MY FUJIFILM X-T1 CAMERA SETTINGS (V4.0)

By David Aronson | 2014-09-29

Recently one of my readers emailed me asking what my camera settings were and why. That sounded like a good article to write, so here are my Fujifilm X-T1’s camera settings.

DARK ALLEY – NICE, FRANCE

By David Aronson | 2014-09-23

3 CAMERA ISSUES TO CONSIDER

By David Aronson | 2012-04-18

Cameras today are needlessly complicated. It seems like it is a war between brands to produce the next big model that adds just a few more bells and whistles than the last model, or the competition’s new model for that matter.

TRAVELING GUITAR BLUES

By David Aronson | 2012-03-07

The video above makes my case of why you should never check a guitar. Although it is a humorous music video, sadly it is also a true story that so often repeats itself on a daily basis.

By David Aronson | 2011-04-06

KAPOW kids were arrested! Who will post bail? What on earth would get a student arrested from Pembroke Pines FSU Charter Elementary School?!
