#63392 Studio Class • Lighting

Posted by Nikon Shooter on Yesterday, 05:14 PM

This old toy — my boys played with for quite some years — left its
place on a shelf in my office to take the centre stage in the studio
for a class on studio lighting

#63364 Light Meter

Posted by Nikon Shooter on 17 July 2019 - 04:32 AM

Can I ask does anyone use a light meter with there equipment. 

I do but only in studio…
though it can be done without when tethered.

 

Would one of these give a more accurate figure than the camera?

Yes but, with modern DSLR, rather decimally in
any circumstances.

#63344 What was the Swedish army doing there?

The ruins of Falkenstein Castle is in the Weinviertel region of Lower Austria,
about 55 kilometres (34 mi) north of Vienna near the border to Czech Republic.
 
The castle was used as a "Reichsfeste", for the protection of the HRE Reich
with an overview over nearly all of Moravia. It was founded around 1050 by
Emperor Henry III. In 1106 Leopold III, Margrave of Austria purchased the castle,
from then on it was owned by the rulers of Austria. In 1572 Maximilian II sold
Falkenstein to the Baron (later Count) of Trautson.
 
In 1645, in the last period of the Thirty Years' War Falkenstein was conquered
by Swedish forces,
but not destroyed. Its decay began at the end of the 17th
century, when the castle was dismantled by the owners themselves in order to
re-use the material. 

During the summer season, the inner ward is turned into an impressive site for
medieval feasts and theatre plays.

#63335 My Nikkor AF Micro 60 mm lens does not focus with my new Nikon Z7 camera

Posted by Nikon Shooter on 16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM


I don't have that specific lens but, when I do macro work,
I only use manual focus except for focus stacking.

Walk a mile in my shoes...


An original idea of yours, Bengan?

If so, this is brilliant! I can only suggest to explore
other lighting conditions.
