I got out and used my camera today...

Recommended Posts

Still learning. I should have remembered Weegee Fellig's "f/8 and be there" response when asked how he got all those great shots as a photojournalist.

Shot at 1/60s - f/4 - ISO250 - 105mm - Savannah (left) is just a little behind the in-focus plane while Hailee is as sharp as a semi-candid portrait needs to be.

Shot at 1/60s - f/5.6 - ISO400 - 95mm, Savannah is completely in focus where it matters.

After shooting with APS-C cameras for so may years, getting used to the significant difference in depth of field is my biggest challenge with moving to the A7. With all the other pluses from the move, this isn't exactly an ordeal and though a little challenge makes me work to be a better photographer, I sure wish my old habits would die a little easier.

Practice, practice, practice...

Birthday extravaganza this weekend. Lots of action and lots of color.

It was taken in one of my back yard gardens. My DH and I are cruising to Alaska in September and I am researching cameras which brought me to this forum. Loved all the photos and thought I’d share one of my own. Even if it was taken with an iPhone.

An impromptu visit to the city yesterday included rides on the harbour ferries. A few impressions (taken with my new camera)

We took a ride up to Mt Hood and Timberline Lodge yesterday. Maybe we weren't at the top of the world, but we were at the top of Oregon!
Need some trees?

People were still skiing on the 1st of Sept. They close after this weekend until they get some new snow, usually they open again in Nov.

Responded to my Launch Alert email this weekend and drove out to an open field for a 7:22 PM launch of a Falcon 9. Launches are pretty regular but early evening ones where the exhaust trail is lit by the sun below the horizon are often spectacular. It's funny and sad that once or twice a year when they happen, the 911 lines light up asking about aliens, nuclear war and other end of the world stuff.

 

First spark from 150-ish miles away.

High enough to catch the sun

Separation

The spark on the right of the plume is the first stage burning for return to base

Not much air left up there

Adios!

Thanks to SpaceX and the payload manufacturers for spending millions of dollars to entertain me for 15 minutes or so!
