Smithsonian Kite Festival 2008

... Annual DC Smithsonian Kite Festival on the National Mall. Guess what idiot photographer did not bring a lens longer than 17-85? Doh... pretty dumb. Was not really feeling it much after that.

Photo Books...

... these are stock pictures of the four most influential photography books i have ever read and owned.  

For down to earth no-nonsense instruction I recommend "The Digital Photography Book" Volumes 1 and 2 by Scott Kelby and "Understanding Exposer" by Bryan Peterson.

For just pure photo-zen inspiration i insist you read "The Moment It Clicks" by Joe McNally.

Artomatic 2008

... well, i did it!  I registered to exhibit some photographs at this year's Artomatic show.  If you have never seen a DC Artomatic - please come and support your local artists in all media.

Now... how to chose what to show?

CASA Blue Indoor Soccer game...

... a trip to Harrisburg, PA last weekend let to me catching this game.  This is as good as it gets with the light in the place.  I need faster glass for my birthday i think.   My learning curve in Aperture 2 led to me accidently erasing a majority of the photos (unfortunately)... AND... shooting in RAW just eats through 2GB cards.

St. Patrick's Day Parade

... The 2008 DC St. Patrick's Day Parade down Constitution Avenue.  It did not have that 'home town feel'... street too broad and the cops discouraged people from stepping off the sidewalk.  Beautiful colour though.  I am pretty pleased with the Canon 40D.
