    Hello Nikophiles, and a good Wednesday to all. For those of us in the Mid-Atlantic (and especially you poor saps in Georgia and the Carolinas), it looks like we're in for another solid dose of winter weather. Hope the devastating ice storm predicted for down south doesn't amount to what's forecast, because that sounds truly awful (but photogenic!).

    Since I'm sitting here doing some post on weather-related video from another project, the weather crisis news coverage inspired me to grab a couple of screen shots from the footage that's rolling past on my display.

    First is a shot from outside one of the client's greenhouses on a cold, windy day. I'm pleased to report that the D600 rig did well in 15F, though I went through batteries pretty quickly. OK, so most people will be posting stills that started as stills, but I have to say that the D600 makes some very nice video when you use it carefully. Share!
  2. And stepping into their greenhouse, a nice foggy look at some early growth. Looking forward to visiting them for more clips as spring approaches.
  3. Snowy owl at the local airport. Forgot the tripod so handheld d300 with 300mm f/4 and 1.4x teleconverter braced on car roof.
  4. Late last week I went looking for eagles in a state park, but all I found was a young deer. Looks like he was trying to tell me something.
  5. got to shoot at the Fox Theater, a renovated concert hall that's easily the best venue in Oakland. this pic is of Sheila E's timbale set.

  10. Near us there is a bronze age stone circle, built about 3,900 ybp. Here are two photos of it, taken about 30 years apart but with the same model of lens, a pre-AI 50/1.4. First, last week.
  11. And from about 1982ish, shot (probably) on FP4 in ID11; a scan from a print. I much prefer this one, the 20 cm of snow and the white-out really help!
  12. Nikon FM3A + Nikon 43-86/3.5 (late 70s version).
  13. I thought I did it right. Try again….
  14. Another 13 degree above zero day here in Ashland, Ohio. "Spring where art thou"?
  15. I haven't tried any video shooting yet, I'm intimidated . So here are a couple of still wall signs.
  16. Second wall same town.
  17. Last one of old bicycle shop still operating, same town.

  19. Our boxer Lucy, in a typical pose. Boxers are delightful dogs!
  20. Another foggy day spider web. Nikon D3X, Nikon 300 2.8, 1/125 sec, F/5.6. ISO 400
  21. Just a little reminder that old man winter is still here!
  22. Snow in Charleston, SC
  23. Here are mine for the week. Snow storm. Enjoy. Nikon D800 + Nikon 70-200mm
  24. But construction work continues on new auditorium
  25. Foggy morning at Lamar Street Bridge in Austin.
  26. Don't worry master, I will lick up ALL the snow!
  27. Got out over the weekend with the D800 and 60mm macro (or does Nikon call them micro...). The liverwort is with an LED ringlight on the lens, the Texas Spiny Lizard is available light. She was rather sluggish, so very cooperative.

  31. I have a new kitten, Maya, and I let her play with a brand new box. I love the mischievous look on her face, when she finally got hold of it.

  32. Hm, beginner's mistake, I haven't been on Nikon Wednesday for a very long time and I've forgotten the correct way to send the photos. One more try.

    In these days, children tend to spend way too much time on video games.
    Nikon Df with the 85mm/f1.4 AF-S lens @ f2, 1/50 sec and ISO 6400. The depth of field is so shallow that I had a hard time getting both faces in focus.
  34. Out for a hike the other day. Beautiful weather so far.
  35. Patrick S - what a delightful capture!
  36. My favorite subject: granddaughter Iris, 11 months old now. Like her mom, my daughter Jennifer, she is getting used to being photographed!
  37. Hope everyone stays safe and warm. Despite our unusually cold and dreary weather, I have some lovely little yellow visitors. Hope they brighten and warm your day.

  38. Happy Wednesday Nikon people. It's been a while but having initially lost my way into last week's thread, I see the quality of photography is still top notch. A local photographer decided to migrate to M4/3 recently and has been steadily selling his irresistible Nikon kit. I got his Sigma 70-200 DG HSM EX OS this past Sunday. It's a heavy bugger but it seems very good and I'm yet to do any focus-adjustments on it. Here's one of the first few pictures with it featuring my 17 month old son running to wrestle the camera from me.
  39. Another with same lens but this time on D2H
  40. Hi everybody in Nikon-land, I've not been out doing any photography since I did the head shots so I have very little to present. But a few weeks ago my husband locked the dogs in the house while he did something in the driveway. Our youngest dog, still a puppy did something so cute I dashed for the D800 which luckily was on the kitchen table & I managed to get these three shots in of her. One I managed to delete in camera but I have the others. So, this is two different photos, three different types of processing.... I checked the rules & saw no problem with presenting this way so I hope it's ok with everyone, especially Shun & Lex. Past this all I have is Panoramas from August of last year that I'm working on. And for some reason I believe Panoramas are not to be presented here. Or have I got that wrong.....

  44. Preston Dunlap, a fine local musician, died last week. I only got to see him perform once, at Hip Pocket Theater last summer. I never got around to posting these, all taken with the Nikon V1 and 50/1.8D AF Nikkor via the Fotodiox all-manual adapter, all at ISO 800-1600. Nice combo, once I dialed in the guesstimated exposure, and most turned out sharp despite the lack of VR and my usually shaky mitts.
    And here's a video from that performance, also using the V1 and 50/1.8 Nikkor. The built-in mics sound pretty good when conditions are right - I added a little homebrewed wind screen made from some foam and velcro tape. You can see how shaky my hands usually are - YouTube's software stabilization went nuts trying to compensate for my shake, and the odd distortions lend an appropriate hallucinatory vibe to this haunting rendition of Townes Van Zandt's "Marie". That's Bruce Payne on vocals and rhythm guitar, Jack "Bullett" Harris on brushes, and Preston weaving those subtle guitar lines in and around the tune. They'd rehearsed only once but I think they may have performed together before. I never would have guessed these fellows didn't gig regularly. Here's one with the 10-30 VR Nikkor, doing "Fire In The Hole" and other songs - no need for YouTube software stabilization on that one! (There are a few other videos on my channel, all taken with the V1 and built in mics, also at Hip Pocket.)
