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...

Happy 2015!

How time flies when you are having fun! 2014 has come and gone without any activity on the Manual DSLR site. Even so, people are still reading the articles. For that, I am appreciative.

My resolution for this year is to revive The Manual DSLR site by posting at least one photography article per month. I've been quite busy with writing projects of late, and haven't taken the time to post anything about photography projects.

At the very least I should have posted some photos from trips taken in 2014, which included:
  • St. Pete Beach, Florida
  • Dallas, Texas
  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • Lubbock, Texas
  • Chincoteague Island, Virginia
  • Baltimore, Maryland
  • Rehoboth Beach, Maryland
  • Portland, Maine
  • Saint Theophile, Canada
  • and others
See if you can match the iPhone snapshots below with the locations listed above. Some locations are not represented by photos. Answers will follow in a few days. 

This was the view from our hotel window. In what city will you find this iconic tower?
This was taken just after we took off from a dusty, windy city. Guess which one.
Which beach is this one?
This was taken during the golden hour at one of our destinations. Which one?
Where will you find this section of the Berlin wall?
Harvey's anyone? In what city was this taken?
This is the most exciting view I had on this business trip. I also came home with the flu.
So make your guesses in the comments section and watch this site to see if you are correct. Until later, then...
