Levi turned up on his Indian last week and thought it would be a good idea to take a couple of pics of his bike with some fire performers.
I'd like to try again with some better compositions, I think Sophie would look better in front of the bike, instead of behind it. I didn't think it would be a good idea to get the performers too close...
Thanks Graham. It was a glorious evening - and surprisingly free of biting flies! I find foxgloves a very appealing subject for some reason. The first two took a bit more processing than I usually do, but the D750 files are great to work with.
As Kendo says, just take multiple photos, trying to pivot around a central point. I find it better to actually do panos with the camera in portrait orientation as it gives you more 'height' to the image. Photoshop and Lightroom both have panoramic stitching tools.
What you want from a walkabout lens - versatility, weight saving, fast aperture or sharpness is what matters rather than what someone else thinks is best. That said, for a walkabout lens I place most value on light weight, so the 24-85VR gets my vote.
i dont mind second hand as long as good condition, but usually would buy new. day to day lens for me is something suitable for when out on walks with the dog in the country side and at work (im a gardener) so plants, wildlife etc (will be adding a seperate macro lens at some point). still new to photography but my last camera (d5600) was nicked so need a new one and thought go for d750 after some research.
Calumet (WEX) used warranty is one year, I got a cracking deal with them for a D750 and a 24-70mm. It's not going to be as light as a CSC setup but for the price it's an awesome combination and compared to my A6000 it rarely misses focus with moving subjects such as my dog and children.
If you want to keep the weight down you could always go down the prime route instead?
Don't know of any 'good' deals but the D750 with 24-120mm f4 for £1448 is a great bang for buck. Panama have it for £1335 if you're happy to buy grey, not much of a saving though although you do get 3 year warranty. There's usually a bit of wiggle room with Panamoz.
What kind of photography are you planning on doing?
