I might as well start throwing my shots into my own thread. My camera is a D7000, and is my first purchase of a SLR. I chose two lens to begin with, the Nikon 50mm f1.4G having seen some nice portrait work with the lens by a friend of mine, and a Nikon 35mm f1.8G that would give me a wider field of view for my food photography. I really like this camera, and have found myself using the 50mm more than the 35mm so far. These first few shots I'm posting were taken this week in Sydney during my spare time at a conference. I'm slowly getting into the habit of checking all the camera settings before I take a photo, and gaining good appreciation of what I need for different scenes. Enjoy :)


1. Tumbalong Park fountain. 50mm, f1.4, 1/8000, ISO160
2. Tumbalong Park fountain. 50mm, f1.4, 1/1600, ISO160
3. Darling Harbour spiral. 35mm, f1.8, 1/160, ISO160


4. Tumbalong Park fountain. 35mm, f5.6, 1/640, ISO160
5. Tumbalong Park fountain. 35mm, f4.0, 1/1250, ISO160
6. Darling Harbour spiral. 35mm, f1.8, 1/160, ISO160


7. A table!. 50mm, f1.4, 1/40, ISO1000
8. Chairs & Gull. 50mm, f1.4, 1/40, ISO1000
9. Laser Tag. 35mm, f2.8, 1/60, ISO800 (Auto+Flash), LR used to remove smoke scatter.

hey man welcome to D7K club, it is a nice camera indeed, still learning mine. The spiral and the table are quite nice. The rich colouring on the table is excellent.

Had a go of trying to capture the beard of one of my bearded dragons using a 35mm. They stay pretty damn still so long as I don't move my fingers (fingers=food), so I could get good results with 1/2s exposure. Aperture was F4.5 and ISO100. The right is a crop of my focusing region.

what was the camera and lens on that dragon? I am detecting a bit of defocus, and chromatic aberration on the head.

The lens is a Nikon 35mm DX 1.8G on a Nikon D7000

The following pics are from Wilsons Promontory National Park at the southernmost tip of mainland Australia. I spend an afternoon, sunset and night around the Tidal River beaches. Some multiple exposure and HDR shots will maybe come later. I'm new at the game so really don't know how they will turn out.

NYE 2011 in Melbourne. I Wanted to photograph fireworks with the city in the background but the wind was coming right at me, and the first few fireworks were pretty dull so the shots were boring.
Some rockets went off in parkland beside the city, and came up OK after some cropping.


Jumping spider I captured by revering my 50 mm lens. Blurry due manual holding of the lens and no control over aperture ring.

A few food snaps I've taken before consumption.

Wilsons Promontory National Park. I've now learnt that lightroom produced quite different photos than what I get on my camera, and how to fix them. Better in these ones.


Cape Schanck National Park HDRs. A storm front was rocketing in read quick, and I had a go at trying to HDR it. My manual ev stepping was a little slow, and the cloud movement is apparent.

D7k can do bracketed exposure +/- of metered exposure, so you can take 3 shots in rapid succession...

The bottom left shot in the last batch is very nice....all are goo, but this one stands out to me...

Yeah I've thrown it on bkt with high frame rate before (also, the internal intervalometer can be set up with bracketing in mind for easy time lapse hdr). I probably did at that location, but I know I also wanted to experiment further by going manual, which I think is what resulted in the bottom left shot. I've also read you can set up U1 and U2 to be +2eV so that with +-2 bracketing you can get a full 9eVs if you so desired it. Other people suggested writing to Nikon to get a firmware update that allows more :p

The current Melbourne weather has been pretty good for sunsets, with cloud cover just at the right level to let bursts of light through to the smog of the city. I decided to try my luck at a few HDRs to see if I could catch the city, sun and clouds all in one shot. I'm pretty darn happy with the results given I've only had the camera less than half a year. All shots were taken on a D7000 with a 50mm 1.4 lens set at f10. All shots are 9 step HDRs with ISO100. Processing was performed in photomatix.

Took a trip out to Victoria's Grampians National Park on the weekend, and managed to squeeze in some time for photography.


Nice rock formations.


The Pinnacle.


Middle part of Mackenzie Falls.


Lower (main) part of Mackenzie Falls.


Group photo at the Pinnacle.

And on the HDR Side:

Very nice shots man. Some nice effects too. HDR on the 3rd last? The waterfall ones are perfect...what was the time exposure on those?

Grampians is one place in Australia that I haven't yet visited but should. Your pics have confirmed it.

The last four were all HDR. With the third last I had to deal with some fast moving cloud, and in the second last I had some strong (and freezing) wind to contend with which resulted in the foreground vegetation blur.

The single exposure waterfalls were taken at around 0.5s exposure to smooth it out, whilst the HDR waterfall was taken at 1/13 and faster so that the turbulence would be preserved.

I think I'll be going back there specifically for a photo shoot (and to see the parts I missed).

It looks like a wonderful bit of country to explore and photograph.. Beautiful pictures, and I have to say it's a very nice use of HDR.

Out of my mind, be back eventually.
