    Leif, between you and Jorgen, I'm starting to covet that S5. Looking forward to more!

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks, Lloyd! I also liked your similar reflexion effect in the portrait a lot! Is that the AF 1,4/50?

    Funny; the S5 feels so much like a D200 in handling and looks (well; it is a D200), but the files coming out of it are very different - and a lot easier to like! :-)

    Thank you. Leif. Yes, that is the AF version (not the new "G", but the prior version), although I typically shoot portraiture with it on Manual focus.

    Nice reflections. I particularly like the bus shot, so here's a bus without reflection

    S5 with Sigma 12-24mm @ 12mm and f/5.0

    And here's my kind of landscape

    S5 with Sigma 12-24mm @ 24mm and f/5.6



    S5 with Sigma 12-24mm @ 12mm and f/6.3



    Oh, and btw., I was rather impressed with the Sigma 12-24. The second photo is not corrected in any way. Still, it looks relatively straight and undistorted. One of the advantages of using a full frame lens on DX format?

    LOL! I know just how that works... and I love that old 55mm micro. One of my all-time favorite lenses for Nikon. Great shot either way!

    Lloyd, you are breaking the rules. Senior portraits are supposed to be boring, 13-on-a-dozen stuff and not beautiful and full of passion as the one you've posted

    Yes, you can. Apart from the technical stuff, portraits are all about communication between photographer and subject. You communicate.

    I too like the Sigma 12-24, its a true rectilinear design even @12mm and on FX camera. It definitely has less distortion than Nikon's 14-24 at 14mm and below. The difference in sharpness when stopped down isn't as much as some lead you to believe either. My only qualm with the lens is its slow AF but I use it in mf mode anyway.

    Stuart, I love your images of Icelandic mountains. Just finished reading and reviewing Arnaldur Indridasons latest book translated into Norwegian. You pics really give the mood for the disapperance of ErlendurŽs brother.

    More of Iceland, please. One day soon IŽll find a way to get there myself.

    Nice. B&w film still looks better than digital, and this reminds me that I loaded film in my OM-3 a couple of weeks ago.

    Thank, Jorgen. I'm still trying to decide if I really like this C-41 processed film. I think I still prefer silver, but it's growing on me.

    I've found that when scanned, the difference isn't too big, and it's very convenient

    Yes, the convenience is a big draw for me. I've got 4 or 5 more rolls in the refrigerator. We'll see how it goes.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks Leif, I am glad you like the images! I have a lot more at my website, but I will also be posting some more this weekend maybe. As for Arnaldur Indridason, he is really good isn't he? I have read all that they have translated into English...I think I will try to read one in Icelandic...it should be good practice. Have you read Henning Mankell? He is probably even better...certainly more well-known.

    And David -- thank you for compliments as well! It is a beautiful country here...you should come check it out at some point. Only a 5 hour flight from JFK...and 45 minutes of that is just sitting in the plane waiting to take off from JFK...
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!

    Thanks for the comments guys... Not sure about the angel part but she sure is easy on the eyes... First shot with the Nikon D3 and 70-200, this one with the Hy6/e75LV kit.

    David,

    I have two questions:

    1) What kind of lighting and setup did you use for both shots?
    2) Do you need any assistants for shoots like this?

    There's something about ships. They are kind of black and white by nature, or by design maybe?

    I love these high key shots for fashion and model portraits (not many "normal" humans can take this treatment)

    Anyway, really nice job.

    Wayne,

    1) The headshot was a three light setup plus a mirror for fill. The model was seated with the mirror below her at stomach height. The main was a Broncolor Satellite Soft Reflector roughly 3' directly in front of the model and above the camera. Second light was for the hair and third for the background.
    If you look at the catchlights in the model's eyes it will give you an idea of the lighting position. The second shot was a single light up high and about 45 degrees to model's left. The Broncolor lighting is great but I suspect the post processing plays a greater role in the final result... at least for the first shot.

    2) The line forms to the rear

    Extraordinary results, especially under the circumstances.

    What an amazing place... I'd love to see this one day.

    I think we have to put up a sign somewhere here:

    "Due to the dwindling mental health of some of those forum members who do not own a D700, members are kindly asked not to post photos at ISO 6400 or more."

    Nice photos, Scott. What lens and aperture for the first one?

    Smile Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Hello Lloyd,
    Many thanks for your kind words. My Nikon D300 Digital SLR automatically set its ISO to 2800 to cope with the prevailing lighting condition inside the Terra Cotta Warriors Museum in Xi'an, China. It is truly an amazing place to visit. Leica 77

    Hi Jorgen,

    That was shot with the 50mm Nikkor 1.4D, at f2.0 (and 1/400 sec!). A fast lens on a D700 is close to having night vision goggles!

    Hi heres a couple of pics I took over Easter whilst visiting my parents in Norfolk. The first is the local Church, the second is some Norfolk Graffiti ;-)
    Both taken with 35 F2 on D300 (first pic with graduated ND).

    Great pics Scott from your D700! I'm in constant awe of its low light capabilities.
