I had a little Instamatic camera when I was a teen, but it was no more than a curio. It was the hand-me-down Cosina CS-1 DSLR that I was gifted by my brother just before my 18th birthday that started my real journey in photography. I can draw a direct lineage from the CS-1 to the camera I use today.
I’m a Pentax user and a proud one. I will cover my current and previous equipment; strengths and weaknesses, and tips and tricks.
This is mostly about post processing, but also some automation and utility software. It’s all about the photos after they come off the memory card.
How, where, and why I use my camera. Here I’ll also share some of my work — sometimes to illustrate the writing, sometimes just because I like how something turned out.
When I talk about “photography” I mean my DSLR, but I also use an iPhone, and I keep throwing around ideas about shooting video and whether I will eventually ditch DSLRs for mirrorless.
