I have my photography gear by the door and ready to go out shooting :D Problem is, my other hobby is interfering w/ this venture out into the nice weather, so I'm contemplating delaying that so that I can go shoot for the first time in a while!

Other hobby = tuning my Subaru STi :D

Just have to put them together. Maybe some cool time lapses?

Mind Map? Is this an App of some sort?

That was my first thought. Now that I've looked into it more I actually want to give it a try, looks like it could be handy at work

Boring day here, finished some retouching for a client shoot, and procrastinating on loading up my gear for a gig tomorrow. Wanted to try plan a shoot for this weekend but looks like it's the start of another heat wave here :/

It's a regular application. Mind maps have been around for a little while. I use them at work and I use them at home with my photography. Below are two links. One is to a Wiki page on mind maps, and the other is on the freeware tool FreeMind. I've also attached an image of one of my mind maps. It's one I used for trip planning, and am using for planning a subsequent trip.

If you like working with lists, you may love a mind map! If you don't, you won't.

I tried mapping my mind once. Nothing but dead-ends and unpaved roads. :)

Canon shipped my gear today. It will be here tomorrow, if anyone's home to sign for it!

A new bag arrived so went through the drill of fitting the rig up and transferring the accessories over. Did some hard drive digs to see what old photo's could be massaged differently in LR5 opposed to when they were simply converted and processed differently. Funny that what was done long ago can be done so much more quickly in LR these days.

Went to a nearby marsh intending to photograph Red-winged Blackbirds, Great Blue Herons, and Double-crested Cormorants, which I did. But I also got a nice unexpected opportunity with a Northern Harrier.
My primary goal at the marsh was to figure out a way to get up into the 80-foot high Cottonwood trees where the herons and cormies nest. I walked round and round the rookery, and still didn't see how I could safely get that high up into any of the trees. Been trying to figure this out for two years now, and at some point I'm going to either get 'er done or have to give up the dream of shooting the nests from eye level.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Unpacked a new backdrop and spent some time with the fabric steamer to get all the creases out; or out enough anyway. A lot of creases in 200sf!

Started shopping for a new pack to carry my extra body + flashes, updated my website, read a little bit of "Best Business Practices for Photographers", glanced through PhotoPro magazine and also looking debating on what lens I want to rent for my vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC. **also open to suggestions if anyone cares to add**

Think that's all so far :lol:

Scouted a location and played with a Polaroid SX-70. Then the mail came and I got a Flash Bar 2 for the SX-70 so I played with it again.

Very best,

Ha ha! No. I am too much of a control freak when it comes to precise composition, exact alignment of background elements in relation to the subject, exposure, subject pose, waiting 'til there's a slight gleam of catchlight in the subject's eye, etc. To get all of that stuff precisely the way I want it, I have to be looking thru a viewfinder and have the camera completely under my control.
