Really like your shots Downfall,

the picture of the bike is very nice. The colours and the 3D is all there. Got to get that 5D soon...

85 1.8 wide open

No great art, just kid snaps, but I'm always impressed with the D700 + 85 1.8D ability to just perform in low or weird light...

(I always like the tungsten vs. evening effect, where the background looks deep blue right before all outside light fades. Mixed with some snowfall, it's a pretty effect IMO)

Because of this thread, I'm going to try and get myself a D700.

I've become obsessed with this thread. I've read every page in the past 2 days! Brilliant pictures everywhere!

It indeed is a thread full of great pictures and also influenced my decision to get a D700 last year too!

Hope to see some of your contributions whenever you get yours.

I enjoy this thread, too. But mainly because of the good pictures (thx to every contributer!) rather than fullframe. Most of the pictures I guess could be done in a comparable manner with APS-C....

Here are some from a snowshoe hike I did last weekend. All shots were taken with a Tamron zoom I paid $125 for @ Keh. I love the D700 in ways I could never express!

1st shot shows depth of snow: I am walking up near tree tops.

Summit approach


The close-focus is good on this Tammy zoom

Self-portrait, with snowshoe and its strapping as a tripod unit--forgot the pod.

Shot from summit while shattering my Power Bar (frozen Solid) with teeth.

JT, you can't just post these great shots and not tell us more. Good Lord man! where were you and do you do this often? (I guess so looking at the gear). Wonderful images.

DWB. Cool wedding. I shoot 30+ a year but never like this. I love unique weddings that have a cultural flare and different that the traditional North American style.

Now speaking of weddings. Although bookings are solid, the "Weekend Warriors" and Uncle Bob's are causing price pressures that's making things tougher. So I've decided to get into Maternity and Baby photography. It's tougher in some ways and you should have some studio gear which many hobbyists don't own. It's challenging in that baby's are harder to 'control'. One thing I'm considering is adding a new strobe. I have 2 that recycle in less than a second but Alien Bees have near zero recycle times. This seems required with kids as they react so darn quickly and you can never get them to repeat things.

So here's a couple samples from my second ever maternity session. Funny thing is, I over prepared the gear (the shot was done at their home) and was nervous for the first time in a long time. I grabbed the D700 with 85mm f1.8 attached. I completely forgot to take the lens belt and showed up at the house with only that lens.

It forced me to shoot with the 85mm only and I use zooms much of the time. It was nice and really made me think more about composing. Comments welcome.
