End and Begin

The end of the Bluebonnets and the beginning of the Fire-wheels on our land outside Austin and at the edge of the Texas Hill Country.

The last shot of the day...

The Blue Hour Descends on the Pedernales

The last shot of the day. With the sun below the horizon, frogs croaking, and the bugs biting it was time to pack all my hiking gear and photographic equipment and hike out of the area. One last long exposure though on the falls that empty this swimming hole at Pedernales Falls State Park.

I will take a couple of these lens in a m4/3rds mount.

A wish list for those wonderful folks at Panasonic, Olympus or some cool third party lens company.

photo: ©Alan Pogue. I wish the systems I want to shoot with came with all the lenses I want to shoot with. But they don't. And here's what I want from the genius lens designers I know are out there somewhere. I'm tired of...

My favorite is in the Hunter S Thompson advice...

Great composition lesson here by +Rob Hanson

deep 'n dark that rolls inside my gut
black as a midnight no-moon november sky
i wish it were a swirling gurgling green or blue 
or a rippled orange sunset dream reflection
the sort that makes a photographer hard
hell, i would even take brown
at least there is some life
but it just rolls black 
over black
black
over black
haunted 'n dead
flowing from no where to no time

my black river

Kirk nails it again.  If you are middle aged guy interested in photography you have to read this.  

The graying of traditional photography and why everything is getting re-invented in a form we don't understand.

Gloria. Cropped image from Samsung Galaxy NX camera. 60mm macro lens. On the last day of the PhotoPlus Expo I finally got why the camera industry has hit the wall and may never come back again in the same way. The folks who l...

Good review on sunburst photography from +Michael Frye .

And the sun will move up at northerly slant rather than directly overhead.  In an update, the Photographer's Ephemeris now will show the sun arc travel and display shadow lines (Geodetic Calculator). Wonderful tool for landscape shooters.

Photographing Sunbursts - In the Moment: Michael Frye's Landscape Photography Blog

How do you capture a mood on a clear, sunny day? The answer, I think, is to go with it—to emphasize the sun, the blue sky, and the brightness of the day.

Very thorough review of the new Olympus OM-D E-M1

The Olympus OM-D E-M1 Review

Olympus OM-D E-M1 with 12 - 40mm f2.8 lens I was lucky enough to play with a pre production E-M1 along with the Olympus 12 - 40mm f2.8 lens for about a week. A big thank you to Charles from Olympus...
