The fallow deer season closed here at the end of March. You can buy Tasmanian farmed venison though...they treat the animals well and it's yummy stuff.

Ultra macro of planthopper. Thirty exposures taken using computer controlled macro rail and focus stacked in Zerene Stacker.

Thanks. I can do that with a standard macro lens, but you sure jump if the spider runs at its reflection in the lens. :-O

This rig needs dead 'uns that don't move.

That’d be cool if you could capture electrons whizzing around the nucleus of a bug atom. I guess you’d need a pretty high shutter speed to freeze them in action though.

Maybe if you freeze the atom, the electrons will stop moving.

I'm on my second beer and it's still light...the day, not the beer.

I have used a scanning electron microscope not long after they first came out. You had to "plate" the bugs with gold in a vacuum chamber to get an image.

I made an app a couple of years ago that used free time-stretching libraries to raise/lower pitch without affecting tempo. Had lots of fun with it, including altering a track of Camarón (flamenco singer) so that he sounded like he was on helium. :))

Early this morning I finally found the scenario I had been envisioning to really test this 200-500. Piss poor light and an owl on a forest trail.

I wouldn't even bother trying in the circumstances previously, but the results are pretty pleasing now. Shot at 1/25s, ISO 800. I even took some at 1/15 which turned out clear enough. All handheld of course. Fuck yeah.

Nice. Damned if I could hold it that steady at 1/25th, even with stabilisation.

The lens does all the work for you, it’s magical.

Rumours are circulating that Adobe is considering doubling the monthly fee from $10 with a gig of cloud storage to $20 with a terabyte and Lightroom classic Lightroom CC and Photoshop.

Now Lightroom classic is easy to use, but is slow as a wet week, even on a fast rig; like all Adobe stuff it's bloatware. Anyway, I'm considering ditching it and switching to freeware. RawTherapee has just released a new version 5.6 which I'm now attempting to learn. It can do everything that Lightroom can do and much more (or Capture One, which costs a fortune) but it has a very steep learning curve. Still, I like the layout and the way all your image info is there without menu diving. There are heaps of free plug ins and scripts for it too. So far I'm very impressed and it's way faster. It also has one click exports to other programs or image hosting sites and social media. We'll see how I get on after I've come to grips with the oodles of ways to do things on it.

Must add RT has a decent tutorial wiki which I'm using now on a second screen. Helps a lot with learning the ropes. Still impressed.

I tried Raw Thera-pee once but found it a little overwhelming.

LR is annoyingly slow, but I would find it hard to give up now. Photoshop as well.

I rarely use Photoshop, except for using a resizing script for the web, which gives sharper images with more pop. However both RawTherapee and The Gimp can do the same thing. Exporting a Lightroom image to Photoshop takes fucking forever and sometimes crashes both. Fuck Adobe, I'm really enjoying RT. It's got all my lens corrections built in (both Adobe's set and LensFun, which are better IMO) and you can set that to automatic or manual. It is overwhelming at first to be sure, but by following their order of operations in the tutorial wiki I've already managed to edit some test images. Colour management is really impressive. Also it's the only RAW converter that uses floating point calculations, so you don't get rounding errors that can impact things like shadow detail. For a free program its great, and damned fast compared to Adobe.
