This CF to SD adapter does not work with the D800

I ordered this CF to SD card adapter off DealExtreme, link, it’s a type I CF adapter that can hold 2 micro SD cards. And I can confirm it does not work with the Nikon D800. It only cost me around 10 euros or so, so no harm done there. Since I found little to no information on the web regarding this subject I thought I might share this. This way it can help others in their search for a cheap CF alternative....

Karan Bhatia, a source of inspiration

As an assignment for my photography class we each had to present a photographer who inspires us. I chose not to talk about one of the grandmasters like Ansell Adams or Louis Daguerre but to pick a more contemporary subject. A while ago I discovered Karan Bhatia (nickname Sendingstache) on Instagram and instantly fell in love with his photographs. A picture by Karan B. (@sendingstache) on Aug 8, 2014 at 10:33 PDT I’m a big fan of land- and cityscapes and this guy makes cityscapes that make me drool. Een foto die is geplaatst door Karan B. (@sendingstache) on Aug 8, 2014 at 10:07 PDT In order to make a decent presentation I had to include a bit of a biography. Since I couldn’t find one I sent an email with some questions, an interview of some sort. A short 15 minutes later I already had my questions answered. This is one of the first “interviews” (if not the first) I ever did, but I got the answers I needed.   According to the website you live in LA, were you born and raised there? I was born in Santa Monica and now live in the San Fernando Valley. I’ve lived in LA for most of my life and couldn’t love it more! Would you be willing to share your age? 27. How did you get interested in photography? I bought a camera two years ago, because I’m an avid rock climber… I wanted to come back from climbing trips with more than just a few iPhone shots. After buying a DSLR I realized it was much more than just pointing and shooting,...
Water drop photography

Water drop photography

In the second year of my photography class we dig deeper into the field of flash photography. One fun way to get a better understanding of flash photography is  water drop photography. We devoted an entire lesson to it and here is the result. This is the splash back of a drop of milk hitting a basin of...

We are still continuing our routine with the Milestone Baby Cards. A while ago we discovered a sharp little white edge in our son’s mouth… Sure enough, time for another...

6 reasons not to do a 365 project

Most of you have noticed that the website has gone dead silent after the last 365 update a little over a month ago. This partially had something to do with me being engaged full time in some home and garden projects, but mostly I just didn’t have it in me anymore. I was a little bit drained creatively, and actually I still am. In the last month I’ve barely picked up my camera. The only exceptions were school and the kid. The website remained untouched, I lost interest in photography articles in my RSS feed – I just generally could not be bothered much with anything photography related. But hey, me writing this post, which can be categorized as photography related, must be a sign of my “recovery”. I don’t think I will continue the 365 project, I mean what’s the point now…? But with this load off my shoulders I suddenly have a lot more time on my hands to rejuvenate my creativity. But first things first, no beginning without an end, a conclusion to the 365 project. Well, sort of… Although I can think of more than 6 reasons to do a 365 project, here are 6 why I think you shouldn’t: To start off, extra wear and tear on your camera gear. For me personally this was not really an issue, but I can tell that the project has roughly cost me around 8000 clicks. A 365 project is time-consuming, certainly when you’re crazy enough to post a daily blog about it. I have a full time job and basically every spare time I had was invested in writing...
