David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

Carol and Laurin’s Annual Thanksgiving Dinner.

Carol and Laurin from across the street invited me to their annual Thanksgiving celebration dinner. This year Carol used some Bittersweet vines from my yard for decorations. I took a number of images with my new Nikon 1 V1 cameara, with a 10 mm f/2.8 lens. I was trying to see what I can do with a small camera without a flash. I have 28 images to share, but am only including a few for this post. I’ll work on a slide-show or time-lapsed movie to add with the full set of images.

    looks like a fine time was had by all. Do you love your new little camera?

      So far I am impressed with the image quality. For its size, it is heavier than you would think. The V1 has an electronic view finder (100% view) which is better than most P&S cameras where the only view is the back LCD. Many of the controls for the Nikon 1 are in menu items. For example, I like the Leica X1 because both shutter speed and appature have dials on the top of the camera. With the Nikon 1 V1, you need to go into the menus to control. Also missing is the ability to shoot brackets (for an HDR). One of the main reasons I got a mirrorless camera is to use with my telescope — however need to wait on availability of the adapter from the Nikon 1 to Nikon F lenses.
