dry box on the cheap, and more...

It's been a while since I posted new content. I've added a new tutorial/DIY project on dry boxes. Those of you in Asia have a plethora of options to choose from. North American photographers seem to get the short end of that stick. However, with a little bit of ingenuity I managed to piece together a very nice and decently sized dry box that doesn't break the bank. Some photographers on various forums say such storage solutions are overkill--however, I've yet to meet a photographer who was happy to have mold growing on their lens because it's been sitting in storage for so long. Just because you don't live in an area that isn't humid, doesn't mean you won't run into moisture problems. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this DIY project. It is, as far as I can tell, the cheapest way to own a dry box that's highly usable on this side of the world.

I'm still working on my macro-techniques write-up, but due to family life, work, and school, I haven't really touched it much since the summer. All I can say is look for it in the spring when the flowers start to come out, as that's when the bees start to frequent their haunts. 

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas, and may your new year be filled with wonderful pictures.

Till my next rambling, or post, or review, this is, hey, hey,
