"Dieing to be Noticed."

I'm hoping summertime brings something as beautiful as this....

Not related to photography or art at all... my secondary project for spring break was completed some moments ago. I successfully installed a 36 inch satellite antenna with a motor that locks it onto the geosynchronous arc. What makes something to note is the fact that I lacked complex satellite equipment... so the only tools I had were an analog signal gauge, a calculator and a pair of pliers. After trial and error, some scientific inquiry - the dish locked onto the ark and the rest is history. Fun fun!

Every palace needs incredible light fixtures... this one true beauty is captured with the aid of the SB-800. The flash guesses, but tends to guess correctly. Seems like Nikon actually put some science into it's lighting system this time...

Sunset from my precipice... so beautiful now, summer time will speak of more beauty. What do you think?

You usually see pictures of these close to a lakebed in the summer...

And I can't resist warm tones...

A view from my watchtower...

I love shooting in warm tones, mostly - but today I set the temp to a cooler range. I like what I got.

We've had a long winter - I can't wait until April Showers come to reign in may flowers.

A steet littered with memories in the land of five rivers.

My sisters really know how to treat their brother. I have so much equipment that I always have to lug around in an ugly bag around where ever I go. Moreso, I have to carry two bags because of my laptop which is rather small, but the bag negates it being small anyway. So my sisters got me a LowePro Computrekker bag; the bag is spectacular! It has room for almost everything! And best part, it snuggly fits my new Nikon D2 into it! WahoO! Tomorrow's going to be a good trip to the wintery park - will post soon.

Brent - this camera is headed to a new home. I'm sure the new owner will take good care of it. If I was a richer man, I would keep this fine plastic crafted instrument. But I'm a poor student. Help?

A picture of the new born - care of a fellow photographer.

I'm spending my spring break trying my best to learn. I sit on my chair - the light feeds me - makes me feel better considering the lack of sunlight this winter. But overall, I feel like I'm being rushed. Strange. This photo captures the feeling.

Trying my best to reach out...

I was testing out the contrast on the the Nikon D2, it's spectacular at how it can capture the depth of the moment.


Now I'm on spring break, I finally have been able to spend sometime on enjoying photography. Moving from my previous camera to the new D2Hs has been - well, challenging. When you use a D70, life is relatively straightforward - now that I have a d2Hs - there are so many more variables to play with. Another thing, I loaded a standard curve into my D70 - that standard curve doesn't work at all in my D2Hs, so I need to do it all over again. How fun?

Expect by late tonight to have another post. :-)
