Totally borded with nothing to do? Stop by Edward Jones @ 66 S High St, Dublin to view some delishes photos of berries, peppers, mushroom, etc. Will be hanging around for the months of Aug and Sept.
Last night the movie Only the Brave opened here in Columbus market. It’s about the Granite Mountain Hotshots stationed in Prescott, AZ. On June 30, 2013, 19 members of the group were killed fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire. The movie based on that group and that fateful day is excellent. A good look into what it’s like to be a hotshot and how it affects the family life. I highly recommend this movie.
On September 12, 2013 I was fortunate to be able to tour the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, ID while on my We The People 2013 photo study around the US. They were very gracious and showed me how the system works. They provide one of the largest communication systems in the world. There is the command center, warehouse, jump center and a garden memorial. Quite the experience, very honored to have been there.
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.
Hi all.. been busy shooting, Bellamy Mansion, UNCW, Big Talker, beautiful day at the ICW, Tate for the Pooch on the Porch, etc..
Here a great link for Nikon people. Camera shutter life expectancy database and another link for how many times has your finger pushed the button on your camera.
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.
