The D3x and people

This movie requires Flash Player 9

This will be the last in my Zoomify series on the D3x. I’ve done birds, 12bit, D3/D3x comparison, even ISO and now we have people. Folks are probably one of the best uses for the D3x, we all have mental references in which to look at the images, makes judgments and decide for yourself.

Both of these images were taken with the 200f2VR handheld. Both images were taken at f/8. The focus point on the tattoo back was the necklace tie. On the focus point on the gal was of course the eyes. The top photo lit by the sun, the bottom photo lit with a single flash shooting through a Lastolite trigrip.

After shooting for a month with the D3x, I have no doubt that it’s worth the price for my photography. This might not be the case for yours so think about it carefully. I’ve learned a lot about the camera and more about the direction I want to take my photography now. These are all good things, they help you avoid the Darwin Theory of Photography, “Evolve or Perish.”
