A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

I'm sure this is an "old trick" for some of y'all, but being relatively new to photography I found this to be pretty freakin' cool and plan to use it.



Anybody have any other "on the cheap" tricks like this they'd like to share? I'm sure we all know and use some little tricks that, in a budget-conscious time for everyone, can help us achieve great results without having to spend too much.

Dang, i hiked up a glen on Honeoye late afternoon, set up the tripod and the main screw knob to tighten the swivel head is missing.

Anyone know if that screw head is replaceable on the Manfrotto? david
