Hi All,

If interested, I want to share my first fashion editorial using my new Nikon D800 for the November Issue of Harper's BAZAAR. For most of the 10 page editorial I used the Nikkor 85mm f1.8G lens as well as the Nikkor 50mm f1.8G for another one.

In all cases, all of the images were shot wide open at f1.8.

Link to the video and all of the images here:

Thanks
Ben

As far as I know this is not Ben's first editorial it's just first with Nikon D800 after switching from PENTAX :-)

Very good work, of course. As a pro we see that each time you post. (So it's not the new camera eh? )

I noticed how you make the clothing stand out in each shot. We often see posts on FM self describing as a fashion set, but often the model is the obvious subject, stealing viewer's interest from the fashions. I think this set shows how to make the fashion the main thing while still showing the model as an attractive part of the pictures.

Very good observation indeed! It is Fashion and thus that is where the focus should be with a convincing performance by the model of course. ;-)

Although I wonder how they are able to sell fashion with a malnourished, extremely grumpy looking model. Does she ever smile?

Flawless images, excellent eye for the scene! A few questions to satisfy my curiosity:

1. How much input did you have in the concept of this photo shoot?

2. Do results like this, acheived with gear within the financial reach of most working photographers, reaffirm your decision not to go with a Pentax 645D or other Medium format system?

1. I had complete liberty to do as I wished on this shoot, based on our original concept
2. I much prefer the Nikon D800 to the Pentax 645D. Better dynamic range and high iso capabilities.
