#259225 Studio Portrait

Well, I'm going to be a little different. The watch and the ring, those are a part of a person. If they wear these things all the time, I believe they should be part of a portrait. However, I would reduce the exposure on them in post, so they can be part of shadow details. I would, at first just darken the two bright spots on the watch, to match the shadow values of the rest of the watch. If it looks good, then that's all that is needed.


Also along these lines, the shadow of her watch elbow is really dark. I would work on it so I could get a good fading from foreground to background.  


The ring has its own issue in that the gems are very bright, if not blown out. Being a D810, I would think you can pull that down a bit. I would try to reduce the ring, and then reduce the hands with the ring. It all depends.


Depending on space, these could be dealt with is a larger (50-70 inch softbox/dish or diffused umbrella) that is forward if the subject and only allowed to have feathered light fall on subject. Being large and not directly facing the subject should also handle the jewelry issues.


Lets see, their is 1,000 way to skin a cat. The most important thing is, Mark's instructor liked it and I see Mark growing with each new image that he presents. Well done Mark.

#259133 Interesting Mirrorless Article

Their will be. I agree with Art, the Piece was a whiny bit. Nikon ambassadors will have and show off what it can do. Technowhinners will abound. They knock the tech they cant use. The .95 DOF is going to be tuff to use without a tripod. No need to add AF. I think Nikon did the right thing. Give the Z to the folks that use it as a tool and are above the technowhinners. Look at all the conversations going around. All I hear from the pros is how cool the Z is. One slot didnt phase them. I like it, its a fun camera. Takes great shots. Their will be the consumer versions coming.
