Hey guys,

As you can read above I'm having my first photo session when I'm using my new Nikon DSLR. So far I was using 35mm and I feel really comfortable with that but it is time to try something else.
Anyway.
I decided to ask for your opinions since most of you has been doing that for a while I guess. I'm shooting pregnant woman for black/white and sephia photographs which I will make later on in PS. I'm going to use as always a diffuser and maybe small bounce. The session is on the beach and the woman is going to wear two outfits; one is white and the other black. I know how to set up white balance with Nikon using PRE settings unless there is any tricky thing.

Should I go with shooting like I always did using 35mm? Are there any tricks I shoot be aware of? Please write any suggestion you have! Thanks a lot!

Hmmm,

One advantage of a DSLR is you can review the image on the LCD screen.

That will tell you if your exposure is in the ballpark.

I always try to use the lowest ISO I can get away with, which is something you can't easily adjust on the fly with film.

Digital tends to overexpose a little, blowing out the highlights. With digital, you can takes lots of shots so feel free to use bracketing, or try a few different exposure combinationsor exposure compensation.

Don't expect fantastic results on your first time out. Maybe practice a little first with a low pressure situation.

These days, my photos are far exceeding anything I could do with film, other thanthe resolution of film.

Where did you get the last two frames? They look like polaroid transfers.
