Unfortunately, the pump was not blurred as I was hopping.

Taken with my new toy - the DFA 100mm Macro WR - I've not done any macro with it but it's still getting plenty of use!

impromptu portraiture

We took a vacation and visited out daughter. I didn't bring a lot of gear with me, expecting to shoot landscapes and a few family snapshots. The day we arrived our daughter said "Dad, I need a headshot, today."

Portrait photography is not my strong suit to being with. But I had little of the gear I would have wanted at hand. No suitable backdrop inside her home, no reflectors to work with fairly harsh natural light outside. What do I have?

The final combo was a shady area behind the garage with a little distance to foliage in the next yard, K-30, KA 50mm-f/1.7, built-in flash in wireless mode, Sigma EF-610 DG Super flash - off camera, wireless slave handheld by my spouse.

Since I didn't have any post-process gear with me, I shot RAW+, knowing I would have to give her an out of the camera jpeg and perhaps have an opportunity to give her a tweaked version later. It took a few test shots, but under the circumstances I don't think we did too badly-

3/15 birds

Kind of a dank day yesterday, so I took some out the window shots of birds coming to the feeder, using the DAL 55-300 lens

I bought my copy of this lens used. When I mounted it on my (then) K-r and took a couple test shots through the window I thought I had a bad lens. I live in a 110 year old house and much of the glass is original. What I didn't notice with my eyes, but caught VERY well at 300mm was how much distortion the window glass was adding to the image - even at a foot away from the glass and near infinity focus.

The lens worked MUCH better outside my house.
