Seattle Pictures

I've posted photos on my site from my recent trip to Seattle and Mt. Rainier National Park, in Washington state. Seattle is an awesome city with nice summer weather and beautiful views. I'm not sure how I would feel about being there for the long, wet, gray winter, though... Here are a few selections:

Holy Cow - Canon 5D Mark II !!!

Well, Canon finally announced the long awaited and much anticipated 5D Mark II Digital SLR. This camera has some fantastic new features that make me foam at the mouth..

Here's a short list:
  • 21.1 MP Full Frame CMOS Sensor
  • 1080p HD Video!
  • Digic IV processor
  • 14-bit A/D
  • 3.9 fps continuous shooting
  • Improved weather sealing
  • 3" 920,000 dot high resolution LCD
  • 50-25600 ISO (w/ expansion enabled)
  • Live View with face detection
  • Higher capacity battery
  • AF micro-adjustment for up to 20 lenses
  • Sensor dust reduction
  • the list goes on....
All this and more for a palatable price of $2700! The camera should be available for purchase sometime in November. DPReview.com has posted a preview of the camera here.

Also recently announced was the Canon EOS 50D Digital SLR, which I'm somewhat disappointed came out just 12 months after the release of the EOS 40D, which I purchased. While I'm very happy with the 40D's performance, it is somewhat aggravating that many of the features introduced in the 50D should have been included in the 40D.

Photoshelter is Dead

It's a sad day indeed today, Photoshelter announced that it's closing it's Collection website. I've been a contributor since the beginning, and was really hoping that their positive attitude and unique focus on photographers would last. Alas, they couldn't compete in the current market and are rolling over dead. What to do, what to do...

Back from Utah

Well folks, it's been a few weeks since I've posted anything, been a little busy with the new dog. I also traveled to Moab, Utah with some friends to do some mountain biking, off-roading, photographing, and general relaxing. A complete set of photos from the trip can be found here: http://photos.3scape.net/sec/59. Here are a few selections:

Ozzy

Nope, not Ozzy Osbourne, or Survivor Ozzy... This post is about our new dog - a 1 year old Lab/Shepherd mix that my wife and I adopted this weekend. We've been thinking about a dog for a while now, and other things such as travel and general life craziness kept putting it off. So, we finally decided to jump in and do it already. We found Ozzy at Almost Home Foundation, a local animal rescue that often takes dogs out of "high kill" shelters. Ozzy came from one of those shelters in Kentucky, and would have been put to sleep within a week. So, the adventure begins!

New Widget!

Hey all.. I'm experimenting with more interactivity in my website. Today I put together a slideshow widget that shows the last 10 Photos of the Day from http://photos.3scape.net. This widget can be shared and added to other blogs or websites, so you'll have a constantly updating personal slideshow! The widget allows you to pause, and move forward and back. Clicking on any image takes you to the full size image on my site. Enjoy!

A Bug's World

Sometimes we need to stop and look at the little things that are all around us, rather than just rushing through life without a clue. Life tends to fly by so fast. As summer approaches, I have to remind myself to get out and enjoy it... Take a bike ride, walk through the woods, look at the little things as well as the grand vistas - whether rural or urban. This summer my goal is to really get out an shoot more - take in the city scenes that are all around me, and get out into the open for a different view. Hopefully I'll be posting some enjoyable photos from these excursions. Here's one for to get the summer (finally) started.

Welcome!


I just created an account on here, to share my favorite photos and show recently available stock photography on my site, as well as the stock sites that I'm affiliated with.

First, a brief introduction. My name is Adam Romanowicz, I'm a photographer in the Chicago area. I've been shooting since about 1999, mostly documenting my adventures and travels. My images have been available as prints and stock on my website (3scape Photos)for several years, but I recently also joined a few stock houses for additional opportunities. My images are available through photoshelter.com, myloupe.com, and alamy.com. I also occasionally have fine art prints showing in local galleries.

Stay tuned, I'm excited to join the blogging world (somewhat late). As a starter, here is a photo to get some color on this squeaky clean blog!
