The purpose of this blog is to discuss and document the things I learn about EOS photography. I have used Canon cameras since 1985, when I got my first Canon AE-1. I didn't know for about 3 years that I could set my lens to A and get aperture priority! (I was 12 at the time and bought the camera in Hong Kong, didn't get a manual I could read, and my third party Tokina lens didn't actually have the 'A', but a circle.)
Nowadays, I am using a digital camera, the Canon 20D. I won't go into detail about my other equipment, except to say that I have been experimenting heavily with off camera flash within the Canon wireless system. I've learned lots from the ubiquitous Strobist website, as well as many others.
I intend to post tips and tricks that I have learned, as well as before and after shots for stuff I learn along the way. Not really intending this to become something many read, but if I can save someone from having to learn the hard way, it will be worth doing. At the same time, it is a place to put all the things I figure out for myself to refer back to. I suspect I will be surprised to look back in a few years and see what I was doing.
Sometimes writing something down is another way to cement the lesson learned.
