Day 204

The Montana State Fair starts today (or 26 Jul 19…). I was asked to set up theGreat Falls Camera Club old camera display in the corner. More to come! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 132

I tried to make a cheap slide copier out of a PVC pipe. It didn’t work well with my Android phone, but the iPhone has possibilities… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 74

I borrowed a new camera from a friend, a Canon M50. It is really nice! The day was crappy, but it still worked pretty good. So while I was playing around I decided to do a wide-angle vs panorama comparison. This is a 10mm wide-angle photo. The second photo is two 18mm photos stitched together […]

Day 055

We went whale watching again today.  Some good sightings, but nothing too spectacular.  More on that later.  The Moon was out!  And it is Full Moon the day after we leave.  This morning WAY too early there was a nice view of the Moon over the Hawaiian waters, but scaffolding got in the way…so here […]

Day 050

Three views of a rock at the beach. I did the water on a time exposure.  I didn’t bring my Neutral Density filter to the beach with me, so these are not too long. 1/8s f/45.0 ISO100 300mm for the first one,  1/15s f/45.0 ISO100 300mm for this one, and 1/15s f/45.0 ISO100 300mm for […]
