Julian

My nephew Julian is two years old now! I took some photos of him over the weekend at one of the parks I used to frequent when I was his age. Such a happy little booger, this one. Nikon D800 + Nikkor AF-S 58mm f/1.4G

Small Flash and The D800

Nikon D800 + Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII | 200mm, 1/250 sec, f/4, ISO 100 | 9 image stitch When Bridget and I work together on a shoot, we try to goof off as much as possible. Ok, I’m kidding, but there are times when I do point the camera in her direction during a gig, […]

Super Moon

Nikon D800 + Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII | 1/2 sec, f/2.8, ISO 100 The moon passed awfully close to the Earth over the weekend, and we found ourselves over 200 miles north of home on a gig the night we saw it rise over the horizon, bigger and brighter than I’ve ever seen it before. […]

Nikon D800 +  Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | 1/100 sec, f/2.8, ISO 100 (VSCO’s Kodak Tri-X 400) The weekend was a little busier than I anticipated, but I still managed to squeeze in some time behind the D800’s finder. I also added Lightroom 4 and the newest, D800-compatible version of VSCO to my software tool-kit. I […]

Nikon D800 +  Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | 1/250 sec, f/2.8, ISO 100 It’s impossible to appreciate fully by simply viewing the downsized images I’m posting here, but from what I’ve seen so far on my monitor at home, files from the Nikon D800 look downright stunning.  It seems that the big headline feature of the camera […]
