Photo-a-Day: Year 6, Day 181 – Total Days: 2,007
Got my coffee, MacBook Air, and a copy of WordPress: the missing manual — that’s how you can tell it’s time to get to work!

- Found out how to enable nested comments on the site
- Installed a plug-in to provide a good pagination display
- Chatted with some friends
- Went to club member wine release event at Edna Valley Winery (where I took today’s photo)
- Grocery shopping at CostCo
- Ran 5K and got a personal record: 9:23 min/mile pace!
All-in-all, an excellent day!
Photo-a-Day: Year 6, Day 179 – Total Days: 2,005
Today I made sure to get in some good quality time with my new Canon 6D (see my first impressions here) by doing a nice little photowalk around the neighborhood. I ended up choosing 10 photos I liked and that I knew I’d display here, but when it came time to pick just one of them to be the official Photo of the Day, I got stuck…Read More»
So as you’ve perhaps seen, I got myself a new Canon 6D a few days ago in celebration of both my birthday and my 2,000th consecutive Photo-a-Day. (Plus, this week managed to get the extra bonus of the new website launch. What a week!)
While I haven’t had too much opportunity to do extensive shooting with it yet, I’ve at least done enough for a few quick first impressions. And note that I’ve been shooting with a Canon 50D for the past five years, so everything will be presented from the perspective of that. Here goes!Read More»
Thanks to all the hubbub and work put into getting the new www.brianjmatis.com site up and running, I haven’t had much chance to actually play around with my new Canon 6D. What a shame! At least I got to use it for yesterday and Tuesday’s photos, and today, I spent a few minutes wandering outside this evening to start getting more of a feel for it. I’ll be posting some initial impressions of it on the site very soon!
I’ll say one thing for it right now though: it’s definitely a bit of a narcissistic camera. See how it just had to do a selfie using whatever handy mirror was nearby ;-)

Woah! Glad I went with Lightroom back when I had to make the choice between it and Aperture. Kind of a shame though, Aperture was pretty cool and I like that it had a much more flexible workflow than Lightroom does. But it just ran much slower than Lightroom did on the same hardware…
Lightroom for the win! Apple discontinues Aperture and iPhoto. http://t.co/jJmCPoHVqx

Today is my birthday! So in honor of that, combined with having just recently completed my two thousandth photo of the day, I got a new camera: the Canon 6D. That’s right, now I can shoot full frame. :-D
Plus, since my 50D is still going pretty stong, I can now have two cameras at events so I don’t need to change lenses :-)
