At Last Spring is Here!

At Last Spring is Here!

Hi there everyone. After what can only be summarized as an exceptionally brutal February here in Calgary and Western Canada for that matter, Spring is almost here.

At last I see birds returning, trees with buds ready to burst to life and warm weather. I can hardly wait to get out shooting again without freezing the camera and some some body parts. Over the winter I have started to digitize some of my positives (slides) and negatives as I was a film shooter for many many years. I am using the the Nikon ES-2 Film Digitizing Adapter and a Nikkor 60mm f2.8 Macro lens which I purchased from Calgary’s premier camera store (The Camera Store). The Nikon D850 has a handy setting for completing the digitization process effortlessly. The more I digitize the slides and negatives (I literally have thousands), the more I really like my Nikon D850! So far I have digitized about 300 slides and haven’t even looked at or started on my collection of negatives.

I have added a sampling of some of the newly digitized images to the Landscape, Birds, Macro and Food galleries. I have included a digitized image of a slide of some apple blossoms I took several years ago. I really hope that you enjoy looking at them in the galleries I mentioned above. If you think I should write a blog on this process let please Contact me and let me know.

Happy Shooting,
