Packed up my D90 to be sent out for a checkup.
It seems to be backfocusing a LOT (and I've missed one too many good shots because of it). Initially I had heard that this was, more often than not, a function of the lens...but after testing it on 3 of my lenses, I am thinking it...
my nikon refurb'd D90 arrived yesterday in FLAWLESS condition. ordered from Cameta and arrived very well packed in about 3 days. everything was sealed and happy. i havent yet looked for a total shutter count.
so far im LOVING the upgrade from the D1x. of course, im missing the probody...
havent visited in awhile...been uber busy.
here are a couple shots from my most recent shoot.
oh, and im looking to upgrade with tax money...
was thinking D90 body...any thoughts?
comments welcome, as always.
glad to see everyone seems to be...
hope all your bellies are full from thanksgiving and you all had an enjoyable day. :hug::
so a few weeks ago i was using my studio strobes and one of the fuses blew.
i just got around to going to home depot today to replace it and grab some spares for this situation in the...
i had a booth at ArtAttack2010! in manchester NH on saturday, and thought i would share the images that i had printed for sale. much to my bewilderment i did quite well and sold a total of 9 prints, so that was a bit of a thrill for me.
as always, C&C is welcomed and appreciated...
yes, i already made a thread with this pic in it in the beginners section, but was rather saddened by the lack of C&C. :(
so i apologize for the second thread.
maybe this is a more appropriate place for it.
as stated before, this was taken for submission (and hopefully accpetance) into a...
Here's what I came up with for my submission into the "get your freak on!" show at space242 in boston. the theme is circus and sideshow type freaks, carnival life....things like that. i realized saturday afternoon that submissions were due today, so my wife and i did this saturday...
i didnt even want it that bad, but you know how ebay can be. sometimes ya gotta win just to win. lol.
just scored a d1x with 4 batteries and the mh-16 charger. i think i still got a decent deal though, so i think im ok with it. lol
finally got my V4s in the mail just now.
this is a pointless post since ive only mounted the transceiver on the cam so far. lol.
tough to play with new toys at work.:(
sorry for wasting your time.;) just a little stoked to have these.
i'll try them out later and report back.:thumbup:
here are a couple shots from a shoot i did yesterday with a model mayhemer (same girl from last time).
i know the darker one has some exposure issues...the left is blown out, and her face is underexposed. i tried bumping up the exposure when processing the raw but it got noisy...
as i still consider myself a beginner, i thought i would post this here, and ask for a little C&C. this is my second shoot that i set up from model mayhem, and she wants to go again on sunday.
i have a couple more i like too if anybody wants me to post them.
thanks as always!
my mom just called me and said she has access to a nikkor af 35-70 3.3-4.5 lens for $30, and asked if i wanted her to pick it up for me.
after looking at my gear list, does anyone think this lens is worth my $30, or should i let it go?
i had a shoot this past saturday with someone from model mayhem.
it went well...she was super easy to work with, and we had a good time.
she's looking forward to shooting again.
just looking for general C&C i guess.
i'm sure some will say i have processed these to hell :D
i may have ;)
finally a couple new little toys...
i have a D1h on its way, shipping today. (i really wanted KMH's D1x but couldnt justify the cost)
i know i know...why buy a low res cam...but i would like a second body, and i don't really print. i look forward to DOF preview, bracketing, good...
i amnot usually one to take nature pictures, but i thought this was a nice spot to shoot. i had the day off monday, and took my son up the kancamangus hwy (white mtn region in NH).
they definitely have some exposure issues since it was around 1 in the afternoon, but i thought these came out...
close-ups are one area that im very interested in experimenting with.
i see pics that people take where the subjects face or some area of the body takes up most of the frame.
i really like the look of images like that, and never really played around with the concept.
here's a spur of the moment...
