    if u find yourself auditioning for a shoot, make sure you employ your "PAY" lens. whatever lens that may be. for me, it's the 85 1.4:cool:

    You have to move up to the 200 f2 to do any better.
  4. Hey Mark... Whats going on here...
    In the 2nd shot her nose and eyes are still in focus.. You used f/1.8...
    Don't tell you finally found that the 85 f/1.4 has more settings other than f/1.4
    or you removed the glue on that aperture setting... ROTFL....
    BTW... nice shots mate...

    But for me, I love the 28-70f/2.8 or if I have the distance, can't beat my 80-200 f/2.8...

    thanks Kap:smile:
  8. It's my *money* lens too. :)  I've used it at every paid session since owning it. These are some of my favs.


  9. Hi Sonya,

    I really like these 2 shots. Very nice captures and I like the composition and black and white conversion on the second.
  10. Dunno bout $shot$ but guess is lol.
    I succombed and started doing the W word (yep weddings eek!). Well, actually am building port to launch website dedicated to this and then full steam ahead, full-time.
    Anyway, processing is giving me the biggest headache as am not sure what way to go as yet, too many possibilities.

    Anyway, these are recent Bridal all at 85 f/1.4
    This lens does NOT leave my D3 and is used at least 80% of the time. Portrait, action, low light, you name it and it nails it! ADORE this lens!!!!



  11. Definitely a great portrait lens. Here is a candid shot of my better half:

    D2x, AF Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 (available light)

  12. Hi Frits,

    I really enjoy your work. Beautiful capture of a beautiful lady. :smile:
  13. I didn't get paid enough for these shots, but that lens really came through!:smile:



  14. Thank you! I have a ton from that session, and used the 85 the entire time. here The conversion is a blue/yellow duotone I made in photoshop. It's one of my favorites to use on teen/young adult photos.

    LOL she's given me $$ before....does that count?? :tongue:
  18. If I do have any paid sessions than its another 85mm lens that makes the money, at least more than the 85/1.4.

    85/2.8 PC


    For my best paid job (musical) I used a variety of lenses this year: 20/3.5 AIS, 28/1.4, AFS 24-70/2.8, AFS 28-70/2.8, 85/1.4, 70-200VR (with and without TC14E), AFS 300/2.8.
    However, the most used lens was by far the 70-200VR, there's hardly a more versatile lens for me.

    Here's a 70-200 shot from the musical (that scene was a real show stopper) in combo with the TC14E-II, at ISO 6400.
