A blog about photography, reading, the San Jose Sharks, and anything else that comes to mind.

One of my first shots with the G3, and one of the reasons I love a flip-out/tilting screen. This camera was on a three inch table top tripod and thanks to the rotating screen I didn't have to lay flat on my stomach to see what the camera was seeing. And, once I liked what I was seeing, I could just tap the screen to snap the photo. I honestly don't think I would want to go back to a camera without a rotating screen, it's just so useful. I am also happily surprised by how much I like the touchscreen on the camera. I originally thought it to be a gimmick feature, but it can come in handy for more than just selecting focus or swiping through photos.
It should be no surprise that I took some bracket shots of the waterfalls from the other day. I'm not so happy with the HDR shots as I was with the normal shots, which for me is a little strange, but I think the blame goes on me, I rushed the shots. Note to self, and other photographers, don't go to a shoot with someone who's not a photographer, you'll end up feeling rushed even if they're in the car chatting happily on the phone oblivious to your shooting.
Monday, as just about everyone knows, Apple gave a peek at a couple of its updates in the operating systems arena, both mobile and desktop. Most people knew what to expect in the first half, OS X Lion is coming in July. And although I knew what most of the updated stuff was going to be I still found myself wanting to update right then and there. I mean why wouldn't you? It's $30, and I don't have to run down to a store to get it. Actually, I couldn't if I wanted to, but that's another story. But it's the second half of the presentation that was more, interesting, if you're an iOS person.
