Rae + Joe // West Wind Stables

A few teasers from a stylized shoot we shot just before a rain storm came through. We got rained out and didn't get to pull off the shoot we had planned for, but we got to get a few shots off before wrapping it up. All these images were shot with the Leica M9 and 50mm Noctilux F/0.95 that I have only been shooting for a couple days and still getting used to manually focusing and trying to nail a razor thin focus plane. Will post more from this shoot later once my power comes back on from the recent storms here in South Jersey.  Sandi and I have been without power now for 3 days and still no word on it coming back soon. Uploaded and edited these images on my Macbook Pro at a Starbucks. As always, our creative team kicked ass for this shoot, even though we got rained out, we got some good shots for everyone involved.

The Nikon Df - My Thoughts & Quick Review

The Nikon Df - My Thoughts & Quick Review

The Nikon Df is a very unique camera. With it's vintage look and highly praised sensor, it had a lot of photographers drooling over it before it even hit the shelves. It also had it's critics ripping it apart. Call it a hippy camera if you want, but while this camera may not be for everyone, it works for me. It can't be fairly compared to the D800, it's not meant to be a D800. It also can't be fairly compared to the D4, it's not meant to be a D4. The Df is a unique camera and one that we haven't seen up until now, but there is a lot more to it than just it's pretty retro exterior.
