As I load kodak 400 for the first time in my life I think about new technology and how it changes the way we live, communicate and photograph. We have instant “gratification” with every photo,
I was very intrigued when Nikon released the D500, it promised speed and high ISO performance with it’s max ISO of 1.6M and
Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona. Antelope Canyon includes two separate, scenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as “Upper Antelope Canyon” and “Lower Antelope Canyon”.

This is Tamron’s 45mm F/1.8 Di VC USD SP lens.
Tamron claims this is the “Start of a New Era”…

There are times when photographers lose motivation, creativity or just haven’t shot in a while and don’t know what to take photos of to keep their “image making juices” flowing..

On my recent trip to our local National Park (Prince Albert National Park), the weather was ugly… very ugly! It was pouring rain in the city on our way up north and it wasn’t looking very promising for any good photos!
