I love rainbows (and other optical phenomena), and, upon seeing them, will do all possible to capture them. This view is from near the end of the Glacier Gorge Trail (coming back from Sky Pond). This was the best image I could get of the rainbow. The problems with this image are numerous, yet I …

But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 Seeing that we have a great high priest that is passed into the Heavens, Jesus the SOn of God, let us hold fast the profession of our faith. For we have not an high priest …

The Nikon 1: A few thoughts

  Posted in Technology on

  by Chris

The Nikon 1, the newest entry in the world of mirrorless, generates a number of thoughts for a Canon shooter as myself.

There are some new images posted from my everglades trip here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/april_forever_photography/sets/72157627630507201/ Enjoy! Many Bothan spies (mosqitos) died to bring you these pictures… Actually, I can still hear the hideous beasts buzzing in my ears occasionally. 10 hours of relentless biting has made me look rather like a measles victim!

Some of you may notice I’ve been gone for more than two weeks! I’ve been in Colorado. After that, I had the evil TDSS virus.

Landscape and Nature Composition – Rule of Thirds, Part 2: Subject

  Posted in Composition on

  by Chris

This is part 2 in the series, the previous concerning itself with the placement of horizons, the next with the placement of leadind lines (the most subtle and tricksy of the three). So the question is, what about the Rule of Thirds in subject placement? The answer is, initially, of course, not to rely rigidly …
