  1. Important: please keep your image under 1000 pixels on the longest side for in-line viewing, and please keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc). Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Wednesday threads are right here: This forum's moderators are allowing up to three Nikon Wednesday images per week, so share some work!

    The siren song of being paid to make images for clients - pretty irresistible, right? And product photography: just the ticket for our locked-down-at-home times, isn't it? Be careful what you wish for, because sometimes the client provides "a demo unit" to shoot for their trade-show-sized poster. And by "demo unit," they mean "that one we use as a hockey puck on the weekends." This particular widget had chunks chipped off its lens housing, and was badly scratched up, full of dings and worse. So as usual, it was fifteen minutes with the camera, and hours with Photoshop to make it purty (enough).

    Here's a quick peak at the glamorous life of making product photos. Got any before/after shots for this Nikon Wednesday? Share what you got, regardless - it's that time of the week.

  8. Another image from my recently rejuvenated FE2. Fuji Superia 400 scanned with Coolscan V/Vuescan and some processing in Photoshop. A little bit of magenta cast that I can't seem to get rid of. Beach day, South Padre Island, Texas. 6/2/2020. Beach Day Nikon Film Camera SPI.jpg
  9. No afters yet, just a before. In Middlebury, VT the railway runs under the center of town, and they're replacing the whole shebang, bridges and whatnot. There are three of these huge cranes. I haven't figured out yet a good vantage point for the new skyline, but here's one of them. To get an idea of the size, those counterweights add up to 110 tons. big crane.jpg

    Even at 9fps, it's surprising just how far a bird can go...:D
