Read an interesting article on Auto ISO and manual settings for my Nikon’s. Here is the article: Auto ISO
So I took a couple of minutes and set the D800 on manual, 1250 @ f8 to shoot the dogs playing in the backyard. Evening light coming from behind the dogs. ISO pegged at 6400 and images look good. Read the article, it’s a good move for those that want better control over image gathering.
Note the details on the left side of Lola’s face and having the luxury of picking a high shutter speed to stop the action of Hanna and Lola.
Just another tip of how to get it done to put in the toolbox.
Yesterday was great at the Bellamy Mansion. The people and the dogs were lovely. This afternoon are the last sessions.
Bellamy, yes as in the Mansion, and one of her dogs.
Hi all.. been busy shooting, Bellamy Mansion, UNCW, Big Talker, beautiful day at the ICW, Tate for the Pooch on the Porch, etc..

Shutter Life & Shutter Count Shutter count can check Nikon NEF files!
Enjoy a couple of pics from the ICW and have a great week.
I’ve started scanning my images from the 80’s taken in the NJ/NY area of lower Manhattan and Statue of Liberty.
While working on photography of the refurbishing of the Statue of Liberty I also took images of lower Manhattan and the Twin Towers.
I’ve images from boats, airplane and on location. I also have pictures from the roof of the South Tower.
So over the next couple of days I’ll be posting images as I get the transparencies cleaned, scanned and cleaned again.
First I’m editing down to the final cut of photos, then take them out of their mounts, soak them for awhile, then a quick bath in Kodak Photoflo, dry then inspect, a little more cleaning, scan, then software cleaning.
Long road, but at the end they are done for good.
Most are Kodachrome, scanned on a Nikon CoolScan 9000 using VueScan, 30 meg jpeg.
