  1. Note: In the interests of balancing performance and quality, the topic of image file size and dimensions as normally posted to this recurring thread is under discussion elsewhere in the Nikon forum (the topic is obvious when you look) - please check in there and comment if you have thoughts to share! That's the best place to talk about that particular topic. For now, consider keeping uploads no larger than 1600 pixels on the long side when it matters, and sticking with 1000 pixels when the image feels no pain at that resolution. On data size/compression, try to keep things under 1mb, shooting for 600kb when you can stop there. 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: For now, we're sticking with 1, 2, or 3 images per week as you see fit.

    It's Nikon Wednesday, so it's time for another episode of The Glamorous Life Of Product Photography! Or in this case, an image that probably won't make it past some PowerPoint presentations inside a manufacturer's engineering department - but where images still play a big role in communicating design concepts, training, and working with parts vendors. For this client, probably 90% of the images they have me make are for internal use and never get to see the excitement of decorating a web page or a trade show booth. The important thing is that they like having someone in charge of the process instead of passing around iPhone images (which, honestly, could still handle a lot of the same tasks, but who am I to talk them out of something a little more deliberate?). I'm sure I'm the only one with something this boring this week, so let's see some more lively photos!

    In my neighborhood - I've shot this view a couple of times, but need probably a manlift (is cherry-picker the better term??) for a clean view.
    This one was shot with a D750 and nearly 50 years old PC Auto 105/2.5. Love this classic Nikkor.
