Okay, been too long paying for but not using this site. Expect an overhaul and new content by the end of the month, mostly to do with things I’ve learned since starting photography.

Nikkor: Non-AI vs AI

Next time I’ll know the difference.  Took me 3 hours to figure out what the difference was, how to mod it, and to actually take it apart, grind it down, and somehow put it back together again, orz…

Oh well, now I know how to do an AI lens conversion :/

Enjoying that 1960′s 105mm f2.5 goodness :p

May not be the gauss version, or multicoated, but still a fine lens.  Should still be great for portraits in addition to being a nice short telephoto prime.  Very nice bokeh as well; goes all swirly when pushed for that.

Haven’t posted in a while and not sure how often I’ll post in the future…blog design needs an overhaul and I don’t have any time nor interest right now to do it, but eventually I’m sure it’ll be done.  At least I’m still getting out there snapping pictures.

Played some golf…

Shot +4 or so over nine holes.  Made a triple on the first hole after hitting my tee shot into the water and blading it over the green.  Went on to go par, bogey, and then par my way back to the clubhouse.  I managed to drive the ball a lot better and hit my irons fairly good.  Short game was surprisingly good for some reason, lots of up and downs from around the green for par lol.  All in all hopefully I’ll bring some positive energy into the upcoming tournament I need to play in on Thursday.

Photog-wise I’m waiting on a couple of “new” lenses.  Well, both of them are used but hopefully in good shape.  A Tamron 28-75mm and the somewhat well-known 90mm 2.8 macro.  The 90mm macro I managed to snag is the older non-DI version, but I’m not really anticipating any problems with internal reflections from my camera’s sensor.  Who knows though, maybe I’ll lose a bit of contrast or something.  I’ll probably post my impressions of both lenses when I receive them.  Only time will tell whether or not the copy of the 28-75 I’m getting is going to be sharp or not.

Rainy Sunday

It’s been raining here all day so I guess I won’t get a chance to go to the driving range to practice my golf swing.  I’ll probably need to stop by at least a couple of times to get my swing at least semi-consistent before that charity tournament next week.

Works been busy for a while now but I think I can finally see the end in sight.  There’s still other projects to worry about, but some of the major ones are finally reaching their end, at least for the short-term.  Put in more hours than usual last week, including about 6 yesterday.  Tomorrow will be a busy day but hopefully it will be a productive one.

In figure news, recently received Alter’s Hirasawa Yui.  Wrote up a review on myfigurecollection.net for anybody interested.

Well, here’s hoping for a productive week.  Hopefully things will slow down enough for me to take a day off, but my boss mentioned this month is gonna be more crazy than the last so…hmm…who knows.

Helicopter

Aw yeah, bought me a new helicopter.  I’ll probably bring it to work and get fired lol…well, hopefully not.  But I will bring it to work.  Right now it’s slowly charging via my usb port.

In other news…some nicolinks:
