Ian - Those are delicious delicious black and white portraits. Simply brilliant. I don't have the confidence to shoot seriously with film yet and I admire you all the more for that.

Philippe - That's a beautiful conversion, the textures pop out. Why is there the word 'payant' on the cobblestones?

Alan - Great family portraits. The golden light in the background is perfect, you tamed the flash well, looks very natural.

Curtis - Amazing series, you managed to capture that moment of magic when a child tears towards the surf. And the one where the girl's avoiding the lapping waves. Coulda been me when I was a kid! Ah well I still do that today too

John - Love the simplicity of that shot. Was the cat paw moving?

Edward - I imagine riding in the cab would have been a wonderful experience. The one with the locomotive is very nice.

Oh and Ben, the wife isn't so keen on the puppy looking straight at the flash and will try to keep that to a minimum if she can. So she had one hand over the dog's eyes, the other to calm and hold her down. But the puppy's naturally curious, insatiably so. Oh well, I'm thinking of posing her opening the door of the fridge next, probably easier with all the food within...

Alan, this is a very very good photo. The lighting you chose works perfectly. Now you know why I like that zoom so much!

Chin - lol - that's different. I had visions of the two of you holding her down to take pics of the underside of her paws.

I think we are the resident Series E 50mm shooters here... These shots... My God in Heaven! My jaw drops every time I see them. I so want to know what you did in post on these. Would love to see the original scans to compare with the final rendering. If you wish to take this to PM, I want to pick your brain... From what it looks like though, many are interested in your process.


Kevin I fear I'm going to disappoint here but I did nothing in post except a 2% higher contrast. I metered the light with a handheld for her face, shot, scanned, removed the odd spot and made the tiniest contrast adjustment. I think the light was just right and that's all there is to it. And I told her the mood I wanted rather than the look.

When I teach this stuff to my beginners I always tell them: cut out the top light, have the largest possible lateral light and have the subject face the light. That's all I did here.

Another excellent shot. I think you need to tell us a bit more about yourself Ian. Most of us at one time or another have introduced ourselves more fully. As a matter of fact, I believe Monty has collected those comments, though I'm not exactly sure how to access them. The fact that you're using a model for some of your shooting suggests you have a bit more than the casual amateurs' approach to photography.


Oh dear. Where to start?

I live in a little village in the hills east of Manchester and run the village shop, Post Office and a children's nursery, among other things. The jobs allow me to be here when my girls go to school and be here when they come home. I do a little photography for cash but not at commercial rates - I'd rather shoot a lot because I love it and I don't want it to become another job. I also teach a little photography locally but never for money. I'd hate it to become something I felt I had to do.

As for models etc, long ago I realised that any of our modern cameras are amazing so rather than buy new kit I sometimes prefer to put the money in front of the lens to get the kind of photo I want. This could be a model, a trip to an interesting place or whatever. Any camera since the D50 can shoot incredibly well. And yes, I'm a hypocrite and have a D700 but I'm in no rush to upgrade.

Started proper photography during a trip to Africa in 1990. For a while my job took me to unusual places so I ended up with unusual pictures but I wasn't a journalist.

Anyway, then I got married and couldn't travel for a while so I joined the Prison Service and got out of the habit of carrying a camera. But in the 9 years since we've moved to the village I've picked it up again Generally I photograph people but it depends ...

To be honest I'm a bit bored of shooting pretty girls (really!) and would like to do publicity shots for Help the Aged or someone. Trying to move in that direction but we will see.

Right, I'm quite sure I'm over my allocated time for boring everyone so we'll move on

Thanks! I was trying to take a flash picture but it looked horrible but she looked so lovely in the viewfinder so I just bumped the iso up and used the window light.

Ed, congrats to your new lens! I'm not exactly surprised that the legendary 105/2.5 works so well on the D200 in your hands ;-)

Alan, wow, beautiful work in the field (pun intended). I like both shots equally - the golden light is fantastic on the first one, while as a family picture the second image works better for me.

John, love your pictorial reply to Chin's stellar paw-shot!

Jose, as stated before - keep your amazing bird-portraits coming!

Ian - so glad to have you on the thread. Great 'intro' post and the images you shared here are all fascinating. I'm impressed by all of you photographers who have been shooting 10+ years and have an archive to pull from, and with your wide ranging travels I'm looking forward to seeing many more interesting shots!

Oh and the one with the girl in the car window... very elegant. Great lighting!

What a gorgeous photo Alan and what a beautiful family. You caught the perfect light for this shot. The second photo missed the light but it certainly is wonderful to see the three of your together. Your boy is a natural, but then that likely comes from the fact daddy is pointing a lens in his face so often... He's a beautiful boy, who is clearly getting great parenting. You guys are naturals!


Beautiful portrait Alan

Recently I acquired a very nice 105 2.5 AIs lens from Chuong. I had a learning experience with pay pal and he was very patient with me. Some nice folks on this
thread.
The sky was blue and clear today, after many days of dreary weather. So we, the D200, the 105 and I went for a walk.

Nice shots ED sharp, detailed and very colorful. The lens suits you

It's fantastic. I have the same camera and lens, gift from my aunt. Nothing I have ever taken with it is even close to what you are getting with it. Bravo.

Here are a couple images from our day trip to Charleston, SC. We had a great time walking around the old part of the city and I couldn't resist a little street photography.
