Today I was for the first time experimenting the Canon 500D close up filter on my older 400mm, the K (ai'd) ED non IF. The subject was a caterpillar of no more than 1 inch (< 2.6 cm) taht was attacking the decorative fern of my balcony.


Lens set at infinity focus (with filter the real focus distance was 0.82cm):

D3 + 400mm f/5.6 K (ai'd) ED + Canon 500D filter + Nissin macroflash + tripod.
ISO 200, f/11 at 1/60s, ~15% crop, 0.82 m of distance.



Lens set to MFD (5m), but with filter was in fact at ~ 0,81m):

D3 + 400mm f/5.6 K (ai'd) ED + Canon 500D filter + Nissin macroflash + tripod.
ISO 400, f/11 at 1/60s, ~40% crop, 0.81 m of distance.

Even at f/11 the DOF is truly very thin.
I hope Curtis do not forbid these shots , since the Canon filter just allowed closer focusing and the image was from a Nikkor lens.

Here's a staged portrait of a young violin player - taken for a local paper. This time I've set up two speedlights - one SB800 at about 1/16 or 1/32 power in a small softbox high and left of my camera and another SB800 (bounced to the ceiling, at about 1/4 or 1/8 power) on a small lightstand behind the girl. I'd choose some colorful lockers as background because I've tried to avoid a concert-hall-look. The cut-off forearm bugs me a bit.

I like it Georg, the lighting is perfect. I agree with you about the forearm.

Ron,

Very nice shots, and great to see your wife also enjoying the tele lens. The 400 3.5 would hardly be a knife. If anything you may want to attach a TC to it to get longer reach.

Where on the Susquehanna is that? There is a dam north of Baltimore I have heard of (maybe at Gunpowder Falls?) that I hear has loads of bald eagles.

A day with one of North America's most magnificent bird the bald eagle. This is probably one of the best sites on the east coast on the Susquehanna river. I counted at least 20 juvenile eagles and twice that many adults. We felt very much out of place here as you can glean from the one picture. I counted no less than a half dozen Canon 800mm's and a ton of Nikon 600's. As I told my wife I think we brought our knife to the gun fight. First 2 shots of the crowd and my wife(50 1.2 AI) and

Ben,

Thanks, I wish I had some presets, no that's just playing around first in After Shot Pro (white balance, and any noise reduction) where I convert the raw file, and then I fix any exposure or contrast issues and do one round of auto-sharpen usually in Elements. That's the extent of my post-processing skills. The D800 files have made my entire workflow a bit longer, I do a bit of waiting each time I make an adjustment

Samy - love the autumn colours - do I see some presets at work here ? the shots have very evocative contrast and grain?

Jose, you can get the 400 5.6 to do some magic each time!

very nice Georg.....for me, the problem with the forearm is not just that it's cut off, it's that it's so prominent in the foreground. That makes it proportionately bigger than the rest of her. It almost looks like it's someone else's hand holding the violin (Like a Hollywood shot to disguise the fact that the star can't play). Plus it's cut off.

She has a lovely face and a sweet expression. The composition is nice otherwise with the intersecting diagonals of the violin and the bow across the frame - but yeah, there's that big hand and wrist floating

Thanks Samy it is on Rte 1 at Conowingo. May try the TC-301 next time we go down there-I always seem to have better luck just cropping but I shall see how it does. Mostly just luck with MF and flying birds.

Monty, great B&W shot! I loved the bokeh and composition too.


Monty, wouldn't this shot with all those painted bottles look good in colour?
I know this shot was a "long time ago", I'm finding it hard to catch up. You guys are going faster than a freight plane.
