Whats new in Nikon D7100 from a photographer’s point of view ?
In the viewfinder there is a new type of display, it looks better than the regular green.
When Using the D7100 with Nikon 85mm f1.8 AF-D, I was very happy with the crisp, sharp portraits it produces. It feels better in the hand than D7000.
I did not compare the high ISO because I never use more than 1600 and if it was good enough in D7000 it should be also good enough in this one. I can just tell you that it is.
Next test was just two photos made in a typical sunny day in Jerusalem, both cameras set to JPG FINE, Picture Control as is out of the box. Photos were shot at Apartue priority at F8
Many words could have been written about the new amazingly sharp sensor and superb built quality, best viewfinder in it’s class and more, but they are written all over the web, and they are all true. So I will try to give you more real life photos soon.
For now my conclusion is if you use good optics you will see that it is really a great camera and the new sensor is exteemly sharp, if you plan on using the kit lens or some high range zoom, you better save your cash and buy a D90.
A new long project, taking my photography from the daily news work in to fine art landscapes in Black and White.
It starts early in the morning, seeking for the light that works on different areas of Israel.
Here are the first steps I took in the field, the final product will be a series of prints that can be called “Fine Art”
Every photograph here feels to me like it has something to tell me about the way the landscape wants to be photographed. I work within the frame of Black and White, and learn about shape, field, line and contrast.
The world is full of images of Jerusalem, images of symbols and images of big and small lies.
There are some other sides to Jerusalem, I try to photograph them.
I will try to share some old-new thoughts about photography from now on. Along with my own off beat gear reviews…
So this Gallery is a small gear review for my good old X100.
Here is what I have to say about it after 18 months of using it:
That’s it for now about cameras, and that’s more than enough!
This story is about me and public spaces in Jerusalem, and some other places. If I want to be more accurate, it is about the people who use the public spaces of the city, the little stories that happen to each of us when we travel through the public spaces that gives the urban landscape its rhythm and soul.
It is also the story of my personal work, since 2001, not only in Jerusalem but on every spot that I have been working, I was in the progress of building my language and it feels right to start writing down the music that’s playing inside me now.
My own poetry, my own language.
The Jerusalem photographer photo blog is back to life after a long summer away from Jerusaelm.
Here are some impressions from the holiday atmosphere in Jerusalem during Sukkot, a week long holiday that brings many cultural and fun events into the city of Jerusalem.
The parks are packed with families and the regular park users (like my dog and I) and there are some events like the Birkat Kohanim (Priestly Blessing) ceremony, which is traditionally held at the Western Wall every Sukkot and Passover. I will go out in few minutes to take some photos of the Festive parade in Jerusalem’s streets Marching groups, walking orchestras, street artists and dance groups will participate in this beautiful parade.
Wait for updates soon. NOW UPDATED WITH PARADE PHOTOS
