l was looking through some old photos, and found my favorite image taken with the 85 1.4D. l didn't keep this lens long. lt was too big,heavy, and image quality at 1.4 was bad. Later l ended up buying the 85 1.8D and am much happier with it. Wish l would have bought the 1.8 first-would have saved alot of $$$$. The one thing l miss about the 1.4D is rounded aperture blades. The 1.8D is Nikon's only AF 85 that doesn't have them.

Dogs always look good in B&W photos.

l went to my grandmother's house to do some work. She is watching my cousin's dog for a week while they're on vacation. When Gracie was a puppy she got really sick. And her right ear never stood up after that. D7100, 85 1.8D, SB-80DX in A mode bounced off ceiling, ISO 100.


Motocross night races

27 July 2019 - 02:19 AM

l went after work and got a few good ones. Now that l shoot RAW, l was able to tone down blown out highlights. Last time l did a night race it was with ISO 800 film, and had to use an external flash. Since l shot the D7100 at ISO 4000, l was able to use the pop up flash. Used a UV filter on the 18-135 DX lens in case the bikes were kicking up dust and dirt. Should have not used the filter because the bright track lights caused flare in some of the shots. ISO 4000 is getting noisy. You can see the noise in the hi res images. Probably not a good idea to print larger than 8 X10.


Photo outing tomorrow

26 July 2019 - 03:24 AM

lt's been a long time since l've been on a photo outing. Friday they're having a night race at the motocross track in Conroe Texas. Taking the D7100. Here are a few that l took years ago when l used to go at least once a year. Haven't been to that track in 5 years. And the last time l shot a night race was back in the film days, about 2003. l used the N80. The last image posted here was taken shortly after l got my first DSLR(D50).
