  • Digital City

    Digital City

    This hi-tech city may exist on the motherboard of a computer, in a future time, or perhaps somewhere on another world. And, what is that orange sphere? In consideration of such mysteries, reasonable advice may include visiting my shops at Redbubble, Pixels, Society 6, ArtPal and Tee Public. Thanks!


  • Macro Shots

    Welcome to my first experiment using a mirrorless camera with an inexpensive Canon-FD-Lens-Mount-to-Nikon-Z-Camera-Mount adapter.

    I always wanted to try my old lenses, formerly paired with a Canon AE-1, on a new camera. However, with lenses made by different companies, I’d (wrongly) assumed that each would require a unique adapter.

    In fact, only the lens mount fitting matters. So, with this series of photographs, I’m using a Vivitar Series 1 90mm f/2.5 Macro lens made by Tokina.

    I’ve also applied a scaled-back version of my usual post-processing routine to these photographs, shot as RAW files, using Affinity Photo.

    Notes

    Because this is a dumb adapter, both autofocus and changes to aperture are no longer available in-camera and must be made manually.

    In order for my camera to retain IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization), information such as lens number, focal length and maximum aperture, had to be assigned in the Set Up Menu as Non-CPU lens data. I also assigned a Function Button to use as a shortcut.

    Without autofocus, I’ve found it helpful to use Focus Peaking, which superimposes a selected color to highlight areas in focus. Depending on the primary color present in any given scene, one may assign a contrasting color for improved visibility.

  • A Clip of Comedy

    A Clip of Comedy

    Regarding lawn care, homeowners commonly experience procrastination. And that’s understandable, after all, as hours on the weekend represent more valuable time. By the same token, it’s also true that most people are happier with the appearance of well cared for yards.

    So, I’ve come up with a nifty solution for this dilemma by inventing a new product, which combines the technology of a metal detector with a weed whipper. This way, I can keep my lawn looking good and at the same time make some spare change on the side!

  • Space Debris

    Space Debris

    During the early years of space exploration, astronauts were privileged to enjoy a wide open cosmos of brilliant stars, planets and satellites. That was then. Unfortunately, such travel in modern times has become quite hazardous, as abandoned debris set adrift in space poses serious concerns for safety.

    Yet, an idea which shows great promise as a remedy has been advanced recently by a Baby Boomer working for NASA, seeking to rekindle the technology developed in 1961 by Wile E. Coyote, Super Genius.

    Well, maybe not. Nevertheless, you can enjoy my digital depiction of junk in space on a wide variety of cool products – prints, apparel, mugs, device cases, home decor, etc. – when you visit the following galleries:

  • Planetary Reflections

    When I woke up early this morning, to my great surprise, I observed that Planet Saturn had somehow been relocated inside of my computer, reflecting on the motherboard and featuring a vibrant green coloration?! I thought to myself – this can’t be…I must be imagining things – and so, I closed my eyes and went back to sleep.

    Later, I discovered that my computer was working as expected, and that the only evidence of this surreal scene could be found in the following shops, on a variety of cool merchandise…
