It's not all wobbly blurriness on here, sometimes I remember to switch on the AF.....boom tish.
Sheep, there are shed loads of the wooly critters around here, all sorts on all kinds of terrain, munching away converting all that grass into wool and meat. As an aside I'm running an experiment using Zwartbles wool in my compost layers, it's a milking sheep so the wool is a bit rough, anyhow the worms seem to love it so we'll have to see what the compost turns out like later this year...I'm digressing again...so sheep portraits, I know you'll have a favourite, just keep quiet about it.
Fuji X100v, F8, 1/60th ISO auto.
Windchill factor ...... just saying
Not what I was intending to do but my, that Northerly wind was finding it's way into all the nooks and crannies. I was all set to do some large joiner multi imaging, but this was not a day to be hanging about. So Jpeg multi imaging in camera working with between 3 to 9 images all taken and processed in camera, well there was a spank of Lightroom to up the contrast and clarity but I will set the camera up to do this next time and , with crossed fingers, hope the results are acceptable.
A wander around Girvan taking in the Jetty, harbour and play area and then the 'Showers' started, good thing is that you can see them looming over Arran as the set off scudding to here.
Long exposures and joiner multis on the way as long as I don't freeze to death first.
16 x 9 Jpegs, Fuji X100v, f 8, 1/250th and ISO Auto and Fuji Classic Chrome.
A trip up the coast to Kelburn Castle close to Largs to support our daughter who was setting up a designer / artisan event at the pavilion. First time here and we will be going back for a proper walkabout later this year.
So the camera is set on multi image mode, RAW this time, ISO on auto and working the shutter and aperture between 1/60th to 1/250th and f5.6 to f11.
Shooting RAW in multi image mode gives you all the separate shots on the card before making a combined image at the end of the stack. So you can shoot between 1-9 images to create a multi shot in camera instead of hoicking them all into Photoshop as a stack of layers. So these are all straight from the camera into Lightroom, they do need a pop of contrast and clarity although the option is there to do that in camera as well.
Multi mode allows you also to take just one shot, if you hit the disp/back button after you shoot it will then store the image as a single RAW file.
As the return of Bake-Off, Only Connects and Strictly Come Dancing tell us that we are already into Autumn, it's maybe a good time to get out and grab some of those Autumnal colours.
The Robbie Burns centre, so many Americans...the culture of Burns and his writings is a big draw in this part of Scotland and although I'd been to the café before I'd never done the Museum, Brig O' Doon, monument and cottage......a lot of Americans...just saying....
So Fuji X100V. JPEGS, multi image mode set to additive, film simulation Classic Chrome and off I toddled, a very mild spank in Lightroom Classic mainly to get something out of the shadows...so maybe this and the addition of the inbuilt ND filter...now there's a challenge.
Went on a road trip with added off grid campervanning to Argyll and Bute with stop offs at Forestry Commission car parks and met some nice folks and had glimpses of dark skies...just glimpses. I took my old Nikon D700, 20mm, 50mm, and 105mm lenses and after about 30 minutes of huffing and puffing realised the reason I had bought a Fuji X100V... so light so usable and a lot less stressful on the ol' knackerty knees. Got home and the pins of my CF reader bent so still not downloaded anything, grrrrrrrr
So back to the Fuji and a blast of utilising all the stuff that this little thing has under the hood. So inbuilt ND filter, Digital lenses and multi imaging ...all at once, why not...one annoying thing is if the camera goes into sleep mode you have to reset things all over again....did I say I'm shooting 16 x 9 JPEGS!!!!!!! In Jpeg mode you have a 72 mm and 100mm whilst in RAW its 50mm and 70mm...who knows why.
Still a wander down at Girvan and the Funfair is in town to see how I can push the camera, have to say no tripod work just all hand held and the film mode is Classic Chrome, pretty bright low sun day so the inbuilt ND did a fine job. Have the Infra Red filter to work on some early Autumn stuff so maybe another post soon. Here's some more from the beach wander.

What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
