That makes no sense. As mentioned above it has been recommend for a long time to format in camera. I'm going on 9 years now with Sandisk and have never lost a single image.

Update for those that might be thinking of heading to Reno.

Still only 16 Unlimiteds entered. Rumors swirling that only the top 3 will get paid well with the others just getting a very small fee. Could be a large reason for such a small field.

Strega - Race engine being built by Mike Nixon and his crew at Vintage V-12's.
Voodoo - Probably start test flights this week with Hinton Jr.
Rare Bear - Flight testing being conducted at Sherman TX. Is it going on a truck to Reno, or flying?? Who knows.
232 - Rod's other Gold contender. Big Steve test flew it at Chino, it is ready. Hoot Gibson as race pilot.
Precious Metal - New Griffion race motor is being built. They need to hurry, it has to fly all the way across the country with the race motor and be on the ramp 9/7.
Dreadnought - Ready.
Czechmate - Flew this past weekend with a rebuilt wing for the first time in a few years. They say it is ready.

Lot's of noise from the big guns like Tiger and Rod that this is the last year they will be racing. This is the 50th. I have a very strong feeling that this is the last time we are ever going to see the balls out Gold racers on the course.

Well, I have my tickets all booked up and I will be happy to see whatever shows up, since it will be our first time there...


We went to the Marble Falls Drag Boat races the other day, and this seaplane circled around once or twice. I took his picture and didn't even notice the writing underneath until just now when I was looking at the pictures... Not sure whether to laugh or cry!! I think I'll cry...

Jay,

Love the Lightning photo yet seems just a bit unrealistic. Few too many bolts on one frame for me. Have you thought about overlaying 4-5 of the imagines, keeping the spread of lightning across the frame? Sometimes more is less and might add to the photo.

But a cool idea and I'll have to try it, haven't done much weather photo's without moving the tripod/settup too often.

A few months ago I attended a business gathering with a number of the country's top builders and their architects. Our table was having a lively discussion about photographers and photographing residential architecture. I listened for most of the back and forth and what I came away with was really quite amazing, given the photographic business atmosphere. The people at my table alone had the ability to add a half million dollars to any photographer's annual income, in the blink of an eye. The majority of them felt that the product they were receiving was mediocre to "acceptable". Many of them felt that they had been deceived, and subsequently burned concerning rights and future use. None of them seemed to have a comfortable relationship with the photographers they were currently using.

I listened to the discussion, scarcely able to contain the smile within. Our place holders at the table had our names and our company name on them, so most everyone knew that I was a commercial shooter. Eventually they all looked at me and collectively asked what my feelings were on the issues they had raised, and how I work with my clients. You just couldn't have orchestrated a better scenario. I answered their questions, discussed shooting styles and tried to explain the preponderance of HDR treatment that they were seeing, which most of them didn't care for, but didn't understand. The perfect conclusion to this impromptu marketing opportunity was a visual presentation on a huge flat screen, about 75% of which I had captured. That was followed by my existing clients sweeping about the same percentage of the honors being given out.

Several of the people at the table have contacted me and I am now shooting for them, but Friday the architect for the largest firm contacted me to see if we could meet early this week to discuss building a relationship. They have thirty projects across the country that are finished, awaiting photography, and about the same number in various stages of completion that will need to be photographed.

What stuns me about this scenario is that some photographer literally gave this client away. I've said it before, no one can "take" a client from you, give them away by not building a relationship with them, turning them into an adversary over silly rights debates, or producing an inferior product. There is a lot of discouraging challenges facing people who aspire to be professional photographers (and who need to produce incomes that afford them a reasonable lifestyle), and they need to be viewed realistically before the decision is made to launch out on that course. Unfortunately, in good conscience, one cannot paint a rosy picture of today's photographic market, to the people who sincerely ask "how can I go about this?" A sliver of hope and good news to those asking that question is, surprisingly, if you keep your eyes peeled, there are established photographers whose game plan appears to be giving their clients to someone with a better plan, a bigger passion, a better product. They are there for the taking, and we should be overjoyed to oblige.

That's because it is Salzburg. Actually, it's a digital representation of a two-dimensional mapping of one aspect of Salzburg at a particular moment in the past...he said, helpfully.

I picked up a great book the other day, it's a National Geographic publication (see, no hard feelings). It's about three inches thick and the NG shooter who ran the project did a wonderful job of describing this thing we have such a passion for. The majority of the book is photographs, but the text is absolutely captivating. The title is "Simply Beautiful Photographs".

The imagery is wonderful, oddly not anywhere near as sharp as we shoot, which is kind of interesting, but it doesn't detract from the book's impact. I got lost in the text when I flipped it open in B&N and couldn't put it down, so I bought it. Lot's of quotes from those who have gone before us. Things like "To consult the laws of composition before making a photograph is like consulting the laws of gravity before one heads out for a walk"....... Edward Weston It's the kind of book you read over and over and find something new in it each time.
