She did a really striking pose with the huge digger throning on the top of the soil downtown Copenhagen just came together for a really nice poster shot.

Af-s 80-200mm f/2.8 @ 2.8 80mm D850

Indeed she did. Great shot, she appears powerful and resourceful. F2.8 works very well to show her and tell the set up story.

Hi everyone,

After 2 years when everything else than work and family has stopped, covid meant a lot more work, I'm finally back on NG. The big change is that I am now retired, meaning hopefully a bit more chosen time. It is good to find back so many familiar faces and to cach up with the threads.

I do hope our in person meetings will also resume.

Cheers.

This is the anchoring on my travel Sachtler to keep the Burzynski fixed rock solid to the tripod.

The spare part from my old Nikonos gear serves as the washer as well. The brushed aluminium doesn't being into water either.

I do have flatter setups on other Sachtlers, but the one here is easily taken apart when I put the tripod into airline luggage.

A contrast to Luc's shot -- woke up this morning to first snow of the season. People always tend to forget it will come and bring with it slippery roads :)

Oh, wow...

Wow indeed!

My Burzynski head came with a short bolt.
Quick snap from the inside of the tripod (ENG 2 CF, 100mm bowl).

A big washer and a 3/8" bolt from below is the usual remedy. That is what I use with my Burzynski heads. In some cases it was possible to repurpose parts from  flash setup for my old Nikonos. For near-ground work and on ice, I use cut-down Sachtlers fortified with additional spikes in stainless steel.

The Sacthlers work well under water, but it is important to rinse them thoroughly if used in sea water. Once in a while, add some protective oil to the screws as they will rust over time if the tripod is often submerged.

Women at work. Nice capture.
