Yes, Yes I am looking forward to Photo Plus Expo 2016

ppe-2016-thumb-registration-is-openIts that time of the year again. Photo Plus Expo, the largest photography and imaging conference in the region, is upon us. I have attended the conference, at the Javits Convention Center, in New York, for many years now. The conference has been my best tool in making my  purchasing decisions. If I need and want new equipment, there is a great chance I will be able to test it there. I also get to enjoy the company of good people and  geek out on photography.

Here is what I am looking forward this year when I attend the Photo Plus Expo. (more…)

#Photowandering #withJamesMaher

The summer has ended. I sit here looking at the last bit of photo wandering for the season. This was a group walk with friends and fellow photogs. I was invited by my good friend and Everyday Photographer Scott Wyden  to take part in an NYC Photo Day with James Maher and his guest Darlene Hilderandt.  We could not ask for a better day. The sun hung brightly in the sky without melting us. New York had a slight pleasant breeze. We could not ask for a better day.

#Photowandering: The DUMBO Coffee Run

It may seem a little looney, however, my whole photowandrring routine started as a coffee run. Kids were out of school and I had a duty not to wake them up. It’s a simple goal. So instead of just staying in the house quietly I get up and walk, always seeking coffee. One of my favorite places to go for coffee is in DUMBO and that’s where I ended up on this fine day.

#Photokina, What Caught My Eye

originalPreviewJW.jspRecently I may have started thinking about purchasing a new camera. I had a bad day with my Sony A7. Photokina, a European trade fair for photo and video, is upon us and lots of new gear was announced. I did see  a few new cameras that caught me geeky eye as well as a few other bits of gear. Here a brief listing of what gave me gear acquisition syndrome.

#PhotoWandering in Central Park

It was a comfortable morning , in the summer of 2016. I was up early , as usual, and found myself on a bus heading to New York City. Once I got to the city and realized I would not melt, I found myself drawn to Central Park. It is a location I am obsessed with, you can say. I always find myself here at some point, just walking. It’s very easy to be alone there. On this morning, with my camera in hand, I wandered through the park just because.

Recalibrating expectations, I broke my Sony A7 

In New Jersey, there are a lot of train tracks and they need maintenance. The people doing the work don’t often get coverage. I changed that. To get to the photo op I had to travel to a location and then walk, about a half mile on rough terrain, to the job site. The Sony A7 was my backup camera. It was packed recklessly in the bag. I had a short window of time and paid the price for rushing. When I got to the office I found the LCD screen damaged. While the camera was usable, with its EVF, it left me with a LOT to think about. Should I repair, or replace.  If I replaced the Sony A7, with what?
