    Nikon Turns out I'm a bit of a bokeh whore - who knew?!?!?!

    Lovely images Ray. Your pictures make me want to consider bokeh while making an image. Almost. Though I shoot a D800e with a bunch of lenses, my favourite "bokeh" comes from a apsc DP3m. I need to try more lenses on the Nikon.

    Went to Turkey for a few days...

    It's quite a sizable difference in use. Though I must warn you that the converter has some complex distortion that I find very difficult to correct in post. Also LR doesn't have a profile for it, which makes it particularly hard. Also flares like a *(^^!

    color temperature of light bulbs

    It's an issue I end up grappling with quite a lot. Sometimes cheaper LED alternatives are used in projects, with poor CRI properties, and the space becomes very difficult to photograph. Our brains usually make up for poor lighting, but pictures show up all the faults. The cove lights are the...

    color temperature of light bulbs

    Hey Luke, it's unfortunately not as simple as finding out the color temperature of your light fitting (bulb) or it's intensity (lumens). The quality of light has a lot more to do with it's CRI (color rendition index, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_rendering_index) than it has to do with...

    Before and After: Lets see yours :)

    Hi Ray, my apologies, missed seeing your question. The D800e was definitely on a tripod. a big honking studio tripod in fact. A Manfrotto Triaut 058B with a heavy Junior Geared Head. I was bracketing shots at ISO100 (f16) and this was the darkest image of the series. Ever since I realized that I...

    Sue, this is from the Sigma DP3m. Images from the D800 just don't have this "bite" straight out of camera.

    Before and After: Lets see yours :)

    That was shot on a tripod Ray. 1/3rd of a second at f16, at 17mm. It was a chain of bracketed exposures for an HDR, but to my surprise a single underexposed image is good enough on the D800.

    If "recent posts" were the start page, it would go back to being dynamic again, instead of having to click through to get new content. Though I'm not too sure how well that would work for newcomers coming to the site for the first time.

    advice on how to shoot highly reflective items

    You can use two simple table lamps with narrow beams in a dark room to avoid reflections. Just make sure you are not illuminated by the lights. Something like this. With this setup you need to make sure that the backdrop is far enough away that it's not too well illuminated with the...

    advice on how to shoot highly reflective items

    Luke, what you're attempting to shoot is not easy and will stump a lot of photographers. I would start by forgetting about the camera entirely and just walk around with the LP cover and keep turning it till you see no reflected light off it. This is easier to achieve when you have a smaller...

    Featured: 'pour' by pdh

    I often feel that a photograph (or any work of art really) is like Schrodinger's cat. One can't pick it apart and try and understand it without losing something in the process.
