Nikon D700 + 105mm 1.4E

All this time I totally forgot about trying the 105mm 1.4E on the classic D700.  This lens usually stays forever mounted on my other main body.  Always wide open at f/1.4 because well, that’s where this lens shines annnd because the D610 sensor is so dusty every speck shows up at smaller apertures. The D700 […]

Sunday Funday + Bonus Rainbow!

Thanks to Chalita and her dad for randomly stopping by the other day!  Here are some photos from a somewhat spontaneous mini adventure.  The rainbow was definitely unplanned, but for Georgia in the summer, it always has to shower unexpectedly somewhere.  Stepped out of the house with 3 cameras, and 3 different lenses.  Nikon D610 […]

iPhone 3GS Camera Revisited: Lovely Nostalgic Vintage Aesthetic

Behold, here are some amazing lo-fi aesthetic photos from the iPhone 3GS! Again thanks to Phalatda for letting me take a trip down memory lane with this lovely image making device.

Nikon F100 + 105mm 1.4E + Expired Kodak Gold 200

Thanks to Thomas for some rolls of expired film!  My guess is the film might have been at least ten years old, but I’m glad it still registered an image.  Here are some examples of the first expired roll on an F100 and 105mm 1.4E.  Out of 24 exposures I think I got about 16 […]

Canon EOS RP + EF 85mm 1.2L II

Hello everyone, just thought I’d post a few random photos from the last couple of years taken with the Canon RP and EF 85mm f/1.2L.  This is the mark II version of the lens and it focuses quite well with the EOS to R Canon adapter.  This lens was pretty sluggish on older DSLRs and […]
