Christmas Gear

This year we spent Christmas in Greenville. Instead of traveling to Florida like we usually do, Laura’s sister and mother came up to visit us. The foggy Christmas morning was spent opening gifts and relaxing. Since I’ve been so obsessed with time-lapse lately, I decided to do one of our gift giving routine. Here’s a … Continue reading Christmas Gear

Smart Phone Bracket

In my last post I wrote quite a bit about iOS apps for time lapse photography. Of course, if you’re going to do time-lapse with an iPhone, you’re going to need some way to keep it steady. For my iPhone 4 I had one of the Otter Defender cases with belt clip. With that case … Continue reading Smart Phone Bracket

Game Changing Cameras

As one might imagine, digital camera technology keeps getting better and better. Cameras are tinier than ever with even more features. Smartphones with editing apps are almost eliminating the need for point-and-shoot cameras. Even with all this, there are a couple of cameras to come on the market in the past couple of years that … Continue reading Game Changing Cameras

A New Camera Strategy

The LX5 won out over a whole slew of contenders, and the decision to get it means a new strategy for my day-to-day photography. … Continue reading A New Camera Strategy

The camera gods have not been smiling upon me lately. On our recent excursion to Shoals Junction my trusty Nikon D50 DSLR’s mirror got locked in the UP position for several panic-filled minutes. The camera was already showing its age, and I’ve been putting away a bit of cash for a replacement, but the incident … Continue reading Camera Dilemma

Too much use, almost to the detriment of our marriage, as it turns out. We fought over who got to use them. So, we bought a second … Continue reading One Eye or Two?

iPad After Six Months

It’s been over six months since I’ve had my iPad (well, nearly seven, actually) and has been about that much time since I first wrote about it. Since then I’ve had a chance to put it through its paces and see what apps I like best. I’m still frustrated by the lack of Flash. There … Continue reading iPad After Six Months

iPad – First Impressions

Our district purchased several iPads for special ed and for our ESOL teachers. I’ve had one for a week to put it through its paces and see how it might work, and how we might design some staff development. I can see the educational benefits of iPads in the classrooms, and I’ve seen some excellent … Continue reading iPad – First Impressions
