Nikon 105mm 2.8 Macro Refresher

Recently I spent a few days reacquainting myself with my Nikon 105mm 2.8D. In another of my post we35 moments, I felt I needed to use this lens again. You see I love macro photography, getting up close pulling out the details, I always find it fascinating. During the we35 project, I put on a closeup filter on my 35mm lens and was only slightly entertained.  While I worked with many macro lenses the Nikon 105 mm 2.8 D just had that special something that just made it special for me that only a few lenses can measure up to.

Nikkor 28-80 3.5-5.6 G It’s old light, nimble and flexible.

It was a quiet time, out here exploring the frontier. The weather was hinting at spring, and I was out with an old friend. It was the second lens I bought for my Nikon D90 and old Nikkor 28-80 3.5-5.6 G. I bought this lens because the first kit lens I owned, a Nikon 18-105 G, the kit lens for the D90, was a tragic piece of shit. The 28-80, a kit lens for some Nikon film cameras, with positive reviews, was a better option for the d90 and at ~$60 at the time well worth the risk. I had not used this lens in a long time, I out it down long before I started the we35 project, and lately it seemed like a good time to put it on the Nikon D750.

Meanwhile on Instagram: Smegging hell things did not go Sideways

It was a crazy week in my world. I thought it would tear me up, for a second there. Because of others indecisions, chaos was approaching. I and those I work with were preparing for the worse. In the end, though, things did not go sideways. An agreement was made and we were left with less of a mess to clean up. All this led up to some interesting camera work. You Can follow me here to see more

Meanwhile on Instagram : Prepping For Things To Go Very Very Sideways

It was a busy week for me, exploring the frontier. There was more camera work than usual, lately, with a bit of travel through the New Jersey. Between press conferences and other logistic type work I was making an effort to accomplish something, anything that would make the forthcoming times just a bit easier to tolerate. With “issues” falling apart, people around me were prepping for the worse. Me I was just doing my job, but with my camera with me at all times. It’s basically all I can do at the moment before things go sideways. You Can follow me here to see more

24mm, A focal length I lusted after?

If there was one thing I learned to love when refining my photo wandering, was that I loved a wide angle. Early on, in my current photography life, around 2010, I got to test a 24mm lens. I sort of fell in lust with it. It was a Nikon 24mm 1.4 G, a beautiful loaner. My time with it stuck with me always. Fast forward to about 2014 I finally got around to buying a 24mm 2.8D, a much lower cost beautiful lens, which I used heavily till the We35 project.
