I recently spent some time revisiting some of my Nikon 1 V2 butterfly images, and reprocessing them in post. Since I made some changes to my approach to post processing by adding Topaz Denoise AI, I thought it would be interesting to re-do some old RAW files from 2015. All of the photographs in this article were captured handheld with a Nikon 1 V2, fitted with a 1 Nikon 30-110 mm f/3.8-5.6 zoom, and using MOVO extension tubes.

Given the risks, I have not used my camera gear in any indoor, public venues since February.
