    Happy New Year, everyone!

    Just went on a short birding trip over the weekend. Here's a pretty Eastern Towhee bird that decided to show himself. Now that I'm looking at the final picture, he kinda reminds me of Angry Birds, the game. :)

    Been a while since I posted at HardForum. Sooooo many great shots in the 2017 and now 2018 thread.! I’m still experimenting with stuff, I love making new mistakes.

    I’m a Kickstarter “super backer”, I will fund stuff that looks interesting from awesome folks I want to see succeed, regardless of if I will ever use it myself. One that WAS of personal interest was the Foldio system, which I finally just got in. These might be boring in a ‘general photography’ way (sorry!) but it’s fascinating to me to try to recreate some of the looks I see in catalogs.

    In other words:

    but this is fun! Testing out on some new Benchmade, Kershaw and Buck pocket knives I have been testing out.

    The results aren't bad for not knowing wtf I'm doing =)

    DUST IS THE ENGMY!!!!! Also note that my 24-70 is out of alignment, so if the left edge is blurry, that is why. It's going back to Nikon soon.

    Next attempt I will add focus stacking to the mix.

    ^^ Those look like professional product photos. Well done.

    And here’s one from the iPhone 8 Plus this morning:

    I'm not sure how much post-processing I should do with this tricolored heron... Seems a bit washed out but not too bad I guess for bright sunlight.

    Nice, wish I could have gone. Was in Detroit this week, but guess it wasn't public show week :(. Was out trying to help with some issues on the Q-Line. Snapped a few pics with my phone.

    I've set a goal for myself to use telephoto lenses more for scenic/landscape shots. To that end, here's a pano (4-image) @ 200mm.
