Here’s Rainbow, the #bichonfrise – who brought her family to our Dundonald studio for their special Photoshoot. She’s our ‘DoggyStar’ of the day!
What a great day in the studio! My first shoot for the brand-new Pet Portraits Awards, a lovely Mummy and Me Shoot, then a wee family. Today I was shooting with the Nikon Df Camera tethered to an Apple MacBook Air, using my new Smart Shooter 3 app. It’s much easier to use than Nikon’s own transfer programmes, and cuts out one step in the workflow, for the images are already on the computer for processing, so no download after the clients have left.
Here’s my image of the day, Katie and hannah on the swing/dreamcatcher…
Baby Bailey, in the studio today for his Baby of the Month photo shoot. This image captured on traditional film, using the Nikon F100, f/5.6 @ 1/125th sec, on Ilford professional film, ISO100. Developed in Fotospeed FD10 for 7 mins.
Film rules OK!
Back to the Future…
Today I rescued my old Nikon FM2 camera from the shelf in the studio where it has sat, forlorn and neglected for about 5 years. It’s a fully manual film camera, no autofocus, no automatic exposure no ‘modes’ and certainly no WiFi or video capabilities.
It had been neglected only because the little strip of metal that maintains contact with the battery was broken and according to our local camera shop, it’s not worth repairing.
