Technical and home made photography stuff!

Day 192

From my star gazing last night: Horizon to horizon in 7 photos!  It took 13 last time!  {!-{>  Actually while the stars were out there was so much smoke in the air that the exposures took twice as long. North is at the top! Click on it a couple of times to see it best […]

Day 190

Still off on a tangent…we’ll get back to Alaska yet!  {!-{> There is a Total Solar Eclipse coming on the 21st of August, 2017.  It can be seen across the whole center of the US, including Idaho…the area of totality (complete sun blockage by the Moon) does include five or six square miles of Montana, […]

Day 189

The Dailylife Wife was cutting a red pepper for an ingredient in tonight’s dinner… Where the heck was this three weeks ago?  The theme for the State Fair photography this year was red. <<sigh>>  All photos were from my cellphone, BTW. And the dinner was: Italian Zucchini Boats!  Pretty good, too.  And low carb…{!-{P ~Curtis […]

Day 187

More action(?) at the Montana State Fair! A four photo panorama of the Photographic Exhibits, complete with Member(s), the Old Guard and the current Leadership. (Don’t forget to click on the photo a couple of times to enlarge it; BACK to return here!) A three photo panorama in fisheye mode…mildly noticeable… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 186

More light action at the Montana State Fair! Ghosts on the Tilt-A-Whirl!  Riding!   Dismounting! Waiting! More ghosts, now on the Midway… * ** * Okay, the last of the Midway lights, at least until I can get the GIF’s done… This field trip by the Camera Club was a lot of fun, and I […]

Day 183

We interrupt these regularly schedule whales to bring you the lights of the Montana State Fair! The Great Falls Camera Club had a photo shoot last night at the State Fair.  Here are mine. The Midway viewed from the Food Court.  All exposures are from 2 to 10 seconds.  Aperture is most irrelevant since I […]

Day 174, June 10th, part 2!

Our first whale! Well, the first one in focus and properly exposed… * * * * * ~Curtis in Icy Straight! {!-{>

Day 168, June 8th, part 10!

The Dailylife Wife photographing our departure down Endicott Arm in a three photo panorama. Click the photo a couple of times to see it larger.  BACK to return here!   And looking the other way… …she spies something in the distance! Why, it is that other cruise liner we saw in the post below! A […]

Special Edition!

The Camera Club went out last night to Belt to shoot burning steel wool…a  great time was had by all!  The steel wool was ignited and whirled around the head of Allan#1, the significant other of a Club member.  Special thanks to Alan#2 who had to leave early but left me his tripod when I […]

Day 155

I was waiting for our 14 day Alaskan Cruise to start and began to play around with my latest lens, the Rokinon 12mm f2.0 the Dailylife Wife got me for Christmas. While an outstanding lens for Star photos, which it the main reason I wanted it, this lens is completely manual and does not have […]
