May 2013 Be A Bokehlicious Year For You

I would like to thank everyone for visiting this blog in 2012 and look forward seeing you guys in 2013!
2012 was a very exciting year for photographers and video shooters and even if we don’t have the latest lens or camera body in our bag, we have very few excuses for not taking pictures or shooting video.

Let’s make 2013 into a visually inspiring year, let’s get back to real photography.

Of course I suffer as much from GAS as most normal photographers :) I finally broke down and purchased the DC Nikkor 135mm f2.0, I rented this lens for assignments and every time I used it I had a smile on my face.

    Thanks Derek, all the best to you too!. I have to admit I have no problems with high ISO up to about 8000. Try this, sharpening to low or off, when resampling, use bicubic smooth. I found this set up to produce the best results.

    amazing shots , beautiful and hope 2013 will be the best year for you, Mike.
    btw, I ‘ve got one big question for you:
    do you use your D800E in real bad light and what is your take on the D800E real life highISO performance in real bad light.
    to be honest , I am not happy with my D800E for 2 reasons:
    1 its huge file size.
    2 its noisy high ISO in real bad light(I thought resampling might work but not for me).
