Anne @ 450mm

Discussion in 'People' started by Frits, May 1, 2007.

  1. Well, 420mm actually :smile: .
    Hardly your typical portrait lens, but great for snooping a snapshot from a good distance.

    D2x, Nikkor Ai-S 300mm f/2.8 (wide open, available light) + TC-14E

    You said it was a great portrait lens. Now your proving it.
  3. Thanks Rex! It was your thread of earlier today that prompted me to set up my rig at dinnertime and snap a few.
  4. LOL, I only just noticed that I shot this at 1/5 sec! I knew that there was very little available light, but this is insane :biggrin:

    You've got a lot steadier hand than I do, my friend.

    Manual focus AND hand held at 420mm!

    Yikes. I break out the tripod for the 180mm prime.

    I bow to your superior skills.

    Nice image too!

    I think Anne and ANY lens equals great photo. Nice work!
  8. WOW!!!!

    Yeah, Frits, you've got a real advantage here: a steady hand AND a beautiful subject with wonderful bone structure! :smile: Super portrait here!
  9. Excellent, I don't know how you do it, very steady hands and great subject! :smile:

  11. All:
    - Crazy slow speed: yes
    - Steady hands: maybe, but this is shot on a tripod...

  16. Thanks Daniel.
    Yes, she saw me fooling around with the rig - but she did not pose in any way for this.
