Announcement: End-of-Year Fundraising Drive In Progress

Our End-Of-Year Fundraising drive is in progress. If you haven't contributed to the operation of the MMD in the last 12 months, this would be a great time to contribute. There's a PayPal link at the bottom of each page on the website.

If you aren't sure when you last contributed, please send me a note using the contact form at the bottom of this page and I'll look you up in my records.

Thank you for your generous support!
Jody

P.S. While your support is needed and appreciated, you do not need to contribute to be a subscriber. If you have subscribed and aren't receiving your Digest, please use the contact form at the bottom of the page and let me know. Thanks!

photos by Robbie Rhodes

These photos were snapped with a borrowed Nikon 950s digital camera.   Since the raw image files are not intended for use as-is, the brightness and contrast of all the images has been adjusted with an image editing program.  This is analgous to the adjustments made in the photographic darkroom when printing from low-contrast negatives.  Some images appear yellowish so I should try adjusting the color balance.  I have much to learn yet about using auxilliary lighting -- Ralph Schack's white shirt and black bowler are the very dickens to photograph together!

tiny flash built in the camera can provide.
