Maynard Fest 2016

2 Oct , 2016  

Mother Nature was a bit cruel (again) this year.  After month after month of cloudless weekends, we get a rainy one on the weekend of Maynard Fest.   Despite the cool damp weather, many folks came out to participate and have fun. (I think the booth selling chowder and chili made a killing.) On behalf […]

TOS – Death of Me

6 May , 2016   Video

This is the second video from the band T.O.S. and I thought it came together exceptionally well.  Frankly, when you really only have one camera that’s moving in an (essentially) live shoot, serendipity plays a big role.  I also have to give credit to Mike Rolla, who provided some great edit suggestions, particularly certain drum fills.

The Fujifilm X-T1 – On Assignment

15 Jun , 2014  

This is a summary of my experience with the biggest investment I’ve made in camera equipment in over 5 years: the Fuji X-T1.   This is not a review of the camera’s technology, image quality, etc. — there are dozens of them out there and adding another one more assessment of that isn’t of much […]
