eBay Watch: Super Farron 76mm F/0.87 Lens

Super Farron 76mm F/0.87 Lens Auction eBay Watch

Recently, a new zoom lens was announced with a maximum aperture of F/4. One of the commenters remarked, “F/4? What a waste of time. Call me when they hit F/2.” This 76mm F/0.87 Super Farron prime lens is probably right up that guy’s alley.

The lens is currently listed at $20,000, which seems like an awful lot, but it’s a pretty nifty piece of kit. The lens itself requires a camera with an extremely short flange distance if you want to get full coverage and also focus to infinity, but poking around on the web, I’ve found a few people who have successfully adapted a lens like this to an Micro Four Thirds camera.

As you might expect, shooting this lens wide open is likely very challenging. The depth of field is insanely shallow and the lens itself isn’t exactly designed for pixel peeping fine art photographers. It was built mostly to operate in an industrial capacity.

There are a ton of interesting old lenses out there like this that can be hacked to work on current cameras and it’s always fascinating to me to see the results. Sure, I’m a sucker for the insane sharpness of modern lenses, but a dreamy photo taken with a wildly inappropriate lens certainly has its appeal.

Mentor Series: California 2015

The California Mentor Trek opened with introductions and setting of expectations for the next few days. David Tejada, our Mentor, had put together a slide show highlighting images from the many different areas that we would be visiting. David let us know what time we would be there and what to expect from each location with a focus on lighting, lens selection, etc.

After this introduction we broke for lunch and the headed to our first location, the Golden Gate Bridge! Weather and Clouds were perfect for our views of the Golden Gate Bridge. We were able to photographed this iconic landmark from many different vantage points that included: Baker Beach, Fort Point National Historic Site, Battery East, Golden Gate Vista Point and for sunset we shot from the Marin Headlands. This was where learned about “Fn button 5” which Nikon had installed on David’s camera. It sure made great bridge photos easy.

The next day we headed to Muir Woods where the light was slightly overcast and that allowed us to enjoy the even light on the majestic trees as we walked around a nice loop trail. After lunch and checking into our new hotel in Monterey, we had our first review with David and all learned how to “see better” for later photo opportunities on the trek. Afterwards we drove to Julia Pfieffer Beach State Park to photograph McWay Falls. On the drive back we pulled off at the iconic Bixby Bridge for sunset and the bridge at night.

Point Lobos was next and we spent some time at the Whalers Cabin just as the park opened and also took our group photo there. The rest of our time there was spent on our own taking photographs of the surf, wildflowers, shells, rocks, trees, sea otters and deer.

After more critiques and lunch we made a quick visit to the Carmel Mission. We then travelled south along Hwy 1 for a nice hike at Garrapata Beach SP near Soberanes Point. The Mentor Series chose a beautiful hiking trail that takes you along the Pacific where the wildflowers are blooming and set against rock formations with the waves crashing into them. From there we traveled further south to see the Point Sur Lighthouse as the clouds were breaking up. The evening sunset was spent at Garrapata Beach also at Garrapata SP, photographing the Pacific and some incredible rock formations.

After a very full day of photography we readied our images for our final critique and the group slideshow. The final slideshow was very interesting due to each participant’s different vision. It was amazing to see how each of us “saw” all of the different areas from different artistic perspectives and came away with startling different photographs of the same area. Each had their own unique vision that benefited from David’s critiques given each day.

Afterwards we boarded the bus for the drive back to the SFO airport, said our goodbyes and hoped we would see each other on later Mentor Series trips.

How-To: Bring Out Freckles In a Portrait Photo Using Photoshop or Lightroom

http://cf.c.ooyala.com/Zqb2Z4dTofVkST89ig9QQDJoBO3mb_4J/Ut_HKthATH4eww8X4xMDoxOjBzMTt2bJ

I have been a relatively freckly person for my entire life. Now, I have passed that trait onto my daughter. I never liked my own freckles, but hers seem downright adorable, so I recently posted a photo of her on social media using a technique that emphasizes those little reddish brown dots she has around her nose and several folks asked me how I did it. Here’s how.

The answer actually goes back to an old film photography technique. When you’re shooting black-and-white film, you could put different colored filters over the front of the lens and it could drastically change the appearance of the resulting photo.

Emphasizing Freckles in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom

The blue filter would block out a great deal of the red light. As a result, the red tones in the skin would appear darker. When you emulate the same thing in software, it darkens the reds and emphasizes the freckles. That’s also why my eyes, which are blue, appear lighter.

The filter settings in software can’t quite achieve the same results as true colored glass filters and black-and-white film, but they do give you an approximation and for something like this, that’s all we really need.

The techniques work with other things, too. For instance, if you want to darken up a blue sky in a black and white image, a red filter will do nicely.

As noted in the video, though, this isn’t always the most flattering technique. If someone has sun damage to their skin or blemishes of any kind, really, they’re emphasized using this editing trick. So, don’t go doing it to everyone’s selfies on Facebook and posting them without their permission.

This Video of the Moon Taken With Nikon’s P600 Reminds Us How Insane 83x Optical Zoom Really Is

Taking a decent picture of the moon can actually be a pretty challenging thing. One Youtube user, however, took out his new Nikon Coolpix P900 and decided to make it the subject for his test of the 83x optical zoom. The results are pretty amazing.

At its long end, the P900 has a full-frame equivalent field of view of a 2,000mm lens. That’s telescope territory. The image coming out of the camera obviously isn’t perfect as it has all sorts of things to deal with like atmosphere and camera shake (shooting at 2,000mm requires a very sturdy tripod), but the image is still very impressive for a $600 camera.

While that kind of insane focal range probably isn’t very practical for most shooters, it does enable some nifty accomplishments.

Guy Shoots Down Neighbor’s Drone, Gets Sued, Loses

Man Shoots Down Camera Drone, Gets Sued, Loses

As posts about drones become more common on the internet, it seems like a common occurrence to see people comment about how they intend to “shoot them out of the air” if they feel like their privacy is being compromised. Well, one California man followed through with that promise and ended up having to pay for his actions.

You can read more of the story over on Vice’s Motherboard blog, but the story follows the basic narrative you’d expect. A man builds a drone and starts flying it. It flies above the neighbor’s property and the neighbor has his son blast the drone out of the sky. The neighbors then argue about how much cash needs to be forked over in light of the incident and it ends up in court.

Ultimately, the court sided with the drone pilot, and in doing so, may have set a very interesting precedent. As Vice points out the FAA does consider drones to be aircrafts, so shooting one could be considered a federal crime with serious jail time as the punishment.

We’re sure to see more cases like this as we go into the future and there are likely lots of issues that still need to be worked out. What is a person supposed to do if a drone is flying over their property? Surely shooting it out of the sky is a bit extreme (and dangerous), but what’s the alternative?
