Tulips (Studio)

Just got a beauty dish for headshots and portraits and wanted to see what the quality of light was like on objects, like this bouquet of tulips. Mola beauty dishes have a unique blend of hard and soft light with little background spill.

My mother’s matzah balls ready for Passover seder. Great soup and delicious matzah balls--not too dense, not too light--and flavored with handmade shmaltz!

Magnolias (Union Square)

20110414_UnSq_Magnolias_Nikkor105VR-09
Rented two 100mm macro lenses during Adorama’s Passover break: the Nikkor 105mm F2.8 VR and Zeiss’s 100mm f2. Both are great, both are expensive. Will have to run some more tests in the studio to see whether either beats my 85mm tilt shift for sharpness. These were taken with a lowly D40 body.

The cherry blossoms and pear trees are in full bloom down south. D.C. is always about 2 weeks ahead of NYC. Kenwood, famed for its canopies of Yoshino cherries, is just about peaking.
