Life can be a time suck

Excuses, excuses, excuses. Almost six months have gone by since my year end summary. So what's been going on? Quite a bit, although none of it would be considered earth shattering.

Learning the Z7 has been slow. I have yet to get my standard noise reduction profiles created (I probably should just get a new NR plugin). I swapped my HDD for an SSD, and accidentally wiped out a lot of my NR profiles and PS actions. Backup, backup, backup. And don't erase anything until several months after you're satisfied everything is back to normal.

Lens count has grown just a little. I caved and got a Nikon 24-70mm f/4 S to satisfy the native lens craving. It does live up to its reputation for being sharp and contrasty across the frame, although without the isolation I'm used to with an f/2.8 lens. I also found a Contax 50mm f/1.4 AEJ (ninja stars!) that is sadly too dreamy wide open. I'm not sure that it's any better than the f/1.7 (more ninja stars!), and I'm too lazy to do a comparison test.

So that's it for now. My Blogger template (or plugin) is now broken as the slideshow on the right side is gone. Time to hunt for a new template and plugin (suggestions/recommendations are highly appreciated).

Oh, and I've become more active on Instagram; drop by and say hi.
