Drink and Click NYC538********************UPDATE NUMERO ONE!************************** WE'RE MEETING AT THE 23RD STREET ENTRANCE TO THE HIGHLINE ********************************************************************** So Clickers... Let's try this again. The plan is thus, we hit up the High Line and set up an impromptu portrait shoot. We fashion watch, we look for interesting characters, we grab them and photograph them.

Afterwards we go to Bill's Bar and Burger in the Meatpacking District for some food and libations and wander around the District looking for more characters (this time putting our on/off camera flash skills to the test). For those of you who are less into people, the views from the High Line are incredible (as you know) and the streets in the District are superb (also as you know).

I faded out from G+ quite a while back.  Spending some time with people from this community this weekend has me taking a renewed look at my online presence on G+.

Of course, after so long inactive, I have to assume I've fallen off their algorithms for visibility.

Already posted previously, but I think that was before the entry categories were up.  So apologies for the repeat.

G+ Photowalks have been, for me, both about capturing moments, and seeing what others who walked the same steps capture, and how what they see is sometimes very different from what I see.

But they're also about meeting new people, which I did, and so included two new people I met alongside the moments caught.

It was a day of seeing old friends, and meeting new ones; of long walks in the blazing sun, cursing my stupidity for leaving the house, and of sharing laughter.

The day wound down with the magnificent fortune of the sun setting between the WTC tower and the Gehry building (the two, together, being eerily reminiscent of the twin towers).

The sights and moments of photography were always a delight, but nothing in comparison to the company of kindred spirits.

Spirits I met via G+.  G+, I salute you.

Fertility

I've been down with and then recovering from a nasty cold that settled into my lungs, so missed last week's #macromonday .  So, here is my submission for last week (TEXTURES) and this week (FOOD).

Starring +Kelli Seeger Kim +Jennifer Eden and +Kerry Murphy.

This wasn't my original intent, but as soon as I cropped it, it was clearly Fertility.

(though my wife, from across the room, said "zit, and rather disgusting as well")

It was a mighty good taste combination, too.

Talk to Me

This week's submission for #macromonday  (by +Kelli Seeger Kim +Jennifer Eden +Kerry Murphy) with the theme of "Something You Would Find in a Home Office".

While it's unlikely you would find this in any modern home office, you might have found this a long time ago.

D700 with 105mm VR, tripod and flash and trigger, about 12" focal distance (sensor to object).  5 exp. HDR (HDR Efex Pro 2) and then B&W conversion (Silver Efex Pro).

I may have to post some of my other shots for this.  I tried out several different poses before deciding on this one.

I'd been really looking forward to the D600 as an affordable and more reasonable upgrade from my trusty D700.

Then I saw this on the Nikon site specs:

2 or 3 frames in steps of 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 1 or 2 EV

Compared to for the D700:  2 to 9 frames in steps of 1/3, 1/2, 2/3 or 1 EV.

As someone who shoots primarily HDR, that's big.

Sure, 2 EV steps are a welcome change, but having a maximum range of -2 to +2 in 3 exposures (risking banding) instead of potentially -4 to +4 (though the use for that much is limited) is troubling.

I usually shoot 5 exp. in 1 EV steps for -2 to +2, but its still smaller steps per exposure.  Having fewer exposures, to me at least, really is just a bonus for high motion situations, where you want to be shooting for as little time as possible (and the D700 + grip handles that very well except in the dark).  Andth... more »

And that is a problem.  The top shutter speed of 1/4000 is also a problem for the darkest exposure of a bracket, but wasn't a dealbreaker.  But the max of 3 exposures is.

So I guess it's the venerable D700 as primary and the perky D3200 as second body and video, at least until I've saved up for a D4.

Resharing for the morning folks, and because posting it at 1am, when I finally finished it, probably limited the audience.

"Shadows of the Past"

This work has been sitting around in my mind for about a year, ever since I found an old photograph of the North Tower taken about 16 years ago.

I present it here, today, in memory of what once was, and what will be.

"Reincarnation"

I'd originally named this one "Resurrection" but, being an old gamer, it dawned on my that the reborn one isn't the same as the original, hence the change in title.

A few more will dribble in over the days, but now I need to sleep.

"In the Shadow of Shade"

I think, technically, this is not a macro, though it does keep with this week's theme for #macromonday  of LEAF (curated by +Kelli Seeger Kim, +Kerry Murphy, +Jennifer Eden)

In an urban environment, there aren't always leaves to get up close to that also are more than just a leaf.  At least not that I found, today.

"Torn"

This week's #macromonday  theme of ABSTRACT inspired this exercise from me.

D700 with 105mm VR, tripod w/ RRS BH-40 ballhead, LiveView for manual focus precision.  Cable release.  5 exposure HDR processed in HDR Efex 2 and then cropped in LR.

Curated by +Kelli Seeger Kim +Jennifer Eden +Kerry Murphy 

This is pretty far afield from my normal style of shooting.  But I used some techniques I don't normally use, which was both fun and educational.

"Knowing No Bounds"

I think this may be the first time I put something in for Macro Monday.  The theme of EMOTION got me thinking -- what would capture emotion for me.

My son and I call this a "hand hug".

It's been about eight or nine months since I was active on G+, but I think it's about time I changed that.

Alas, a day late to learn about an photowalk near where I shot these.  Just my luck.

Okay...as landscape photographer, the D800E (lacking the AA filter) makes a bit of sense, though I'm still fuzzy on what impact shooting at high aperture would have to that.

As a cityscape photographer, the D800 makes more sense, due to the oft-repeating patterns in bricks.

And I'm still completely unclear on whether moire is an issue for video, which would have to be one of my criteria for upgrading from a D700.

Insights, anyone?

These seven images are the AE bracket used for the HDR processing to create the base image posted previously.

The first one is the "base" exposure, that I tried to set up to expose the trees without losing too much of the sky into white blobbiness.

None of these images individually is all that good. Sure, the trees are colorful, but the sky is washed out. Yet together, they create something so much closer to what I saw with my meat eyes.

This is why I shoot HDR.

A reprocessing of what is easily my best shot from 2011 for the #PlusOneCollection by +Ivan Makarov.

This was originally taken on a photowalk looking for Central Park foliage I did in November with some photographer friends I've made through G+.

This shot itself is a 7 exposure HDR processed with #Nik tools (HDR Efex, Color Efex, Viveza -- this is the pre-sharpened shot, so not Sharpener).

It's a slightly different crop than what I posted in November, and the processing is likely similar, but certainly different (since I didn't write it down). I made a deliberate choice to cool off the entire image and then warm up the foliage. The original processing was grey clouds and these have a bluer hint.

For good or ill, though, this is the final product, and what I humbly submit for the Plus One Collection project.___

Bah, humbug!

I've been using two monitors for a few years now. It's great! I have one in landscape (my "main" monitor) and one in portrait to the right.

The one on the right is primarily for browsing and Acrobat -- generally thing that would benefit from tall rather than wide.

It's also handy for Lightroom having the second monitor, especially for portrait shots where they get all small on the landscape monitor.

For some oddball reason, Windows has the monitor plugged into Port 1 on the video card as Display #2 and the monitor plugged into Port 2 as Display #1 (swapping ports doesn't change the numbers, either). To my slight annoyance, the landscape/main monitor is 2 and the portrait/secondary is 1. Not that it really matters. LR happily will use display #1 for the secondary display... more »

Lightroom and Multiple Monitors

Bah, humbug!

I've been using two monitors for a few years now. It's great! I have one in landscape (my "main" monitor) and one in portrait to the right.

The one on the right is primarily for browsing and Acrobat -- generally thing that would benefit from tall rather than wide.

It's also handy for Lightroom having the second monitor, especially for portrait shots where they get all small on the landscape monitor.

For some oddball reason, Windows has the monitor plugged into Port 1 on the video card as Display #2 and the monitor plugged into Port 2 as Display #1 (swapping ports doesn't change the numbers, either). To my slight annoyance, the landscape/main monitor is 2 and the portrait/secondary is 1. Not that it really matters. LR happily will use display #1 for the secondary display when I have the main in display #2.

So far, so good...until this week, when I dropped a second video card into my system and expanded to three monitors (eventually going to four).

The new monitor comes up as display #3.

And Lightroom seems to use the simple logic of:

If there are only two monitors, put the secondary display on the other one
else, put it on the current one plus 1 (unless the main is on 3, then it puts it on 1).

Which is deeply annoying, because I want the main on 2 and the secondary on 1.

I'm hoping that in the next version of Lightroom, Adobe makes the secondary display selectable from a list, rather than a stupid hardcoded behavior.

Until then, I have a messy workaround that is nigh unusable: Move LR to display #3, which puts the secondary on #1, and then use a DisplayFusion hotkey to move the LR main window to display #2. Then the secondary remains on #1 until I make any other window active and then go back to LR, at which point it moves. Yuk.

Maybe someone with a smidge of influence with the LR team will read this. I can always hope.___

This looks nifty and bears some further research! Switching to a Wacom tablet and pen was a huge efficiency increase over using the mouse for tracing and brushwork. And now knobs over mouse for rampant sliders. There is a huge potential of productivity improvement here!

Using MIDI equipment with Lightroom ... who would have thought?___This looks nifty and bears some further research!

I am by no means an activist by nature. I'm closer to stodgy and boring.

But there seems to be a growing behavior that police can and will say and do anything they want, without fear of repercussions.

And the people who went from living in a model free society to living in fear of their police really need to stand up and do something about that (do something as in non-violent reminders that police serve and protect, not beat up and spray).

No one should be picking fights with people who have guns, especially of those people are getting out of control.

A few more from the #NYCPhotowalkers photowalk.

I can't post too many at a time. The foliage was fine, but processing colorful leaves gets old fast and good shots start to look boring and repetitive. I probably have a few more I'll put up, when I can look at orange trees again.
