Something that has been an interesting topic and one that I'd like to give a try is, creating Time Lapse videos. And who better to talk to, then Nikonian, Dennis Owens (DennisOwens).

So, who is Dennis, and how did all this all come together? Let's take a look, at an exclusive interview and find out more :) Read more...

Vision Quest Cards

Josh Larkin (tonupbandit) on January 7, 2013

A few Sundays ago the both I and mother nature were under the weather. It had been raining straight for weeks. Autumn had reared the ugly side of its head and brought cold temps. All the leaves had dropped, ushering in what we in Vermont refer to as "stick season," when all of the hills are drab brown. Needless to say, I was having a tough time finding anything I felt excited about shooting. Read more...

Traveling Tips - Washington, USA

Josh Larkin (tonupbandit) on November 30, 2012

First off, I'm not a travel photographer. I don't have the resources to travel to exotic places for extended periods of time just to make photos. Second off, when I do wind up visiting some place new, it's typically for a visit with family or a non-photography, work-related event. Either way, time is often limited when I travel. That was the case last week when my wife and I flew 2,699 miles across the U.S. to Washington to visit with family. Read more...

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp) on July 12, 2011

I was a 16 years old high school student, busy in warm hearted camaraderie and doing much photography, inevitably responding to challenges for street fist fighting, obtaining good grades just for the self-pride of it and scheming how to get the girl I deeply, madly, irretrievably loved, to kiss me.

Nikonos V Review - Underwater photography

J. Ramon Palacios (jrp) on September 10, 2010

Underwater photography is as fascinating or more than land or aerial photography. The 'painting with light' concept is by far more evident underwater than above the surface. Besides, to enter into a submerged new world, hidden, increases emotions with that of discovery. Although it may look at first as something very complicated, I will attempt here to convey it is not that difficult and very exciting. Read more...

Greenland - Traveling with the Nikon D70

Bjorn Olin (essingen) on June 12, 2006

I spent seven long years of my life commuting between Sweden and America. I frequently passed through Copenhagen, and during one layover at this ultra-modern airport, I spotted an old, haggard jet on a deserted patch of runway, far away from the glamor and comfort of my terminal. It was the Air Greenland flagship. At this moment, the idea of a Greenland trip was born. Read more...
