Just wanted to post an update on my current project blog. So far it has been about 5 weeks and I have been able to post one article every week. Its pretty fun so far and can't wait till it catches on a little more. You can check it out at the links below I will link all the articles to date.

If anyone has suggestions for topics or something they want to see feel free to let me know and I'd be happy to try to write a post about it. Remember these are my opinions and thoughts/experience with these subjects. Writing like this is new to me so over time I will improve and bring you even more awesome content.

Bad weather...or is it??

So again I have a day off where I wanted to go out and shoot. I got all my gear charged, prepped, and set to go then I do something stupid. I look up the weather. It said that today was going to be a wet day raining in the morning till afternoon. Stupid me believing that put away my gear and decided to sleep in a little since I wasn't feeling al that well anyway. I wake up and guess what! NO RAIN! Now it says its going to come later in the day. So I again wasted a day to go out and shoot.

So here is a question for you all. What weather app or service do you use to predict whether you are going out to shoot or not and how accurate is it?

So I guess since I wasted most of the day I might as well work on some videos I need to edit for my YouTube Channel lol.

Nikon D5200 Time-Lapse Test Decision

I just got my Nikon D5200 back from a friend that was borrowing it. I decided to take it out and shoot some time-lapse to see what the quality was like. I am trying to decide if I want to make this my time-lapse work horse to keep the shutter actuations down on my D800.

Take a look and let me know what you think. Thumbs Up to keep going with the D5200 or Thumbs Down to go with the D800. If you want to see a time-lapse from the D800 to compare let me know in the comments below.

Review of Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens

This is my first attempt at a gear review. I recently bought a Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens to replace my Nikon 55-300 DX lens.
I bought it due to upgrading to a Nikon D800 FX camera. The DX lens works on it but the results are not as good on that type of body.
So this is a real world testing of the Tamron lens. I have some pictures in the video but here is a link to them on my website so you can see them better due to YouTube compressing them in the video.

I like the lens so far and its a good "upgrade" from the DX lens if your on a budget. So until I get the money for a better lens this will do for me. I paid under $150 for the lens which I didn't think was to bad. You can check it out here
