    Yet another actor/model headshot

    You really nail the criteria asked of the agent! It is very engaging, with that smile it makes me really want to know her. Great work!

    I picked these up at an estate auction, I am super happy.

    I have heard that about macro lenses, but I have never used them myself. I will defiantly keep that in mind. Thanks!

    My best friend Franzi. CC

    She has three other Instagram names, one for adventure/travel photography, and one is Fine Art composite type work, and one of videography based. She does filming and editing, mostly music videos. She even acted in one last spring. She is crazy well rounded, and so much fun to work with. :)

    Very good point on scratching, I will be very careful and will use tape or something to try and stop scratching. I like the idea of a rubber gripper in place of a spanner. Thanks! :)

    In the hundreds of estate sales I have been to, this is the only one that has ever had anything camera related. It doesn't help that the auction service did a really bad job listing them because they couldn't be bothered to research them for 30 seconds.

    You really missed out on using the perfect line, "one ring to rule them all!" :lol: "Not too bad." is better than most of my lenses. LOL Thanks. :)

    That focus limiter sounds handy. I hadn't looked up the age of the lens yet, but I figured it had a little age on it. Everything at the auction camera-related looked like it had been sitting a long time. It has 4 positions, "Full" "15' to infinity." "10' to infinity." and "10' to M." which I am...

    Focus limiter is my guess too. That is new to me though. I am really excited to get them though, too bad there wasn't a 600mm f4 there! LOL There was a lady there who had brought her Nikon with her, and she was testing them, but she didn't even check them for fungus or dust which is what really...

    I picked these up at an estate auction, I am super happy.

    I paid $25 each, they have just the tiniest bit of fungus starting but it shouldn't be hard to clean out and I think was well worth it. This 80-200mm the switch to turn it to manual aperture is missing/broken off, but I got it switched so that is all good. I have never had Nikon gear before...

    I also thought that you would have to grind them down, or some of the piles for electronic and finer work have a small point.

    He was working on an old Rusian Helios 44-2 58mm, and they are a smaller lens for sure.

    My best friend Franzi. CC

    I just sharpened them, and a little bit of dodging and burning because there was a bit too much shadow over them. Her eyes are so incredible, they are stunning! Thank you. :) I see what you mean, I got it a bit too sharp. I can back that off easily. Great catch, thanks! :)

    My best friend Franzi. CC

    I took this photo of one of my very best friends, Franzi. She does model and act, so if you are going to be in Norway and need a model, let me know. ;) CC is very welcome on the photo and editing in general. This was kind of a quick snapshot, so no major planning. Canon T3i, vintage 135mm f2.8...

    I saw that you can also use a pair of calipers if needed.
