  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.

    A good Nikon Wednesday to everyone. For me this week, it was some more product stuff going into a client's trade show video slide show. The problem: classic white-on-white issue. So if your object is nearly snow white, and the background is definitely going to be, you need to find a way to get some edge-defining negative reflection into play. I use an articulating arm and small light modifying gobos to paint item with light while excluding some of the edge, by blocking the light from it. White-on-white is always a challenge, so it's fun to see examples. But any will do, as long as you do. Share!

    At my alma mater, Harvey Mudd College in Southern California, there is a new, three-story computer science building named after Scott A. McGregor. This building has a very modern architecture, where the top floor is shifted and rotated a bit from the one below it, designed by Steinberg Hart.

    D750 and „cheap” AF-S 70-300 VR from a RIB (a wild ride ;-)

    And a reason why I love the EN-EL15 and Nikons DSLRs:

    Amazing stamina. This was shot with my second D750, the pictured first one has right now 365.240 clicks on it.

    That said - I will probably take my Nikkor-SW 90/4.5 out today to expose some sheets of 4x5.
