Trying the "Nute" Way

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by MikeMcA², Aug 13, 2008.

  1. Just testing out my new SB-900 this morning, and tried the Nute method of f/1.4 85mm on the D3. Man, you guys are good. And I'm pretty happy with the SB900 so far.


    And one at a more mundane f/5.6

  2. #1 is why i AF on the tip of the nose and not the eyes when shooting long nosed dogs at 1.4
    i like #2
  3. i don't know, mike....
    that first picture doesn't LOOK LIKE NUTE, at all... :biggrin:

    "that first picture doesn't LOOK LIKE NUTE, at all"

    Well, I can se some similarities :biggrin:


    Back to the serious:

    Interesting - I think Randy.s advice is very good for dogs - but you are doing good, Mike.
  5. Yeah, I was just trying the razor-thin look. I don't wanna intrude on anyone's trademark (plus it's difficult lol)

    Doah! I forgot the sunglasses.
  6. LOL... absolutely
  7. i think the nose shows thin better
    but you risk someone saying the pic is oof:smile:

  8. Randy, that shot is OOF. :wink:

    Nice shots displayed here. How are you liking the new flash?
  9. Yeah, I remember those Randy. Cool snozz shots. :biggrin:

    I'm liking the flash. Love the new UI, but I don't really work with flash enough to say how one is better than the other. Usually just for fill, or for basic winners' circle pics.

    Flash pics of dogs

    That black/brown one is nice shot. Reminds me a little of my Lab/Pit Bull mix female that weighs 105 lbs. I have had more success shooting my pets since I got my SB-400 flash and can bounce it.
