Check out my new video below – this takes a close-up look at pictures I shot with Phase One kit (645DF and p40+ back) at recent Shoot Experiences in London. I used a 75-150mm Phase One medium telephoto lens for most of the images seen in the video, and the quality of the lenses you get with Phase One is something I find quite exciting. I highlight how the pin-sharp quality of the lenses makes the images that bit more beautiful in detail, fitting for fashion pictures of made-up models. Although this might not make a difference to an image until it’s needed at a larger scale, the 40mb resolution along with that important depth achieved means the images can be viably cropped in post-prod as close-ups.
Images shot with 3 different lighting set-ups: flash, constant and natural lighting, are all shown here, and despite the staggering weight of the camera, plus the volume of the long lens on top of that, I was ok shooting handheld all day. Hope you enjoy the video.
Next video to come: shooting with something big and bulky, that didn’t turn out to be so scary. Not just the 645Df but a 9-foot python. I’ll be showing behind the scenes footage, and beautiful close-up detail, of my recent nudes with a snake. This will demonstrate one great use you can put all that massive resolution to: printing big for galleries.
