Thanks a lot BillTwo very nice compositions, one indoors with a dark subject and one outdoors with a lighter one for contrast.
They prompt me to look forward to Spring and feel nostalgic for vinyl records.
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a goVinyl record shot looks very cool Morten. Very nice use of DOF in the flower shot. I would try cropping about 1/4 of the image from the left hand side to see it the composition improves more.
Many thanks NickTwo very lovely shots—and as has been noted, full of emotion (nostalgia and longing).
Thank you Connie. I don't know why the exif is not there. I have inserted them from flickr like I did with the previous?These are really lovely, Morten! My favorite is the flower, but both are excellent macro/closeup shots!
Why is there no EXIF info provided under the images?
Thanks a lot GordonTwo wonderful photos Morten. Being a gear-head, I'm really liking the vinyl shot.
VERY nice! I love raindrop shots! Amazing shallow DOF here.....puts the emphasis right where you want it!
Many thanks Connie and NickLovely. It says spring!
I tried a few, but lacking a good macro and the absence of color for interest killed that project for me.
Thanks we are all good... and busyMorton!!!!
It is so nice to see you here again! How have you been? And how is the family especially my babies Lasse and Lisa? I see everyone, including Marley, has grown so much. I look forward to seeing all of your images, and a very nice start to the 52 week so far!
Thanks for the motivating words. I agree macro/close-up lenses are important... and you are surely getting great use of yoursCute doggie and beautiful flowers! Spring is definitely on its way at your place!
I definitely agree about how doing a project like this can motivate one and get the photography juices flowing again. I took somewhat of a hiatus from photography for a while, too, and the same thing happened, my gear sat around in bags and cabinets, not being used. In the summer of 2018 I bought a "bridge" camera, an RX10 IV and that kind of started me going again, and I had a lot of fun with that camera, but.....one thing it does not do well is macro, and I also sometimes was frustrated by the small sensor on that camera. I started thinking about gear again and shooting a bit more, but mostly snapshot kinds of things, nothing serious. The RX10 is a great travel/walkaround camera and I really appreciate it for that purpose.
I started looking at reviews and comments, others' images and also thinking more seriously about what it is I most like to shoot. I had a Sony mirrorless camera, the NEX 7, so was already familiar with and really liked mirrorless cameras. I wanted something new and I felt that for me mirrorless was the way forward. I had almost settled on getting a Sony A7 III when around that time we learned that Nikon was going to be releasing a new mirrorless series, so of course I waited to see what was coming. I still investigated other cameras, for various reasons becoming more interested in the A7R III, and watched as the Z cameras began getting into users' hands. Time went on..... I looked at Nikon's "roadmap" and not a macro lens in sight. Uh-oh..... A macro lens is very important to me. Just about the time I had decided on the A7R III, darned if Sony didn't announce the A7R IV! I waited some more, to see what that camera would bring to the field..... Finally in November I took the leap and bought an A7R IV and, yes, two macro lenses. Not long after that on its updated "roadmap" Nikon finally included a couple of macros, but -- sorry, too late for me. I'm already very happily enjoying my new gear and am pleasantly surprised at the burst of pent-up energy that I've been expending ever since, shooting nearly every day, shooting subjects of various sorts, exploring more in the way of editing/post-processing/retouching, etc. It's fun and really wonderful! I've got a whole new lease on (photographic) life! I hope that something similar happens for you, as photography is too special a creative outlet to just let slip out of one's life.
Many thanks BillMarley looks like he is enjoying the nice weather and wants to play!
Beautiful flowers with a subtle composition, very nice Morten.
It is incredible what happens in a week - thanks NickWhat a difference a week makes—that says Spring has arrived.
Thanks a lot GordonWeek 8 - cool raindrop shots, I especially like that second one.
Week 9 - nice pup portrait!
Many thanks Gary. Some years back I got this turntable. Finally I could say it was a good idea to have kept all my vinyl in boxes for over 20 yearsWow, I have not seen a linear tracking table in a long long time. As an old vinyl guy, it brought back memories. What else can a picture do? Nicely done, thanks
