Encurtando distâncias

Desde que entrei no mundo dos sensores FF senti falta de distâncias focais maiores, mas agora isso não será mais problema.

Sexta à noite o Rodrigo e eu fomos até Blumenau pegar a nikkor 70-200 f/2.8G VR com o fotógrafo e figuraça Eduardo Guilhon, de Floripa.

Devido às chuvas de sábado, pude testá-la somente no domingo. Como todos os domingos, este também estava se arrastando. Então pedi  auxílio à Tati, que pacientemente se dispôs a me ajudar a testar a objetiva. Abaixo algumas fotos que fizemos ontem à tarde.

Saturday is a great day to a fun photo shoot and the perfect day to test the Nikon D700 (Of course, someday is perfect to that!).

Setup above: 2 SB-800 + 1 580EXII (full power) shoot thru difuser umbrella high right her and sun behind left her.

Camera info: Nikon D700 | 24-70 (ƒ/2.8G) | ƒ/16.0 | ISO 200 | 1/250s — Handheld

Rodrigo’s girlfriend, Alexandra Pacher, was our model. We went to an old train station and could take some interesting shots. A lot of photographers from Rio do Sul and region use to take shots in that station. Therefore, we had the obligation of to take some unconventional photos. And we got it, I guess.

Making of

What about D700? It’s a amazing camera. Just one (or two) thing I disliked: the AF points are concentrated in the center of view, as ever all FF DSLR, and there aren’t cross points in the frame’s borders, like 1Ds Mk III.

Leave me by myself


Today was a boring like day. Every sunday is a boring day for me.

And today, as ever, I didn’t do anything interesting and the day was finishing in a couple of hours. At 8 pm, I thought: “Why not now”. And I finally decided to make a self-portrait. Yes, that’s me.

Setup: SB-800 inside 40×60 softbox (f/8) at left of camera and SB-800 with semi-collapsed silver umbrella at right of camera and a little bit behind me (f/8).

Just a play shot

I took this shot during a tour, yesterday.  I was looking for a high key shot and I got it. But, I missed the composition. :/
And if you to ask me “why Did you do that?”, I’d answer: “I don’t know, maybe I’m losing my mind…” or “I should pay more attention to what I’m doing”.
I guess that I was wondering about light ratios and flash power and I didn’t pay attention to framing…I could figure it out, but it’s just a play shot and it isn’t all bad.

Setup: Sun at left and SB-800 (+1 EV) in silver umbrella at right. Triggered by built-in flash (-1 EV) in CLS mode.

Camera info: Nikon D300 | 85mm (ƒ/1.8D) | ƒ/5.6 | ISO 200 | 1/320 s — Handheld
