Blog: Photo of the Day
Well, in anticipation of my 5000th visitor, I've decided to add a new feature to the Junk Chest, the Photo of the Day on the right sidebar. Unless otherwise indicated, all photos will be mine, and will represent my attempt to pick out the best of my photography from a variety of subjects. I'm primarily an event photographer, thanks to my professional wedding photography background, so many of these photos will be from things like parades and renaissance fairs. While I'm sure that an occasional family photo or vacation photo will sneak in, my intention is to mostly stay away from that sort of thing and concentrate more on photos that might be of general interest. Feedback, as always, is welcome.
Right now, almost all photos are taken with my beloved Canon Digital Rebel, for which I have a variety of lenses. Since I am not usually working in a professional capacity, most of the really snazzy event shots are taken with my 300mm zoom lens, since, lacking the aegis of authority, I can't get in really close to the action with a shorter lens.
Update: People that come to this entry directly, such as from my yahoo 360 page's feed, won't see the picture thumbnail on the sidebar unless they go to the main page of my blog, where today's image is shown. To help with this, I have added text links to item page sidebars. For people who are catching up, here are the 1st, 3rd and 4th photos.
