The creative fire.

As with yesterday’s post, this was photographed in live view to take advantage of the silent mode.  It really is silent (not just quiet).  I really like it but still prefer looking through an optical viewfinder.

Winter Blues.

This was photographed with the D850 resting on the floor and in live view, with the back LCD angled up for easy viewing.  In this mode, touching the screen will initiate autofocus and then the shutter will automatically release… silently.

It’s a well-known feature in the D850 but this is the first time I’ve tried it.

Many find Nikon‘s implementation of all this to be slow (relative to mirrorless cameras), but it’s quite usable for this sort of image.  It’s certainly useful in quiet venues where silent operation is desired.

However, I wouldn’t think of using it to photograph sports, flying monkeys, or the aerosolized droplets of a sneeze.

Ray of Light.

For the last few weeks I’ve been posting mostly B&W film images.  The feeble winter light here seems to paint every scene with moody and muted tones anyway, so why not just get rid of colour altogether?  However, even I get tired of that after a while so today I want to inject some colour into the proceedings.

Here then is an image from De Mello that was taken in early December, when the light was a little more plentiful.

Stop this train.

Another year passes — hope to see all of you on the other side of the finish line.
