Playing with the 50 1.4G today at work, wide open this lens looks great. I did pick up another toy…..found a really great deal on a D500 that I could not turn down. So this shot was me playing with both my new photography toys. The D500 is incredible and I am really liking it. I will write up another post specifically talking about the D500 after I have it for a while.
Today I got a new toy. I picked up a nikkor 50 1.4G used. Was running around with it on my camera and the sunset turned into a beautiful show of oranges and purples.I kept looking around for something cool to bounce this light off of and i looked up to see a plane and some clouds. This is what I came up with.
I took a time lapse of the sun going across the sky. I haven’t made made the timelapse video yet as my laptop is not wanting to cooperate so I will work on it this week and get it posted. Here is one of the images from the timelapse.
Took 6 images of a pine tree in the backyard and stitched them together. I might have gone a little overboard in PP on the sky but I still think it looks pretty good.
Today is a dreary, cold, misty day. It’s 34 degrees and overcast. I didn’t bring my D7100 with me today, I forgot to throw it in my backpack so I decided to take my Friday landscape with the Sony RX100ii. I really haven’t used this camera much since I bought it last year. Its small enough that I carry it everywhere with me, and I play with it when I think about it but to be honest I’m just not comfortable with this camera. So I spent today working on landscapes with it and I am pretty happy with the result. This image is the window view from my office. I raised the windows of course before taking this image. This is straight out of the camera, I used lightroom to export the JPG I uploaded to Flickr.
Today I broke out the extension tubes. I shot my class ring using my 35 1.8G and a 20mm extension tube.
Took this HDR using my Galaxy S7 looking north from my back porch.
This one is pretty self explanatory. I went to the airport and spent some time shooting planes. I worked on getting a nice shot framed with downtown in the picture, I am pretty happy with how this one turned out.
Playing with black and white. I was hoping for the bricks to be blurred a little bit more but I am still pretty happy with how this turned out.
Thought I would start off my 2017 project 365 with a bang. I took some long exposures of fireworks I shot off after midnight, this is straight out of the camera, I think it looks great just the way it is.
