    Yeah BS was fun. Even more fun was practicing with my new camera.

    Light was shitty and so were my shots. But this is a whole new game and while I have a lot to learn, I'm super stoked on the process.

    What camera did you get? Ski photos are tough as hell.


    Friend is trying to convince me to sign up for FWQ 3* at Big Sky in March. Fuck. Nervous just thinking about it.

    Nikon D500. This camera is sick.

    And yeah, snow can be tricky but there are a lot of tools the camera has to help. Metering, histograms, etc. I just need to better understand how to use them and get comfortable with the camera.

    I will get it figured out.

    Oh and that's bad ass that you are even considering entering.

    Was thankful that the report only said 2in this morning. Kept the crowds neutered most of the day, leaving plenty of fresh to go around.

    That is a dope camera! So many things can be done in post editing too. Stoked to see what ya get!

    In other camera related news, bobbybilly broke the on/off switch off the BB camera. No big deal, u just have to use a little screw or your key to move that little ring under the mode ring. Faaaaaawwwwwkkkkkk!

    I've always enjoyed ski photography but my old dslr was a kit model and while ok for most stuff it just not fast enough for skiing. So I hardly ever took it out and would just use my iphone.

    But now that I'm in the game I'm almost more stoked about ski photography right now than skiing. Kind of obsessing over it actually.

    I do need to invest in a lens or two so will be starting to research. If anyone has recs I'm all ears. 18mm-300mm? Look at several?

    Also, what editing program do you guys use? Should I just buy photoshop or is there something better?

    I am the wrong person to answer any of these questions as I have trouble downloading photos from my Kodak Instamatic, But I would contact Ski Fish Bum. SFB takes some great ski photos with his camera.

    Ya, best camera really is the one that is easy enough to use quick and comfortably.

    That 18-300 looks like a great versatile lens. Seems like it might be awfully long for everyday ski shooting if you're not planning on posting up with a radio and ppl are sending big lines. But I think working with one lens is the way to go so if it's relatively compact, u should get it.


    We use the Adobe suite, but open source or cheaper options pretty much do the same thing. If you arent looking to go balls deep, you probably dont need to spend that much money.

    We use the lowepro top loader bag and it's awesome. Carrys multiple ways, had nice padding, and a couple extra pockets. Having a camera in a backpack makes shooting that much slower. I've found I dont stop as much if it's in the backpack.

    Enough camera talk. Here's a couple pics from hanging Tony's plaque and a good B Gulley from mid November.

    Tables look good at BB.

    I have to be in Billings this afternoon for work but might sneak out for a couple of runs and to practice with my camera.

    Look for me. I'll be the gaper holding a camera mid-slope next to BobbyBil or Tele.

    Went with the Sigma 18-300mm. It was on sale at the local camera shop.

    Still trying to figure out my carrying situation. Might go with a rear entry bag specific for cameras. Atlas makes a killer bag but they are spendy.

    1) I'm all for the quality and value of the higher end Tamron lenses. Love my 70-200 2.8 full frame. But it's a beast. The DX version might be lighter and less conspicuous, which would be nice. Lately, I've been considering picking up a high-end point and shoot that'll fit in a pocket, figuring I'd take more pictures that way.

    2) Lightroom all the way. Keep an eye out for discounts on Lightroom gift cards (I think the only Adobe gift cards... includes Photoshop too). Sometimes you can get a year subscription for pretty cheap. BH sometimes has them on sale.

    Only could ski for an hour before responsibility got in the way. Wished I could've stayed longer. But the three runs I got were pretty fun with 8" of blower.

    Also felt way more comfortable with the camera today.

    Getting back into the swing of things, and always pleasantly reminded of how talented the skiers are here in Montana, and how great the terrain is.

    Just spent 6 weeks in Japan, and so happy to be back to the land of pucker.

    From BB yesterday

    No 8 inches of blower at BS today, but some fresh snow made a great day on the hill with no lines other than the tram and sunshine at times. Wanker Wednesday should be great.

    Wanker Wednesday kicks off with a 6:30 driveway report: 1/64 inch of blower pow, -10F, no wind. Crystal clear skies, so bluebird once the sun comes up (?).

    9:30 meetup, top of Ram8.

    Spouses welcome, I will be rolling with The Girl Who Lives Next Door To Yeahman’s Dad.
