I love everything about #1.  Excellent

Thanks! All the other shots are ok but I feel like that specific one with the Olympus is the best from that day. We mounted a Manfrotto 190 on a table, flipped the head tube and shot from there remotely with an iPad.

That was the most enjoyable moment of the morning. No need to squint through the viewfinder or check on a small screen if everything was ok. Just pure freedom to compose and shoot. The app is clumsy and very limited in scope, but at least it works for liveview, settings and remote shutter.

Controlling reflections was a real pain, but fun. I wouldn't mind doing this again now that I have more experience.

And now for a laugh, a couple of failed shots!  ;D

Here's the "don't use shallow dof when you need everything in focus":


And this is "the most flat shot of mozzarella cheese":

My wife and I decided that to have an appropriate perspective on the Trump inauguration, we needed to get away from our home in a suburb of Washington, D.C., for a week and make a trip to Mexico.  We just returned from San Miguel de Allende, where I tried my hand at some street photography.  Attached: three of the initial picks.

(1) Vendedor de Globos (Fuji X-T1 with 55-200mm)
(2) Afternoon in El Jardín (X-T1 with 18-55mm)
(3) Sanitarios Publicos (X-T1 with 18-55mm)

Very nice work! Reminds me of some more remote Italian villages where no tourist goes. The more you travel, the more you realize we are all the same.

Another shot from my phone.

Thanks - I enjoy playing about and turning stuff into something quite different from where it began.

You know, if I'd used my D200 more (I still use it) before I also bought a D700, then perhaps I wouldn't have bought the other camera. That old machine does things very well!

I love the use of light in the cat picture - suggestion is often far better than revelation.

I've been sucked back in to film after taking a cruise to Baja with my wife, daughter, and father.

Love it! My parents used to have an Olympus XA, but I think it got lost or thrown away so many years ago. Started photography on that little camera.

A couple years back I took a friend's Olympus 35 RD for a spin while helping on a workshop and it was a very fun camera to use!

UPDATE:

Took the Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 K (AI modified) for a spin and I had plenty of fun just taking family photos. It's a great lens despite being 40+ years old.
Tried it with a product shot to see how much I could push it. f/16, polarizer, D7000 and dealing with dust was a major pita. Seems sharp even when diffraction should start to creep in. Haven't really noticed any difference between f/8 and f/16, to be honest.

Shame to let Keith's thread die away...

Recent work and, for a change, about a couple of days old. Ever the romantic, I guess, and avid sympathiser with women for the boredom they inevitably find themselves having to suffer for our sakes.

Still in romantic mode, mind working overtime. So tender the gaze...

She's probably not much of a conversationalist, Rob.
