Re: Night shots - open thread

The image I linked to was taken with the RX1. That has a 35mm f2.0. That is about the maximum focal length you would want to use. The 24mm should be fine. It's always about composition. Light painting the foreground is something I hope to try. Already bought the flashlight.

Re: Night shots - open thread

Sury, I know I am the wrong Jeff but YouTube is a treasure trove of information about this very topic. You need a fast wide prime, a solid tripod, remote trigger or set the timer, and no or minimal light pollution. Then you need to time the moon (rising or setting, preferably new moon phase). Southe...

Re: Ruffled Feathers

Check the bird in image 2 in post #2. Clearly this bird was self mutilating. Having new friends willing to interact/groom allows the healing to take place. I have other images that I thought should not be posted. Birds with one eye or others that have plucked their breasts bare were heart wrenching ...

Thanks Sury. A few more. JT http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/167884142.ZpNqMco5.jpg http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/167884144.BfodbKrF.jpg http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/167884145.hpCFVnik.jpg http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/167884146.Mj9RzOVK.jpg

Ruffled Feathers

Ruffled Feathers is a bird sanctuary in a shopping mall in Hanover, PA. Odd place for it but it's just a large room with many large cages for exotic birds that have been through tough times. Some were abused and some outlived their owners and could not find a home. These birds are highly intelligent...

Re: Rawlings Conservatory

I think Valery is right. There is no way to present wide angle shots in this forum.

Rawlings Conservatory

Located n the heart of Baltimore, MD, the Rawlings Conservatory is a little oasis in an area of the city that has seen better days. Took a quick trip up there today and shot mostly super wide. a99 Tamron 15-30 f2.8 http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/167871226.todaY7X6.jpg http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64...

Re: Water Age

Thanks for commenting. I wanted to exploit the bokeh that the ZA 135 produces. Never seen it in video before. The camera defaults to f3.5 in auto mode but the lens still delivers. It's amazing what one can find will wandering around the back yard. For Yildiz; https://www.allmusic.com/album/the-monum...

Water Age

Stir crazy due to 3 straight days of heavy rain. Why not reflect the water that fills my world in still and moving images. Quick walk around the house with the a99 and ZA 135mm 1.8. http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/167507733.vpnyt1T6.jpg http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/167507735.CIm8PTuP.jpg ...

Re: Spring has Srpung

Thank you both for commenting. It was a fun exercise. The shots with the Tamron were taken with one hand as I was holding the umbrella with the other. http://a4.pbase.com/g10/64/511964/2/167191609.4uY0RMQl.jpg The rest were taken from inside the car, making sure that the snow was blowing in the othe...
