About


November 2012

My name is Paul Lester, as the name of the blog implies. I’ve been in love with photography and all things photographic since I got my hands on a Minolta SRT-101 when I was in the 11th grade, back in 1978. I built my own darkroom, developed film, developed prints. Through the years I’ve moved to digital, but part of my heart is still with film. I still shoot and develop my own film, but no longer print, I scan.

Paul! You know, man! I’ve looked at your blog and read your posts and I just don’t get it. What’s your blog about? It seems to be about a little of everything!

Nigel, my cowoker, was right. This blog is really a slice of my life. I don’t restrict my topics to photography. Sometimes I talk about my goals, challenges, and general things about life. There’s so much going on in the world. Why not talk about it?

By day I do software development. I’m fortunate in that I have a career that I really like and it affords me a lifestyle that I can pursue my hobbies and other things that interest me.

So, thanks for stopping by. I appreciate it.

One thought on “About

  1. Just read your guide for taking basketball photos and I can’t wait to try out your suggestions. I recently took photos of my granddaughter one night and her brother the next, and while my new Nikon D7000 did its best, almost all of the shots were blurry or needed color / brightness correction. I was using the “Scenes” “Sports” setting, but I think it was too dark in the gym and also too many kids running around my grandkids (my main subject!) for that to work well. Next time I will try your suggestion to not use the auto-focus and instead set the manual focus to where I expect the action to occur. I may also try setting the shutter priority to 1/125 and letting the camera choose the ISO and aperture. I’m in the learning curve with this camera, and you have helped so much. Thank you!
