    Adventures in High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography

    I'm just starting to give this a try, got my first one yesterday evening. Our horse in front of the smoke of a nearby fire (High Park fire) close to sunset. Far from perfect, but I am quite happy with it. Anyone else dabbled with the technique at all? If so, please share! Like focus...

    Kyle's attempts at arthropod photography

    'kay, so be warned: I'm absolutely horrible with arthropod photography, so I'm starting to try and work on that. I think I really need an external flash, but the onboard one with a DIY diffuser seems to work decently. Also experimenting with lens stacking, but that's difficult given most...

    U. warburgii

    Since this is blooming for me now, it's easily my favorite of the weeds that have bloomed for me. What a gorgeous plant.

    Adventures in Lens Stacking

    Cross-posted from my main picture thread. So I bought a Canon nifty fifty (Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II) and decided why not get a 58mm - 52mm reversing ring as well to try out some extreme macro photography. Man, am I impressed. The nifty fifty is a legendary lens because it has incredible glass for...

    Kyle's Carnivorous Basement Adventures [Picture HEAVY]

    Well, with the new GH in the basement, I figure it's time to start a new thread. Things are a changin'. ;p So to kick this thread off, I experimented with my new extension tubes. Kind of a PITA to get used to, but I really like them now, haha. So let's get this party started! Click any image...

    Premium Android Apps for $0.10

    Google is celebrating 10 billion app market downloads by having ten premium apps on sale for ten cents for ten days. Ten cents. A dime. Some of these apps are great. SoundHound is pretty amazing, and Swiftkey X is my keyboard of choice and has been for a while. It's also pretty amazing. I...

    Email Notifications: Broken?

    Anyone else not getting their email notifications? I know it's not my email, 'cause I'm receiving fine from other sources... ...BOSSSSSSS!!! :D EDIT: Nevermind, they got flagged as spam... huh. No idea why. Silly Gmail. >.<

    Adventures in Focus Stacking

    My first attempts at focus stacking. Turned out alright, I think. I'm getting to be very suspicious that my monitor is horridly calibrated. I fear things that look perfectly exposed to me look far underexposed to y'all. Let me know. >.>;; Oh, and ignore the uglies around some of the edges...

    Peacock Jumping Spider Courtship

    I was going to put this in the random picture/video thread, but I think it deserves its own. THIS. This is why I don't squash spiders. Such beautiful, complex little lives they live. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/9GgAbyYDFeg" frameborder="0"...

    Drosera capensis "Red" and 'Albino' Timelapse

    The ant got away... bah... Also, I screwed up the image resizing, so definition may not be stellar. I think I might be starting to get the hang of this, though. Time to get better software than Windows Movie Maker. A number of things went wrong with this one, so I'm not proud of it, but oh...

    Yet another RO unit thread

    So I'm about to buy myself an RO unit (Whee!) and I'd like some input. Poking around the net, it seems reefers tend to highly recommend SpectraPure, so that's the brand I'm looking at. I am also planning on getting one with a DI cartridge so that when the day comes I finally set up a saltwater...

    Drosera capensis "Red" in Action

    I feel guilty about cross-posting these from my Carnivorous Adventures thread, but meh. I figure it makes sense. My first ever attempt at time-lapse photography. I was bummed the plant didn't finish wrapping around the fly, but it's all good. Next time. This is the first of many, I'm sure...

    Trap Sealing Timelapse

    I feel guilty about cross-posting these from my Carnivorous Adventures thread, but meh. I figure it makes sense. Not terribly exciting, but it pretty much accomplished what it set out to do: show the sealing mechanism of the good ol' flytrap. <iframe title="YouTube video player" width="640"...
