hey Folks, hope you can help Noze out here.  I've known Noze for a good long time and if she's doing something like this for a friend, you can better believe there's a real need.
 
Dear plussies, this is a post to help out a dear friend of mine +Vonnie Maddox who is in a really bad situation. I am sharing this album for download in exchange of a donation to her (be that whatever amount). It might be not much but currently it is the only thing i can do for her. If theres a photo you might like to have and is not in this album, please leave me a word and i will add.

If you prefer to send her something, she has a list on amazon with basic things that she needs.Whatever you can do for her, it will be much appreciated.

Here is a link to her list on Amazon: http://amzn.com/w/17B5T5Y4HDC6D

Donations can be sent directly to +Vonnie Maddox via paypal, to the following adress: kaleidascopeyes@gmail.com

Things started going downhill when in early November of 2014, Vonnie was in an accident that left her unable to work. She is under the care of doctors, and making the rounds with care, tests, etc., which are all time consuming and costly. Often she has to wait a month to get in to see the next doctor she has been referred to or get another test. In the meantime there are the living expenses and medical bills.

She is single and has managed to squeeze by since the accident, but is no longer able to. The bills keep piling up. The disconnection notices from utilities have started coming, and she is also at a risk for losing her medical insurance (needs to pay up 1200$ until end of july). It is desperately needed at this time especially, since she has been told that things are pointing towards surgery being the only thing that will help her get back to normal and work.

Not only has she lost her income, at risk for losing her job, but she lost her car in the accident. The money she saved for getting a new one (which wasn’t much) has been spent on necessities such as, utilities, food, health insurance, and health care.

The injuries are debilitating and the fear of not knowing how long it will take for her to heal enough to work, or what the future holds is pretty hard to deal with.

Thank you all for whatever help you can provide her, dont hesitate to share this post.

Fire Before Night
Low flat clouds and a drizzly afternoon all but spelled out a good sunset was on the way, so I headed down to Lake Apopka and waited for the sky to turn.   It did not disappoint!

Alpine Labs Radian Timelapse Review
I've been playing with Alpine Labs's Radian for a while and finally set some time to write it up.

Radian is a small single-axis motion control head programmed by your phone that lets you do pans and tilts.  

Checkout the review to see how it shakes out.

yah, i hear you +John Balboni.  I talked to the guys at Alpine Labs about it, and they're looking at addressing this;  i'm not sure where they will end up (if they'll fix it in Radian 1 or Radian 2).  

Radian 2 should be intersting.

Selling my 5DMKII! Interested?

Hey all, I'm changing up camera bodies and about to put this on eBay.  I figured I'd put this up on g+ in case a plusser was interested in upgrading.

There's nothing wrong with the camera.  It's been maintained by Canon Professional Services for the past few years and it works perfectly.  It does have signs of wear and tear (minor scratches here and there, but mechanically and optically it works perfectly fine.

I'm selling it with an extra battery, BG-E2 grip and a 16GB Sandisk Extreme IV Card. charger and cables also come with it. 

Asking $1200.  Shipping is free .

Orlando Sunset
Shot this one at sunset on July 4th (i'll post the fireworks photo soon, but it's in my photos if you're curious!) Anyhow, I had picked my "spot" for the fireworks and had already been waiting for several hours when the sunset happened - so i figured I should put the camera to good use!

Timing this was fun as there were planes going around and around dragging banners behind them.

Some technical stuff
This is a manually blended HDR created using luminosity masks on three source image files. Most of the work was done in photoshop. I used Topaz Denoise for noise reduction and did some final touches in lightroom.

Happy #monday !

Man I never get tired of waking up in the Prairie! It's my 2nd time here at Kissimmee Prairie Preserve and it's just awesome - if for the stars alone!

I've been testing out Radian motion control head and shooting the Milky Way while wondering exactly how far I really am from the coyotes calling back and forth during the night (Milky Way timelapse coming up!!)

At least there's electricity to keep the batteries charged :D.

And, as a bonus: none of the kids have been eaten by critters - though the rat snake we saw while setting up the tents gave them a good scare, hahaha.

You can't set Radian in a position and have it track a star @johnbalboni. That said, you dancing e it a start position and tell it how many degrees you want it to pan or tilt over a certain period.

Introduction
Photography & Tech
Photographer, educator, and HDR specialist based in the Orlando area;  Passionate about photography, technology and sci-fi.  

I shoot with a Canon 5DMKII.  Favorite lens right now is the  17-40 f/4L though the 24-105mm f/4L is a close second especially for its versatility

I spend my post-processing time in Photomatix, Lightroom, and Photoshop. 

I have a passion for teach and am available for one-on-one hangout or workshops.   Drop me a line if you need some help editing a particular image.

Non-Profit Work
I am passionate about serving orphans, children with special needs and children suffering from post-traumatic stress in Bethlehem (yah, where Jesus was born!) through my non-profit The Bethlehem Christmas Project (BCP).  

Every December, BCP brings together Israeli and Palestinian followers of Jesus (along with a team of internationals) to demonstrate the love of God to the children we serve by delivering clothing, educational materials, basic needs, and toys

What to expect
My style gravitates towards the surreal and I have a fascination with complex geometries.  I post images 3-6 times a week depending on my schedule and am always interacting on g+.

I love Hangouts and especially the ability to share my screen and do some post-processing.  I also love sharing what I've learned, so if you want to do a hangout or have a post-processing question, drop me a line!  

Finally, I'm a geek so you'll get a little gadget talk and geek humor from time-to-time :)
