A new old toy arrived today: a Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 ai. This is incredible. Sharp, contrasty, good color rendition and saturation, well-corrected, and capable of an astonishing 8:1 reproduction ratio on 100mm of extension tubes. D7000. Nikkor 24mm f/2.8 ai, reversed, on 100mm of extension tubes. ISO400, 1 second, f/11. More pictures of a ruler […]
From the ‘Dallas Blooms’ photowalk, with thanks to Greg D of the DFW Photography Club of Texas MeetUp group… 365.80 Ohne Titel D7000. 75-150mm E Series, reversed. ISO400, 1/125 (AP mode), f/8.
The Dallas Blooms photowalk went down today, organized by Greg D of the DFW Photography Club of Texas MeetUp group, and held at the Dallas Arboretum. I took the D7000 and 75-150mm E Series (mounted in reverse…), as well as the Ricoh 35 ZF. I finished a roll of Fuji Pro 400H and started a roll […]

Got home a bit early today, and so I took the reversed 75-150 for a walk around the apartments. This is the best shot I got, though I was shooting more to test the performance characteristics of a reversed 75-150mm E Series in the wild than to make a competent photo. I tried to take […]
Question: Why is there a tilt-shift type effect going on here? I’m probably going to take the 75-150mm E Series to the Arboretum for a meetup on Saturday, and I’m probably going to take it reversed, with ~30mm of extension tubes on the end as a sort of lens hood. An interesting thing about reversing […]
And another one that I want to see printed BIG. Oh what fun things you can make with a couple of flashlights and some coffee stirrer things that will one day become a gridspot for the SB700 (maybe later today, but probably not). D7000, 75-150mm f/3.5 E Series, Reversed. ISO100, 1″, f/16.
