Frozen in Time

Time is one of those things that slips by quicker and quicker with each passing year. In actuality it doesn’t, but for some reason our perception of time is diminished as we age, perhaps it’s simply the scale of relativity… I don’t know… what I do know is I took some images of a wonderful…

Memory, Before I forget

Photoshop is a tricky beast, in part one Scratch that! , I talked about using a scratch disk to help improve performance.

In theory I can offer my opinion on which camera is best suited to underwater photography, but in reality I haven’t scuba-dived since Oakley Frogskins were in fashion (the first time around), and I never used a camera underwater. So my following observations are purely theoretical….

Canon Drive Modes

I was asked yesterday, and I couldn’t clearly remember what the exact difference between each mode is. So I looked it up and decided to add a post this morning before I forget. Canon cameras have three auto focus modes. One-Shot, AI focus and AI servo. One-Shot This mode is best for still subjects, when…
