Keith has just returned from his trip to Cuba and the link below is to has fantastic images. One thing that strikes me, and I have made note of this before. Go anywhere else outside the western world and their is an explosion of color. Step off a plane in Europe or the USA and things look flat, monotone, lacking in color. Just an observation. Keith has truly captured a lot of the Cuban culture.

I came across this today thanks to a B&H news letter. I thought that many of you might find this an interesting set of products to look at. Click on the products menu and take a look through. We are not affiliated with Tether in anyway nor have I tried their products but they look interesting.

Great Article on how to use a hand held meter. Usually the main thing that prevents the exacting photographer from carrying a hand held meter is the lack of knowledge on how to really use it.
Why carry a hand held meter? Sometimes the built in metering systems of your camera just don’t and can’t get it right in ambient light and when it comes to flash – forget the automated flash systems with their multiple flashes. The only way to get light ratios right is with a great flash meter. You can get two meters in one from the best. SEKONIC

I have one of these and it is nothing short of incredible. I have been using it for macro work and even the it is almost heavy, it is great in the field for the most solid platform for getting low to the ground.
While the Hi Hat never has an issue in performing, I usually have a couple of friends with me to get me off the low part of the ground after I get great shots with the Hi Hat.

Every spring the tree in my front yard slowly comes to life. Sometimes it is earlier than everything else and sometimes it is late. But every spring since I have been here it awakens with tiny little buds all along the branches. These buds at some point explode into beautiful pink floral arrangements. Eventually they fall off in the rain and winds of spring and the tree becomes full and beautiful in its next its next transition of dark purple leaves.
I produced a pretty big box of images to look at and when you are looking at 50 or so images of pretty much the same subject, getting to a final result can be very demanding. I have uploaded 15 images of my favorite tree parts and would like your pick of the images you like and why you like them. Your input is important not only for me but for you as well.
