Model Arwen, MUA: Lori Verberckt
We set off in the studio with something i wanted to do for a long time, use the big silver parabolic umbrella as a backdrop and i have to say I'm pretty pleased with the results.
U used my 120cm gridded Octa for the frontal light but I'm thinking about replacing this with the ringflash for a future shoot.
It's a long time ago since i've done a photoshoot outside at night but i wanted to give it another try, I had pretty results using the Westcott apollo in the previous shoot so this is the modifier i chose again.
In the previous shoot i used the 70-200 f2.8, this time i chose the 85mm fixed focal and thought about shooting at f2.0 and this was not a good idea... I had serious problems getting the focus at the right place, i'm not sure what went wrong but i had more out of focus shots than good ones...
Having only used this 85 f1.4 G in low-light or normally bright conditions it never let me down, every picture tack sharp at the right place, I do not understand why suddenly this focussing problem arrised. looking on my LCD sreen during the shoot the focus plane was mostly about 10cm behind the models head, so i went into the AF compensation menu of my D700 to change the value to minus 15 as a test but with no positive result.
I'll deliver my D700 / lens to the Nikon repair service to check what's wrong with it
Same as previous but in color "hard to choose it is"
