For 2010 I wish you all whatever you deserve. That goes for individuals, countries, religious groups, corporations, you name it. If you were good, treated others with respect, may good come to you. If you were a bully, may someone stand up to you and break your face. So yeah, here's to KARMA. Happy New Year.

scanning contact sheets, backed up as hell

for the past couple of months I was totally consumed by a commercial gig I worked on, that I couldn't really do my own stuff ... so now I'm trying to catch up, scanning contact sheets, and I have to say that it sucks - the only good thing about it is finding some random shots of my daughter

lame kid actor

I've been planning to write this for a while .... so, two weeks ago, we decided to go to the movies, to see THE ROAD (last time we saw a movie in the theater was more then two years ago, before Maya was Born, we went to see THE DEPARTED). The book, by Cormack McCarthy, was AMAZING, Viggo Mortensen is a good actor, so why not. BUT, we had no clue they casted A MOUSE to play his son. Yep, whiny little kid who was obviously casted cause he looks like Charlize Theron, who plays his mother, Viggo's wife.
In the book, you get the impression that the kid is maybe 6-8 years old, but in the movie he is probably around 12, but acts like he is 3! annoying annoying annoying. very distracting.
Aside from that ----->
Viggo was great, cinematography amazing - colors, depth of field, all really really good .....
also, the ending in the books is much better. So my advice is - read the book.

camera watch

go get it

happy holidays!

back in the day, this was my favorite website and I just re-discovered it ... see, there are great things outside of the realm of photography!

I think everyone should have a gun so when someone tries to break into your house you give him HELL...

A 911 call captured a deadly chain of events in the Midwest.

A woman was forced to take drastic action when a deranged man tried to break into her home.

This is the 911 call Donna Jackson made after midnight as this man, Billy Riley, tried to break into her rural Oklahoma home.

join the national guard and try to save an empire in free fall

they play this in theaters across the US before movies. But movies now cost $12.50, I don't think people who can afford to go are the ones actually being recruited ...

going digital?

well I would but only if you get me this camera ... it's one of the first digital cameras, from 1991. Based on Nikon F3 body, memory and screen are in a separate unit (not part of the camera), that you have to carry around with you ...

thinkTank AIRPORT TakeOff rolling bag RULES

I've been trying to find a good travel photo bag for a long time, and whatever I came across was never quite right. I needed something with wheels, cause my camera bags tend to get heavy, I carry a lot of equipment, loads of film etc. But I also wanted to be able to carry it in a more convenient way, as a backpack for example ...

Well, my friends from THINK TANK PHOTO solved the problem --- I just got the
and it's perfect. It's a state of the art, heavy duty rolling carry-on bag, and has concealable backpack straps that are very easy to deploy. It can hold everything I need when I travel, couple of camera bodies, a bunch of lenses, laptop, film, you name it. You can take it on both domestic and international flights as a carry-on bag.
