those are some fantastic shots darren.
how much does that lens run?
cost wise ? not sure what the current price is, maybe $400?
In the U.S. it is $349.95 from B&H, with a $10 rebate. It's always been a very good value, so long as you get a good sample. Sharper wide-open at 70mm than a brand-new 35-70/2.8 I compared it to, with better bokeh and less CA to boot. Weaker build quality and focusing can be hit-or-miss depending on the sample.
oh, just so you know, these shots are full frame using D300 at F/2.8
What kind of PP did you do these shots? they Look great! I really like the sharpening on them.
Both were shot in RAW then opened in PS3, I then just used smart sharpen default setting
The action I use to do the framing also applies a little sharpening when resizing.
BUT, they were very sharp to start with.
What was used for the framing? it looks Great.
I just checked out you gallaries, your a very talented photographer, great stuff in there.
Its a PS action I bought ($10) called Absolute Sharpening Pro, just google it. It's very good imho, it frames, resizes and sharpens one at a time or in batch.
I'm sure you can achieve the same thing yourself, but, I for one are not that good in PS actions and $10 was a good investment of my time and money I think
Great images and also love the framing! Very happy young fellas!
These are great. What did you use for your lighting. Sure seems like a lens worth considering.
Thanks so much Terri. I was pleased how they turned out, these are pretty much straight out of the camera.
Simple lighting really, just a Sb-600 bounced off the left hand wall at a bit of an angle, I'm constantly amazed how TTL works so well
