As I’m really a fan of black and white photography I thought I’d post a few
pics that I’ve converted from colour (Canadian spelling Mandrake).
The turtle is a living model of the old guy you posted. I asked him to smile 
and he did his best. He is eating a purple flower by the way. Colourized Geico Gecko (added pic)DSC_2556.jpgDSC_7106-6-2.jpgDSC_2158-2-2-5-2-copy-2-2.jpgDSC_2556-2-2-copy-3-copy-3-3.jpgDSC_1692-3-2-2.jpgDSC_4389-copy-2-3-2.jpg

Love the lizard, or whatever it is.

Addendum:
I know, it’s a Geico Gecko.

Wish this was the Geico Gecko lol. Unfortunately it’s just a rather small lizard
living at Butterfly Gardens here in Victoria.

Very nice set of pictures, Dale. I really can see how your photography getting better. I really thought that I would like green lizard more,  but it looks very good in B&W as well because on all the texture.

Thank you for the kind comments Oksana! I owe a lot to you for all the hours you have put into
making those fantastic tutorials! Can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched – and learned from them.
I really like colour images but I think that B&W can be as interesting and even more so with the right
subjects.

Dale,

Fantastic shots. just curious, how close did you have to get to the lizard with a 35 mm lens?

i don’t know if it’s the lens or D7000 camera but the images are very good.

Thank you for the wonderful comments. I took the picture from about 18 inches or so away.
The lizard was housed in a glass enclosure. To avoid reflections I put the camera lens against the
glass and used manual focus to get the shot. I then cropped it in post processing so it would fill
the frame. The 35mm 1.8 is a great, sharp as a tack inexpensive and light little lens that I use a 
lot. I also have an 18-55mm inexpensive lens that came as a kit bundled with a lot of mid range
and lower end Nikons. The D7000 is an awesome camera and I used it so much that I eventually
wore out the shutter. Bought a D7100 to replace it. Still have my 7000 and might spend
the $300 or so to get it fixed. The D7100 is also an awesome camera and I’ll probably wear it out too lol!
