This is another one of the images from the 105mm f1.4 lens shoot. The camera was the fabulous Nikon D5. No artificial light, no make-up on the subjects, lo reflectors or diffusers. Just the lens. Just the camera. Just the light that was there. Just the subject. Suffice it to say I was the weakest link in the entire project.
This image is from the NYC leg of the shoot. I shot this whilst waiting to be seated at my favorite restaurant in NYC, Dovetail, at 77th and Columbus. I have always been into abstracts. The abilty to play tack sharp crystal clear (pun intended) focus against a creamyness of bokeh is something I fell in love with every time I clicked the shutter.
Talk about W. Eugene Smith being right when he said "Why the best light is available light and by available light I mean any damn light that is available." Works for me
I have always held that the lens is the brush, the camera sensor is the canvas. I have also held the that the beauty of a lens is not in how well it handles focus but rather how well it handles from in focus to blur. I am by proclivity a zoom guy. For me to say what I am about to say means that one of this brushes will be staying home.This lens has a permanent place in my camera bag.
There is no image I cannot capture. There is no image in which my vision of the image and the beauty of moment that took me that is not enhanced by the beauty of the glass and lens design of the 105mm f1.4.
This has to be the sharpest lens I have ever used. It is also has the most beautiful Bokeh of any lens I have ever shot with as well.
So you want to know why I choose Nikon? Now you know.
Because of the D5/D500- I AM: A Super Hero. Because of the 105mm f1.4 I AM: A Super Hero with beautiful Bokeh..
