DragonflyFound this dragonfly on my daily jog around my home. Taken with the Sony A7rii and SEL90M28g lens. At ISO400, f6.3 and 1/125s.
As you can probably guess by my previous posts I generally don't photograph people very often but I usually do at photo conference that I've attended for the last 8 years. Two cool things happen. All the big camera manufacturers are there with their gear that you can borrow free of charge and the conference has models that you can photograph. Well this year they brought in a few Cos Players and they were a blast to photograph. Both photos I'm posting were taken with a borrowed Nikon D850 with the incredible Nikkor 105mm f1.4 lens shot at f1.4. What a sharp lens.
As I mentioned in the other post this was taken with a borrowed Nikon D850 and the incredible Nikkor 105mm f1.4 lens shot at f1.4. I wish I had more time to play with this combo. Backgrounds just melt away to nothing.
I wanted to explore portraits with a wide angle lens. Especially since I picked up a 14mm for vacations and when we are on the boat. The lens is micro four thirds and is around the equivelant of a 28mm on full frame.
This one shows more of the distortion you get shooting people at wide angles. He's signaling the server for his drink.
This is what remains of the crane that was used to unsuccessfully salvage the freighter SS Dominator that got caught on the rocks of Palos Verdes, CA in 1961. ND filters not used. This shot is a series of 16 exposures stacked in photoshop and the "mean" values applied. Images taken with the Sony A7rii and SEL1635z lens.

A 13 mile backpacking trip to see one of the many beautiful lakes in the High Uintas Wilderness. Really enjoyed watching the sunset on the mountain peak.

SunflowersI was at my village (I won't say the name so no worries about pronunciation) and for first time since few months I've had the evening all for myself and my hobby. I took a small walk and those sunflowers were so magnificently lightened by the descending sun, that I just got to take a shot.T he image is taken with Nikon D7200, Kit lens - 18-140mm; 1/250sec, at f/9 ISO 100 A.D.Wheeler - I don't mind using my images for educational purpose - if you need the original file I will be glad to send it to you. I believe they could be a good way to show how not to shoot 😉 😉

Red Rose after the rainRed rose with some water drops from fresh summer rain. That has fallen recently. I used flash to capture the image, but then I've had to remove lots of white dots from it. The image is cropped and I am wondering if 1x1 (square crop) won't look even better. Taken with Nikon D7200 with kit lens 18-140; MAcro Filter x4 used on the lens; 1/100 sec at f/8 ISO 200 A.D.Wheeler - I don't mind using my images for educational purpose - if you need the original file I will be glad to send it to you. I believe they could be a good way to show how not to shoot 😉 😉
