There was a incredible sunset going on yesterday and there were a number of other photographers with tripods out along this road to get the shot. So I decided to pull over and set up. I was 15' away from another photographer and no sooner did I get set up. He came over frantically yelling at me. "This is my spot" "This is my spot". Now, mind you, this guy had his camera set up 15' away from where I was. And there was a string of photographers on the other side of him.
I would have set up my tripod, and took a picture of him. I'd then tell him I was just documenting him using his spot. Then hug him.
If somebody is crazy, just be more crazy.
The D810 is said to have a half stop better high ISO, and lacks an AA filter among a couple other things. I don't see it worth a thousand dollar upgrade, which is what it would likely cost. I'll wait and see what the next generation offers...(the D810 replacement). My D800 simply rocks anyway.
Amen to that. Plus switching gear so fast..you really don't get to learn it like you should.
When your camera becomes an extension of you, there's less between you and the vision you're trying to portray..instead of getting stuck in menus.
This is by far my favorite shot out of the bunch. Surreal photo. You should be proud to have this in your portfolio.
