Sorry for the lack of updates last week. Got busy in the first half of the week and then got sick in the latter half. Hoping I’ll be good for a while, will be gone Friday through Monday though.

I’d like to finish my discussion of depth of field and also give my opinion on something not photography or wine related soon.

Depth of Field vs. Aperture

Filed under: gear, photography — cronozero @ 10:33 am

Hey everyone. This post is something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I will be demonstrating the effect of changing aperture on depth of field. Because of the many big pictures in the post, I will be ending the summary right here. Be sure to click through to see the demonstration!

Kodachrome Intervention and What’s Coming Tomorrow

Filed under: photography — cronozero @ 10:28 pm

Hey all, sorry for the late update. Here’s a break from the old Monte Diablo photos with a new one from the Christmas holiday season (I just got these back from scanning at Precision Camera in Austin, TX after getting them developed at Dwayne’s) on Kodachrome:

RIP Kodachrome

I can tell right now that the compression is messing this photo up and it’s much sharper on my computer, and especially as a slide transparency. Actually, that’s true for all of the photos I’m putting up here. Only like quarter realized how big of a difference it is before. Anyway, a flower for Kodachrome, RIP.

EXIF data:
Camera: Canon EOS 3
Lens: Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro
ISO: 64 (exposed as ISO 80)
Media: 35mm Kodachrome 64
Aperture and Shutter speed: Dunno

I know this photo violates the rule of thirds. I don’t care, haha. Probably better as a square format, but whatever, I’m lazy and already posted this.

I’m working on a depth of field vs aperture post. It should be up tomorrow.

Distant Sunset

Sorry for the lack of update yesterday. Big snafu with trying to get transportation from my roommates since my car is (and will be for the foreseeable future) in the shop.

Kodachrome finally got back from the scanners yesterday! On a related note, found out that Etelvina (my Carl Zeiss Ikon rangefinder) doesn’t always take up film even when I think it does. I just wish it didn’t take me like 12 rolls of film (including 8 of Kodachrome) to figure that out. Oh well.

Won’t be getting the Fujifilm X100 for now. Can’t afford a fun purchase for a while.
