Here We Go...

I've been doing a lot of good things over the last three weeks. I just haven't had time to journal about it...

Most of my gear was filthy after shooting the Wildlife In Focus contest. Even though I take really good care of my bodies and lenses, they took a real beating this year. I've cleaned everything I can, and will be sending a Canon 1Dx and a Canon 5DsR body back to Canon Professional Services for a thorough cleaning and inspection. They always return my gear in perfect condition. I've actually checked serial numbers to make sure they didn't send me NEW product back. 

One of the things on my to-do list is to get more active with my drone. One of the problems I've always had was the glare on my iPad screen as I flew my Phantom 3. I recently found... and ordered... a hood that should be perfect. I plan to give it a try this week and will let you know how it works.

No interest on my part to try and photograph the eclipse happening later today. I guess I don't understand why so many folks want to photograph this event. Yes... it will be cool to safely observe the eclipse. But setting everything up and trying to memorialize this escapes me. That's just me...

OK... time to get to work organizing things!
