I'm in love with FX

Discussion in 'People' started by Mitchell, Aug 1, 2009.

  1. My first FX shot taken today with a D700 and a lowly 50mm, f1.4. Samantha won a close game of "Pretty, pretty princess":tongue:

    Strange catchlights are courtesy of my front door.

    Great shot and a very beautiful Samantha! Congrats on the D700. I love mine! Mostly the ability of the great high ISOs and low light shots. Wish I had better glass but what I have is good.
     
  3. Be-you-tiful! :biggrin: I can't wait to see more from you and the D700......knew you'd love it! :biggrin: :biggrin: Congrats!!!!!!!

    Lovely portrait. :smile:

    How do you get such sharp eyes? Do you sharpen them after resizing, just the eyes?
     
  7. Hey Mitch..... Samantha is growing up so fast my friend! Does that mean we are getting old???? :biggrin:


    G :cool: 
     
  8. This shot had no sharpening. Just a crop and levels adjustment.

    Nice lighting + careful focusing = sharp eyes.
     
  9. We are old! Our kids are growing up so fast.:biggrin:

    I really wish my 50 1.4 was that sharp wide open. Anything from F/2 and above, it becomes 'milky'. Good thing my 85 1.4 is tack sharp at 1.4 though, makes up for the lack of sharpness from f/2 to 1.4 on the 50.

    Great shot BTW!

  15. Gorgeous image of your little princess Mitch!
    I'm with you on FX (D700 for me) - love it.
     
  16. Oh, what a gorgeous shot. I'm so jealous. I would love a D700, but it's not in the near future......
