You can do a lot on the cheap these days. I use USB powered ring lights and an Anker USB battery "brick" that can go anywhere. Of course it has distance limitations but for things like Jim is doing in the kitchen and for my fishing flys and up close stuff it is great.

Mark that spot. I want to shoot that with 4x5 film next time up to visit

Great shot Leighton! Classic Shenandoah that I remember from road trips as a kid

Thanks, I know exactly where it is, I've shot it a few times through the years. Come on up and we'll make a day of it.

In fact, you can't tell, but just on the other side of the little hill to the right of the house is the main road from my house into Staunton.

This is a gorgeous scene and exactly how I envision the Shenandoah Valley. I've ridden most of Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park, but have never seen what it looks like. Let me explain. Several years ago, my wife and I planned a trip to ride Skyline Drive through the Park starting at the top and riding South. We would continue on the Blue Ridge Parkway all the way back to Cherokee, North Carolina. We took the interstate up to Front Royal and spent the night. We got up the next morning to begin our journey only to find out that fog had set in and it was so thick that you couldn't see more than maybe 50-75 yards. We got on Skyline Drive and began our drive sure that the fog would burn off by midday. Boy, were we wrong!

By 10:00, it started raining. It was rainy and foggy the entire time we were on Skyline Drive. I am not exaggerating when I tell you that we never saw anything that was more than a few feet off the road. The weather didn't clear until we were on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Even so, we had a great trip and will try again someday.

Yeah, I thought so too, and after getting the one Dean suggested for the essential film holder (about the size of a ipad mini) I added this one as well...Nothing existed like this when I was purchasing all my existing lighting equipment. Seems prices have gone up a bit from when I got them. For image quality I still prefer soft-boxes, grids, barn doors, strip lights, scrims, and reflectors. However, I haven't explored modifiers for these rechargeable lights.

Appreciate it. Iíve come to realize any deficiencies in sharpness with this older glass (Series E 28mm withstanding) is my processing, not the lens!

"Purple Clematis" aka "Mountain Clematis" (Clematis occidentalis) is blooming in the mountains behind my house.

Here is an early evening shot with my Df with my 55mm f2.8 micro-NIKKOR. I had to push the ISO to 800 due to the approaching evening darkness and to get a fast enough shutter speed, but the Df handles it with aplomb! I had hoped to do a focus stack at f4, but these are so delicate, even the slightest breeze sets them in motion, so went with f8 to get it all in one frame. This bunch of flowers on this vine were wrapped around a branch of a small fir well in front of anything behind, so maybe f4 would not have offered better "isolation".

Shooting with the hint of mist on the leaves, not to mention the toning, makes the image.

Thanks Scott. That was a good plan your wife and you had, sorry it didn't turn out. Sometimes, the top of the mountains will stay in cloud cover all day, while the valley is as sunny as ever. My only advice if you want to do again is to go in the middle of the week. The weekends can be a zoo.

Thanks for the link. I don't do much shooting with artificial light, but these would work great in a studio set up.

I like the wildness of this setting. I can imagine it is very difficult to capture these without a hint of a breeze. Yes, Spring is great!

So the brown and white cow says to the other "I think that guy is using Nikon manual focus glass." The other replies, "We had better smile".

and the white/brown cow retorts, "Knock yourselves out guys, I'm just here to graze." as he refuses to pose.

I love the picture.

I think the follow on conversation was about where the guy in the blue shirt is at?
