Photos That Changed History: Nessy!

I made another mistake today. I made the mistake of asking History Geek what was the most fascinating thing he could think of. Now, in context, I had been asking about photographs and photography techniques and since the guy can be pretty creative, I thought he’d give me something to work with. However, instead he […]

Yep. It’s Summer.

The past couple of weeks have given us a few “scorchers” up here in New Jersey. I think the only person not complaining about the heat is History Geek and that’s because he points out that he grew up not too far away from the Gulf of Mexico, spent time living out in Arizona, and […]

Photos That Changed History: Einstein Edition

After the first post in this series, I have to admit I was a bit confused on what to do next. I didn’t want to get too boring by just doing well-known photos all the time and I didn’t want to pick things that are so obscure that no one but me would know about […]

Something I Don’t Get…

I’ve tried asking History Geek about them and he just shrugs and says “People are crazywierd.” Not that I think he has much room […]

Photos That Changed History

I think I’m hanging around with History Geek too much because his fascination with the past is starting to rub off on me.

And we’re finally back on our trek through photography history. History Geek got the DeLorean patched up and is feeling up to the trip this time around. So, let’s set the time circuits for the end of World War II and look at photography as it became more prevalent and culturally entrenched, particularly in the […]

All New Sony DSC-RX100: A Pocket Camera That Packs A Punch

The fine folks over at Sony have just announced the latest addition to their Cyber-shot line up: the Sony Cyber-shot DCS-RX100. This pocket-sized camera punches in well above its weight level with a super-powerful sensor, on-the-lens controls, and all of the features you’ve come to expect from the Cyber-shot line up. Billed as the compact […]

Venutian Transit Tomorrow — Portrait Photography Today!

The “OMG Space Is Cool” club wanted me to make certain that the rest of you know about the transit tomorrow. No, I’m not talking about a bus or anything. Apparently Venus is going to pass in front of the Sun and, if you’ve still got your gear from the annular eclipse handy, you’ll be […]
