Starting to Settle In

There's always an adjustment period with a new camera or lens. I would say that the adjustment period for the D700 was short - it was so much more capable than anything I had previously that I mostly spent the time saying 'wow'.

The D800 is different. It is revealing itself to be very demanding - of the best lenses, and the best technique. But when you have those, you can get some wonderful results.

This is about 60% of the frame. I shot this with a borrowed 105mm 2.8 Micro-Nikkor, at ISO 400. There are few adjustments here - a little boost to contrast, a sharpness mask (high pass filter), and a small bump in saturation, about 5% as I remember.

I spent more time on the photos of the milk.

There will be more, I think.
