Tech 
Windows 10 

This is important to know. 

If you log in with a local account (ie not a web account) to windows and you log into anything in windows with your web account (like installing Word for 365) Windows 10 will Change WITHOUT any notification  your log in password and Credentials that means you will log in next and suddenly your password is different and you'll have no idea why.  

That is scary.. It means there is a mechanism in Windows 10 that will allow your Log in and Administrator Accounts to be altered without any notification.

So in February I bought an old Minolta x-700 with a 50mm lens. The first two rolls of film through it were damaged by me being an idiot, having figured out the error I figured all should be good, and it is.  To test it though I went shooting last Monday when I was in the city. 

You ever have one of those moments when you see someone and just think that is such a cool scene? I had this with this fellow. After taking this shot (stupidly thinking I had colour film because I specifically asked for colour) I ran into him later in the day at this little random Cafe. along the drive behind there is a old shed and this VW style camper van, back door open, this guy sitting in the back playing guitar. tree buds all over.

The colours and everything was just perfect I could see the shot in my head. I had my NX1 with me, and everything I needed to make it perfect.... I did nothing with it. My shy nature got the better of me and I didn't want to bother him. I'm kicking my self a bit for it.

Still this isn't horrible.. would have been better in colour.

So the other day I hung out with my father in Fort Erie. Snapped a quick shot of the midreef lighthouse to play with in snapseed during some down time.

Need Help

Capture Pro 8
Hot Folder 

Ok so I'm trying to use Hot Folders in Capture One (a program I have no experience with) I have loaded Remote Studio (Samsung) and the files import fine. However I took 25 test photos 2 of those photos (in the middle of shooting) have ended up being adjustable and well not super low rez and blurry. 

I don't understand what I'm supposed to do to make this program load a file from a folder and be able to edit it. I can import the files just fine. Hot Folder though just gives me a useless image I can't do anything with. +Phase One or anyone know how to fix this? 

It works so much better than Lightroom in that the file appear in about 5 seconds opposed to 8-11 but if it doesn't actually appear big or can't be adjusted it is completely useless. I'm sure I'm missing something.

Part of the lag is actually the Camera app, it take 4 seconds from shutter click to in the app. Samsung sadly makes a mess of nearly everything they do the first time out. It is the first application they have ever made like this.

It loads into C1 almost instantly but just as a low Rez place holder (like a thumbnail enlarged) the actual work able file takes 4-6 more seconds to load.

Again it could be user error, but I can't figure that out for sure as there is no decent support or help options.

I know some people swear by it.

A JPG shows up right away no fuss no muss. As my previous work around to this was an Eye Fi Card which was fairly hit and miss, this works much better. Worse case I just keep shooting RAW + JPEG and only letting the JPG transfer

Just a FYI several web browsers have pushed updated that have blocked the use of Flash.. that means if you have a flash website people won't be able to access it. 

So you may want to update... and get rid of that horrible auto play music.. no one likes it but you ;) 
Heads up: if you have a photography website powered by Adobe Flash, you should make plans now to switch to something other than Flash. Flash-based photo si

So yesterday I went into the City to meet up with Lena and Mantej. It was a good day. One of the things I wanted to do was test out my old Minolta which I've been having issues with. Turns out it was used error, the first roll I didn't load it right and it resulted in the release not working, and the second time I had forgotten the Release exists. Apparently if you load the film right and press the release you can roll the film back very easily :)

So now... need me some 70s era Minolta Lens' :D 


Before I got the camera which Lena had borrowed I took a few really quick shots at University and Dundas at noon hour. This is the only one worth showing. 

I will say, as an aside, at the end of the day I not so stupid for not taking pictures of the Guitar Player I took photos off in Kensington. Turns out Lena, Mantej and I ended up at a Cafe he was at.. It was the most hipster image ever I saw it so clearly.. I had everything I needed if Only I was so shy (ie social anxiety) It would have been a glorious portrait.

It'll be stuck in my head now, but it's definitely a piece of my childhood.

Story
Tagline
It's about the emotion of the moment.
Introduction
I am a Niagara Falls, Ontario based hobbyist photographer. Having lived all across Ontario growing up, I have seen an amazingly wide cross section of city and landscapes as well as a whole cast of characters from all walks of life. This has lead me to focus on capturing moments and places that can hold meaning or tell a story, both Urban and Rural. 

I work in the Financial Industry with a big five bank for my day job, and am passionate about technology, history, and culture. Of late I have been enjoying organizing and participating in photowalks through my connections on Google+. 

When I'm not photographing I'm usually reading about history, Wikipedia, or researching one thing or another. I also tend to Hike or Walk a fair bit. I spent my formative years in the Niagara Region and recently moved back after nearly a decade away. 

Bragging rights
Moved 33 times, trying to slow that down. Been bitten by a Python, a few dogs, twice by a cat, at least one fish, and a frog.. I'm tasty.
