Technical and home made photography stuff!

Day 341

What was up in the Sky last night!  Moonrise!   * * And those same photos cropped to 100%…they are unclear because the Moon was seen through a LOT of atmosphere at this angle, and that much air can be very unstable. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 305

A little about a veteran lens I have.  I collect Argus Cameras, and the most popular of them is the C3 “Brick”.  For a bit of fun I got an adapter for a C3 lens to put it on my digital Canon M2.  I have not researched it much, but I expect this lens is […]

Day 299

This is the same scene as below, but done with four vertical/portrait oriented photos, still with the 12mm lens. And here are the four originals, downsized. * * * ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 298

This is a two photo panorama taken with my 12mm wide-angle lens on the M2.  I then stitched it together.  The camera was in the horizontal/landscape position. Here are the two original photos (downsized). * ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 297

Here it is on another day of snow.  About two to three times what we had yesterday morning.  These are two rolling panoramas from my cellphone.  You start the panorama setting and it makes the photo as you swing the camera around.  This first one is with the camera/phone held horizontally.  It makes for a […]

Day 295

The Camera Club went to a ghost hunt last weekend.  Success!  I had planned to post these yesterday, but I actually had work for Avis and drove to Idaho Falls and back… The medium ghost is Toots, and the really short one is the two year old granddaughter of the club president, Parsley.  {!-{P   […]

Day 294

The Camera Club went to a ghost hunt last weekend.  Success!  I had planned to post these yesterday, but I actually had work for Avis and drove to Idaho Falls and back…   (Done with an 8 second exposure time and a strong neutral density filter!) I hope you had a Happy Halloween! ~Curtis in […]

Day 263

One of the camera modes on my cellphone is a “rolling” panorama…the camera will make a really wide photo while you swing it from one side to another.  It works pretty well! Normally…but not today… Click on it a couple of times to enlarge it…if you dare.  BACK to return!   That red blotch on […]

Day 246

The family traveled up to Kalispell this weekend.  Lugwrench is attending Woodbadge, an advanced leadership course for adult Boy Scouters, near Big Fork and the family took the occasion to visit with the Dailylife Grandparents! This is another technique using a slow shutter speed.  These are between 1/10th and 1/15th of a second. This effect […]

Ever have on of those days that started okay, but then everything started moving on you? !!! This is done […]
