Anthony's English Homework
copying words

Anthony sometimes has homework from his “English Kids” activity at his kindergarten. Despite the Nikon D700's horrible focusing screen, I seem to have gravitated to really thin depths of focus lately, perhpaps because with the bad focusing screen I can't really see just how thin it is. Anyway, I sapped a couple of shots of Anthony doing his homework...

that is crazy DoF. What lens are you using?

Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 The basic data from each shot, including lens, is provided directly under each image. —Jeffrey

You know. You could check the images on the preview screen. That is one of the big reasons for the transition to digital. You don’t have to rely on the focus preview. I rarely use it on my D200.

Er…I hate to even bring it up, but maybe light reading glasses would help discern the focus in the camera a little clearer. And Anthony writes so neatly. Must take after his Mom.

It’s a good thing nobody will ever know about the foreshadowing of Anthony’s difficulties of getting the letters of his own name right: that nobody will find out that once you made some kind of greeting card, and you were so concerned with neatness that you spelled your name JEEF, and tried to hide the lower part of the second E with a ray from the shining sun just below it.

Good thing that’s a secret, huh?

Sorry to spoil your fun, but I think the cat was out of the bag on that when I wrote about it last year. —Jeffy
