India trip photos

My recent trip to India for about 4 weeks was good and I hope to go there again someday, but to visit a different part of the large country. I was in Rajasthan, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, and Delhi. While traveling around in the north part of the country I stayed in Delhi, Agra, Bharatpur, Jaipur, Manda...

National Geographic photographer Jay Dickman presentation

Last night I couldn't get to sleep so I fired up my tablet and watched this video of a talk by National Geographic photographer Jay Dickman. He appears to be in his late 60s and has been a photojournalist and commercial photographer also over the years. I enjoyed his talk and presentation that also ...

Rare as a roll of 620 film

Who doesn't love old wooden cable spools? Someday they will probably be as rare as a roll of 620 film or a horny toad. So, enjoy them while you can... :lol: Ehime-ken in Japan yesterday.

Dentist still uses KM A200

I went to the dentist for a routine checkup and cleaning this morning here in Japan. They did all the normal stuff including x-rays. Also, they took photos of my teeth and I was a bit surprised that they were using a KM A200 with a close-up flash attachment on the lens with 2 small flashes and anoth...

The Digicams that Roared

Recently I was reminded again about how even our tiny sensor digicams are darn capable and even my lowly Canon G16 would probably have been a dream years ago for the famous photographers represented in this photo exhibition: Radical Transformation: Magnum Photos into the Digital Age http://www.photo...

How to get list of my threads?

Is there a way here to list all the threads that I have started? I checked the control panel and couldn't find anything. I also looked at the search options and couldn't find a way there. Even better if I could get a list of all the threads I started in particular boards here. On dpreview you can do...

My stroll through Yodobashi Camera

This morning I was walking through Yodobashi Camera. Didn't even pick up any cameras, but just surveying the usual, extensive landscape of row after row after row of camera gear all begging to be touched. Anyway, it got me to thinking about my most expensive camera I have ever bought in my whole lif...

Flight from Moscow to Tokyo

Recently while flying from Moscow to Tokyo on Aeroflot I took some photos out the window at night with my Canon G16 and it's 28-140mm (expressed in FF terms) f1.8-2.8 lens using raw. I had considered using my Olympus E-M10 or E-M5, but the only lens I had that would cover a reasonable range was the ...

Blurb B&W photo books

Some of you may remember this thread from 2013 about making photos with Blurb: http://www.photoclubalpha.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=7473 Last year as an experiment I worked on making my first Blurb book using Lightroom 5.6. I finished it and ordered a copy in August. It is B&W standard l...

Indian Marker Tree in British Columbia

I took the photo of this strange, whimsical tree in British Columbia in 2001 with my Olympus D-510Z. I used to see it often and wonder about it. Today, by chance, someone on Facebook posted the following article and I now realize that it is probably an Indian marker tree. Not a great photo, but just...

David Muench, the famous landscape photographer, is well known for his use of 4x5 view cameras, but he switched to using digicams a few years ago. He writes about using a Canon PowerShot G10 and Panasonic Lumix FZ50 in 2010: http://www.outdoorphotographer.com/columns/natural-connections/stormlight.h...

Take a walk on the wild side: Thailand photos

I got back from the week in Sapporo yesterday so finally I have a chance to post about the recent Thailand trip. Last month we returned to Japan from a month in Thailand. It was my 5th time there since 1985. We flew into Bangkok and stayed there for a week before flying up to Chiangmai. By the way, ...
