I haven't been updating this blog much recently and part of the reason is that I've taken on a new challenge: I'm now writing my own weekly newsletter for Pro Photo Daily called Pro Photo Daily Street Test. Each week I'll be testing and reviewing a new piece of pro or prosumer photo gear and sharing with you my thoughts and images. The first edition was just released last week and I had the chance to use and review the very fine Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 HSM OS Macro lens. You can sign up to get the newsletter (free) in your email once a week--and we won't clutter up your mailbox with lots of junk. I'm being encouraged by the publisher (which is why I agree do to this!) to be my old funny, whimsical and irreverent self--and to talk about music (my other passion) as much as I like...whenever I can find a way to weave it into the news (which is easy for me, trust me). It's going to be a fun newsletter to produce, but it's going to keep me out in the field a lot shooting and at the computer late nights writing. I hope you'll give it a look. Please sign up--it's free!
