It Has Been Awhile

It has been awhile since my last post, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  I have been busy living life to the fullest.  I have been further honing my photography skills as well as stepping up my commitment and dedication to my fitness goals.  Often the two conflict: late night cityscape photography interferes with planned early morning workout sessions.  But so far I am still managing to do both.

Flickr Explore

I was very excited to learn this morning that one of my images was added to Flickr’s Explore. At least I suspect that it was added based on the amount of activity on the image in the past 24 hours.  (https://www.flickr.com/photos/53333599@N02/34068655963/)

I plan to spend the day with a 90 mm Macro lens mounted on my camera. I hope to capture some great images.  However I am a bit concerned that there may be limitations on what I can shoot because I am not taking a flash unit with me.  I will check back in and let you guys know how it works out.

Happy Shooting and have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Welcome

Welcome to my blog! I am excited about this journey into the world of blogging. I am hopeful and optimistic about this endeavor.  

I am passionate about photography.  In addition to photography I have a love for all things related to health and fitness. So my daily struggle is what bag accompanies me on my daily endeavors: the gym bag or the camera bag.  Presently I find it a bit challenging to lug both around.   The purpose of this blog is to challenge myself to shoot more and share more.  

Although the primary motivation of this blog is to my love for photography, I am not one dimensional.  So I am certain my other passions and interests will be reflected here as well.  

So again, welcome!  Continue reading “Welcome”

Neutral Density Filters

I was recently shooting and looking to capture the NYC skyline at sunset or sunrise. After extensive research I purchased a neutral density filter. Actually I purchased two: one graduated neutral density filter and one variable. I found the graduated ND filter to render better results that were more in line with what I was looking for.  I fell in love with it so much that I plan to keep it in my camera bag whenever I am shooting outdoors and need to a slower shutter speed.
