A New Look is Coming

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

This site has had the same design for some time and along the way we’ve made some changes to our host and a few tweaks to the look and feel of the site. But changes in the underlying software that runs the site have made updates more complicated and is one of the reasons (along with the pandemic) that there have not been as many new posts as there might have been in the past.

Also the site may have not been as mobile friendly as many of you (and Google too) may have liked. To that end, today I have asked our Webmaster and lead designer, Tim Fiedler, to give the site a major update. The site will have a similar look and feel but a definitely different vine than my main photography blog and will combine some elements from the old site in an entirely new way. This will take some time and so I ask you to bear with us as the change is fully implemented.

I photographed this 1954 Jaguar XK120 in The Vehicle Vault museum in Parker, Colorado. The camera used was a Nikon D780 with VR 24-120mm f/4G lens. It was captured using the camera’s direct monochrome mode to give the image a moody and old fashioned look, befitting the classic Jaguar. Exposure was 1/160 sec at f/13 and ISO 8000.

Along with photographer Barry Staver, Joe is co-author of Better Available Light Digital Photography that’s available from Amazon for $21.87 and used copies starting at $7.00 as I write this. The Kindle price is expensive for some reason (not Barry or me.)
