PBR on my BAR

Here's one more shot of the bottle of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, this time on my bar. As well as my bar lights, I used a snooted flash behind and below the bottle to light the interior of the bottle then placed two strip boxes horizontally in the front, far left and right.

This is also a composition of two shots blended, one taken at f2.8 for the background and the other at f5.6 for the bottle.

Your colors, lighting, attention to every detail always impresses. I love the gypsy-motif on the label.

Looking forward to getting my newest lens later this week: the Voigtlander 65mm. :) NOT looking forward to having to let go my sweet little FE 55mm. :(

However, the spacing of my prime kit is going to be fantastic - near ideal - with the addition of the new lens. Each subsequent lens is reasonably close to double the focal length of the next widest lens: 12mm, 21mm, 35mm, 65mm, 135mm.

really cool shot and interesting regarding the spacing.

AOV corner to corner in degrees
12 - 122
21 - 91.7
35 - 63.4
55 - 42.9
65 - 36.8
135 - 18.2

if you look at 35 and 135 and split in have you get 40.8, which favors the 55mm being closer to the midway point. Just an interesting tidbit, I always thought 85 would be mid mark. The CV 65 does look amazing, and love the fact it's a fast macro.


Sony A7rii x2 - FE 12-24/4 - FE 24-240 - FE 35/2.8 - CV 35/1.7 - FE 50/1.8 - FE 85/1.8 - EF 135/1.8 Art - F 600/5.6 - CZ 35-70, 100-300 - Astro Rok 14/2.8, 24/1.4 - Tamron 28-75 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8 VC

Yes it is true true true, the FE100-400GM is crazy sharp. It easily beats the EOS 100-400ii which I though was outstanding.
With either TC it still yields excellent performance. But F11 is F11, can't get around that. Even I don't like ISO 12,800 on the a9.
I'll truly see how the 2.0TC does at Conowingo. Last year with 500ISii + 1.4TCiii and I was just enough for focal length and the distance
the birds were. 800mm on the Sony will be really interesting if there is light. I've been to Cono when the light was abs. horrible.
You should think about attending David...it really is a lot of fun and there will be many there from POTN and FM.

The 500ISii was a very sharp lens, but not sharper than the latest Sony zoom. But fixed F4 was nice....one reason I'm still sitting on the
400DOii, it takes a 2.0iii very well too and either way (100-400gm or 400DOii) I'm still way lighter than 1DXii and 500 :)

Interestingly we're taking the campervan. No place to camp up there, but Poof likes a warm place to sit, read, internet, etc. while I shoot.
She'll shoot too but once she gets one or two she'll be done. Last year she took off on a hike down and back to the state park down river.

Now I bet I'll get some laughs but if I can get a keeper or two with the a9+100400gm then I'm pulling out the RX10iv.

Shame about the FE55, I kinda lost mine too....Poof has claimed it for use on her 6300...once she saw the sharpness she was amazed.
I should get her the affordable FE50 and take back the 55, just that 50 or 55 is just something I don't feel drawn to use.
Now the Voigtlander 65mm macro, now that is one that interests me.
Hey, 'Upside Downside' should be EXPLORED.

Never even heard of Conowingo before. Sounds interesting. If I were a bird shooter I'd definitely want to go.

We are camping towards your direction next week - camping at the Chilhowee park between the Ocoee and Hiwassee rivers. Was hoping we'd get some nice autumn colors towards the end of October, but it sounds like you're saying the colors aren't good this year. Oh well, I'll enjoy the camping nonetheless. :)

Haha...we're always doing this to each other, aren't we. :D
The 65mm is looking like a stunningly superb optic. And I like the same 10-point sunstar DNA shared with the other CV lenses as well as the Zeiss Loxias.

Weight and manual focus are the downsides - two areas where the fantastic FE 55mm really appeals to me. Still, I like that 65mm splits the difference between 50mm and 85-90mm and is a nicer step from 35mm than either imo.

A9 next A9 next.

Course I would be ahead a few bucks with this deal. Think I might miss the auto focus though I could handle the manual but sometimes its just nice to have that AF.

Still havent sold my Tammy or the 70-300 that were supposed to help my 100-400 purchase.


I still am amazed at the macro-ability of the 100-400

Congrats David. It's been said that the CV 65 APO and the Batis 135 are the top two highest quality native E-mount lenses available.

Too many names to mention and I would hate to leave anyone out but really great images recently by everyone. Eddie, way to get out of your comfort zone. Keep up the good work.

Not good is not totally accurate, plus I've paddled both the rivers you're headed to....whole nuther world down there PLUS we were up at the cabin today
and Poof and I think the colors are just delayed AND while up there at 3pm it was a balmy 46F AND tonight even here in town it will hit 38F. Cold air will
help all the colors. So my next of week just might give me something color wise. I might even go this weekend though it will be in the middle of my work week.

Here's one across from the cabin (where we shoot Milky Way DAVID in the spring :) (hope you are laughing), will give you an idea of the color at 4000 feet, shot
between 4:30pm and 5Pm.

I'd be homing in on the bats at sundown!
I've been in too many caves to count. Carlsbad is the best hands down. Mammoth might be huge but its not pretty. Wind Cave is way better
than Mammoth but Carlsbad takes the cake.

Thanks to my 'lil light meter. It's perfect the first time, the very first shot.

cc will be highly appreciated. especially the product shooting master Gene.

The first test was without the front lighting on and I thought it's better. On the second try i fired the front lighting with the same output(F9), i got a bit hazy result. it's still good but hazy.
