From the Author: Sample Nikon D800 Photos (Click on images to enlarge)
|The first thing I did when I got my D800 was head down to the University of Texas because I knew that I could get a good variety of shots to test out my new camera with. After a quick photo shoot with my friend Doa (you will see her in the book), I wandered around shooting various things, one of which was this church steeple. The D800's high resolution captures the textures with stunning detail. Shot using a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 for 1/160 @ f/11, ISO 200.|
|For this shot, I went the opposite direction, lo-fi. I know a lot of people think it's counter-intuitive to take a $3000 high-resolution camera and put a cheap lens like a Lensbaby on it, but I love the effect. So, for this shot I used my old Lensbaby 2.0 with a close up lens filter on it and snapped a shot of this Lantana flower in my backyard. Photography is very much about personal choices. It isn't wrong to use any type of accessory you want to achieve your own artistic vision. Shot using a Lensbaby 2.0 50mm for 1/1000 @ f/2, ISO 100|
|I snapped this shot of some candles to see how the D800's dynamic range compared to the D700, and as you can see it holds up pretty well. The D800 can capture shadow detail as well as keeping the highlights well exposed. I didn't use any Active D-Lighting or Noise Reduction on this shot. Shot with a Nikon 50mm f/1.4G for 1/125 at ISO 400.|
