Yes excellent photography. Much better than what I see on AE's website. Hey Cal what are the specs on those boots?

Your natural shell dundees are looking quite nice. @peppercorn78 will like the shoes and coffee pose!

Indeed I do, gents!

I wore my chukkas today with a big thermos of Joe. Spoilered for non-AE content

+1 for chukkas with coffee. Always.

@mdubs I've been alternating between navy and natural brown Dundees to break them in. They are now super comfortable. I have to say the shell on the natural Browns have been much nicer than the darker colored ones.

@Kahuna75  Thank you very much my friend... These were designed for my feet, I guess...

 

Thank you on the Alden comments, they were indeed made upon the Barrie Last, but they were a 10.5B and so they don't look quite as "Barrie" as most...

 

Thanks,
Mike

MTO Bayfields in Cappuccino Cordovan, my best Mdubs poses while I practice how to use the manual functions on my camera. Tips welcome @mdubs

 

I treated these with Woly Natura Waterstop this morning for the snow and I am pleased to say no water welts at all, this pair always gets them bad too. I did get a nice scrape on the toe of the right shoe from my gas pedal though, will fix with some brushing tonight.

Ha...I was typing on my phone and I guess part got left out...It was supposed to say it looks like the fit was designed for your foot...lol....I mean there is no gap or anything on those loafers on the side.

 

Amazing how the B width changes the Barrie...- enjoy sir! and happy Thanksgiving

Ha! They are looking very good!!! Your boots have a nice and rich color.

My setup is as follows: Nikon D90 (DX) Camera. Nikon 50mm f1.4 DX Lens. Since I am on a 50mm on a DX (1.4x crop), I am getting about a 70mm equivalent zoom (compared to 35mm film).

I take all my shoe photos at f2.8 and at 1/100 second shutter speed. I like the subject isolation that you get at f2.8 and like the "shake protection" 1/100ths provides. I adjust the ISO sensitivity to compensate for lighting. In my office, I am usually at an ISO 1000. Outside shots (my grass/stone backyard shots) are typically around ISO 100, but sometimes I have to adjust the shutter speed to be faster. I always try and barely underexpose my pictures, at least from the reading on my camera's internal light meter, as the colors look better, richer, not blown out.

I usually center the camera on the portion of the shoe that I want it to focus on (almost always the toe) and autofocus to get the focus and then once it focuses, I switch it to manual focus and center the camera to how I want the shot framed.

That's about it. It becomes habit pretty quickly. Don't even think about it anymore.
