Re: Landscape 2013

Thank you! The second and third were on the same day, at extreme low tide before and after sunset. The third was on another day with John and Ian. I inadvertently pulled an epic bait-and-switch on them.

Re: Landscape 2013

Wildieswife, I loved that series. Very pretty! Andy, you know I always dig your landscapes. Peter, those rocks in the surf are amazing! I would never leave that place!

Re: Vintage Sony Camera Strap

And here it is mounted on my SLT-A77 with Minolta 24/2.8 RS (I thought it would be fitting to have as many different eras present as possible).

Re: Snowburst at Mount Bachelor

Wow! That's some fierce weather. Did you get out into it or did you shoot this from the vehicle?

Vintage Sony Camera Strap

I just made the best craigslist find--a Sony-branded camera strap for the early 80's Betamovie camcorder. Fitting it to my A77 will be a trick because (surprise!) this Sony accessory has a proprietary connector. One end of the strap has the easy double-back-through-the-buckle connector, but the othe...

Re: Exhibit Portrait shots

Gio67, that's a great shot of your grandson. Make sure it shows up in his wedding reception slide show some day. Nice expression. I love the skin tones. Is the forehead area a tad "hot"? Thank you for the kind words! I'm not sure what you meant by the last bit though. Here's another of my ...

Re: Crazy camera setting - BIF

At six feet, it's hard to think that the flash couldn't have contributed anything, but in broad daylight and a shutter that can go up to 1/8000, the flash couldn't hurt anything either.

Re: Let's post some panoramas

Thank you guys. That's Washington State's Ruby Beach, now part of Olympic National Park. This view isn't usually possible at the beach, especially during the winter when a creek swollen with constant rain blocks access to the northern stacks. On this day, there was an exceptionally low tide (two fee...

Re: Crazy camera setting - BIF

I doubt very much that the flash could have done anything at this range, especially considering that it loses effective power in HSS mode.

Re: Weather Today-In Your Vicinity 2013

I took John ( Juanito200 ) and his son out to Ruby Beach. Just our luck it was raining. Not just any rain, I discovered afterward that it had a name, " Atmospheric River Poseidon ." Specifically, it was 3-5 inches of rain in just the day that we were there, but it continued all week: http:...

Re: Exhibit Portrait shots

Wow! What a way to break out into color portraits! Well done, Wildieswife. This is my wife, taken with the A700 and 35/1.8 SAM: http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7005/6521518887_c5952cb913.jpg At her Childhood Home by Kevin_Barrett , on Flickr I need to put that lens onto my new A77 already.
