I wasn't planning on using the internets even though we have it this year, but I decided to actually download & look at the manual for the Hasselblad camera I have for the weekend. :)
It's kind of fun shooting w/film again. And maybe I'll even know how to work the camera before the weekend is over!

Even though it was cold and dreary yesterday I felt the need to get out there and try out my new lens. I decided that it would be a god day to finally go check out a heron rookery.
I went to North Mississippi Regional Park because a) it was closer to home, and b) it's much smaller, therefore my chances of having to walk forever to see the herons were much less.
My pretty new lens? Here's an example of what it can do.

This was the whole frame in the camera:


And this is the detail I still have when I zoomed in quite a bit:


I love my new lens! (it is heavy though)

Mine!

I have a new lens: EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM



It came in to work used and I got a heck of a good price on it. Of course, it's still more than I ever thought I would spend on a lens so I'll be getting a second job after school ends so I can replace the money in the account. I have a lens as big as my head!

Working at the photo store made me think that I really needed to get the sensor on my digital camera cleaned. Since I work there they would do it for free instead of charging the usual $50, so I got it done yesterday.
The way to check how dirty a sensor is is to open the aperature way up and take a shot of a blank light-colored wall. Then you take the picture and open it up in Photoshop. Open levels and hit auto levels. This will make any specks of dust on the sensor show up.
This was what mine looked like:


Now that it's been cleaned it looks like this:
