Silver Lake Dunes, Michigan

Silver Lake Dunes, Michigan

  When I think of sand dunes, I envision either the Sahara Desert or areas near oceans. The state of Michigan definitely did not come to mind until a friend suggested a trip to the Silver Lake area. Even after looking at photos online, I was not expecting to see such magnificent views. With 3.2 miles of dunes open for exploration, hydration and continous leg-stretching were keys to enduring this…

NX300: Hybrid Autofocus

  NX300 is one of very few compact cameras on the market that provide great autofocus–one of the best in its class.  Digital cameras have two types of autofocus methods: phase detection and contrast detection.

Contrast detection can work better…

NX300: A Lesson on Digital ISO

    NX300 | 1/160 | f/5.6 | ISO 200 | 40mm While ISO has been typically known as being synonymous with “film speed,” or a film’s degree of sensitivity to light, the same principle can also be applied to digital cameras. In the digital world, ISO refers not to the sensitivity of film, but rather the sensitivity of the camera’s mechanical sensors. Typical ISO ratings are 100, 200, 400,…

Getting Playful with the NX300

Getting Playful with the NX300

I recently spent a Saturday with a friend of mine and our canine companions Bob and Harp at the Han River Park. As a Seoulite, a stroll to this local riverside park on a Saturday afternoon is pretty run-of-the-mill stuff (nonetheless gorgeous). But with our enthusiastic companions, everything we did became exponentially more buoyant and fun. And as the sun set, the NX300 was there to document the subtle changes…

NX300: Visit to Piatt Castle

The Piatt Castles, two historic mansions on the U.S. Register of National Historic Places, were built and owned by the Piatt family in Northern Ohio nearly 150 years ago.

Smithmeyer in true Gothic style, reminiscent of architecture during…
