Learning Speedlights with Nikon SB-900

6 minute read

A few days ago I wrote about my experience shooting with the Nikon D700. At the time, I mentioned that I had borrowed the Nikon SB-900 speedlight (now discontinued) with which to learn the beginnings of flash photography; not wanting to go on a complete tangent about my learnings about flash photography, I didn’t dwell on it then. Today, though, I’d like to share some of my earliest learnings using the SB-900. ...

The Switch – Nikon D700

5 minute read

At the beginning of July, I commemorated one year with the Fujifilm X100T. Although it is more targeted and limited than an interchangeable-lens (ILC) camera.

Fujifilm X100T – a retrospective I still think that the Fuji X100T was one of the best possible cameras I could have picked up at the time. Its great manual controls and compact size made it a great camera for learning and taking everywhere. ...

Photoswipe Hugo gallery

3 minute read

As I’ve recently gotten more into photography, I’ve been feeling the dearth of a gallery on this site. While I’ve recently dusted off my Instagram account, I still want to be able to share my better pictures without forcing my visitors to enter Facebook’s internet dragnet. So I started looking at options. The first, and most obvious choice, was to see about whether I could scrape photos or photo links from my Instagram and mirror them here. ...
