I told you today would bring something different. It is literally amazing the opportunities for photo field trips that are out there. Sometimes you have to be willing to move on short notice. I knew nothing of this show, the 41st Annual Gem, Jewelry and Mineral Show, until my daughter came home from school and told me she could get extra credit for going in her Earth Science class. I quickly volunteered. The only problem is I needed to take a notebook so I could write down the names of the rocks and minerals I was shooting. Note for next year!
On a side note. Teresa has sent her camera off for repair. She has a damaged pixel which was leaving a bright orange spot on her pictures. Has anyone else had this problem? I am a little disappointed in the quality of my Nikon gear. She has had this problem and I have some difficulty with my 18-200mm VR lens. What has been your experience? The warranties really don't stand up too well either.
I hope everyone has a great week. Remember there are "field trip" possibilities everywhere! Just be willing to go, quickly!
