The Roving Photographer

Flashes and funny cycles

I completed my first major photo shoot of the new year on Sunday, a day-long engagement with a group of incredibly talented models and stylists for a local magazine.  Actual photos from the day will have to wait until after the publication date, which is sometime in late February, but will definitely appear as soon […]


An ugly box

Got this in the mail the other day and liked it so much that I snapped a photo of it.  Yes, on my phone.  Fair warning (if you haven’t already guessed) that this isn’t going to be a photo post; we’re talking paddling for a moment. The Ugly Box, courtesy of Austin Kayak, is one […]


Kayak Updates

Kayak season is once again over; the leaves are down, the temperatures are down with them, and we’ve already had a dusting of snow.  Pretty soon the lakes will freeze over and I’ll be walking across them where only a few months before I was paddling. My ‘yaks are stored in the garage for the […]


Gear, Gear, Gear

I’ve seen a couple of announcements on the web in the past week or so stating that the OM-D E-M5 is finally going out of production.  I don’t find this surprising, as it’s now an older model camera that was superseded by the E-M1 a while ago; at the time I thought it was interesting […]


Notes on current lenses

I’ve been paying attention to which lenses I’ve been using the past couple of months, since I started shooting regularly again.  And no real surprise, it comes down to just one: the Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 (which for those of you worried about relative focal lengths, is the m4:3 version of the venerable 70-200mm).  I’ve been […]


A few quick thoughts on the new OM-D E-M1

This is hardly new news, but I wanted to share a few quick thoughts on the newly announced Olympus OM-D E-M1. The short version is: I won’t be buying one. So there, if that’s all you were wondering, you can move on to the next post. If you’re looking for a few more details, however, […]


If I could only use one lens…

…it’d be the Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4.  Of course statements like that are kind of stupid, since no one lens is going to be perfect in every single situation and a 25mm wouldn’t be all too helpful when, say, trying to photograph eagles up on the Plank next winter.  But as a general feeling it […]


The Goldilocks Dilemma

A couple of weeks back I caved and ordered a new photo bag. The problem was that my little Domke F-10 was just a little too small – perfect for one body and 1-2 extra lenses, but nothing more. And my canvas messenger bag and BBP insert was a little too big – great for […]


Adobe’s Creative Cloud

The news about Adobe’s new Creative Cloud model is pretty much common knowledge now; there’s been plenty of posts about it on other sites. Some of those just reiterate the Adobe PR release and others take a personal stance. If you haven’t read much about this yet, I’ve linked to the highlights after the break. […]


A new ship

The search – and research – is finally over and I’m the proud owner of a brand new kayak! I came home earlier this week with a Wilderness Systems Ride 115 and have already gotten everything ready so that I can take it out over the weekend. Turns out the Ride wasn’t even one of […]
