  1. Re: Solar eclipse on August 21 - photography ideas?

    Left Salem about a half hour after the eclipse at 11am driving south down US99W instead of I5 that I expected was what the majority of visitors going south would use. Anyone planning to leave...
  2. Re: Solar eclipse on August 21 - photography ideas?

    How did it go cp_photo? Where did you end up?

    Capturing the eclipse was going to be difficult enough with a digital camera due to the huge dynamic range. I left my film view camera at home. ...

  15. Re: Death Valley wildflowers rising in major bloom

    Agreed about color gamut film/sensor limitations in nature of course and that goes beyond rock. A important task for photographers is to find light for difficult subjects that can render within the...
