    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Hey Everyone..

    I had a client wanting some heavy PP for some pictures. Quite frankly, I'm a minimalist on the PP side. If it isn't out of the camera how I like it, it isn't going to happen. However, the client wanted a bit of an artistic flair.

    I could use some CC on this... Thanks!

    Thanks Matt. Yes, a little too dark to use the longer lens and still stop the action. I did take a few with it at first, but didn't post any of those. Pleasant Grove Vikings and Payson Grizzlies (Jr. High, in both cases).

    Re: Even More Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Albert: Very stylish portrait.

    Jason: I'll be the first to weigh in. Let me say that I over-process quite often (and then start over). I've been consciously trying to tone it down. The background and the mother seem over-saturated when compared to the sweater and the baby. To me, they pull the eye first, when you probably want the baby to be the initial focus, then the mother. I like the composition and the general hues; but, the variation in color values detract. My 2 cents.

    Cheers,

    Matt... I'm with ya. Frankly, I blew the shot. I was just following her around the house with the baby and was using spot metering and forgot to take into account the window behind her, so it's literally blown out.

    Thankfully, she wanted an artistic baby close up, so I came up with this:

    Thank you Jason. I'm honored. I like to include the mother's hands to give some scale, and a sense of the maternal connection. I've also found that stopping down just a bit with the 85 gives a little depth and detail that I'd lose shooting that lens wide open.

    Enjoying your posts, and looking forward to more.

    The young lady with the laptop in the high-key setting is absolutely gorgeous, Albert. Perfect colors, skintone, and overall sharpness on a high-key background! Great composition and mood, too. I would use this as a standard for comparison on a number of levels. Great Work!

    Thanks! You are SOOOOOOOO RIGHT about this town VIBRATING!!!!! I really can't ever remember this much commotion about any football game at any time in any era. N.O. is a long-time party town, but this town (now bigger than N.O. by a good margin) is beginning to drown out the fans in that city to our south!

    The lone boy in the picture (my grandson Cameron) has been the only male out of six grandchildren until the 18th of December '09 - when Braden, his new cousin, was born. He is ecstatic!!!! to be releived of that situation. This is a picture of Cameron with his new cousin (Braden) flanked by Cameron's dad and Braden's father. Look at the beam on his face! /URL][/QUOTE]

    John, you're really not going to take a picture of me, are you...I've had WAY too much Champagne (Barbara C. - a neighbor, at our Progressive Dinner during '09).
    I' really enamored with the way the 85mm 1.4D lens renders in normal, party environments indoors. It's almost as good as my 135mm f/2.0DC outside!

    Very nice John -- I love the 135/2...it is my general purpose tele, and I love the way it draws.

    Here are a few from last night...I went out to photograph on a cold night, had very little in the way of aurora, but then and went to photograph the geothermal powerplant that heats most of Reykjavík. It was pretty dark...a moon would have helped.







    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!
    My lab is here: http://www.customphotolab.is and on facebook

    JohnA: Well you took her picture anyway. The 85 f/1.4 is one of my favorite lenses.

    DavidK: Beautiful landscape and "edgy" portrait. It is an overused word.

    JohnA: Stunning portrait of your beautiful granddaughter.

    Stuart: Those are great night shots. The one with the aurora's beautiful. Good job getting the power plant and the sky. If I might ask: what lens and exposures were you using?

    Cheers,

    Another winner Matt. I really found myself drawn in by the vanishing point effect of the lighting on the ceiling. Nice.

    Lloyd: Thanks. The multiples lines of light do provide a nice sense of depth. Cheers.

    My computer is too slow, my clock is too fast, my father is in hospital and I'm running around in circles. Here's a photo anyway, from Singapore earlier this week. See you when I surface, if ever.

    D80 with 300mm f/4 @ f/4.5
