D2x reportage shooting

Discussion in 'People' started by vieri, Jun 10, 2007.

  1. I recently did a shooting for a reportage with writer Hugh Pope; besides my trusty D2xs, I had my M8 with me as well; I did most of the job with the Nikon, which I am still slightly more comfortable with: however, I got a few M8 shots as well, out of which a couple have been chosen by the editor together with a few more of the Nikon shots... here they are:

    - the D2xs shots:

    ...and a couple of shots with the M8, for good measure:

    After a few years of D2x & D2xs shootings, I really enjoyed using the M8 on the job as well, and I decided I will keep bringing both around for a while - then, for these kind of jobs, I might just leave the D2xs home...! :wink: This will make it more difficult to post the results here, though, so I might just lug the D2x + 85mm f1.4 for that :biggrin: seriously, the D2xs file quality and my being comfortable with it are what makes the difference for me. C&C welcome, as always.

  3. Very nice work.
     
  4. Very nice series. I really like the intensity of image #2 and of course the nice B&W rendition of the M8.

    Good looking series Vieri.

    Were the B&W shots straight from the M8 or was further processing necessary?

    Regards,

    Excellent shots Vieri! Sorry for a stupid question, what is M8?
     
  8. Hey Gale, thank you very much for your comment! :smile: I am glad you enjoyed the series... :biggrin:

    Thank you Melissa! :biggrin:

    Thank you very much Gordon, the M8 surely does a great job in color but its BW works very well for me :smile:

    Hey Tom, first of all thank you very much for your comment, I am glad you enjoyed :smile: About the BW, I do shoot in RAW and convert them in PSCS2 as I normally do with my D2x shots; I never use out-of-camera jpgs, neither with my Nikon bodies nor with the M8... I just like to be in control, I guess! :biggrin:

    JD, thank you very much! :biggrin: Your comments are really appreciated, as always - thanks again!

    Thank you Igor! Glad you liked them - the M8 is the Leica M8, a digital rangefinder camera I just recently got and I am using for all my street work (and now, for reportages as well!); it has a Leica M mount which allows one to use Leica, Zeiss and third party glass: all the glass for RF cameras are really great, and generally considered to be better than SLR glass (but, I don't want to start a religious war here...). Hope this helps! You can find lot more info on the M8 by googling it... :wink:
     
  9. Hey Vieri. a cool series my friend!

    Number #4 and #5 in particular stand out for me!

    You're good.............. very good!

  10. Hey Graeme, thank you very much my friend! :biggrin: just a small job I did recently for a fashion magazine here in Istanbul - I am glad you enjoyed the pics and :redface::redface: as always, you are flattering me... :redface::redface: hope all is well in your side of the world! :biggrin:
     
  11. Good job. I like the way that you can feel the intensity/emotion of the person being interviewed in the images.

    These are excellent. I really like the emotion that they convey, esp in the 3rd B&W.

    Loving these! Nothing that hasn't already been said, but yes, an awesome story and you really get a sense of the man, in just a few shots no less!

    Sigh. I love photojournalism :)

    as all of your work, these are just wonderful...excellent setting too ....;-))
     
  18. Thank you very much Nute, and sorry for the delayed response - I missed this thread for a while, for some reason :wink: The setting is actually a very nice cafe' in what they call a "passage" (narrow alley, either vaulted or not) here in Istanbul; this particular passage has a few very very nice cafes and when the editor proposed this location I immediately accepted :biggrin: thanks again!
