Sneak peek from the Nikon D600

I did a shoot with the new Nikon D600 today. Had a great time with it, and lots more to come very soon, but I can’t wait until my favorite RAW converters start supporting it. Luckily I use custom camera profiles in-camera, and the JPGs aren’t too shabby. My first pet peeve is that you […]

Review: Nikon 28mm f/1.8G

Specs and pricing info It was not all that long ago that Nikon prime users had few good options. There was a slew of old manual-focus glass, but if you wanted fast, wide lenses you were either stuck with kludgy older lenses like the 35mm f/2 or the extremely expensive, and then discontinued, 28mm f/1.4.

Diva.

One more of Kelsie before things start to get really geeky around here … I’ve got some exciting stuff coming in, and that means I finally need to get around to reviewing my new secret weapon first. — Camera: Nikon D3s Lens: 7-image “Brenizer method” panorama with the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G (equivalent of 50mm f/0.8 […]

Braving the Oncoming Storm

The easy part of this shot was the posing and the lighting. The hard part is convincing a bride that yes, it’s going to start raining in a minute, but that’s OK because I can do the shot in 45 seconds. Thank you for the trust, Joey! — Camera: Nikon D3s Lens: Sigma 12-24mm f/4.5-5.6 […]

She’s Got Kelsie Fields Eyes…

Some of you may remember Kelsie from my adventures in Boise. Well, she’s been visiting the city and is off to Italy soon, so I knew we had to shoot even though my schedule is crazy. I’ve been inspired by the Brenizer method contest, so I wanted to get a bit ambitious with it. Thanks […]

Brenizer Method Contest Results: THE WINNERS!

Drum roll please… (Honorable mentions are here and here) It’s been a long road putting together the first contest on this blog. First, securing the generous support of B&H Photo and Video, and then putting together a team of judges and procedures that would make the contest as fair as possible and the final set […]
