Yeah, the air underneath will still be cold in cold weather.
I figure it will get me off the earth, decreasing heat loss from that heat sink; it will decrease weight compared to a tent; and I won't have to worry about a rolled tarp underneath for rain.
Let the research commence!
Depends on your budget and what you shoot. The fixed ('prime') 50mm 1.8 or 1.4 will allow for great portraits and low-light shooting. The 18-55 zoom will serve as a good 'walk-around' lens to grab shots in most typical situations. Next up depends on what you.
I'm in that exact situation, and am...
The 1.8 is the f-stop of the lens, how 'fast' it is so to speak. The smaller that number, the wider the aperture can be held open (since it's actually f/1.8). The wider the aperture, the more narrow depth of field.
Basically, the wider the aperture, the more blur in the background of the picture.
Recently, I've decided I wanted to get into bike camping/touring. This made me reconsider any gear I had, and its room and weight.
I've always been a tent kinda guy, but apparently a lot of guys use hammocks to get off the ground. Seems extremely practical; anyone have any experience?
Yep. I've been a packrat the better part of the last 10 years. The past 6-7 months, I've been bouncing around the Gulf of Mexico, living in a different state about every day. With every damn thing I cared to own shoved in my vehicle.
I'm now selling off every damn thing I don't need on Craigslist.
Your needs can be covered by a broad spectrum of cameras.
I recently picked up a cheap Rebel XT w/ 18-55mm kit lens for ~$250 with a few accessories. Then I procured a 50mm 1.8 Canon lens for ~$100. Voila! Indoor shots, ebay shots, tequila shots, you got it all! All sorts of blurry background...
Levis 514's, have no clue how old they are. Let's say, 6-9 months of continuous wear. 2 gentle handwashes, and one time I left them outside in the rain overnight...
About to have to do some repairs, as soon as I dig the sewing machine out of storage...
My gf tells me that my black l/s shirt by J. Crew is her favorite on me. The trick is to keep everything else simple and basic. I just wear it over jeans and don't accessorize or try to pair it up with a sweater or jacket etc. And give the sleeves a good at or above the elbows artfully...
Here is just one reason I am considering carrying a weapon in certain limited circumstances..
(Not so...) Funny thing: about 2-3 weeks before you posted this, a guy was attacked by an unleashed dog in my vicinity while jogging in the afternoon. This was in a decent suburban area off a major...
