D100 Appreciation thread.
3

We can't leave out the D100. I preferred the D100 over the D200 for my close-up work. The images just had a certain look that I liked.

Great to see you posting Ronnie, incredible work as usual. It wouldn't matter what camera body you used, your images have a look that everyone likes and aspires to achieve.

Re: D100 Appreciation thread.

Super shots Ronnie. I realized (when I went looking for the Moths) that there are many galleries on your site that I have not really looked at. That will keep me busy for a while . Good to see you posting.
Cheers,

My question now is this.....have we really advanced since the D100...it's the person behind the lens really.

Re: D100 Appreciation thread.

I learned on a D100...lol My pics look it to.. Oh well gotta start somewhere..

Yes indeed it is the photographer that makes the images. Good glass makes it alot better.
I have to admit , I really was overjoyed when the D200 came along.

Your images are teriffic.
I will try to dig up a few D100 files..

Take care and thank you for starting the thread...

.. everytime I go into the field prowling around for wildlife, I put a WA on my old D100 "just in case" .. there is something about the D100's colors ..

Amazing close-up's .. breathtaking - I couldn't tell from your EXIF what lens you used. I'd also really like to know your lighting arrangement .. ?

Thanks for any info; much appreciated - and thanks also for sharing .. !

ps .. I'm browsing your "Viewer's Favorites" on your website ... great images!!

Keep posting

Great work

A couple feel to me like they could use more contrast; but all of them have meticulous DOF, lighting, and composition -- overall, they are extraordinary photographs.

As to the D100, it appears to have some of the qualities I recall from my D70 cameras, I think the weak AA filter delivers about as much resolution as you can reasonably expect from the old 6 MP sensors. You certainly have created smooth and finely detailed photographs with it

Thank you Ronnie for sharing these and for offering a great tribute to both a great camera and to your great photography.

I never owned the D100, but I have some D70 photos I'm fond of here: http://imageevent.com/tonybeach/favorites/myfavorites

Take care and have a happy New Year.

Hi Ron,
I used a Nikon 300mm f/4d AF-S with extension tubes for all of these images.

My lighting set-up is very simple-only natural light. Never use flash, diffusers or reflectors.

I shoot mostly from first light to about an hour after sunrise. Cloudy days are also a good time to shoot.
I use a tripod, mirror lock-up and a remote shutter release for every shot.

I asked about your lighting because the EXIF said "strobe detected" or something. The colors are ... well, they leave me scratching my head ... all I can say is that nature is sure beautiful. Thanks for sharing your methods ... your images certainly put a new perspective on insects .. next spring I'll have to go 'bug hunting' - I have a whole new world to explore ..
