"March Contest - Tools"
Mon 03-Mar-14 02:59 PM by dm1dave

Lowden, US
          

The March contest theme is Tools.

All tools are acceptable -- woodworking, yard, kitchen, etc

Be sure to enter your image title in the subject line - don't simply reply without changing the subject line.

Here are a couple of sample images from Geoff Bayliss.


Participating in our monthly contests can help us to become better photographers. We can see and learn from all of the entries as our members showcase their best work each month.

These monthly contests are the preliminary rounds for the Best of Nikonians Photo Contest where you have the opportunity to win attractive prizes and have your images highlighted in the Winners Galleries and published in the eZine.

The top images will be selected by the winner of the previous months challenge and will be included in a poll for members to vote for the winning photo. Please keep in mind that images will be selected based on image quality, subject matter, relevance to the theme, and creativity just to name a few.

The winning image will be added to the Monthly Challenge Winner’s Gallery for the Macro and Close-Up Forum.

We look forward to seeing how you fulfill this challenge!

Good luck!!!

RULES:
-- Post up to 5 images but only one image per post
-- Include shooting info so we can learn from each other
-- Previously posted images are welcome but not previous contest winners.
-- When posting please do so by hitting the ‘reply’ link below this top post, not the reply link to another post.
-- Include a title in the subject line
-- Capture must be shot with a Nikon camera and any lens
-- Comments are welcome but NO public critiquing, i.e., how to make it better. This is a contest so PM's are a better way to offer feedback
-- WARNING Posts that do not meet the spirit of the challenge will not be selected as finalists and may be periodically removed by the moderators without notice.

Note: The number of finalists will be proportional to the number of entries. 50+ post will have 6 finalists, less than 50 will be 5 finalists, and 25 or less will have only 4 finalists.

This is a home made bubble level that fits on my D200 hot shoe. I salvaged the hot shoe adapter from a broken flash, bought the yellow bubble level for about $2.50 and fastened it to the shoe adapter with some double backed tape. It works great!

I stumbled upon this crime scene today; it was awful there was carrot juice everywhere! Amazingly the carrot was still alive, so I called 911 and took this picture after the police arrived. I went to the hospital to visit the carrot, and he looked pretty bad with tubes stuck in him everywhere. I was there when the doctor came in and told the carrot that he had good news and bad news. The carrot asked "What's the good news?" and the doctor answered "You are going to live". The carrot asked "Then what's the bad news?" The doctor responded "Your going to be a vegetable the rest of your life!"

Carrot and knife taken with D200 and 200 mm Micro Nikkor mounted on a Star D 100 tripod. f/16, 1.8 sec MLU, ISO 200. This image was processed in Capture NX. The rest was created in PS CS3 Extended and then composited.

When I was working, the guy who ran contracts used to tell me punny jokes - he was a big fan of "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes". So this whole thing is based upon the joke he told me one day. It is a true "groner".

I didn't know Peta protected plants. In fact I have a joke that I made up about an agency that did support plant rights and protested against inhumane processing of plant based materials. But I am not sure I can post it here as it involves a particular Post cereal for the punch line.

This is a vintage otoscope made in the 1960s. My daughter called it the ear looker inner thingie.
Low key shooting to tame some of the reflections. The shallow DOF is deliberate.

D700, Nikkor 58mm AFS, f/4, 1/60 sec, -1EV, ISO 3200 (love this camera), hand held.

Sorry Dale but it seems your really sharp image inspired me more than I thought. I found my slide rule and also found a manual on line, which I have to go through. I need to read the manual because all I remember is how to multiply with the slide rule. But since you got me thinking, I decided to put together some other old tools that have been replaced by cad programs today. No spilled ink or fancy drafting tools required any longer. When I got done setting it up and photographing it. I was first just going to post to my gallery. But I decided it was different enough from your excellent sharp image that focuses only on the slide rule that I have posted it to the contest. I still owe you some comments on how to use the slide rule and I will post some key things later.

If you are interested in learning more about your Slide Rule, you can probably find your manual on line. I don't know what scales you have on yours but I have C,D, CI, DI CF, DF, S,T, ST, Sq root cube root, and some other scales I am reading about now. I will post a few comments on each in a few days. To search I just typed the name and model number in a search engine and found a site that has copies of many slide rule manuals. I had forgotten all of the things you could do with the slide rule besides multiplication and division, Aside from the low resolution, it is very powerful and quick to use.

Dale:

I finally scanned the Slide rule Manual. I know you will recall that the C&D scales can be used for multiplication and division. You put the index of C over the first number on D then move the Curser to the second number on C and read the answer on D. For division you find the number you are dividing on D and move the divisor on C over that number and read the answer at the C index. All the rest of the scales are primarily calculation aids. For example DF and CF are just the C&D scales folded to start at pi, and are handy for calculations that involve pi, like circular areas and circumferences, that are easily just read off those scales in conjunction with the D scale. The S scale compute Sine's and Cosines, the T scale for Tangents and Cotangents and the ST for small Sine, Cosine and Tangent and Cotangent angles. The CI and Di scales are used to find reciprocals. You place the cursor on the C scale number and read its reciprocal right under that cursor on the C1 scale.

I also have folded square root and Cube route scales. You just set your cursor on the number you want a root for on the D scale and read the answer under the cursor on the cube root or square root scale. On the back of my rule I have folded log scales which can also be used to do reciprocals and powers and also log calculations. In all it was fun to revisit a tool that required no batteries, allowed you to do complex calculations in the days before computers. Thanks to your post we all have taken a walk back down memory lane.
