Followups and Updates: The Eloquence of Coincidence (OT)

• Yesterday's post made me realize that I am not giving my current food experiment a decent chance. I am cheating too much, so I don't get to find out if the WFPB plan actually makes you feel better. Thanks to John Gillooly for asking the question. I really need to redouble my commitment so that I get good data on it, with my statistically insignificant but personally very significant experimental sample of one. One commenter said he eats nothing but meat and has never felt better. I should poin...

This photographer shot his own wet plate passport photos

I love seeing the wet plate experiments of Austrian photographer Markus Hofstätter. He’s so prolific with them that when he decides to do something interesting it ends up being very interesting. Lately, he’s been trying to apply wet plate techniques to types of photography you wouldn’t normally associate with the medium. He has a couple of very […] The post This photographer shot his own wet plate passport photos appeared first on DIY Photography.

Why Size Matters – Perspective and lens compression in landscapes at 400mm

Most the time when I am out doing landscape photography, I have a Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS and Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS with me. On roadtrips, I try to bring my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II – it’s a fantastic lens with great image stabilization and impressive image quality.

one from the archives: a ghost story

“Wall” (from the series “Ghosts”) by artist Tom Friedman, taken at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, September 2018. Earlier this week, my friend Jenny Lawson shared a ghost story on her Twitter account, and I was transfixed. And then I remembered that I had a ghost story of my own, that I shared almost 6 years ago here on Chookooloonks, on July 31, 2013. Inspired by Jenny, I tho...

I mentioned earlier I was going to add new bonus art for subscirbers to my email newsletter list, at the end of both Soul Jacker and The Saint’s Rise. I did it! It took ages.

Dismantling the new Canon EOS RP in this extreme teardown

I’d think most people were pleasantly surprised with the release of the EOS RP. Full-frame mirrorless cameras were getting increasingly sophisticated, which is a good thing, but they were getting increasingly expensive along the way. After all, it’s the enthusiast and prosumer crowd that wants mirrorless cameras more than anyone else. Top tier professional photographers […] The post Dismantling the new Canon EOS RP in this extreme teardown appeared first on DIY Photography.

Wednesday Open Mike: Diet Progress

[I didn't write an Open Mike—"the anything-goes, often off-topic editorial page of TOP"—last week, so I'm being indulgent with myself this week. I stuck it behind a page break in case you'd rather skip it. On that heading, it's always wise to bear in mind that not every post here is for everybody. That's how I think of blogging as I write. Sometimes the posts are for 90% of all my readers, sometimes as few as 5%, and there are posts for every percentage in between. It's all good, though, because...
