Hello,

This series was shot using Nikon D800E, Nikon 35mm F1.4G lens and Nikon SB900/Pocket Wizard lights with Bowens light modifiers.

These lights have a very fast flash speed so they where perfect to freezes the action. It interesting to mention but the retoucher actually added motion blur go figure.

Cheers

Simon

Hello,

Some shots for Hyundai from a week of two back.

Nikon D800E with a Nikon 70-210mm VRII lens for the 3/4 shots and a Nikon 45mm PC-E lens for the side shot. Lighting as always Dedo

Great images as always Simon. I'm curious though, which of those highlights are from the Dedos ?

I have 6 of the small Dedos and one of the larger 400 series tungstens, have shot with them for years and know how precisely you can control them. But I'm looking at the highlights on the hood of the left shot, left end of the back door in the middle shot, and a few other places and seeing what looks like post work, either painting or masking.

Hi K.C.

Sorry but I am not sure by what you mean "which of those highlights are from the Dedos".

The shape and contours of the car are created by the Dedo's either by pointing the lights at the cyclorama and or directly at the car.

There is also a lot of retouching be applied to these shots as it is rare to get the perfect image straight from camera when it comes to cars.

Cheers

I was just suggesting that the retouching creates a different quality and it's fairly obvious to anyone who has shot images like this.

Great work, not a criticism, just an observation.

Hello,

Been busy lately with this high speed flash and loving it.

Nikon D800E, Nikon 70-200mm VRII lens and Nikon SB900/Pocket Wizard flash heads with Bowens light modifiers.

Added some good old grain for affect.

Cheers

Simon

Hi Ian,

If was a fun shoot.

The male model Cliff split his pants in half with all his jumps. One very fit dude.

The young woman Elizabeth Marvelly in the pink shot is also a opera singer as well as a aerobics instructor so all in all very talented.

In the last image the model appears to be levitating!:)

Hi Bob,

Thanks

The files I get from the D800E and D800 in my humble opinion have the same body density to them as I was getting from my Leaf Aptus 75.

My old Nikon D3x which I just sold last week was very good but the files always felt thin to me compared to the Leaf files.

But the files Im getting from the D800s are fantastic they are nice and fat with unbelievable dynamic range.

Please Lulu watchers dont turn my comments into another MFDB versus DSLR debate this is just my observations.

Cheers

Simon

Simon, thanks for sharing your experience with the Nikon vs. MDF. I sold my Hasselblad CF39MS/H2F combo a few months ago. I am hoping Sony introduces a 36MP camera before mid-2013. I'd jump on the Nikon bandwagon, but I'm heavily invested in Sony glass. The rumor mill is prognosticating that forthcoming Sony FFs will be equipped with EVFs. I don't mind that at all. The translucent mirror concept I could do without.

It's always nice to see what you are up to. You must be the busiest photographer in Auckland.

I had some fun with this one (and some laughs).  It is a 9x5 foot kitchen that I shot recently for the kitchen designer.  In case you are wondering about why one would design a kitchen so small or the functionality of the space, I put up a blog post here on the project, "The Smallest Kitchen Ever."

The first two images were shot using a tripod and some lighting.  I also gelled the windows for the first shot; shot from outside at night for the second.  The last two are handheld at a high ISO, which the designer requested.

Three from a recent architectural shot. Done with the D800 and 14-24mm (1 and 3) and 35mm Pentax645 (2). Will be posting as it gets retouched. Others were taken using the Pentax 645 lenses on the D800 which is giving me superb results. C1 7 + Nick Silver Efex Pro.

Here is one from ZD capture in 2009 (never yet published), to start the new "Eerie" series.

A well-named series, indeed, Michael.
But very classy "eerie" as we expect of you.
