I took that today with my new Nikon 60mm f2.8D AF lens and my new Nikon MD-D80. It was the first flower picture I have taken since the frost ended. I think it came out quite nicely. I shot it in Raw on my D80 and processed the NEf file in Aperture 2.
Here’s another. I was hoping to get a lot of beautiful tulip pictures but the City of Columbia cleared town of all the tulips today. I can’t imagine why, they sure seemed beautiful just the other day. Campus has a few, but due to the really strong winds and setting sun, I was pretty limited to what I could capture.
This last one I used a remote flash, Nikon SB-600 set as a slave to my camera’s built in flash. The flash sat behind my louvered door, bounced the flash off of the adjacent wall, through the louvres and onto the keyhole. I had a much better framed version of this shot but something happened and it disappeared from my flash drive during the import into Aperture.
Reminds me of something a little magical.
So, tell me, what do you think? It’s been a long time since I’ve done any photography, especially anything worth posting. With my left wrist out of the cast and working to getting movement back into it… I plan to be doing this much more often.
I’d love to read you thoughts. If you would like to download a full-size version of the the first picture, just click over here.
