Wow, two photos in a week. Matthew, that is an accomplishment held only by Tay, myself, and my dogs. Haha, welcome to the club.
Anyway, today we went out to celebrate Troy’s birthday at none other than Chipotle. Because… that’s where us grown ups go to celebrate birthdays. Right?
So, I’ve been having issues with my new 35mm f/1.4L. By all accounts, it should be a razor sharp lens, even wide open at 1.4, but I’ve been having issues with it front focusing. Or back focusing. However it’s called. I was doing research, and was *this* close to sending it into Canon to be calibrated, and then I read how my 7D has the ability to micro-calibrate lenses to my body. So basically the camera will detect what lens is attached and then adjust focus specifically for each lens. I went through the “suggested” method on this site: www.northlight-images.co.uk/article_pages/cameras/1ds3_af… but then tweaked it with my eye. I am MUCH happier with the results. Let’s check out some photos from tonight, shall we?
Birthday Boy Troy
Funny story (or not) about that last photo. I was propping my camera up on some railing and gonna use my 10 second timer since i had my 35mm attached, and not my wide angle. Anyway, a fellow diner saw my camera precariously perched on the ledge and offered to help take the photo. So i passed the camera off to her, forgot that not everyone knows how to use a DSLR and left her hanging. Then on top of that, I left the timer on 10 seconds, so she had to stand there for 10 seconds holding the camera while we all held a cheesy pose until the photo took. Haha, awkward. End of story.
Anyway, then we went back to Troy’s for some good conversation and MindQuest.
I was SOOO tempted to use that last picture as my picture of the day. just because his pose is ridiculous. But then I realized I didn’t want to look at that picture all that often, so, best to leave it out of my 365. =)
Anyway, MindQuest is crazy. Can you read the card in the picture? It says:
“Sam Slug was standing in the post office looking at a ‘wanted’ poster. Somone asked him who the man in the poster was and Sam replied, ‘Brothers and sisters I have none, but this man’s father is my father’s son.’ Whose picture was on the poster that Sam was looking at?”
And if you google it, you are a CHEATER!
