I had an ephinany this evening :) ……….. I realise why I centre my horizon. My original plan was to crop images depending on while I liked better sky or what ever the other half was, but never actually did it, until recently when I started doing the 16:9 crop over the out of camera format. Only took 10 yrs to figure that out ……..

Also, it is a natural reaction to centre your view in the viewfinder.

Took me 10 yrs to realise I could change ISO from pic to pic!

It has been about 9 years since I built this PC and it is time to upgrade it. Looking for suggestions...

Required for photo processing using PS, general internet stuff & email and a little bit of video.

I also have a QNAP NAS here that has been robbed of disc's over time and needs a set of four if anyone knows of some specials going.....

Nice shot of the lake, looks a van club gathering, or a random chance meeting of tradies?

I recently rebuilt my computer, if you want something that will do another 10 years then $2-3,000 is a good price point.
If have a budget in mind I'm happy to put together something for you.

a question for Tony, have you ever thought of shooting film.

While digital is way more flexible with the end result. because there is a limitation with the number of frames per film, perhaps it will teach you something you can't learn with digital.

Such as taking time to seeing the photo before taking the photo and then not knowing you have got it until it gets processed.


Something like this, I have got one and it's a very nice camera to use. Like most canon cameras it fits well in hand and has a nice sound to it

I learned a lot shooting along side someone at Pukekohe during the V8 Supercars, he was shooting a 1Ds, having recently upgraded from a medium format hassy shooting 6X4 film and he started off with a large format box camera, shooting rally cars in the forest.
He was very conservative with his shots, but also very into what was going on, very observant and deeply knowledgeable about his subject, so he knew what was going to happen before it happened, so knew when it was worth taking a photo.
I listened and learned, and adapted a lot of that thinking to my own, and have learned to take less photos with a much high number of worthwhile ones.

I've got a 2TB sitting on my desk you can have, came out of my NAS.

Yep, Delica meeting, just to test them out. Went well, didn't need to use my winch. Practice run for Pouto Lighthouse latter in the year.

As far as the PC goes, I don't really know which way to go? totally new build or just maybe a couple of SSD's and up my ram, USB3 is still not a big thing, running an old i5, with 8g of RAM, I thing the spinning disc's are my main issue.

I'll get 4 same size 2TB or larger, reasonably cheap these days I think.
