While it is not so cold now, it appears that it will be cold for the rest of this week. The cold weather and the fact that I have two major photography sessions during the end of the week will put a damper on my making other pictures for my personal use on this blog. I’ll have to wait and see what I see.
It is cold and very windy this morning, so I decided to rework an older picture from a warm spring evening and display it to help warm you up.
My most available opportunity for photography is photographing people going about their daily life and enjoying activities here at Homewood at Plum Creek. In addition, they have become my most enjoyable subjects to photograph. The problem is that many value their privacy. Since I am photographing them on private property, I try to respect their and management’s desires. This leaves me with the dilemma of what to show in my website.
This is the time of the year when I make hundreds and hundreds of images of people going through their activities. These take time and along with the colder weather diminishing my desire to walk outdoors looking for images, I have a hard time finding images for this site and thus sometimes I get a little creative with my processing.
I thought I would update those who have been following my problems with my hands. For those who haven’t, my right fingers get very cold, turn white, and then numb when I hold a heavy camera a long time and when I use my computer and the touch pad. My arthritis also causes my hands to get stiff and ache.
My latest attempt to remediate the issue has been to use the Apple mouse, but not exclusively. I switch back and forth between using the touchpad with either my left or right hand and with using the mouse. This seems to help more than anything else I have tried for using my computer, which I do a lot. Using the Fujifilm cameras and prime lenses helps considerably for when I take pictures.
