It’s about to get a whole lot hotter here.

Baseball Season (almost).

I put this together to distribute to the baseball teams I will be photographing this year.

(Looking forward to it!)

On a related note, if anyone knows of a good (i.e. polished, but easy to use) web platform for distributing high resolution images to clients, I’d appreciate your input.

Morning Honey.

Honey, and the first few rays of sunlight on a quiet Sunday morning.

Nikon 50mm 1.8 E vs. S.

Like the title says, I’m comparing the 40 year old Nikon 50/1.8 Series E AIS lens with the new Nikon 50mm 1.8S lens.

Wide open, there’s no contest: the 50/1.8S trounces the E (you’ll have to take my word for it).

At f/2.8, however, the differences are less obvious.

WARNINGThis is not a scientific comparison.  This is me sharing something with you for free that might be worth absolutely nothing to you.  Or it may change your life.  We can only say with certainty in retrospect.

Below you will find two similar but uninteresting images taken under horrible lighting.

Technical:

  • f/2.8
  • 1/125
  • ISO 1250
  • Camera used: Nikon Z7

The 50/1.8S is technically the better lens, for 10x the price.  The 50/1.8E is easier to carry around.

Thanks for looking.

A little bit of colour, after all the recent B&W.

Saturday.

Yes, this is from the test roll I mentioned in yesterday’s post.

First time I’ve used the Nikon FM2N (+ 50mm 1/1.8)).

I like this camera, and the lens.

Miles Davis – Kind of Blue.

I just bought the LP of this legendary album, but I don’t have a record player.

Every time I photograph with film, this is the soundtrack that’s playing in my mind.

Damn, if this isn’t the best looking camera currently in production…
