Thank you very much! I tried to use the best ISO, max aperture, plus shutter speed when possible, but I think i should work on my reaction more now! it was kind of my first attempt at this, and I also skipped my tripod, for no reason other than being lazy! Thanks again for the comments, and the translation, pretty cool!

I have the EXIF info.

Additional info (show less)

Settings: 1/125 /16
ISO 250

85 mm

I think a good rule for action sport photography is to start with the shutterspeed and then adjust aperture and ISO accordingly. I read somewhere that in order to freeze soccer action with kids, you would need a shutterspeed of at least 1/400. At those speeds, and with your 85mm lens you would not need a tripod, that would only limit your movement.

Glad I have found something in the color spot that gives pleasure.

I'm of the same mind as you. Don't normally like them.

But I was playing around, and I thought it actually looked ok

So thank for the compliment

Steve

Oh, I see! I assumed that only applied to AF lenses! I think I will crank the ISO on my D800 a little higher as well, even though it was super sunny that day, I think I would still need to do so? Thanks again!

I was going to suggest the same Americo (I hope I am remembering your name properly). I tried something new over the weekend (after talking to the folks here) and I set my aperture and speed manually and let the camera pick ISO. My early results are quite positive and would suggest the same to you. Since I was in bright sunlight and wanted to eliminate any shake induced blur with the focal length I was using (500/8), I set my min shutter speed to 1/800 (in the ISO settings), set my camera to 1/1000, aperture is fixed at f/8, and let the camera adjust itself. Most of the shots came out right or close. I would suggest you follow Bert's advice of a minimum of 1/400 on the shutter, but consider going faster, and let the camera choose ISO. The D800 has so much dynamic range and low noise, you should be able to shoot ISO 1250 without any appreciable noise in the shots (if needed). In this case, a tripod would probably slow you down. A monopod may be helpful though. I have come to LOVE my monopod.

That is one sedate dragonfly to allow you to get so close with the Distagon!

For some reason that shot he,Ronny _Olsson, made with the 21mm Zeiss, makes me wonder what the results would be like with a reverse macro shot! lol!

photos are taken at the closest focusing distance about 22cm from the focus plan .. could almost touch the dragonfly with the lens hood .. used f5.6
And yes it was sedate .. He probably wanted to be photographed

Americo --

To the best of my recollection those dolls have been a fixture of Clarion Alley for a few years now. They've got some company in the form of these guys too:



D600 * 20/4 AI * f/11 * ISO 560 * 1/100th

Ratty mouse:

Slightly off topic, but I recommend this book to you: The Shanghai Factor, by Charles McCarry.

Apart from the obvious, being a expat in China, the book is very well written and suspenseful. Modern leCarre. I am just winding up the Kindle version on my ipad, or I would send it to you. Anyway, check it out!

I'm a great fan of LeCarre and have definitely enjoyed Charles McCarry's fiction. This is a new release. Thanks for the heads up. My reading is sporadic and seems to wander from genre to genre but espionage fiction has always intrigued me. I just ordered it from my local library...

Wow....did not expect a book recommendation in this thread! Thanks. I shall look into that. I just bought a Kindle for my wife. We should have it in hand in a few weeks so that might be my book to try out with this new device.

I came across a pow-wow today. Grabbed some shots with the 105/2.5. I'm not sure how I feel about this lens, it feels so tight. So does 85mm. Pretty much anything over my 55 feels too long. But sometimes you can't or shouldn't get closer.

I'll share one for now, have a few more worth posting but I'll save em for tomorrow. Also took some shots with the x100s. I've only gone through and edited a handful, full size stuff is up on flickr if you're interested.

A close up from the weekend. Full stack of Vivitar tubes and the trusty 80-200/4.5. A full stack with the 80-200/4.5 isn't very tight, the whole thing flexed... Only color correction and cropping on this.

The bud is about 1cm in diameter.
