Erie Cemetery Photos, Part 2

A couple weekends ago, I took another trip to the Erie Cemetery. I spent the better part of 2 hours there and snapped a couple hundred pictures, but left with well over half the cemetery to explore. I’ll probably go back for round three soon! I’m enjoying the exploration.

Erie Cemetery Photos

I couldn’t wait any longer — I knew it was only a matter of time before I would make the Panasonic GH3 mine. I’ve been shooting on GH1’s, and had never upgraded to the GH2. I’ve already done a couple video shoots with it, and it’s absolutely amazing.

I needed an excuse to shoot some photos with it. I threw on the 20mm pancake lens and went for a bike ride to a place I’ve wanted to visit for a long time — the Erie Cemetery. It’s strange, because everyone has laughed at me when I told them I was … Read the rest

Big Ol’ Yellow Spider

My wife and I were sitting outside this evening with our son. She pointed to the corner of the porch, and remarked how disgusting the spider was there. I took a closer look, and had to grab the camera. What a beautiful creature! I’m shocked my wife hasn’t squashed it yet.

The Rolling Shutter Effect

The rolling shutter effect — universally despised by videographers. In newer cameras using CMOS sensors, the image is scanned from top to bottom every frame. This means that very fast motion, or events that occur extremely quickly (such as camera flashes) will appear distorted. Camera flashes may only take up a part of the frame; straight lines may appear “jiggly” when moving quickly; the image may be skewed.

Videographers routinely complain about this phenomenon, as it can make for some pretty strange-looking video. ┬áThere’s really no way to get around it — that’s just the nature of using a sensor … Read the rest
