  • love the abandon house shot the No Outlet sign makes it even more compelling
  • nice, works for me.
  • Technically its an antique dress form torso with a just a mannequin head stuck on top does knowing that disturb you more or less? Thanks for letting me know you like it.
  • Created discussion thread felt like sharing
    Was testing to see if I would trust my Phottix mono light’s High-Speed Sync in TTL for some dark daylight(overpowering the sun with strobe as key)shots I have coming up, decided it was still too ...
  • Created discussion thread hand shot
    Just felt like posting this old hand shot, an ink stained hand from a printer in china.  Shot with a D700 and Voigtländer 20mm f/3.5 SL-II processed in  ACR and Silver Efex Pro 2
  • Because the glass of the lens is a large convex reflective surface I’d suggest starting with a large diffusion flat AKA scrim. White fabric, frosted plastic like plexiglas, paper sheets even a ...
  • Another thumbs up for this lens it's the first consumer zoom(not counting the occasional kit lens) I have purchased since the E-series 70 -150mm. Most of them have seemed a little week at the long ...
  • “Nikkor 50mm f1.8 bokah looks funny... or is it just me?” If by funny you mean not all that pleasing it's probably not just you I find it a bit busy and distracting too but if by funny you mean is ...
  • Replied in 180mm f2.8
    Yes you are🦜! the detail on those feathers is awesome. A 500mm f/4 might be a bit big for the OPs needs but I’m inspired to rent one some day.
  • Replied in 180mm f2.8
    Thanks Tord Gearsau, yes I would agree but the 70-300 will give nice isolation when when you are zoom out to 300 and keep the aperture mostly open. ok now I'm just showing pretty pictures... its ...
  • Replied in 180mm f2.8
    Having the 180mm AF f/2.8, 70-200mm AFS f/2.8E and the 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 AF-P VR in my arsenal I feel like posting again. For me the 70-200 performs the best but it’s makes a big heavy travel lens ...
  • Replied in 180mm f2.8
    I have the 180mm f/2.8 AF(love it) plus a 70-200mm 2.8 VR for non photo specific travel I would take the 180 because of its size to quality ratio. For my last trip I picked up a Nikon 70-300mm ...
  • Replied in Example
    Something like this but on a larger scale
  • If I were trying to re-create this I might start with a small specular source like bare bulb or small reflector reflected from mirror or diffracted through some glass. However they did it its a ...
  • Product photography is more about lighting, arranging, perspective(distance from subject) and background. The Nikkor 55mm f3.5, Nikkor 60mm f2.8D, 50mm F1.8D will give you very similar results and ...
  • Replied in Bufflehead?

  • Horshack I feel your use on the word “most” just needed to be the word "many" and this post would have flown unchallenged. Lots of my strobes do have slower durations at lower power settings I was ...
  • Thanks for the additional information on the Profotos (love those lights) ... 1) using only one light at full power>>>yup I do this some times 2) the single strobe has a somewhat slow t.1>>> only ...
  • From my testing Electronic Front Curtain Shutter seems to help diminish a lot of this even with my oldest longest duration strobes that hadn’t been plugged if for years. Jim was EFCS disabled in ...
  • Adding more data to my own post(not sure if anyone else cares) This set was shot with the worst-case scenario setting. Z6 mechanical shutter 1/200 or 1/250 with a PocketWizard Plus X FTZ 105 F/2.5 ...
