Odds & Ends (major album)

This is the "other" & "temporary" spot when photos dont fit into a major category or there are not enough to form an album in their own right. I tend to rely on 'tags' to bring like photos together.

Car & Motor Cycles

I am not a car enthusiast however they can be bright, colourful and shiny & hence an object of photographic desire.

Some of the early photos were taken with a 2MP camera and cropped. Some of the car show photos were taken with a small pocket camera.

Canon 50mm F1.8 Examples

I am agonising over my next steps in photography. Should I go for some good primes. To help I have started using my old and cheap 50mm lens - examples in this album. Seems to work quite well. However will I get a lot more out of other focal lengths and much dearer lenses!!

Constructive Criticism Welcome

I know I have difficulty deciding if the members putting up photos want constructive comments. Hence I thought I would add photos to album where I am definitely happy to receive feedback.

Nikon D300 Examples

A good friend let me try his very new Nikon D300 with 18-200 VR lens. It is a wonderful camera and the lens has a very seductive zoom range. However I didnt plan the morning tryout well - I tended to use it too much at close range and I was not conversant with all the AF options. Focus wasnt where I expected in several cases however still a few very nice shots.

Miscellaneous Graphs

These is an experiment to see how I can get graphs into a forum I am interested in. A picture (including graphs) is worth a thousand words.

B&W& Sepia experiments

I have enjoyed other members forays into B&W hence I have been encouraged to venture out a little. I will start looking at photos which might make candidates for monochrome. At this point "sepia" tones seem to suit more.

Temporary - How to convey heat?

Holiday just after Xmas at southern beach and river resort. Starting to warm up to another spell of 40C plus days. Todays temp in Adelaide is going to be 43C.

A bit difficult to convey the oppressiveness of days of 40C plus - definitely restrict activities and try to find a cool spot. Seas lovely and cool but beaches are not all that cool and somehow showing people playing in the beautiful clear waters with lovely blue skies doesnt convey the whole message.

Old Hollywood.
Jan 1, 2012

Not my photos of course - from one of those circulated PPS files. However brings back very strong memories of yesteryear. Also great examples of photography and the value of B&W.

Horses & Mules (Not my photos)

Not my photos of course. I just love to see these old B&W photos so I hope I am not doing any harm in promoting them.

Fuji XS1 examples

Great build quality, great ergonomics with huge zoom. However this all comes at a price - sensor still small though bigger than many so ISO400 plus is quite a stretch. Camera has great feel and features but needs good light.
