Focus

One thing I really like about my LX3 is the manual focusing. There is a “focus” button on top to do an auto-focus over-ride which can help make manual focusing faster. But what is even better is an on screen DoF scale. The focus range changes with aperture and focal length to make hyperfocal focusing quick and easy.

Looking Back

I always go back and forth on reprocessing old photos I have taken; time spent revisiting old work is time spent not making something new. However, how many times have you looked back through old photos and discovered something you previously overlooked? Looking back also reminds me of things I tried that didn’t work out, but also things that turned out better than I thought they would.

Or in this case, I can apply what I know about processing now to a photo I really like, but never liked the way it was presented. I don’t spend a lot time going through old photos, but maybe I should.

Clarity

It is hard to stay focused in a consumer oriented world. This week I struggled a lot with wanting things I do not have, so I had to remind myself that it’s okay not to have those things. Especially if it has to do with technology, which will likely be out dated in six months. The best way to clear your mind: use what you do have.
