Except for a broken Canon Powershot, I've never discarded or sold any camera I've ever owned.  Is there a support group for people like me?

(l to r, Canon 7D, Pentax K100D, Canon A590 Powershot, Pentax ME-Super, Pentax K-1000, Panasonic PalmCam, Epson PhotoPC.  Photo taken with Apple iPhone, in case you're wondering.)

Art Direction Win!

Now there's a future I can get behind!

The Business End

Finally got off my ass and wrestled with the new camera. The User's Guide made my eyes glaze over every time I attempted it... ideally, sitting down with some 7D DPs I know would help me assimilate some work-flow know-how, but I don't have the time for that. And why risk pissing them off by appearing to become their competition? Really, guys, on any movie I Direct, I do NOT want to double as Director of Photography.

Found a few good reviews and walk-throughs on YouTube; those, on top of those times I was actually paying attention to my DP friends, should get me started on the road to proficiency. Another way will be to take a working vacation, bringing enough of the gear to make my own short and get some on-the-job self-training.

As I've been asked to DP for 1219 Studios' Tucson Terrorfest entry this summer, why not go home beforehand to PA and shoot "Hooftytown Horror?" My Bro-in-Law, the BinkerDad, is a big horror flick aficionado, so I'll certainly consult him -- and probably put him in front of the camera since I don't know any actors in Hooftytown.

Also have some ideas to get the Binker herself involved... this should be fun.
