Daily Photography

I encourage you to indulge in your hobby daily. My favorite hobby is photography. I’ve wanted to learn photography since I was in high school, but, until the birth of digital photography, it always felt beyond my reach.  I got interested again because, about ten years ago, someone asked me what I liked to do […]

Trivial Pursuits

Well, trivia about one of my many pursuits, anyway. It’s been another one of those weeks, so I’m throwing something together at the last minute.  But, at least this is a fun one.  It was recycled recently on Facebook, but the original post is from last year about this time. I love trivia almost as […]

Photography 101 by Canon

Light Field Camera

Well, this is interesting… Some time ago, I read about a revolutionary new idea in cameras; focusing after taking the photograph. Having had autofocus occasionally grab the wrong thing in a photo, this idea intrigued me.  The idea that a camera could simply capture all the available light, store it in a photographic format, and […]
