move! I was trying to get to the corner of 7th NW and Pennsylvania Ave NW and the closest I could get to Pennsylvania Ave NW was about 100 ft out. It was, however, an great opportunity for a panoramic to show the crush of people attending the event.
On the technical side… Nikon D800, Nikon 24mm f1.4 and Microsoft Research Image Composite Editor, you can get it here.

Buddy of mine, Jamie – photographer up in Chicago – just had a chance to see Herb Albert. Interesting how things come back around and the fun part of being a photojournalist. From the archives, Mr Albert from 1966 in NM. And in the folder next to Albert was Paul Harvey from the mid 70’s… really need to see who else is hanging around in my photo attic.
Read an interesting article on Auto ISO and manual settings for my Nikon’s. Here is the article: Auto ISO
So I took a couple of minutes and set the D800 on manual, 1250 @ f8 to shoot the dogs playing in the backyard. Evening light coming from behind the dogs. ISO pegged at 6400 and images look good. Read the article, it’s a good move for those that want better control over image gathering.
Note the details on the left side of Lola’s face and having the luxury of picking a high shutter speed to stop the action of Hanna and Lola.
Just another tip of how to get it done to put in the toolbox.
