So I’ve been shooting a little with Regina’s dad’s old lens from an SLR, a Nikkor-S Auto 50mm f/1.4. The auto focus doesn’t work on my digital camera and so I have to do everything manual. When i get the settings right, i.e. not over/under exposing and focusing correctly, the pictures turn out amazing!
Check out the pictures from Regina’s food blog.
Andrew and Angel invited me to volunteer at a fundraiser for the MPSC. It was 1920′s young supporters event with celebrity bartender, David Plant of Pravda. I checked coats all evening with Jack, Audrey, Andrea, and Jenny. It was kinda hectic organizing coats when we ran out of space, but I’m glad everyone got their stuff back. =P
Here are some pictures from the night using Regina’s dad’s lens.
I think for everyday purposes i prefer to shoot with Andrew’s lens, the 18-200mm, because it’s so versatile. But when it comes to taking pictures of things that are stationary and need more of a macro feel it, I gotta go with the 50mm 1.4.
(Does anyone remember that old Power Rangers knock off ‘VR troopers’? I think it starred one of the Lawrence brothers)
I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the use of my friend’s lens, the 18-200mm 3.5 VR. I’ve appreciated the depth of field that this lens can produce, the ability to zoom so far away, and the VR ‘Vibration Reduction’ has helped in low lighting situations. Here are some of the pictures of the past weekend.
I vote Ernie for president of the US.
I passed through Grand Central on the way back home from the office.
I took this picture in the morning from my bedroom. I like the X’s.
Andrew lent me his awesome lens for a little bit. It’s a Nikon 18-200mm VR. Regina is showcasing Andrew’s new ipod.
Yesiree, there’s a farm in Queens. It’s not a huge farm which is probably why i’ve never heard of it, but nevertheless it is a farm. Regina led a few of us on a October’s food adventure to Floral Park where we had pumpkin pie, apple babies, and fried fish.
A few months ago i downloaded some actions but never really tried them out. Below are the results of a few experiments. They’re good for batch processing i guess. If you have any that you like, please let me know! =D
I took these pictures two weeks ago from the staten island ferry.
