Des Paroz: On The Go
The desparoz On The Go blog was first setup several years back - around 2002. It is a place for me to write about my personal views on a range of topics – personal productivity, presenting, photography, technology and whatever else catches my mind.
There are two parts to the Des Paroz On The Go blog:
- Des Paroz On The Go: Topical posts on personal productivity, presentations and photography workflows
- Around the Web link posts that link to another site or blog post, with a short comment from me. The original posts are worth a look.
Des Paroz On The Go is hosted on Squarespace. The Around the Web link blog uses Pinboard. The latest five links are in the sidebar of the main blog, and these posts are also posted to App.net and Twitter.
Photo Gear Info
I get some questions regarding my photographic gear. Here’s what I am currently using:
- Nikon D200 camera
- 12-24mm, 10.5mm fisheye, 35mm, 18-200mm and 60mm macro lenses from Nikkor
- Aquatica AD200 housing
- Inon Z220 & Z240 strobes
- Ultralight arms
- iPhone 4S
For post processing, I use Apple Aperture 3.5 and Pixelmator. I use the excellent MarineLife Keywords product to help with my keywording workflow in Aperture.
