Depth of Field

Large aperture, shallow depth of field

Still doing some camera tests.  While you can't see it in these two photos, the chef moves quite a bit.  This is just from my fat finger pressing the camera's shutter button.  Mind you for the test I'm using a flimsy lighter tripod.  I'm also not using a shutter release cable.  (something to do at lunch when I'm not doing my real job)

Blimp shopping

Downtown camera, my camera haunt

I spent the mid part of the afternoon shopping for a blimp, a case that goes around your camera and muffles the sound of the shutter. Earlier than that and I was sound asleep recovering from an exhausting week's worth of work. I suppose I could have called the stores instead of going to them but I like seeing what's new. Also I like walking around outside. In the end none of the camera stores I went to had an enclosure for my D700. The camera is four years old. So finding stuff proved to be a bit more difficult than I originally thought.

I did end up getting a cable to attach my camera to a pocket wizard transceiver, thus allowing me to trigger my camera from 2000 feet away. I'd been meaning to get one of these things for a while.
