Re: Milky Way

JT, Thank you. I followed the youtube tutorial (not literally but as a general guidance) and came up with this. I realized I have a bracketed shot so stacked them on Machinery HDR SW and post processed them on LR. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48318641402_22bc3de6b5_b.jpg Not so heavy handed t...

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

Yildiz, Here we go. These are with A99M2 + HVL20M (trigger) + HVL 43M (in wireless mode) + FP (Godox TT685S) in optical mode. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48313157792_5306cdae0c_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48313030296_8d9e52701b_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48313165...

Valery, thank you. You are absolutely right. Why didn't I think of it? :lol:

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

Yildiz, thanks for the reminder. My flash was replaced. Today I experimented with 70-400G and Vivitar 90f2 MD indoors. With my 90 as trigger, Sony 43 in wireless mode and Adorama flash in optical trigger. I need to down load from camera and up load to Flickr. But alas, social engagement has come in ...

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

Very nice colors JT. I did take some with 70-400. Will upload them tomorrow.
Yes indeed. Typical weekends are social engagement overloads.

Re: Familial Photos A99M2 + CZ24-70F2.8

Yildiz, Thank you. Much appreciated. I tried my Sony Flash in the wireless mode to eliminate the raccoon eyes on my daughter but the flash did not work and the results were unflattering. It was very hot and did not want to invite their wrath fiddling with settings. My second flash should be arriving...

Familial Photos A99M2 + CZ24-70F2.8

Had a chance to take some photos of Missus and the daughter before we went on a social soiree. It was noon, with bright flat sunlight and they were under an awning. Used Flash. Felt good about having very minimum hot spots and not having harsh light (a bane I was dealing with for a while). Any C&...

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

Thank you Yildiz and coincidentally yesterday I was planning on taking close up and/or macro. Debated between 90f2 Vivitar (MD), 100f4Bellows MD or Tamron 60f2.Managed to sneak few 70-400 shots though, just to keep up with JT. :D Will shoot them today as there were quite a few social engagements yes...

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

Here are some examples of Rokinon 85f1.4 on A99M2. I find MFD to be too large to enjoy close up shots. JT mentioned the same too. The lens seem to work better with A77M2 over A99M2. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48261240592_2c912a8f89_b.jpg This is a counter example of A77M2 is better than A99...

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

JT,
Love the colors and can see the challenge in using that lens. :)
I have been wanting (not a need) a longer macro. Mulling over
CZ15-35, Tamron 15-30 and Sigma 180Macro.

:) Yes! :) Sorry Sury ! I just tried to help you and did a little touch in FastStone Image Viewer: 4_b.jpg But again, it's just my opinion ! :? Valery, Thank you for fixing the image. It certainly reinforced my other choice. Your version certainly has more oomph. Anytime, please feel free to tweak....

Re: Flowers 2019 - Your Flower and Garden Shots

I have used the ZA 85mm, the Minolta 100mm Macro, and the Sony 70-200mm G for flower photography. All with decent results. They all have limitations (as we all know) and it usually comes down to minimum focus distance. The 100mm can get you close but I rarely gravitate to that lens. Maybe I will gi...
