Bang for the Buck

Bang for the Buck

Two years ago my Nikon D800 was brand spankin’ new. One of the first things I did out of the box was put a screen saver over the rear LCD. Why do this when the D800 came with a perfectly good (Nikon designed) clip-on LCD protector? For a number of reasons, the … Continue reading

Laptop Upgrade? Yes or No…

Laptop Upgrade? Yes or No…

by Mark Alberhasky, April 22, 2015

I’m a Mac enthusiast and for the past several years have been toting a circa 2011 13″ Macbook Air. It’s slim, fairly light (3 lbs) and the 256GB SSD is fairly peppy, driven by a 1.7 GHz i5 processor. But four years is a stretch for technology these days, especially … Continue reading

I just saw the announcement today of the latest version of Lightroom, immediately available as part of my Adobe subscription.

Things go better with…

by Mark Alberhasky, August 27, 2014

This has to be one of the strangest posts I’ve ever written for my photo blog. I’m sharing this because I’m guessing almost everyone has been here at least once: you open an important device and one of the batteries has leaked acid where acid doesn’t belong. Yuk. Nasty… and in the case … Continue reading

And now for something completely different… Hanx Writer

by Mark Alberhasky, August 17, 2014

 For those of us who write, word processors are a blessing and a necessity in this day and age. However, if you grew up in the era of the typewriter there is something quite fascinating about the mechanics of flying keys, a moving carriage loaded with moving paper and the ring … Continue reading

iPhoneography (Never Say Never)

by Mark Alberhasky, July 31, 2014

In my previous post I discussed one of the topics from a recent presentation. That same night I spoke on a topic I’ve never addressed before: iPhoneography. When I first agreed to speak on this subject my intention was to outline my workflow for preparing images taken with a camera … Continue reading

Mirrorless Choices: A Different Perspective

by Mark Alberhasky, July 27, 2014

Recently I gave a presentation, the preparation for which forced me to consolidate my own thoughts on a couple of subjects. In retrospect they proved compelling insights that I thought might be of interest to others. Here is the first topic: making a choice in the mirrorless camera niche. Arguably … Continue reading
