A few days ago I posted the photo I submitted for the TWIP contest. The assignment was Yellow. No sooner do I pick one than I start seeing yellow in a bunch of other photos I’ve taken.  This is a photo of the floats of some stacked outrigger canoes.

Wild Life

Back in the spring after Leo Laporte’s TWIT LIVE show. Leo continued the video feed with Scott Bourne. Scott Bourne of This Week In Photography showed him many of the wild life photos from Scott’s royalty free photo site Avian As a matter of fact Scott recently posted on TWIP about a trip he’s taking to Alaska to photograph rare, native Coastal Brown Bears.

For those of us who can’t travel to exotic locations we have to make do with wildlife close to home

For instance this photo outside the Zippy’s Restaurant at the Koko Marina.

Camera Envy

I listened to the recent podcast from TWIP, TWIP #282. They had Joe McNally as a guest. During the conversation (about 37 minutes in) Joe is talking about a four week shoot for FEDEX in multiple countries. Joe mentions the D3’s he is using. To drive the point home one of the host (Scott Bourne) emphasizes Joe has three D3’s in his camera bag. Scott is salivating at the idea of just having one. Who can blame him. By the way Joe, I wouldn’t mind if you FEDEX me a D3 with lens please! Mahalo

The understandable camera envy of Scott reminded me of a recent post from Michael Reichmann of Luminous Landscape Cameras Matter. He responded to a post arguing that the camera doesn’t matter. If you read Michael’s post he has a link to it.

I agree with Michael and judging by Scott Bourne’s reaction I suspect he would agree also. I have a Maxxum 7D and as much as I like the camera. I have pictures that would be better qualitatively and be better asthetically with a better camera and lens. But you do learn to do the best you can with what you got. It can force you to think more creatively to maximize the abilities of your tools and yourself.

While I look forward to the day when a full frame sensor camera is within my price range. I’ll keep working on my technique and camera eye. But hey Joe got any hand-me-downs?
