The Fourth of July has long been one of my favorite holidays, even though I frequently do absolutely nothing special. I get all misty over the stars and stripes and love celebrating our national birthday even it's a private and quiet celebration at home. For those who plan to attend a display this year, I ran across this article on photographing fireworks. By next year, we will be all settled in Bear Valley and they have a wonderful big, old fashioned Fourth celebration, parade and all. I will put these tips to good use, I hope. Here's the link.

Michael Tapes says we all shoot RAW. If you feel like quibbling, check out this very short video at his site. I have already admitted that I drank the Kool-Aid a long time ago and am completely committed. I would never go back to shooting jpeg, even though I understand the reluctance to add to the processing workload and the suspicion that it’s a waste of time and pixels (I was there for a little while myself). I found the video interesting. Again, the video is only a few minutes long. If you have strong feelings one way or the other, it's not likely to change your mind, but check it out.
