Nikon Z7 at night

I'm continuing to work with the new Z7 under low light conditions and still very impressed with the IBIS system the camera has.

Working with Nikons' IBIS system and my new Z7 Nikon

While in New Orleans recently I was able to do some tests with my new Nikon Z7 and the new for Nikon In Body Image Stabilization system they have out in the new camera.

The system worked great, these image were shot at ISO 1600, at f4 and a 1/4" hand held without any camera support or tripod!

I don't often approve of the phrase "game changing" but it really is apt in this case, this new system will really change the way I photograph Mardi Gras at night, the combination of the ISO ability and the IBIS will pretty much mean I will not longer be tethered to a flash system.

I was lucky enough to have Susan visit the Tyson studio and sit for me again this year for what turned out to be the last nude photo shoot of the Tyson studio season. It's now just too cold out there to even do a clothed shoot and its too expensive ($800 a month) to heat the place. Still a great shoot where I was able to use my new Nikon Z7 and also make some 5x7 and 8x10 exposures of her.

Six Muses photo shoot at the Tyson studio

For the second year I did a large group shoot at the Tyson studio. This year it was a slightly different "cast" but like last year, six subjects. The complexities of posing six models is a challenge but the results, when its all working is worth it.

Photo shoot in the Tyson landscape

For a change of pace this year I did a photo shoot with a model in the Tyson landscape.

I was actually demonstrating using fill flash to one of my graduate students and the shoot not only was a good demo but I also got some interesting images out of it.
