    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Nathan, just curious, do you need to wear protective eye gear when photographing them or are you turned away when the welding starts?

    I imagine it took some experimenting to get the exposure right for the arcs and flash together? Can you meter the arcing?

    No way to really meter for the arcing as it tends to vary... lets just say it's BRIGHT. Looking into the arc is a recipe for eye damage so I never do... I always have the camera in front of my face once the welding starts and I have a dialog with the welder. I tend to line things up and then say GO! I then shut my eyes and shoot. After a bit of practice it really works well. I do a lot of welding photography for lokal industry and they seem to like it

    Live view will protect your eyesm but I dont like live view... this is one area where my fuji X-T1 excels as I can look at the arc on the electronic viewfinder with no fear of eye damage.

    Thanks Hulyss Not regretting the switch one bit so far! Wish the Nikon flashes had radio built in, but with the profoto B2 I can work lighter and with more power than speed lights when I don't want to lug the full size portfolio heads on location... but still.. radio on speed lights would be very nice.. Apart from that its all positive!

    Interesting to see how that lens changes character when stopped down to f/2, Nathan. Suddenly, it looks like an interesting option.

    And it still got lovely out of focus areas at f2.. I really like this lens! Not surgically sharp at 1.4, but already gets sharper from 1.6.. that said its got good contrast and looks better wide open than many 50mm primes I have tried.. Is it as sharp as the Canon 1,2L? Maybe not quite wide open.. but so far it does not seem to exhibit the focus shift problem that the 1.2 has... But to be honest I really like the "character" of this lens... a subjective thing, but I just like the "look" of the images I can make with this lens... in fact more so than the 1.2L

    Nathan, how does it compare with the Fuji 56mm f1.4…… I know there is a change in perspective …. just wondering which route I should go for portraits…..

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    I love the 56 1.2 fuji! I wrecked my standard version on an offshore lifeboat in the arctic last autumn.. I now have the APD version. It is sharp wide open and gets sharper as you stop down. I rarely use it wide open in face filling portraits as the DOF is so narrow.. but F2 is a nice balance. The OOF areas are very smooth as expected. I should probably do a head to head test, but I never seem to get around to such things... The 58 nikkor is a great environmental portrait lens with wonderful character... better than the fuji 35,mm which is razor sharp but a bit clinical and lacks the character of the 58 nikkor or 56 APD fujinon.. imo. But If I am travelling light then the 56 1.2 is in my bag with the x-pro1 or X-T1. At some point I may just get rid of my X-T1s.. I have given one away to the mrs with the two zooms... (18-55 55-300) and she loves it... but for me the X-Pro1 is still what brought me to fuji... so for the foreseeable future x-pro , 14mm, 23mm, 35mm. 56mm will be staying...

    Thanks... The blog is new.. not sure yet.. maybe I should go english... get more hits thats for sure

    I do my Black and whites in Lightroom on the whole... I have tried VCSO and I have NIK silver efex of course.. but for portraits I most often make my own conversion using the colour mixer in the black and white tab. I also use curves and levels (via the histogram) to adjust the look, and often on male portraits I use some mid tone contrast adjustment with the clarity slider

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Here in the Northeast part of the US, (I'm in Maine) most boats are removed from the water in mid-late Fall and shrink wrapped with a heavy, white plastic material that's designed to protect the boats from Winter weather. Making pictures of shrink wrapped boats isn't really too interesting but I was at a boatyard recently where a fair number of boats were laid up, and decided to look at things from a different perspective. I find it useful to sometimes look at things that are normally considered mundane, and see them in a new light, as it were. These were all shot with the D810 and Siggy 50 Art.

    … I'm gravitating to the 35mm end of its range… I wonder if that's a sign that I really need to get the Sigma 35mm f1.4 ART?

    Nathan - I'm glad to see that you were using the 300mm f2.8 (an amazing piece of glass in itself) - as smoking is bad for you - and we wouldn't want you to get in harms way….

    Re: Fun with Nikon Images

    From this weekends Formula One Grand Prix in Shanghai/ China:

    Congrats to Lewis Hamilton it truly was his weekend:











    I left the old D3 at home and will probably retire it for good from racing.
    Tried a D800 this time and like the flexibility with DX crops in camera.
    I wish it had a proper full-size body, double CF card slots and a larger buffer though. It seems like a great second body to a D4s.
    Still the D800 does not seem to be the compromise to upgrading that 300/2.8 to a 400/2.8 or longer (those grandstands are faaaar away and I am stacking TCs already).

    Nice photos, Dirk. As a second sports body to a D4s, I would look at the D7200. It's the fastest Nikon except the D4s and gives you the extra reach that you sometimes need. I don't shoot much racing anymore, but if I did, that would be my choice.
