    Here are a couple shots of him I did last year: (D300, 85/1.4)



    And with his oldest (and my first grandchild), Gabe:

    Lloyd, your portraits are always amazing. You seem to achieve my ideal in photography; sharing emotions. I feel elevated.
    Thanks and best regards,

The lock knobs are far too small to be useful and often if the lens is in the vertical shift position and you don't really crank down on the tiny lock knob the lens will drop its shift. The tilt mechanism does not a built in brake like the 85 PC lens either, meaning the leveraged weight will just allow the tilting to drop down with gravity if you are not careful. Both issues are annoying at best.

    The T/S lenses are no replacement for a LF view camera and its capabilities (image quality aside), they simply do not have the versatility of movements and image manipulations of a true VC. Last year I heard Rodenstock was to come out with some T/S lenses for Nikon and Canon that were much more adept and versatile but thus far they seem like vapor ware.

    Bottom line is I would still recommend the 24 PC-E but with the aforementioned caveats. BTW, nice images from that D3x that you have been posting. From my perspective the image quality from this camera seems very unique, not like anything I have seen from Nikon or camera company previously. Colors seem very liquid like without looking plastic.

    Below are a couple of images from the D3/24 PC-E combination, which I don't think I have posted before, probably should've checked to make sure.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks much for that. In all honesty, it's actually been a very interesting and somewhat emotional journey for me, watching him develop as a photographer. Something akin to hearing a song from years past, and being instantly transported in memory to an former time and place. I'm flattered that he still calls and asks my advice. Truth is, I often call and ask for his these days, what this being a digital world and all.

    Hello viablex1,
    I agree with Lloyd and others that the lighting is superb in all of your images. From what you just mentioned, you have really achieved beautiful images using natural lighting through long time exposures. All the best, Leica 77

    Fantastic portraits, Lloyd

    Jazz festival in Hua Hin this weekend. I went there, but never got around to any of the concerts. Walked the streets instead, and had a great bicycle trip with Danish and Norwegian friends today.

    Cider, anyone?

    D80 with 85mm f/1.8 @ f/1.8

    Portrait across the table in no light.

    D80 with 85mm f/1.8 @ f/2.0, ISO 800 and 1/30s handheld. We don't need no slow, stinkin' image stabilized zooms, do we??

    Is the lake closed because of alligators? Or is it just someone telling other people what not to do?

    Am I the only one who cannot see AlexLF's pics? It seems that Alex' image host modelportfolio.ru is blocked for me. Probably my ISP doing the blocking, I guess.

    If it was alligators, the signs would have to say alligators and the lake would be fenced off since alligators walk on land too. No, I think it has to do with that sub-species of alligator - the insurance adjuster.

    Well... that is really strange. I double checked - there were no problems with my website (at least my hoster tells me that).

    Lars, I looked at your website and you have really great landscapes. Do you still shoot large format? I'm asking because my Linhof hasn't seen any light for about 8 months already. Well, and I haven't been done any travel so far...

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Lars, open a Command Prompt (or Terminal session on a Mac/Linux system) and type
    Code:
    ping name of AlexLF's site or its IP address
    If that fails then the IP is blocked by your ISP, if not try
    Code:
    tracerte name of AlexLF's site or its IP address (tracert on Mac/Linux)
    and it should list the number of hops to get to the site or where it is failing.

    Hello Cindy Flood,
    I agree with Lloyd that the bleeding hearts are beautiful. The bokeh produced by the Mamiya lens looks rather distinct as well. I always enjoyed using the 645 medium format Mamiya lenses during the days of film cameras. All the best, Leica 77

    Thank you Lloyd and Leica77.
    The older Mamiya lenses are inexpensive and fun to use on the Nikons. I put them on my DX and FX bodies.

    After all the trials and tribulations you had getting a clean one, it's nice to see some 80/1.9 images from you. Look great.

    Carlos,
    Ebay adapter Mamiya M645 to Nikon. I have the M645 80 f/1.9 (and 80 f/2.8), 150 f/3.5 and 200 f/2.8 lenses. I really like them all on my Nikon/Fuji bodies. I also have an old Mamiya 645 Super MF camera, so they serve me well.

    One more fun picture with Nikon D300 + Nikon AF 18-200 VR lens from my recent travel to Hawaii. This one is similar to the one previously posted. However, the background is slightly differenct. Thanks for looking. Leica 77

    Born and raised in west palm beach have seen my share, I'll beat them up with leica77's camera!!! and besides there is no real indication that a.) this is florida and B.) that there are gators present..and by the way those pics with that mamiya glass are stunning, I wish now I wouldn't have sold all my mamiya glass!!!
