Post Your Photos (and lens/processing info)

Here we own one of the best still cameras in the world, yet we don't tend to post stills or talk about them. I'm starting this thread for this purpose.

Keep in mind that this is not PhotoBucket. The idea is that we should only post photos that give insight into camera operation, lenses, and processing. We don't need full size, full res photos for that, scaled or cropped images will do.

Here's my contribution... Last night I shot a photo of our cat, Figaro. His black fur makes him nearly impossible to shoot well with cheapo cameras.

Lighting: Four ceiling-mounted lights were on, surrounding the subject. The ceiling is two stories above the floor.
Lens: Nikon 85mm f/1.8 AF on Photodiox Pro adapter.
Operation: Full manual, using Live View Exposure Simulation. Handheld.
Focus: Manual, using 10x magnification
Settings: f/1.8, 1/30, 6400 ISO, custom WB.
Processing from RAW: Dropped the contrast slightly. Boosted the saturation. Cranked sharpness all the way to make up for slight focus/motion blur. The image is scaled, not cropped.

Using a Nikon lens this way for a photo was REALLY slow. Auto-focus, shutter priority, and IS would have really helped. A tripod wasn't reasonable, as the cat was pretty feisty and rarely stayed in one place.

The bokeh of this lens is pretty poor on the details of the gold couch pillow. Aside from that I'm happy with the lens. If I could manually set the aperture of lenses in video mode, I would definitely choose Canon lenses.

Thanks David,

Although people have commented on other sites that the camera is not suitable for birds in flight, because of the slow continuous mode. Personally I love the camera.

Another shot from the typhoon shelter with Canon 400 f5.6 lens, this time a Black kite

I shot this photo at the local podunk airport with a Nikon 85mm f/1.8 AF. I show two versions. One is processed only with the Canon software (contrast lowered, saturation and sharpness boosted.) The other is "Ortonized" - a process that uses multiple layers and only blurs the darks. You might need to click the photos to compare at a larger size.

In Photoshop, you make a layer from the background, then duplicate it. Set the top layer's blending mode to "screen" which brightens the picture. Next, merge it down. Duplicate your merged layer, and set the blending mode to "multiply", which will darken the result. Now apply about 20 pixels of Gaussian blur to the top layer. Boom. Ortonized.

You can do the same with Vegas. Open a project and add some video to a track. Duplicate the layer. Set the top layer's blending mode to "screen". Save the project. Open a new project. Place your previous project on a timeline track, nesting it. Duplicate the layer. Set the top layer's blending mode to "multiply". Add a Gaussian blur effect to the top layer and adjust to taste.

The effect looks better on some scenes than others. Anyway, it's something to play with...

Here's another photo shot with the same lens, indoors, wide open - and tweaked with the same process.

Peer, Yes, wild, and aggressive. They eat the lot, chasing competitors off, large or small. The Kookaburra (Very Large) shuts them up however.
