It's only about an hour from Washington, D.C. The park has miles of rocky trails through forests and meadows and you can even find your way onto the Appalachian Trial from here. Be sure to bring some snacks and water (you won't find these at the top of the mountain), some insect repellent and a comfortable pair of hiking shoes. Our total hike was over eleven miles, but we went about four miles (total) beyond the top of the mountain.</p> <p>Clicking on the first image will show you a pop-up gallery view, or you can scroll. There is also a gallery at the bottom of the page which includes these and a few other photos.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/100" hreflang="en">Photos</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/500" hreflang="en">Washington</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/87" hreflang="en">Landscapes</a></div> </div> <section> <a id="comment-161"></a> <div class="comment comment--type-comment comment--view-mode-default ds-1col clearfix"> <div property="schema:text" class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Beautiful pictures! :)</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-comment-changed-date field--type-ds field--label-hidden field--item">Mon, 07/09/2018 - 18:22</div> </div> <div class="indented"><a id="comment-162"></a> <div class="comment comment--type-comment comment--view-mode-default ds-1col clearfix"> <div property="schema:text" class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Many thanks, Adam.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-comment-changed-date field--type-ds field--label-hidden field--item">Mon, 07/09/2018 - 18:22</div> </div> </div><a id="comment-163"></a> <div class="comment comment--type-comment comment--view-mode-default ds-1col clearfix"> <div property="schema:text" class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>These are so special -- this is the kind of mountain scene that surrounds our new place in Roanoke!</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-comment-changed-date field--type-ds field--label-hidden field--item">Tue, 07/10/2018 - 08:39</div> </div> <div class="indented"><a id="comment-164"></a> <div class="comment comment--type-comment comment--view-mode-default ds-1col clearfix"> <div property="schema:text" class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Thank  you, Karla.

illegally crossing the border between the U.S. and Mexico, even in cases where they were seeking asylum.</p> <p>The subsequent march from Lafayette Park seemed sporadic and not as well organized as the rally itself, perhaps due to the intense heat and unrelenting sunshine.</p> <p>These are far from any comprehensive coverage of the event. I'm still getting familiar with my OM-D EM-1 Mark II camera and was eager to give it a workout. It performed far better than I did in capturing some of the events of the day.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div

issues sometimes ruined or restricted the best composition of my images.</p> <p>All wide angle lenses are plagued with various distortion issues; it's a matter of finding a lens whose issues you can

Pretty well balanced barrel distortion on the bottom, and mostly on the top left of the frame. Distance was about 1.5 feet. F/6.3 Some darkening at the corners - not an issue for me.</p> <p>2) Irix 11mm f/4 lens at f/9. The sun was filtered behind the leaves, but I still expected some ghosting. There was none. That doesn't mean it won't show in some situations, but I feel pretty certain that the Nikkor would have ghosted here.</p> <p>3) Irix 11mm f/4 at f/8. Nikon D610. Shooting vertically with a lot of lines in the photo. Nothing unexpected here.</p> <p>4) Irix 11mm f/4 at f/9, closest focus of 0.9 feet (0.257 meters). I'm surprised at the fairly shallow depth of field, but I like the way the background blurs.</p> <p>5) A vertical shot showing barrel distortion. I don't find this terrible for an 11mm rectilinear lens. My focus was off in this one too, so I gave the image a little extra sharpening. Notice how the sharpening intensified the chromatic aberration, which I had not corrected in post processing. </p> <p>6) Oliver preening himself.</p> <hr /><p> </p></div> </div></div> <div class="field--item"><div class="paragraph paragraph--type--colorbox-paragraph paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="field field--name-field-paragraph-text field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>It's important to note that this is a manual focus lens and the barrel turn from closest to farthest focus is over 4.5 inches. Being that this is an f/4 ultra-wide lens, I wasn't surprised to find my Nikon D610 having a hard time showing me a precise point of focus at the farther range. On many occasions, I had to use the focus confirmation dot and my own eyes to get it just right. For some scenes, it seemed easier to just set the focus by estimating the distance. There is a hyperfocal scale on the barrel. The Irix is a G-type lens with no aperture ring. It also has a ring on the barrel that will lock the focus in place, though focusing is so firm that I can't imagine why this is needed.</p> <p>The lens has a fair amount of chromatic aberration, which should be easily correctable in post processing. You may see it though, if you use jpeg images straight from the camera. This is not unusual for an ultrawide lens.</p> <p>The Irix comes in a metal box and is supplied with a built-in hood, two rear lens caps (one is a spare), a plastic lens cap/cover, and a soft pouch to protect the lens from getting scuffed up in your camera bag. The Firefly version weighs 25.8 oz (about 731 grams). </p> <p>I'm going to have a lot of fun using this lens.</p></div> </div></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"></div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/518" hreflang="en">Gear reviews</a></div> </div> <section> <h3>Add new comment</h3> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=148&amp;2=comment&amp;3=comment" token="vmyEvyDHkO205FAqZmhHSW9Hd66MZmekRfQSoDC8gk0"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> <div class="field field--name-field-copyright field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field--label">Copyright</div> <div class="field--item">© Dan Murano, all rights reserved</div> </div> </div> Thu, 03 May 2018 16:00:02 +0000 Dan Murano 148 at http://danmurano.com Dan Murano http://danmurano.com/photography/irix-11mm-f4-lens-first-impressions#comments On the editing table, installment one http://danmurano.com/photography/editing-table-installment-one <div data-history-node-id="145" class="node node--type-photography node--view-mode-rss ds-1col clearfix"> <div class="field field--name-node-title field--type-ds field--label-hidden field--item"><h3> <a href="/photography/editing-table-installment-one" hreflang="en">On the editing table, installment one</a> </h3> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-date field--type-datetime field--label-hidden field--item">October 25, 2017</div> <div class="field field--name-field-colorbox-paragraph field--type-entity-reference-revisions field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><div class="paragraph paragraph--type--colorbox-paragraph paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="http://danmurano.com/sites/default/files/2017-10/Paris-building1b_0.jpg" title="Paris.

It helps to have extra mats or some high quality cropping Ls for this process.</p> <p>I looked at a laser proof of this image for many years before finally making this 9x14" Epson P800 print. The paper is Canson  Rag Photographique, which has a nice brightness without using optical brightening agents which can diminish over time. I used the Advanced B&amp;W mode of the Epson and dialed in my own printer settings for a soft sepia tone. It wasn't my intention when first taking the photo, but I think the warm tone gives an Atget look to this classic French building.</p> <p>I've looked at draft copies of my photos dozens of times over the years before getting down to making quality, matted presentations of my favorites. There is a huge difference between seeing an image on screen and have a print you can hold in your hand, and a quality laser printer can be a great help in this process. I've been printing proofs with my laser printer (mostly b&amp;w) since the mid 1990s. Here are some camera phone copies of this week's work in progress.</p> <hr /><p> </p></div> </div></div> <div class="field--item"><div class="paragraph paragraph--type--colorbox-paragraph paragraph--view-mode--default"> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="http://danmurano.com/sites/default/files/2017-10/Vincent-de-paul1-b_0.jpg" title="St. Vincent de Paul.

Branches and rocks often tumbled down onto the graveled roof that leaked whenever it rained. Parking was on residential side streets, and public transportation was a shadowy walk through a shuttered neighborhood.</p> <p>Faux-oak paneled walls surrounded the oval bar and a pool table on the upper level, and table seating overlooked the lower level, which had an oversize stage with a dressing room and a dance floor lit up by strings of Christmas lights flashing to disco beats. An industrial gas heater hanging from the ceiling rumbled like an idling bus through the long Pittsburgh winters, and in summer, pedestal fans churned sweltering air, mixing cigarette smoke with the smell of sour beer.</p> <p>Our bartender staged a walkout with her customers shortly after we took over, saying she said she didn't like the way we were running the place. Fortunately, I had known Pittsburgh's gay scene for years, so&nbsp; my friends and I fanned out through the bars to bring in new business. Friends brought their friends and we collected a congenial mix of gay and straight patrons who found the atmosphere homey and comfortable. Some came just for the homemade meals that mom cooked on Wednesdays and Sundays. It was a family operation.</p> <p>Among our new customers were actors from local theater groups, among them, Gorman Lowe, who also became a good friend. Gorman had recently played a seriously overweight King Herod in <em>Jesus Christ, Superstar, </em>furiously pedaling an exercise bike while singing his part. He was a brilliant actor and playwright, and a very witty man. Gorman recognized the club's potential for theater, and it wasn't long before he proposed a theater production designed for our humble stage. His and fellow producer / actor KC's&nbsp; musical comedy, <em>Bosom Buddies</em>, was the first in a string of performances by dozens of multi-talented actors, singers, choreographers, costume designers and musicians. Each show was written, directed and scored by the actors, who usually also played the leading roles. They were comedic geniuses, and audiences loved them.</p> <h2><em>The Wizard of Odds</em></h2> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/100" hreflang="en">Photos</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/499" hreflang="en">Pittsburgh - historical</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/88" hreflang="en">Portraits</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/101" hreflang="en">Studio photography</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/496" hreflang="en">Theater photography</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/93" hreflang="en">Black and white</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/94" hreflang="en">Color negative</a></div> </div> <section> <a id="comment-131"></a> <div class="comment comment--type-comment comment--view-mode-default ds-1col clearfix"> <div property="schema:text" class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Oh my goodness!

Borrow or buy photo books, visit galleries and attend exhibitions. Pay attention to how other photographers present their work.</p> <p>When I left my hometown in the 1980's, I packed my car with clothes, my camera gear and darkroom, and a stack of carefully chosen photography books. Some were technical volumes and others were collections of photographs. Two I especially loved were collections of work by Henri Cartier-Bresson and Andre Kertesz. I also had a thick volume called: <em>Photography: Venice '79</em> that contained photo essays, writings, and a wide range of images. These books and others inspired me to branch out and experiment.</p> <p>Read, look, and think about what you see, and then go out and make images.</p> <h3>Don't give up</h3> <p>There were years when I made no pictures at all. I got absorbed in writing, living, surviving ... and I regret not having photos to show for those times, but life happens. I remember and sometimes mourn the pictures I trashed, but at the time, paring down was a necessity. I do regret having thrown away negatives and slides. Once in a while, I come across a lousy print or a contact sheet and wish I could make a new print. Oh well, maybe those images only look better in memory anyway. Still, don't be too quick to toss your work in the trash.</p> <p>However your photographic adventure works out for you, it's important not to get discouraged. Keep working and enjoy what you do. That's the key to any success.</p> <p> </p> <p>Related link: <a href="/photography/what-can-you-do-old-roll-kodachrome">What can you do with an old roll of Kodachrome?</a></p></div> </div></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>When did I learn to love looking at photos? Probably, when I started making them. A more interesting question might be, when did I start <em>seeing </em>them?</p> <p>Before computers took over my time in the 1990's, I read every photo magazine that came into my hands. Some of them taught me to make better photos, while others left me lusting for gear and gadgets and salivating over camera ads that promised to ratchet my skills beyond the nth level of greatness.</p> <p>I miss the look and feel of those old cameras. I miss their ruggedness, their mechanical dials, the whirring springs, light meter needles, flapping mirrors, and hinged backs I would swing open to load up with whatever choice of film my budget made affordable. Whether it was color or black and white, negative or slide, high speed or low speed - each choice was deliberate, and so were the frames I exposed.</p> <p>Four or five rolls of film were sometimes all I had to last me a month, so I exercised care over how many frames I exposed at one time. That mindset persisted well into the days when I stashed bricks of film in the freezer. I learned to enjoy the slow and meditative process of previsualization and evaluating how focal length, film type, processing and printing might change what I saw in front of my lens.</p> <p>Digital cameras remove the consideration of film type, and huge memory cards and rapid-fire shutters wreak havoc with my meditative process. Too often, it's 20 frames in a a minute, followed by chimping over the screen to see if the exposure is right. I miss the mystery of waiting to look and the magic of chemical science, and have yet to master the discipline of checking only the histogram and ignoring a preview that never seems to capture the magic I see through the lens. Each method has its advantages.</p> <p>When I use film (and I still do), I usually set it aside for processing later, so "chimping" happens months, if not years after pressing the shutter release. My record processing gap was 23 years for a roll of Kodachrome that I <a href="/photography/what-can-you-do-old-roll-kodachrome" target="_blank" title="See the images here.">developed as black and white</a> after commercial processing was no longer available. It was magic pulling those tack-sharp negatives out of the film tank.</p> <p>I love how photography brings my life back to me.</p> <h3>Have fun and be a better photographer</h3> <p>When people ask me how to improve their photography, the best advice I can offer is:<em> Study your photos</em>.</p> <p>Study your photos before you press the shutter release, and study them when you see them on screen. Even better, make prints and tack them up where you can look at them every day. You may be surprised to see something different each time you look. Ask yourself what makes one image stronger than one pinned beside it. What weakens the image? What is the subject? Were you close enough, or too far away? Are you sick of seeing it after a week?</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/83" hreflang="en">Matting and framing</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/78" hreflang="en">Editing your work</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/61" hreflang="en">Digital photography</a></div> <div class="field--item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/60" hreflang="en">Film photography</a></div> </div> <section> <a id="comment-41"></a> <div class="comment comment--type-comment comment--view-mode-default ds-1col clearfix"> <div property="schema:text" class="field field--name-comment-body field--type-text-long field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Thanks for this great piece here,Dan.
