With a lack of any exciting CW DX recently, and in the foreseeable future - and with a few upcoming trips planned to beautiful outdoorsy locations - I've been spending some quality time lately with a new camera.
I used the excuse of the trips to justify the purchase of the camera. "It's only $40, dear!" Yeah right - after so many years as a ham-wife, she doesn't buy that BS anymore but sometimes she lovingly pretends to.
Gone is the clunky dSLR and "in" is a new mirrorless model, the Nikon Z6.
I should have made the switch two years ago when Nikon first introduced this model - a completely new format in their lineup.
There are a few very significant advantages to mirrorless cameras compared to dSLR's but I won't bore you (any more than I already have) with the details. Suffice it to say that the Z6 is the camera I've always wanted in terms of its operation and capabilities.
The point of all this is to say that I may periodically intrude into the stated topic of this blog with the digital debris of my photographic forays, and such is the case with this posting - the result of my first outting with the Z6, yesterday in Galveston.
The photo (above) and this shot of a fishing pier are the two pics I'm happiest with. A 10-stop ND filter allowed a 20-second exposure of the pier, blurring the wave movement and ghosting the fishermen on the pier.
What is it about some images that makes them look better as B&W instead of color? This is one of those, I believe. I'll even get uppity and give the photo a title, like real photographers do.
