Another Fine Mess

A few weeks ago I said I would report back on how I got on using the Hasselblad 120mm lens on my Nikon D810. Well the results were disappointing with all of the photos suffering from a lack of sharpness. I thought the problem would be manually focusing but in fact it was holding the combination steady that proved impossible. All of my shooting over the last 20 years or so has been with lenses in the 35mm to 85mm range so I’ve lost the knack of supporting a telephoto lens, even a short one. The situation wasn’t helped by a dose of old-age pensioners shaky hands so next time I use this lens I will definitely be employing a tripod. Here are some snaps from the shoot. The first set were taken with the usual Nikkor 50mm, and the second the Hasselblad 120mm. I’ve added some sharpening in Photoshop to try and hide the softness of the second set.

Pay Attention!

If you hadn’t already noticed Zoe has given me permission to post a few of her selfies on xHamster. Link is on the Movies page. If she kindly sends me more I will arrange to have that gallery updated. I live in hope that one day I will get her to pose on the green sofa but being a pessimist I’m not holding my breath.
Meanwhile let’s return to the back garden on a warm sunny afternoon for this posting.

Pink

Model’s opinions on the colour pink seem to be sharply divided. On the one hand I’ve worked with girls who have arrived with clothes and underwear in every shade of pink imaginable, yet others wouldn’t be seen dead in it, not even one pair of knickers. Having snapped one too many blondes wearing black I think it makes a pleasant change.
