I was there the day after that storm. You shouldn't let one stupid storm prevent you from coming back.

A few people I know had planes flipped in that disaster, they went back!

....I also expect to be in the dark and musty basements of various tall shiny buildings in lower Manhattan helping the phone company with phone service restoration strategies....like I have been for doing for the last few weeks. Lots of nice consulting work to do here for the next good while.

More from Sun-n-Fun 2011. Is anyone planning on going there this year? I'm thinking about going for a few days.

I will be there the last few days. Let me know if you make it down to KLAL


I'll make sure to do that. I drove by the area where the storm wrecked planes were, it was heartbreaking to look at.

Hi Glenn. I have this little alarm that goes off around fast airplanes recently purchased by people who made big money quickly. 45 years in aviation has imprinted the cliche: "person loves aviation, person gets rich, person buys fast airplanes, person ends up in smoking hole" in my mind. There are really about six people in the WWW (whole wide world) that I'll crawl into an airplane with, call me chicken, but call me "alive". It's a rule that no amount of new and shiny tempts me to break. I've turned down rides and stick opportunities that would make you cringe over the years, and I've never regretted it. Many of the offerers are no longer this side of green.


Not a bad rule at all - how about you and I take it out then while your friend watches from the TBM?



Now there you go Glenn.......

Well done Jim, have you had the chance to shoot Crossmark's 601 Challenger?

Just read the email announcing the January 2013 issue of ISnAP. I can hardly wait to read one of the featured articles: "Tilt/Shit Blur tool" by Jay Beckman. I didn't realize that tilting s__t had any particularly salutary effects, and certainly not in the blur area.

http://www.issuu.com/isaporg

Jim gets credit for the cover (beautiful, Jim!) and I got the title page, but no photo credit. As a matter of fact, even though the letter sent to the ISAP membership soliciting contributions for the "2012 Images In Review" piece said that our names would appear next to our images, in fact no one's images are properly credited: there's just a list of contributing photographers at the top of the piece. Disappointing that an organization of photographers, for photographers, couldn't do better.

I'd better stop now or Larry will have me editing the newsletter next time.

I didn't mention where we are, specifically: the Kona coast of the Island of Hawaii. This is Hapuna Beach and our hotel, the Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel. I recommend it, the beach is one of the finest on the big island and the hotel ain't too shabby, either.

I thought Jay's article was excellent - well done Messrs. Beckman. Don't feel bad Steve, you're not the only one that is bothered by the lack of direct photo credits. Several folks inadvertently contacted me for an explanation because I'm still listed as the Social Media Coordinator - a position I've not held for a couple of months. That being said, I would absolutely vote to have you help Larry and Kevin with ISnAP

Hi Group,

The wx around these here parts has been/is rather uncooperative, read rain/wind/sleet/hail/sun/rain/wind/rain/wind/li'l sun/rain, etc etc ad nauseum. However, I thought I'd show you what it looks like SOMETIMES.

Here is Moonshine Over Alsea...



Hi bobl, Sorry I missed this a few days ago – been doing “other things”.
Anyway – nice tranquil image, and a really good balance between being light enough to show shadow detail and dark enough to look like moonlight. Not easy to do as I've discovered!

I woke up with the flu and could not get back to sleep. Decided to play with a few images to see how my NyQuil induce haze might influence my post processing. I think this particular image conveys how I feel...

ISnAP has come a long, long way in the past year or so. I can't explain the hiccups in the current release. While they shouldn't have escaped "proofing" it's another striking issue, exhibiting the talent on board the organization. We need more help so a few elements don't get missed and cause us to look less than professional.

We have a board meeting in Dallas in early February. We'll be discussing where we've been, where we're going, and how to do a better job for our membership. An organization like ISAP, especially considering the explosive membership growth we've experienced in the past year, needs more membership participation in the day to day operations. We should have four or five people working on ISnAP, not one or two, and there are a half dozen other areas that would benefit greatly from additional staff. Currently, we have three or four people carrying the weight of an organization with 350+ members, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to recognize what a stretch that is. If we could get even a dozen additional members to contribute some time and talent to the day to day operations, it would go a long way to polishing up the rough edges and moving ISAP forward.

Hi Lynn,

Yes, I shot Crossmark's jet a long time ago and have used it as a background several times since.

An exercise in frustration. I love how long lens reach lets me be able to see some of the human element in these spectacular routines, but my panning ability still isn't there yet to nail the sharpness. Combine that with a horrid gray sky, lousy light and I end up pushing shots further in post than I probably should.
