I decided I needed to do something a bit different so i went out and did some IR shots. I haven't done them in a while.

I saw San Francisco Ballet perform at Stern Grove today, and caught this moment off-stage:

If not for the rather expressionless dude, this almost looks staged. Nice capture.

Thanks. That was pure luck. The wings of this stage are visible from the audience (it's an amphitheater in a park), and I was taking some pictures of the dancers milling around off-stage. It wasn't until I got home that I discovered what I had. I'm not sure if they were reacting to me or someone else.

And now for some film, taken earlier that day at the de Young Museum. Fuji Acros 100 pushed 2 stops, 1 hour stand development in 1:100 Rodinal, and shot with a Fuji GW690III. Scanned later with a Sony NEX-5N, Canon FD 50/3.5 macro in a 2x2 pano that gave me 42 megapixels. It's scaled down to 3 Mpixels for public consumption. I'm not sure that I'd do 2 stops again because the shadows are a bit blocked up and some of the highlights are blown, but I needed the speed that day.

Focus peak + lens adapter + hyper focus might be an interesting experiment.

I'm the Harrier jet of the bird world. I'm the lead singer in the band The Hummers. I'm lean. I'm mean. I'm a ROCKSTAR.

Very nice. That makes me wish for a zoom lens. What (equivalent) focal length did you use here?

It would be about 160mm at 3 feet or so away from my Rockstar hummingbird feeder. The camera was on a tripod and remotely triggered. It took me a while to train the hummingbirds to drink from the can and get used to the camera. Next thing on my list is switch to a macro lens and get a really close shot. That should be interesting.

That explains the closeness. Thanks.

Remote triggers are very useful for this kind of stuff for sure. The specifics on the lens is it's a Minolta AF 24-105. So with the sensor crop on the A77 it acts more like a 35 to 160.

Adapted 50mm f 1.4 MC Rokkor on the A77. Details on Flickr and to really appreciate the setup you do need to look at the full size images. I'm really not sure what all the fuss about IQ is all about. From what I'm seeing I could easily print very detailed high quality prints 36 by 24 inches without any problems.
