D850 Ship Day!

Ya, this is simply a gorgeous camera! I am really enjoying shooting with it and the images it’s producing. It’s not your father’s D800! Later today a special Podcast will be posted that will cover much more than I can here in writing. I can honestly say that this is the first megapixel camera I really like to shoot! Here’s some more trivia that might help you get started with your new D850. mtc D850 Instruction Manual PDF D850...

What Do YOU Want to Say?

When we work with inanimate objects, rocks, buildings, planes, the life they take on in our photograph comes from us. We can opt for the simple, “it was here, I saw, you see” photograph. From those words, is that what you want to say in your photograph? Or you can strive for the “oh man was it here, I took it in and now YOU see” kind of photograph?

The Megapixel Demand

Cliff mentioned something today that I had forgotten but are sound words of advice. It’s the mega pixel demand. The D850s 45.7 megapixels capture a lot … I mean … a lot of information! I’m talking so much succulent, delicious, spectacular detail that if you’re off on your craft even a slight twinge of a heartbeat, you’ll see it in your file. What I’m talking about is sharpness, sharpness coming capturing a sharp image! That means lens, focusing that lens and giving that D850 the support to produce a sharp image! To illustrate my point I enlisted the ever cooperative Sadie (who will do anything for a treat). Shooting with the 24f1.4 at f1.4 just inches away, I focused on the left eye (our left, not Sadie’s). You can see how the right eye is really soft and that illustrates my point. While it would seem that they’re being that close physically, both eyes should be sharp, they are not. Same with those mega pixels, off just a hair...
