New Lens!

April 26, 2009

My son had a photo shoot for a prom and needed a better lens so I bought a Nikkor 60mm macro lens.

Cool eh?

So, how good are the pics? Well, I’m glad you asked! Check these out!!

To fully appreciate the detail, you have to click on the image to view full size!

This is my monitor at the minimum focusing range:

The answer is: My foot. (Highlight area to the left to see the answer)

Tree buds:

dsc_1440a

Tree bark:

dsc_1448a

And some sea gulls:

dsc_1434a

dsc_1442a

dsc_1451a

Keep in mind that this is only a 60mm lens and not some telephoto!

Oh, and how did the photo shoot go? Pretty good, check out Christopher’s self-photo:

dsc_0326a

My best Raven pic yet.

dsc_0330a

An immature Bald Eagle stretching his wings.

dsc_0350a

Same eagle, different pose.

I got my T-mount in the mail and now I can use CJ’s 600-1200mm lens.

dsc_0364

This is the peak you see when you look down our street. I know, a bit out of focus.

dsc_0365

This would be looking at the bottom part of the picture above it and zoomed in all the way. It’s hard to focus with the camera zoomed in because it shakes quite a bit at this level of zoom and the tri-pod is old and cheap which makes it wobble more.

dsc_0368

A new sign in our neighborhood.

dsc_0369

Same sign, just zoomed in all the way. Notice that you can see the texture much better!

Now lets look at them at full resolution quality and cropped to one letter:

Amazing, eh?


Picture time (again!)

As you can see, I’ve been having some fun with my new Nikon D60!

It’s a picture that went wrong but it looks pretty interesting!

dsc_0040

A Woodpecker. Not sure which type.

dsc_0112

Anybody know what type this one is?

dsc_0126

I like this one!

dsc_0130

This one is pretty good too!

dsc_0132

The next two are from my Sony Cybershot. This is a rare January rainbow.

The picture just didn’t capture the colors and length of the sun ray.

I hope you enjoyed them! Let me know what you think.
