    1/1/18 First time out with my d7200 (and 35 1.8) Went to Los Angeles County Museum of Art and saw this woman reading information on the wall about the Chagall exhibit. I really like my d5100, but the 7200 can see in the dark!

    The weather has been less than perfect for the past couple of days making shooting outside virtually impossible for the new year thus far. I decided to fiddle around, indoors, with these dominoes and my Samsung phone and came up with this shot. I think its simple but effective.

    Mine are still in the camera but I'll post any that came out okay once I've got to the end of the roll and developed it.

    I had fun with the frozen bubbles on Saturday but the light was dull and overcast so definitely going to try again soon. It was too windy the rest of the weekend - maybe tomorrow although... it may "warm up" to 25 here...

    Okay, not the first image but 3 of the first attempts at the frozen bubbles. Can't figure out if it isn't cold enough here or if I didn't get enough glycerin in the solution or what.

    Glycerin? You don't need that. 2 parts water, 1 part dawn dish soap and 1 part corn syrup. Some say add one tablespoon of sugar but I haven't tried that yet. I read that it must be a max of 18*f.

    I read a post that if you didn't have corn syrup, then use the glycerin (wife had some of that). It also could be that I added it to kids bubbles instead of make my own.

    The corn syrup is a good thickener. You could probably boil down some simple syrup instead. I tried to use store bought bubbles that we had in the garage but they were frozen solid in the jar.

    As for if it is cold enough. As long as they're freezing it's cold enough.

    We're getting a nice collection here. Lets keep them going. Doesn't have to be shot on the 1st. Just your first of the year.
