Good news first . My friend Coby just gave me a nice older 20mm 2.8 af lens! I have a new tool to learn how to use. What fun!
Bad news. I damaged my right and dominant eye this past winter, it will be forever bad. I see double and blur and funny light. The really funny thing is, I thought my cameras auto focus was broken . Was about to send it in to Nikon for repair when I discovered it was me that is broken. I will get over being depressed about it and move on I guess.
I am trying to learn how to take photos with my left eye, but a major problem is doing post processing. I just cannot see the details correctly to work in photoshop. I cannot use both eyes and with the bad one shut it is problematic. I suppose with time I will train myself to be left eye dominant and adjust. It has been 4 months since the accident (wire gouged me eye) so I guess it will take a long time. I would hate to give up something I love to do.
I have already given up rafting and kayaking because of two shoulder surgeries. God how I miss class 5 whitewater!! Gave up running because of knees and ankle injury. Gave up snow boarding because of knees. I am running out of body parts!!!
So if my images seem “off” hang in there…maybe I will get it worked out.
