Ordered a new Nikon D750. Will be the first new camera I've bought since around 2007 or so. All my older point and shoots have ended up failing and stopped working, although I would like another HD Kodak like the one I used to have for easy pocket carrying video and high res macro shots, they all end up failign at some point in the shutter motor or internals to focus and record properly, my D60 has served me well, and will still be used, just want something better in low light ISO ranges and larger format, megapixel and color/high dynamic range.

While it would be nice to have a high end D4s or new D5, the D750 will more than fill the bill for my needs and a step up for things I want to look more professional in my shots and start using it more at night. Especially naturally lit shots with no flash, as I hate flash shots other than light painted ones for studio portraits or more akin to Mike Kelley's architecture and interior portraits. I say portraits, as he is an artist when it comes to his technique for lighting shots of houses and interiors and in themselves a work of art.

On of the things I want to do once the weather gets better is start working on a portfolio of work while not limiting myself to one area of photography, and hopefully start taking on some weekend work doing family portraits, architecture and real estate work, and dare I even say second shooter for weddings. Something for extra income on the weekends while honing my photography hobby into a more professional side. I live near the beach now, so hopefully will be an incentive to get out more with the camera too.
Brenizer Test by xxdigipxx
Brenizer Test
Trying a technique developed by Ryan Brenizer and named after him as the Brenizer Method, this was shot with what you see because I basically didn't have anything on hand with enough contrast and depth to show off the technique. I've done panorama shots before, and even faked the kind of tilt-shift effect you get with a proper tilt shift lens, but never created one using this method, which instead of the simple left to right kind of stitched together panorama, you lock you focus on your main subject and then pan around it while in a shallow depth of field, wider open fstop, the better, and then post process everything to merge it together and color enhance. The final image gives it the effect above(although I am not using a proper subject against a far enough contrasted background to really show what it can do, it can still kind of be seen here what it does). This was somewhere around 18 images composited together to get this effect, which in itself can make an image much larger than a single zoomed out shot of the same composition when finished. Works even better outside with a fast lens at f1.4-1.8, but I only have an f3.5 and f2.8(wide angle14mm), which works better on 50mm and above lenses.

Thanks for another fave!  :)

I hope things are good where you are.  Seeing the photo of the fox in NJ, I thought about the coming storms.  I remember too well how much fun snow and ice were.

You're welcome. Yeah, the foxes are pretty safe on the inlet, although it does get pretty nasty during storms, where they are is one of the last natural barrier islands and the dunes are really tall on the ocean side.

I'd spent time at Long Beach Island and Point Pleasant Beach but never in-between there.  I remember a lot of flooding.
