This video answers the age old question.. SHOULD I PUT A FILTER ON MY LENSES.. Thanks Tony for the answer..
Check out my sister site at snapshotplanet.weebly.com . I am posting deals that I have found across the internet, and there is also an area for getting together with other photographers to go on photo outings together. Check out the FUN!!
Drones has been banned in Yosemite National Park!! I knew this would be coming, and I am sure we will see more bannings down the road.. I fly radio control aircraft, and understand the dangers that these vehicle could cause. As they become popular more people will have access to these machines that might not have the skills to keep the vehicles in control.. Most of these machine state that they almost fly by themselves. I guess in a way this can be misleading, and yes they have come along way from a couple years ago. Also being a photographer I have been amazed seeing some of the video and images that people have posted. I have also seen careless videos of people flying these machines as if nothing can happen. I want to see the rc aerial photography hobby to expand, but we just have to use our heads. ALWAYs keep safety on your mind, so the hobby can grow even further. One accident can hurt the whole hobby, and I promise it would bring on a mass banning of a lot of areas. Here is the link to read about the Yosemite banning. Have fun, and PLEASE FLY SAFELY. http://www.nps.gov/yose/parknews/use-of-unmanned-aircraft-systems-drones-prohibited-in-yosemite-national-park.htm
At times I wonder what drives me as a photographer.. It is 100 percent the passion. It is what makes me get up at all hours of the night for the perfect moment that can be caught in an image.. Yes, mother nature does not always work with you, but when she does, I can't explain the feeling. It is the biggest high, and makes all the sacrifices worth while, and a great feeling of accomplishment. I found this video on youtube, and I can relate to everything that is said. I have followed Jay & Varina Patel for some time, and really enjoy there work. The average person does not realize what effort goes into an image. This hits it right on the head!! Good job Jay & Varina.!!!
I was watching tv the other night, and saw this commercial.. I never heard of this organization, so I did a little research.. As a photographer I feel it is a GREAT idea.. Children's creativity always amazes me. Check it out!!
There is something big coming on the horizon.. I have been working night and day on this new project.. Right now it looks like it will arrive sometime in April. I will keep everyone posted as to the exact date.
This blog really has nothing to do about photography.. NO, I take that back, there was hidden cameras, and it all was edited well. So I guess it can make it into this blog.. LOL Nascar driver Jeff Gordon pranks a person that has bad mouth him in the past Enjoy!!
