Focus Stacking: An Introduction

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 07:38:52 +0000

At left is a photo of a Belionota sumptuosa from Indonesia. Commonly known as a Tricolor Metallic Wood-boring Beetle. It isn’t a regular photo, though. It is a focus stacked image. Specifically, it is 276 photos combined to make a single image. When shooting macro, the depth of field — the distance in front of […]

(From Carrie) RIP Mary Heyssel Bumgarner (4-2-1926 — 12-11-2016)

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 08:18:07 +0000

This is my sister Carrie Bumgarner’s thoughts on the passing of our mother, Mary Bumgarner. She originally posted this to FaceBook and asked me to capture it here so it may last. The photo is of Mom & Dad from, if I remember correctly, 1952. It was taken in California as they journeyed West prior […]

On Death And Taxes; Some Tools to Make End-Of-Life Easier

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 02:59:49 +0000

We all face the death of our family’s older generation at some point or another. Death is inevitable. Here are some thoughts and tools that I have found to be very helpful. There are the obvious; make sure there is a will in place. Make sure the household can be maintained upon death; bills paid, […]

RIP Mary Heyssel Bumgarner (4-2-1926 — 12-11-2016)

RIP Mary Hessel Bumgarner. Born April 2nd, 1926. Died December 11th, 2016. AKA Mom. Many have asked how Mom wanted to be honored and remembered. She had three causes that she actively supported in the past years and asked that others support them as well. For straight donations, please support The Food Bank of Central […]

iOS Travel Software

We just spent a couple of weeks traveling around Ecuador.   Fantastic country, you should go! (We missed the earthquake by days. Devastating. They could use our help about now.) Of course, we had our bags of electronics.  Lighter than books and necessary for processing photos.  Entertaining, too.   And, of course, with the right […]

Review; Brinno TLC200 Pro Time Lapse Camera

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 18:26:28 +0000

Clouds Faster. One nice fallout from the smartphone revolution is that cheap embedded controllers, camera sensors, and flash memory has dropped in price while the capabilities have jumped by leaps and bounds. Unfortunately, the quality of the user experience has not seen the same revolution. After having played with time-lapse photography on my iPhone, I […]

KitchenAid Compatible All Stainless Steel Meat Grinder / Food Chopper

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 07:22:16 +0000

Unfortunately, our 20+ year old KitchenAid mixer was lost in the fire. Of course, it had to be replaced because such a mixer is a staple in any kitchen. After doing a ton of research, it was both confirmed that KitchenAid continues to be of excellent make and that one should really go with at […]

PhotoSweeper: Photo De-Duplicator for Aperture / iPhoto / Lightroom / etc.

Tue, 20 Jan 2015 07:21:47 +0000

Since I started taking photos 15 years ago, I’ve amassed a pile of images. 25,000 or so photos sourced from various cameras, phones and a handful that were scanned and imported. They have been managed manually, in various flavors of iPhoto, the occasional random application, and — for the past few years — in Aperture. […]

Over the summer, we escaped for a while to Alaska via a trip put together by International Expeditions. This was our second trip with the company — our first being a week on the Amazon River (fun story, photo set on flickr) — and it certainly won’t be our last as International Expeditions does a […]
