  • No help on a link but a fantastic idea for shooting the growth of one's child. Simple lighting set-up that can easily be repeatable year after year in different locations. And then compositing them ...
  • I had a vision when planning my trip to Machu Picchu to shoot it differently. A few weeks before my trip I found a used IR converted Olympus Pen E-PL3. BIngo. This would be perfect for creating a ...
  • Replied in Infra-red
    I got a bargain price for an already converted camera. They don't come up often but IR seems to be a passing fad. Someone tries it and moves on and sells. I have a Nikon D70 IR camera I'm going to ...
  • Replied in Infra-red
    Maggie. Not really. Pointed towards the sun the flare showed up pretty bad but otherwise, it worked well. cheers wembley
  • Replied in Infra-red
    I started with IR film many many years ago and have always loved it. Of course, digital IR is a lot more convenient than loading and unloading film in a black bag. I'm in Florida so sunny days and ...
  • Replied in Infra-red
    I bought it used but LifePixel did the conversion. cheers wembley
  • Created discussion thread Infra-red
    To complete my travel kit conversion fro DSLR to M43 I just picked up an Olympus Pen 3 converted to IR so I went and played with it today. Cheers Wembley
  • Is this better pop? Also not resized so should see the sharpness and the 2nd image is a 100% crop to see the sharpness. 100% crop to show sharpness. cheers wembley
  • I think you missed this reply when you posted. Softness concerns. I think in the 1st image its a combination of a few factors. Maybe a little overly aggressive skin softening (yeah it was a Nik ...
  • Thanks for the responses. This was my 1st time shooting the 400m for portraits. I actually had been shooting birds at this location several years ago and my son was with me skimboarding. I remember ...
  • Been busy this past week. Thanks for the responses. Subject isolation and background compression. Interesting there is a differing viewpoint on this. I'm a shallow DOF shooter. Sports and nature ...
  • Created discussion thread Swimsuit sunset shots (non 400mm)
    We shot quite a few looks and lens combinations on this shoot. I got my 400mm f2.8 shots during the crummy light but used my usual 70-200 as we shot during a beautiful sunset. 1st time out with ...
  • Created discussion thread 400mm swimsuit shots
    I have been wanting to use the 400 f2.8 for some portrait/swimsuit shots for a long time after using it for sport and wildlife with the creamy smooth background bokeh. So I did last week. Middle of ...
  • thanks for the thoughts. It was her last photoshoot with me. She was such a photogenic subject. The post did have a purpose though. 1. focus stacking on subjects that move. Worked fine in a static ...
  • No, apparently she had more on her mind. We found out 2 days later she had extensive cancer and tonight she passed. Heartbroken. :-(
  • Created discussion thread GX85 focus stack experiment
    I have a project in mind using focus stacking so wanted to learn what to expect from it in the GX85. Used on a live subject and an Olympus 45 f1.8. I'm pretty happy with the result of this down and ...
  • I like the images but have a few thoughts fwiw. I don't mind the skin smoothing but with the shots with hands it emphasizes the amount of skin smoothing in the face. They seem too far apart in ...
  • Created discussion thread GX85 travels again
    I had another short trip with my GX85 travel set-up. This one was US West coast based. Here is a link to my Germany, Belgium, Croatia trip. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4184094 And then ...
  • I had been so busy doing basic processing for images from my Switzerland trip I didn't really consider that they'd be perfect for B+W. So here is my 1st ever contribution to this thread. cheers wembley
  • No i'm not having blown highlight issues. Not sure where you are seeing them? Here is the snow pano (in camera pano) in LR and it shows no overblown highlights and has footprint details in the ...
