Dyrehaven - Day 22

When buying old Nikon SLR's you also have a chance to get an interesting lens as part of the kit. One such lens is the Nikon Series E 100 f/2.8. It's a manual focus lens.

I mounted the lens on my Nikon D300 and went out shooting with tripod to test the Mirror Up (MU) function together with the Nikon MC-36 cable release. Shooting with MU should in theory give sharper photos because the shutter is not introducing any vibration when moving up. I must admit when studying a photo taken without MU and a photo with MU - I can't see the difference. Maybe its the lens - maybe its me?! 

My subject was a tree that still had a lot of apples eventhough it's winter. It's as if the tree wont realize winter has come.

My next subject was "Dyrehaven" - a park close to my home. Again the D300 with the 100mm f/2.8 Series E lens and the Nikon MC-36 cable release was mounted on a tripod. 

Both photos received some post processing in LR3 and the latter also a 6:18 Tone Blue Seim Effect.

Here is my setup :-)

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
