Bob, Olga and Anastasia was here!

Above Picture taken by Anastasia Vasilkova


Tuesday evening Bob van Ooik, Olga and Anastasia Vasilkova showed up – on Linns birthday. They stayed a couple of days and we had no real plans more than having a great time. They followed me to my photography classes for young people, and my new film making class. And not only that, we also took a cover photo for a music album – a local rapper that I’ve shot in the past – and we painted with light – you know long exposure and then try to make things look nice running around with the light when it’s dark outside. Really cool. :D But I can’t really show that just yet.

This shot is taken with Sigma DP1 and by Linn. The rest above is taken with the Nikon D700.

We also went to the ocean where we played with my Elinchrom Quadra. Bob brought his D700 (perhaps it belongs to both?) and I enjoyed playing with it a lot. It’s fun with full 35mm and the possibility to shoot when it’s really really bad light. Oh, and it’s so fast too! :D

Above shots are taken at one of my classes, all taken with the D700 – at ISO ranging around 4000-6400. Pretty amazing really. They would probably look better too if I was used to dealing with Nikon raw and if I used other software then Lightroom. :)

    Hei Hei Carl Rytterfalk (kronprinsen Foveon), shame I didn’t have the time to go out shooting with you. I love the third picture – not only is it a great picture for all the usual reasons, but it also shows great joie de vivre. That’s why is about more than just photography. Best wishes to you and Linn from England, Paul Boothroyd.

    P.S. This is what we look like when we go out in England ;-)

  3. Hi Paul, yeah, it’s a shame really! :D And in your shot it looks cold and someone is having shorts! woaaaaa! Great sky though! :)

    Love the photos! What brand and size umbrellas are you using? They look smaller than stand mounted umbrellas.

  5. Myga says:

    What lens did You used on the two last photos? Bokeh looks nice, is that Sigma 50/1.4 ?

  6. I pass that question over to Bob or Olga – it’s a Nikon lens. Might be the 50 1.4. Not sure. Bob?

  7. Bob van Ooik says:

    Not right indeed :) It is the Nikon 85mm f1.8, pretty nice lens for the money. Btw, same FOV as 50mm on the SD14.

  8. Myga says:

    Wow, nice bokeh and sharpness. I had no idea that 85/1.8 is able to take that kind of images. Look’s like it will be my next lens :) THANKS!

  9. Myga says:

    Sorry for the double post but how fast and accurate is AF of this lens on D700?

  10. Bob van Ooik says:

    Fast enough ;) And accuracy is very good, almost always use it in AF mode and hits it perfectly imho.
