GPS Logs

In my last post, wherein I outlined how I added a link to each photo’s location on Google Maps, I mentioned that I thought I’d done a writeup on how I geo-tag photos, but couldn’t find it. After extensive searching of the archives, I can confirm that I don’t seem to actually have ever written about my process. Today, I’ll rectify that oversight. Let’s take a look at the tools I use, then I’ll walk you through how it all comes together. First, we need a way to record a GPS log. Typically,...

I like to geotag my photos. Almost every time I go on a phototrek/drive/adventure/walk, I log my locations so that I can merge my geotagged data with my photos and know exactly where each photo was taken. (I swear I thought I’d done a write-up on how I do this, but I can’t seem to find it. I have posted some of the track logs in the past however…you can see them here .) Since I have this data sitting around and it’s embedded in each photo on 75CentralPhotography.Com, I thought it would...

I was honored to host the Tyler, Texas walk of the 8th Annual Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk. We had a pretty good turn out and a lot of that success should be credited to my new friends at the East Texas Photography Meetup Group. If you didn’t join a local walk as part of the event this year, I encourage you to sign up next year. And, as always, I encourage you to find a local photography group to join and get out to make new friends and shoot photos! As I do...

Did a photowalk this morning in South Downtown Fort Worth, starting and ending at the Philip Johnson-designed Water Gardens. As is my usual practice on photowalks, I recorded a GPS log for geotagging my photos:

I did a photowalk on Saturday with the Dallas Photo Walk Meetup group (if you’re in the DFW area, come join us!) and, as my usual practice, I thought I’d share the GPS log from the walk.

We just got back from our annual trip to Las Vegas and I thought I’d share a few geotracks from my photowalks. 1. This first one is from Spring Mountain Ranch State Park on the outskirts of the Las Vegas Valley near Red Rock Canyon. 2. The next two are from my early-morning photo-gathering wanderings from our home base of Paris Las Vegas, one meandering north along the Strip and the other South.

As you may or may not know, I’ve been getting into the Micro Four-Thirds mirrorless camera format for the last year or so. It started right after I lugged around a giant gripped dSLR, a 24-105mm lens and a 100-400mm lens all over the Alaskan Panhandle. Upon returning to 75Central HQ in Dallas, I swore I’d never do that again. Impressed by mirrorless cameras, especially the work (and influence) of Giulio Sciorio over at Small Camera, Big Picture, I picked up a Lumix G6 and a couple of lenses. The G6 appealed to...

In keeping with last week’s post, here’s the GPS log from yesterday’s photowalk with our Meetup.Com group Dallas Photo Walk. We had a fairly-short walk on the SMU campus in Dallas. Unfortunately, SMU’s campus is the most architecturally-homogenous university campus I’ve ever been on. Every single building looks the same. And not in a photogenic, interesting way! That, combined with cold, overcast weather, meant that I didn’t come away with too many photos that I’d call “great”, but I will, of course, post some on the photoblog as I get to them (today’s...

Our Meetup.Com group, Dallas Photo Walk (a great photography group and if you’re in the Dallas area, we’d love to have you join), had a scavenger hunt photo walk in Downtown Plano, Texas, this morning. For the last couple of years, I’ve been trying to log my photo explorations on my iPhone so that I can geotag my photos after importing to Lightroom. I plan on writing about this process in the next few days, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share a map of today’s walk. Perhaps in the coming weeks, I’ll...
