Photography In The Old West - Arizona Ghostriders

I have been a follower of the YouTube channel Arizona Ghostriders for a while now.  The content is always entertaining , thoroughly researched and informative.  As a photographer I am interested in knowing how photographs were taken in the old west so I submitted a comment with my question to Santee, the YouTube creator of the channel.  He finally answered my question in the video below.

Brandywine Bay Tortola British Virgin Islands

Brandywine Bay - located on the southern coast of Tortola, by the main road. It's a beautiful beach but not normally used by residents and locals. I never swam here before - too close to the main road for my liking. Almost every morning the goats you see in the video will walk over to the beach and enjoy the environment!!!

How To Upload Photos To Instagram From Computer

Many times when I take awesome photos with my Canon EOS M100 camera, I am excited to share on Instagram but the task could be a little tedious.  First I have to download the photos on to my computer then copy the ones I want to upload to Instagram, to my cell phone.

In this post I will show you how to upload photos from your computer to Instagram πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Š

First please note that Google Chrome must be installed on your computer for this tip to work.  When that has been done open up your Instagram page, right click on any blank area on the page. 
Select the 'Inspect' option which is the last option of the set.

The screen will split into two.  The right side will look like Greek to you.  To the top, select the icon that look like a cell phone.  This option is the Toggle Device Toolbar

Refresh page and the left side you will now see the options like you will see on your phone.  

Select the upload option and proceed like you would in your cell phone.  Good luck!!!😊

NOTE:  I notice that I am unable to select more than one photo for a post.

Tortola Pier Park Park, Road Town, Tortola British Virgin Islands

Tortola Pier Park is located on Administration Drive after the Administration Complex, Wickhams Cay 1, Road Town Tortola British Virgin Islands.

I have had the honor to see the Tortola Pier Park constructed to what it is today.  When passengers get off the ships and approached the pier park, some are greeted by representatives of various companies that they may have made arrangements with for different events on the island.  

Some of the passengers who are undecided on what they are going to do, would get information at the BVI tourist board booth.  Other passengers venture out of the Tortola Pier Park and walk around the town, Road Town, on their own.  Others, take up the services of the taxi drivers, who normally position themselves at the entrance of the Tortola Pier Park, for islands tours.

How To Set Self Timer Option On Canon EOS M100 Camera

So in this blog post I am going to demonstrate how to set up the self timer option on your Canon EOS M100 camera so you can take your own photoshootπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Turn on your camera and click on the menu option click on option 6.  Here you will find the following options: 
  • Drive Mode
  • Self Timer 
  • Keep Setting 

Select the self timer.  Under this option there are four sub options, the first being the OFF option.  The second option give you 10 seconds - allowing you time to position yourself in front of the camera - before taking a shot.  The third option gives you two seconds before taking a shot.  The last and fourth option gives you ten seconds before taking three conservative shots.

Select your desired option and press lightly on the shutter button and the camera will begin to beep.  While this is happening you can 'strike' your favorite pose and the camera will take a photo after the seconds passed based on the option you chose.

With this camera and its flip up screen, this self timer feature is great to take some really awesome selfies.

Canon EOS M100 - Memory Card Error

In latest latest trip to Trinidad and Tobago my home country, I was about to capture some footage and realized that I was unable to take any photos or videos.  My camera was coming on but I just could not take out any videos or photos.  When i got home I thoroughly checked my camera and still had the same problem.  I became very concerned.

When I put on the camera the message I got was MEMORY CARD ERROR which implied that something was wrong with the memory card.  I looked at the card closely and realized that the tip of the card was broken and might have gotten stuck in the memory card compartment which is quite small and I was unable to see if anything was stuck in it.

I decided to purchased a new memory card while I was in Trinidad and to my surprise it did not work in the camera.  There were times, the damaged card worked and times it did not work - I was able to take out photos.  I looked online to see if I could find videos with information that could help me but I did not find anything that helped.

My next step was to take my camera to one of my local store that sells camera accessories to see if they could help me.  To make a short story long I ended up buying another memory card which worked great in my camera.  I am so happy I was becoming very concerned about my Canon EOS M100 Camera.

Time Lapse Footage Creating 2019 Vision Board

Check out this cool time lapse that I recorded with my Canon EOS M100 camera πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ“Έ
What is time lapse?
Its a technique of taking a sequence of frames at set intervals to record changes that take place slowly over time. When the frames are shown at normal speed the action seems much faster.
