Deer Isle 2
December 12, 2016
I may have injured some seaweed, but I’m pretty sure it was able to recover. . . . A word about the technical problems with some of the photos in this series: Many of the whites are blasted out. I was using a Nikon 70, and it may be a problem with this camera. Or it may be a problem with this photographer. It looks like I wasn’t exposing for the highlights. Lightroom couldn’t help that much. I hope you can enjoy the photographs anyway; the seaweed is so luscious.
This is very interesting. I’m looking forward to more of this series. I still have an old D80 and it sits on my desk with a macro lens and a full battery charge. I think it was a good step up from the D70 but I have to remember to keep the ISO very low or I wind up with noisy files.

The D70 was my first camera after the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-F707. The little Sony was a great little camera for its time, but the D70 was a definite step up. Still, I missed the articulating whatchamacallit. Glad some of the new mirrorless cameras have that feature. Maybe some day . . . Glad you find the seaweed interesting. I was absolutely fascinated.

If there is a Santa Claus, I sure would like a Sony mirrorless camera.

I do enjoy it anyway, and on a beach in sunlight, highlights do get really, really bright. Maybe a filter, (like a polarizing filter?) would cut it down. But like I said, I still enjoy the photograph.

The more I think about it, the more I think the problem is that I didn’t expose for the highlights. I’d only been using that camera for a week or so when I took these photographs. I didn’t realize how much control I could have with the exposures. Glad you were still able to enjoy the photograph.
