my favorite pieces of photographic equipment. Those were items that I'd recommend to a friend without any reservation. Of course, I'm not in love with all of my gear. There are some items that I must use frequently, but curse them all the while. While these pieces may work well enough for some, they don't meet my ever-increasing standards, and I'll be replacing them soon.

DIY light tent that I made from a plastic storage tub and some printer paper. This time, I demonstrate that the smaller the subject is, the simpler the lighting gets. In this case, the subject is the SD memory card that I bent in two a few days ago.

Today brought the first significant snow of the season to Lincoln. There wasn't a lot -- only about an inch -- but it was enough to turn everything pretty. As luck would have it, this is Saturday, so I was home & available to spend some time outside enjoying it with my camera. It was even relatively warm and calm, which made shooting rather enjoyable despite the continuing precipitation. Read on for a few pointers on cold weather photography.
