Back in Action after a Hiatus

Posted on February 18, 2013 at 5:46pm 1 Comment

Due to some security issues on nearly losing my identity and a significant sum of money, I removed nearly every trace of myself from the 'net for nearly two months while I checked my accounts and settled all security breaches.  I am now back and ready to contribute to this amazing site again.  Hopefully no more issues from here on out...

Hello Paul! So I am curious about your Sony expierence. I just had to take my alpha 65 to,the repair shop for a cleaning and now I have to send it back to the manufacturer to,have it completely refurbished. I found out that some of the photography community are anti Sony b/c they feel as though Sony is trying to,improve on a system that was already great. I have to have my Sony back without a doubt but until that is finished I have been shooting with a Nikon d3500 and I hate it to be honest. After using the sonys lalpha line I feel like the others are, much more difficult to get a handle on. Please let me know What you think. I truly think sonys translucent lens and upcoming technology is the way to go.

Thanks for the note Paul...  watermarks and digitally imbedding a watermark is especially important if you're publishing / sending large files that can be copied (stolen) but I don't understand why some people insist on putting watermarks on small image files..  again, you stated because you can..  and I can't disagree with that..

It was my first go at photographing the Pelicans, the boat was just a bonus. I guess it's. More exciting the first time out.

Hi Paul,

If you have a chance some-time soon, I HIGHLY recommend going to L&D 14 this week to photograph pelicans. There were hundreds of them there today, it was an amazing sight! Notice the tug? Yep, it says Muscatine!

Thanks Paul, I thought they might be eagles but someone I know labeled them as hawks in one of their own pictures on fb. Since I was unsure, I went with hawks. I appreciate the correction!!

thanks for your friend request Paul,

Hello and welcome back to picture social and 'art of photography' as well. But why did you leave? and for what security reasons?
