Default The 35-100F2 as the only studio lens

Hi Guys and gals!

Yesterday I was back in studio for the first time in nearly 5-6 months shooting a Military_vogue style project that I'd been planning to do for a while. I can't post any pics from the shoot yet as I've only just emailed every one involved with the contact sheets and random sample images (600 in all) but will do so once I've been told which pics the models/mua etc want retouching.

Thoughts from the days shoot were:

* The 35-100F2 is just totally superb. It seems to add something to the images that even now after 2 years of owning the lens that kind of take my breath away regards the imgaes detail, contrast and over all look and feel.

* I'd always been hesitant to use the 35-100 on its own - switching to the 14-54 as and when required but yesterday I decided to see whether its possible within a to stick to a single lens. I have to say its pretty darn close to being perfect. I just wish it could focus that wee bit closer.

* The E3's slightly bigger size makes it a better match in terms of handling and balance with the F2, say when compared to the E1. As much as I love the E1's ergonomics, the lens feels just that much more comfortable on the E3. In total yesterdays actually shooting time was 6 hours nearly non stop.

Overall, yesterdays shoot was possibly the best one to date and looking at the pics I would have liked to have had an E-5 to use and compare with the E3. As soon as I get the ok from the girls and I've retouched some pics I'll be sharing them with you all.

Cheers

Harj

Hi Harj,

Glad you're back in the studio again. It's been too long a time since you've posted any model shots.

I'll be patiently waiting here to see your images.


Zig

Here's a wee preview :

http://harjtt.smugmug.com/Portfolio/...3_dR3Rc/Medium

Its a just a quick video i knocked up ...just a few random pics from the shoot ... a wee bit like a trailer. It doesnt autoplay so you'll need to just press the start button for it to kick in.

I also did all of the styling, which was pretty cool and getting some of the bits made me feel like a kid again!

Cheers

Harj

I've just looked at the first dozen or so Harj, I'll look at them all later over a 'pina Colada'
What I see is just outstanding though. You make those shots look so easy, I know better. Crisp and clean, great subject matter.
Later
Ken

I really enjoyed those, Harj. Question: when they're off camera, do they ever smile? They look pretty fierce on the runway.
