What I am Doing Now (17 June 2022)

Once again, I’m changing the post format. πŸ˜… Really can’t make up my mind. No more blogging, just occasional “photography life” updates only.

So, recently I’m thinking about making my gear smaller, e.g. shooting with a smaller camera and possibly with a single lens only.

      Yes it has been a while, I realized I’ve been through 3 FF bodies and I think 3 APSC bodies in the time you’ve owned one πŸ˜‚ I guess you’re content with upgrading PC too then? Yes it’s a hassle having to remove the head and take it apart to make it fit!

      Haha, that’s a lot! In the meantime, I’ll use my work PC to open RAW and convert to DNG, then edit on my old MacBook Pro. πŸ˜…
