The New Manual DSLR Project

Hi, and welcome to my blog. The Manual DSLR Project was started March 30, 2010 with the intent of devoting one year to learning how to use my Nikon D300 in manual mode. I invited you to join me as I took this journey. You celebrated with me as my fingers began to remember which wheel adjusts the shutter speed and which controls the aperture settings. I was brutally honest in sharing my mistakes.

A year passed quickly...and I achieved my goal of demystifying the manual operation of my camera.

While the Manual DSLR Project was intended to be bound by time (one year), I am eager to keep the conversation going. So look for additional posts on anything related to photography. And interact. Let me know if you are reading the blog and find it useful.

All the best...

Lensbaby Pics in the Snow

Okay, so I've been snowed in since Monday and there are only so many ways you can organize your sock drawer...But, I'm not griping. We have plenty of food, water, electricity, heat, etc. Much better than the blizzard of '93. So much better. No complaints. It's all good.

Yes, it's Wednesday and the roads are not yet clear. I just got a text that the college where I work is closed again tomorrow. So I have had a good deal of time to do things around the house. I found a rather large piece of plastic in our workshop today and we "sledded" down a slight hill in our yard. Here's the problem. There's not much of a hill in our yard. Oh well. It just made us more creative. I did post videos on my Smugmug site. I must warn you though. They are not very interesting. Mostly just a little sad. I'm fairly certain we would rock if we had an adequate hill. The one of me is after I got bored with jumping on the plastic with my knees so I tried to do it standing up...surfing style. How do you think that went...

Speaking of creative, I also had time today to go outside with my Lensbaby and take a couple of shots. Since the look I was going after was to break a few rules, I added some effects in Lightroom. I know that this is not a style that everyone likes, but I kind of like them. Hope you enjoy...

In the meantime, let it snow...(It is again, by the way). Imagine what would happen if we got a real snow like the Northeast is getting. We would all just go to the Caribbean for the winter. Sounds like a plan to me.

On another note I've added a new domain name: that points to this blog.
