    Thanks. Not only is the lens dead, the camera wouldn't power on when I tried it today. I hope it's just the battery. We'll see. The D2Xs is a fine camera for portraits... a great camera for anything except night photography, and I'm tempted to find another one if it fails, or even get this one repaired.

This is sheep country with very rough grazing. The second photo was taken looking back more or less in the direction of our house, with the Irish Sea in the background. All four photos are from monochrome JPEGs using the settings suggested by Jack with some tweaking. Nikkor Z 24-70 F4 lens.

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Went for a drive to the airport. Still nowhere to fly except domestic.

    D300 with Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6

    This camera is a bit confused when it comes to EXIF data. It claims that the lens is a 300-20mm f/5.6-8.5 and that this was shot at 3,200mm and f/95. That would explain the heat haze and the lack of sharpness, but somehow I suspect that it's just becoming senile. I see that mint condition D300s are available for around $300, but I'll wait for the new batteries for the D2Xs first.

    I took a quick walk through the neighbourhood this afternoon, the walk I have been thinking about taking since I moved here four years ago. Here are some snapshots, all with the D300 and the Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6, mostly at f/8:

    I've been a Lightroom user for many years. I'm messing about with Capture One 20 at the moment and I'm liking the results.

    Keith,

    Where or how do you obtain all of the dead animals you photograph? Do you just find them in-situ laying around and photograph them, or are they posed where found, or taken back to a studio set??? Inquiring minds need to know!

    Jack, really it's a variety of sources. Some I've had for years having found them in their natural habitat or been given them by people who have done the same. Others are more recent acquisitions.

    All of this series except one are 'studio set-ups' and shot in my home and garden during the Covid-19 pandemic. They are all single shot, in camera images with tweaks to tone and colour in PS.

    The following is a paragraph or two taken from my website about the series.

    "Much of my work celebrates light, colour and life. The series ‘Dark Times’ deviates towards the dark, the monochromatic and mortality. The work is being shot during the Covid-19 pandemic here in the UK: The darkest of times.

    The aim of the series is to confront fears around the inevitability of mortality and to further explore beauty and decay.

    No lives are harmed in the making of these images, including my own. Producing the series continues to be a surprisingly therapeutic process."

    Pablo Picasso: "And then I understood what painting really meant. It's not an aesthetic process; it's a form of magic that interposes itself between us and the hostile universe, a means of seizing power by imposing a form on our terrors as well as on our desires. The day I understood that, I had found my path."
