I have known Steve Huff (virtually) for many years, and have written a couple of articles for his website. He is always so gracious in letting just about anyone write a guest post. It’s a win/win thing, I guess. He gets to share many different views and experiences of his readers with his readers, and we get some extra exposure for our own work in return. Like I said, a win/win for all involved.

So, a few days ago, Steve posted my article I wrote about the Nikonos 15mm lens (underwater lens) used with the Sony A7R and Nauticam Housing. Have a look…

I took a trip to Myanmar (Burma) a couple of years ago. I told my travel agent I wanted to avoid the tourist areas and go off the beaten path. That is exactly what I did. I headed to the small town of Mrauk U, which is near the border of Bangladesh. They call it the “mini-Bagan”. It was amazing, but a difficult place to reach. You could count the number of tourists on your hands…we counted only 8, and only saw them in our hotel.

It was a fantastic trip, but I didn’t get to see the famous areas of Bagan, Inle Lake or Mandalay. So, this trip, I will hit the tourist spots. There was an earth quake a few months ago, and many of the temples in Bagan were damaged. It will be interesting to see how they have coped, and what kind of repairs will be made.

I leave on the 2nd of January for a week….can’t wait.

Here are a couple of my favorite photos from the last trip to Myanmar…

Airports are really cool these days. They never used to look like this, right? The airports in Asia are really pieces of Art, and this one in Paris is right up there with the best…Charles De Gaulle Airport…If you’re ever bored waiting for your flight, take out your camera and get some shots…

I have said this a few times before, but I have almost as much fun processing my photos in Photoshop than I do actually taking photos! I have kind of fallen off of the “HDR” bandwagon, but from time to time, I like to play around with it. I especially like the way colours “pop” when different layers of exposure are combined…and I do like the “painterly” feel…especially when printed on canvas. In any case, here is a cool “before/after” rendition of a photo I took today in a Kampung close to where I work…

The BEFORE shot (straight out of the camera)

And here is the AFTER shot….I used Lightroom, Aurora, and Photoshop to create this final image…
