A few quick notes

    • CrashPlan- an excellent backup system/solution is offering a free year.  Enter your email and the price for 1 computer for one year drops to $0, even at $50/year it is an excellent value and painless way to backup your precious photos/documents.  Do not wait until you have a horror story to start backing up. https://www.crashplan.com/carboniteswitcher/

 

    • My T5i Unboxing went up this weekend, You will hear me say this in the review- I think we will all be a bit happier if we think of the entry level DSLR market like the auto industry, every year there is a refresh of the product line and sometimes it is exciting with real changes and sometimes it is a polish with minor changes. This is one of those fairly minor changes.  I will have more thoughts in my review in a few days.   Take a few moments and watch the video and give it a thumbs up please.  I also have some sample video showing the silent and smooth focusing of the new 18-55 STM, not lots different from the 18-135 STM.

 

    • I spent the weekend shooting with the T5i and creating a video review of a brand new video monopod from Berno that will be part of my upcoming giveaway.  This giveaway that I have been mentioning for what feels like MONTHS now will start THIS WEEK! All the stuff  has arrived- I will be photographing, listing and putting this all together in the next few days, it is so exciting to be able to give away awesome gear.    You all taking the time to like my Facebook page, Subscribing to my Youtube Channel and visiting the website have made it possible. Thank you!

 

    • Last bit of housekeeping – Facebook has recently changed the admin system for pages, it now is more difficult to keep track of comments, if you leave a comment or questions on a post and I haven’t answered it in a day or two please send me a message or post directly on the wall. I try to answer everyone’s questions or comments that need a response so it is only because I missed yours that I haven’t answered yet and I welcome a reminder or a nudge that you are waiting.

 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
 "Such a blunder sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bring the thunder" * The Jefferson Memorial might be my favorite. Jefferson's quotes inside, the circular structure surrounded by the columns, the fact that it is perched on a more organic, curving body of water. There is much to love here! Inside I chose to go wide with the 12mm Laowa to capture that awesome dome and offer a different perspective. * Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and @venuslaowa #12mm f/2.8 lens
 Up early and rewarded with another fantastic sunrise. The colors were brief but beautiful. There were literally thousands of photographers lined up along the tidal basin. The reflections were beautiful but those can be captured anytime of the year, it was important to include some of the blossoms. *  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and #Canon 24-70 lens
