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...

Book Cover Photo

I recently had an opportunity to make a photo for the cover of an upcoming book that I revised for Jones & Barlett Publishing. The customer needed a photo that would fit within a set cover template for the series, but the photos they had showed poor technique. With the help of my wife and son, who served as hand models for the shoot, I was able to quickly grab the shot and license it to the publisher for this book.

Here is the final cover image.

This image, and others, are available for licensing at our website. I hope to add many others to these in the coming months. 

The book may be ordered for advanced purchase here.
