    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    D700 arrived today. Here are some test shots:











    All shots RAW developed in Aperture 2. Either Cv 58mm SL II or Nikkor 35mm f/2 AF-D. Last shot is ISO 3200 handheld and the only light source is the Nintendo DS in my son's hand.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks. I was hoping my test shots were on par with the rest of the images presented in this thread. MF guys notwithstanding, there is a lot of leeway in the D700 NEFs and these are 12 bit ones.

    No, the avatar stays. I may not own an M8 right now but I will again (or maybe an M9).

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    I agree. I'm impressed with the MF, but it only goes so far. The dynamic range isn't much better, if at all, and unless one wants to print very large... well, 35mm works for me in 90% of the cases.

    I'd keep that avatar too.. it's a good one!

    I'm impressed with that CV 58. Is it as good as it appears here?

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    The cloud shot and the pic of my son are with the Nikkor 35mm f/2 AF-D the rest are with the CV 58mm which is quite a gem once you nail the focus. Being a f/1.4 the plane of focus is razor thin. The D700 focus assist LEDs are immensely more useful than the focus confirmation light in my D300.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Here's a shot inspired by the work of Natalie "Miss Aniela" Dybisz.

    "Three Faces of Mel"


    First attempt. Need a little more practice and better control of the lighting. Better to use solid, non-flexible props (editing the hammock was a pain). And I need to plan the positioning of the model a little better, but I am pleased with this first result.

    Thanks Jorgen, much appreciated! I hear you on the b&w issue, been having a lot of fun with that genre over the last year or so too.

    There are times when the Betterlight probably might not be the best choice for this sort of work based upon many of the dark corners and venues you encounter in these places. For instance a line time of 1/8 sec will take over 15 minutes for a full res scan plus the setup time. However when the conditions are right you would be in IQ heaven using a Betterlight.

    A little planning, a cooperative model, a tripod, a D700 + 35mm af-d f/2, a Metz 58A-1 flash, and a bit of Photoshop wizardry.

    First, plan the shot. Sketch out what you want to do or do it in your head if you have the gift of 3D visualization

    Second, mount the camera on the tripod and frame the scene. Take test shots to get the lighting right. You want to use f/8 or higher to keep the frames' dof constant. Disable Auto-ISO.

    Third, take you sequence of shots moving the model from spot to spot and making sure that none of the other props are disturbed. Check histograms to make sure lighting levels are close.

    Fourth, open the entire sequence of shots in Photoshop and find the shot with the model furthest back in the scene. This will be the background layer. Add the other shots as layers in order of furthest to nearest the camera. The Background layer is furthest away, Layer 1 is closer, Layer 2 closer than Layer 1, etc.

    Fifth, name the layers to remind you where in the scene the model is located.

    Sixth, add Layer Masks that Hide All to all layers except the background. Select white as a foreground color and paint the layer mask with a soft-edged brush, revealing the model in various positions. Remember to click on the mask in each layer before painting. The layer names will serve as a guide where to paint. Work up the layers to the topmost one.

    Seventh, import the PSD file into your program of choice (Aperture 2 in my case) and adjust the image to taste.

    Done.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Just remember to order the layers from back to front so that as you unveil the model in subsequent layers the z-order is maintained correctly.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Hi everyone! I just joined this forum as I found it seems like there are a lot of knowledgeable folks around here to learn from and the community seems to be very mature and friendly.
    I'm currently a college student (non-art major) but I love photography and it is probably my #1 hobby. I shoot mainly architectural and landscapes with a Canon 20D, but the other day I tried out my friend's Nikon D3. It seems like a pretty nice camera, but not for me, as I'd prefer something with a bit more resolution. Nevertheless, it is a serious piece of kit and is a great tool.
    Here is one of the photographs from when I tried out the Nikon D3

    nikon d3 . nikon 35mm f/2.0 . 35mm
    iso 200 . f/16.0
    It was an HDR, done in picturenaut and edited in photoshop cs4.

    As a kid we used to drive through this old steel mill town on the way to visit relatives further south almost every weekend, long before the interstates were built. Cool image, thanks for posting. Very different world back then.

    thanks, if you are ever around let me know we have a few easy places we could explore and you could set your better light up in here...I shot my mamiya 7 and I am bringing my fuji rangefinder back as well to shoot this place, it was built in 1908 and the town doesn't know what to do with it, there is some squatting going on or did go on at one time but nobody was there...also across the street it looks like the bessmer methodist church might be abandoned as well...

    I have so little experience with high speed strobes that I am reluctant to comment other than this shot looks great to me. probably more about the photog than the gear IMHO

    Her parents loved the print I gave them.

    Another fun picture by my favorite Nikon DSLR - D300, using an old Leica M (an earlier model made by Leitz Canada) 90mm Summicron lens with a special adapter. Aperture set at f2.8. Thank you for looking. Leica 77

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    I am teaching this method to my photo workshop kids as an end-of-school year project. I gave them the idea now so they can start planning the shots. I will be going over the techniques they'll need to use to craft such shots in the next few workshops and the school will provide them access to PC's with Photoshop CS3 on them.

    Here's an image from a ramble in the woods this afternoon. The light was filtering through the surrounding trees and lighting up this conifer.

    Thanks Gents!

    Here's another from the same walk. I tried Topaz Adjust out on this one. Not really sure I like this but it's certainly different.

    How do you like Topaz Adjust? I've used the trial versions and never could get anything I like out of them. I just don't want to fork over the cash that Lucis Art asks for its plugin.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Carlos,

    To be honest, I'm really not sure how much use it will get. It seems to have, for my tastes at least, limited settings that I'd use with any great regularity. While I quite like creating "art" rather than straight reportage, this particular look is easily overused.

    Cheers,

    From a recent trip to Puerto Rico... the light was just right for this one.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Having been taught by Catholic nuns, it's been a while since I've seen one fully frocked. They usually were normal clothing nowadays (at least the Sisters of Mercy do here in Florida anyway). Great shot.

    This reminds me of a funny true story that happened at the Winn Dixie by my parents' house. The monseigneur at our church (Murphy was his name, IIRC) went to the supermarket to buy the groceries for the priests. It was laundry day and all his frocks and uniforms were in for washing so he shopped in regular street clothes. When he was checking out the groceries, the young girl at the register (a parishioner) looked up and blurted out:

    "Oh! Monseigneur Murphy! I didn't recognize you with your clothes on!"

    Five seconds later she nearly fainted from embarrassment.
