To keep my hand in I’ve been running a few test setups on my Nikon D810. I’ve discovered how little I know about this camera and had to refer to the manual and watch a couple of YouTube videos. No surprise I suppose if you only use your camera for one subject with the same boring lighting setup.
I’ve set myself a target of sorting 100 “analogue” photos a day. If I stick to the schedule I could finish the cull within a year or two. As expected, I’ve come across shots of people and places I have little recollection of. Also, photos I remembered as being quite good now look mediocre. Conversely, shots that I had never given a second glance to now don’t look that bad. How time fades the memory.
Spring has arrived, so let’s get back in the garden. Unfortunately this year looks a lot different from previous years. In the current situation the chances of shooting anything like these 2 sets are remote.
I’ve been using my isolation time sorting through old snaps and binning 99.9% of them. They are never going to be used. I’ve found one or two that are of interest so I might try and digitise them. Their condition isn’t good so it will probably be a waste of time.
