Like some stills from some dark future movie… shooting out the car window on the way to work in the morning=fun times.
Deepest apologies. Early in the week, probably Sunday, Hana and I went for a walk around the boring corporate apartment complex in which we live, purely for exercise. On the way out the door, I said “I’m going to be optimistic” and grabbed the D7000 and Nikon 36-72mm E Series. While out, we gathered a […]
aka “MF Week!” but I didn’t want to be ambiguous about it… So I decided to only use old manual lenses this week. These included the Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 ai, the Nikon 36-72mm f/3.5 E Series, the Nikon 75-150mm Zomb-E Series, and the Vivitar 70-210mm f/3.5 Series 1 (Kiron, maybe). I thought about going crazy […]

The light was abysmal, foggy, lacking any sort of punch, and I used the old Nikon 36-72mm E-Series, which is one of the least contrasty or saturated lenses in my […]
Simon Davis-Oakley—one of the curators of the 365 project and community over on G+—created this assignment (sort of) on the G+ 365 Community pages. The assignment, should we choose to accept, was to shoot a 365 pic with foreground and background bokeh, and it followed a brief question and longer explanation of ‘Bokeh’ that took […]
So today I tried to combine the zoomy-flashy thing with multiple exposures… It didn’t work. Or, rather, it only worked once as far as I can tell. The process is something like playing a very complex, mallet-based instrument, or performing as a percussionist with several shakers/rattley things/tinkley bells/etc. to shake, rattle, or tinkle all in […]
So I played around with the zoomy-flashy thing again today. It was in large part an exercise in meh, but there remains something of interest about it. In this example, we have Ivan, who is likely looking at his sister or his food or, perhaps, a bug. But if you look very closely, there are […]
