“Durr! Where have you been the past couple months!”–I can hear some of my followers asking already. First off, despite some more ‘fun’ with my terrible knees, I am in fact not dead. Second, I have been quite alive and busy in February and March, though not just in the usual photographic sense you may expect! Continue Reading
Only 5 short months ago, I started matthewdurrphotography.com. In that time I have posted 60 entries, focusing on my ever-growing list of lens reviews, photography walks, and multiple sports shootouts with my manual-focus gear. I never could have imagined my site would get 50,000 unique views, 200 likes on my posts, and 50 followers in such a small time-frame. All the support from this online community makes me feel what I have isn’t “just another photography blog”, which is the one label I have been trying to avoid from the get-go. I must definitely give all my readers a big “THANK YOU” for sticking it through with me and keeping up to date on all my happenings with photography. You all are the best. Period.
As of late I’m still working on the 36-72mm Series-E review, so I don’t really have too many pictures to post. What I DO have is a small time-lapse video I made back in March of this year (before I started the website) that I have been waiting to share until a time like this. This video is my first (and so far, only) time-lapse, taken with a Nikon d300 of two converging storm fronts; as such, I made a few rookie mistakes like over-exposing a tad, and allowing my anti-rain device (umbrella) to get into the frame a little bit. I greatly want to do more of these, but due to the size and weight of the camera, I rarely have the drive to just take it out and shoot. I have been what feels like lobbying Sony for a while now to get a simple firmware feature like this added into their NEX cameras, but no luck yet. Oh well. Without further adieu, below is the embedded video. Sit back and relax (preferably with headphones and in Fullscreen 720p HD if your connection allows):
Have a great day guys and gals, and please, stay as awesome as you already are. 😀
