dallenp51 Home safe and sound. Ansel, thank you so much for the note and the lovely prints! That was so kind of you. The Nikoroid arrived yesterday, overflowing with the stories of your adventures. In fact, it has already asked when it can visit Uncle A and Aunt K again. Anytime I said...... 6d

  •   ovaxposed Works with fp100c? 5d
  •   dallenp51 Yep!🏻 @ovaxposed 5d
  •   ansel_olson David, thanks! Glad to hear it arrived safe and sound! 5d
  •   ansel_olson @ovaxposed it was a lot of fun to shoot. it took a little getting used to the "half pull" between the two shots per, but after that it was pretty straightforward. 5d
  •   ansel_olson @ovaxposed also there's not really any inherent sharpness to the images of course, so I mostly went for more of a blur / bokeh approach (which you can glimpse in the top landscape image. 5d
  •   ansel_olson @ovaxposed the other prints in David's photo were shot with other cameras... 5d
  •   gumisforlovers Wowee again. Want that. 4d

dallenp51 There are days that make you happy when you check the mail. Today is one of those. Thanks, buddy! @jasononeil One more.... 4w
  •   dallenp51 Dan, are you asking me or @jasononeil? @carvadero 4w
  •   carvadero @dallenp51 everyone what do you think David? 4w
  •   ned_bunnell Print quality looks nice! 4w
  •   dallenp51 Dan, Jason has a book! It came out nice. The cover is tight and the paper is
    nice. My wife makes these from our vacation photos. You have to be careful
    with some of the images. Shutterfly doesn't seem to have the color gamut
    that Blurb and others have. So I find that some of the images print a little
    muddy. I have become accustomed to adding about 15-20% brightness to any of
    the darker images (even though they look great in prints and on the
    computer) before she orders the final product. That seems to help. We have
    quite a few of these, and for the price point, they seem be to fine.
    @carvadero 4w
  •   dallenp51 See above, Ned. @ned_bunnell 4w
  •   carvadero Thanks for the info! 4w
  •   dallenp51 Dan, with Blurb, you can build a project on your computer (no constant uploading) and send it in a PDF with a color profile when your are done. A ton of paper choices and an equal amount of templates and customizing opportunities as well. Not to mention (but I will) the ability to sell through them. @carvadero 4w

dallenp51 5 question mini interview. Tagged by@ruebx

1. Camera of Choice?
Although I have a few cameras, my first choice would always be my Olympus OM-1n. However the realities of running with a family with two children, precludes the luxury of time, to shoot film in the manner that I enjoy.
So, the camera most used would be a DSLR that is always ready to go.

2. How long have you been doing photography?
I guess, off and on since my late teens. I have never really put much effort into photography; it’s always been just an interest that came and went. Since our daughters have entered our life, I suppose that I have become a bit more diligent in the hobby. At least to the point of creating (photographic) memories for them to carry into their lives.

3. Who got you into photography.
My father was an advanced hobbyist; although not to the point of processing his own film. I really enjoyed watching his process for setting up shots. From him, I also learned how to look at a scene and really discover what drew you to consider it as an opportunity to make an image. I also came to appreciate looking through photos by others, such as museum exhibitions. It wasn’t until my wife presented me with my OM-1n as a gift when it was first released, that I gave it anymore than a passing interest. I shot fairly intensively for the first couple of years, and was actually approached by a magazine (auto racing) interested in publishing a few of my images. Just about that time, photography and I resumed our on and off relationship, until our daughters joined our lives.

4. What does photography mean to you.
It allows me to relax and withdraw from the “nonsense” that surrounds me daily. Although, the nonsense can make for some of the best moments.

5. Anything that you would like to say to new photographers.
a) Don’t forget to experiment.
b) Take your dial off the green “A”
c) Have fun!
d) Find a subject, something that actually interests you and shoot, shoot, shoot.
e) Have fun!
f) Don’t get too wrapped up in the megapixel race; it will only lead you away from developing skills.
g) Oh yeah…above all, have fun!

I am tagging @notraces @budster3 @ned_bunnell in hopes that you are interested
