Photographers Portraits #1 : Atunbi

I played around with Atunbi's 1Ds MkIII to get this one and the next shot. I am totally impressed with the quality of image that the camera produced. This shot was taken in almost complete dark conditions, the only source of light in the room was the Flat panel screen, camera left.

This is another portrait that I'm very happy with. As I said I have another one shot under the same conditions of Abi

wow! the only source of light was an LCD screen? Hey, get yourself a 1Ds MkIII, Jide!

Nice portrait btw. excellent DOF.
Jide Alakija: No I don't need a MkIII, I can produce the same results with my 5D, I just liked the ease at processing this shot, all I had to do was work in RAW + slight curve adjustment for contrast on the shirt area.

Wow to this one and all the other "people" on your blog.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Anita, there are a lot more people I'd like to put up in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!!!

if canon could step down their prices a bit, they'd really shut nikon up

it's good to see the progress shutterchancers are making with cameras

oh banging shot btw
Jide Alakija: I think Nikon users, use Nikon because of loyalty, I don't think you can lure them to Canon but much the same can be said about Canon users too.

Nice shot Mr Alakija so are you upgrading to the 1Ds MkIII? Not sure why, but you don't seem to do a lot of portraits.

Nikon rocks! Sadly I don't think there's anything to match Canon's 85mm f/1.2
Jide Alakija: No need to upgrade, I'm happy with my 5D at the moment. What do you mean when you say I don't seem to do many portraits? That statement is really confusing me, it's rather relative isn't it?

Enjoy your Nikon!
Nice one Jide. Atunbi must surely like this. I'm sure the 1Ds Mk III is an exceptional camera, as it should be. A camera is only as good as what it helps you achieve and I would go with whatever works best for me.

I came very close to getting a Sigma SD14 and may yet tread the Sigma path in the future because of the Foveon X3 sensor. However developing my skills is more important right now.

Now back to singing the Nikonian anthem "We shall overcome" smile Cheers!
