You never know what sleepers are out there or what camera will click with you. I may not keep it — my office is starting to look like an episode of “Hoarders” — but I really like shooting with it.
Aperture selection via the ISO and flash settings:
- 100 w/ flash — f/4
- 200 w/ flash — f/5.6
- 100 no flash — f/8
- 200 no flash — f/11
- 400 no flash — f/16
There was a lot of scanner noise (got a CD with processing) so this shot has heavy noise reduction and a small exposure boost in Photoshop.
The nice thing about a wide-angle lens (35mm) is you get decent depth of field, even with a large aperture. I like this shot better than the one in the video. Instead of looking down on the flowers, they lead you back into the forest.
The reflections in his eyes and on the floor (probably cat litter from his feet) have the diamond shape of the aperture.
Some noise reduction on this one. Also, I clone-stamped in Photoshop to remove cat barf I hadn’t noticed when I took the picture.
I sold this camera but here’s what it looked like.
