This is my daughter. She needed a portrait for a senior project. The D2X on a etripod shows me there isn't a focus problem with mine. I used an expodisk for wb.. this required no color adjustment. Whad'ya think?
Hey Ed,ednaz said:oh yeah, your technique was good too... :wink: You have a lovely daughter, and you captured a really nice sense of humor and sweetness.
All you guys with your D2x are giving me HUGE heartache... I have been repeating my mantra "wait for the d200 equivalent" over and over, but the more of this stuff I see the more impatient I get.
Congratulations on your new Aussie, Ed. I love the blue merle, especially those eyes. It's always fun seeing your updates!ednaz said:Not to get too far off topic here, but we now have a second Aussie.
You're right, Chris, in that most focus problems involve longer lenses and moving subjects. I've also been reading about the challenges of such a densely packed sensor and the need for higher shutter speeds than we're used to using. I've gotten decent results shooting my yonger daughter's LcCrosse games, but I'm noticing incredible sharpness when using a tripod in a static situation.Chris101 said:Very nice shot Tom, one your lovely daughter will cherish for the rest of her life, I'm sure. I wish I had some nice photos of myself during my own teenage years.
Concerning the focus problem some have reported, doesn't that problem only affect focus on a moving target at long distances?
Thanks for such kind comments, Frank.UncleFrank said:What an appealing portrait, Tom! Forgetting the gear, the rapport between photographer and model has allowed her
to pose naturally, and let her character shine through the image. It's a beautifully composed and captured portrait.
That brings back some poignant memories. When we took our daughter to college, we settled her in her dorm, and then cried on the drive home .tweber said:I'm blessed with three lovely daughters. My middle daughter is the most laid back of the bunch. She heads off for college in the Fall and I'm sure going to miss her.
