#73386 Left Undone

Among the many other social activities, a basket workshop. Since a year — we all
know why! — the workshop has been suspended and the projects left undone.

#73369 I Did NOT Move My Feet… I Swear!

The same lens, the same set up but from a stand up position

to bending the knees, I got two images.

#73337 Basic depth of field

Posted by Nikon Shooter on 05 May 2021 - 06:03 AM

Is it true that I should always focus on the center-most object or car (i.e white car in image)?


IMO and experience… no, it is not. So is the idea to choose a much smaller
aperture… questionable.

It all has to do with the brain and the way it perceives images. Our eye has a 
fair DoF but not an extravagant one. OTOH, the brain has a memory that cu-
mulates different images and builds a memory of those images, pretty much
like focus stacking some images.

I would go for ƒ11 and focus on the third car in your example. That would ma-
ke the first five cars pretty sharp and the rest reasonably focused WITHOUT
the diffraction problems inherent with specular highlights.

Are you following me or was I too obscure? :)

As Bones McCoy would say…


Some might just prefer the Klingon approach… what do I know?  rofl.gif

#73265 Got the First Stab Today

Posted by Nikon Shooter on 30 April 2021 - 08:34 AM


"Please tell me when to say OUCH!"

The doctor showed a smile in her eyes, sat down again telling me what
very rare discomfort to expect the next three days: a slight pain in the
arm, possibly some headaches… do not perform any hard physical work 
over the weekend. "You may put your jacket back on again, we're done!"

WHAT? No blood, no sweat, no tears? She had a short laugh and confir-
med the date and time of the second one.

I was so excited to get it and all I have to show for now is a ridiculously
tiny plaster on the upper arm. "C'mon, I am (up to now!) a covid survivor!"
I should have a plaster with some colours on it at least.  rofl.gif
