I couldn't agree with you more John. When I see wonderful photos, that I would like to try or learn from, I always check to see if there is EXIF data about the pictures exposure andother settings. Unfortunately it isn't always listed :)

Great shot thank you for taking the time to post here and be an active member.

Great Photo :)

Btw, the details embedded into the photo you mentioned is it's metadata. There are programs that can be used to remove this data, or add to it when needed. All you have to do is google something along the lines of "Image metadata editor" :) Though i'm not too sure what would be the best one to use.

The programs are very small, so it'd be a quick download for sure. Hope that helps somewhat. :D

Gosh, I hope you don't move on... have been an admirer of your work for quite some time now... I apologize for not commenting more frequently...

As to the data about your camera, settings, etc., inside your image, that's the EXIF information. There are quite a few programs that you can use to view or edit this information. My current favorite is ACDSEE, available here: [link]

Well, overall the D90 is a much better performer in low light than the D70. The only thing this baby asks for is a good lens. My favourite is the 50mm f1.8 (cheap and great) or the f1.4 (more expensive, but better sharpness full open). Try it, and you'll love it, if it suits your photography style! :)
I learned to take photos only with a 50mm, because I couldn't afford anything else, and today, guess my all around lens... ;)

And for me, this black and white is superb, the contrast is great!

Thanks, I actually went out and bought the 1,4 lens, took a couple of cute backstage pictures with it, and then stupidly dropped it, since when it just won't perform. I guess I should give it in to have repaired .. actually, your words are a reminder and encouragement to do so .. many thanks.

Beautiful image (as always) and great use of the negative space.

The data is contained in the EXIF file embedded in the image. You can access it with any photo processing software (Elements, CS3, etc) or even via a plug-in if you use Firefox for your browser.

I think that's what makes your work so admirable - there is clearly so little processing and yet you achieve consistently great images. And by the way, a sincere thanks for sharing your art and being an inspiration.

If you use Adobe Photoshop and Bridge then you'll find all the image details in Bridge.

You most likely received some imaging software along with your camera. Usually, that software is capable of retrieving the EXIF data (the "camera information") from the image ... or google for an "EXIF reader" ...

Ciao John.

It's been a while...

Nice photo, love the double diagonal, the model's position, the fine details of wine, lamp, ecc.

What I don't like is the light, a bit too dark, I think. Especially when the shoe rised up disappear in the dark of the wall.

Beside this, as you know, I always envy you.

See you soon, John, tell me the next time you'll be here in Italy.

Would love to know what lens you use then, my Nikkor DX 18-105mm,3,5-5,6 G ED is a disaster !

:iconedgarpoe190:

It's the zoom which came with my D70s. A cheap one: Nikkor 18-70 G ED, 3.5-4.5

In my dreams, I'm thinking of the same thing, but in the pro series, opening at 2.8. I rented one lately, and believe me it's not a simple matter of F-stop. The construction is somewhat different... just as the relsuting pics (and the weight and price tag too, of course!).

My other zoom is a Sigma DG, 70-300, 4-5.6. Still it's not very expensive, but i find the results quite acceptable for the price.

What are your concerns about your 18-105? Sharpness ? F-stop?

Very good lighting and mood in the shot. The only real "problem" I can see, is that there is a lot of nothingness in the shot, but at the same time the amount of blank white the bed adds against the darker color of the wall adds to the model's positioning and expression.

An interesting comment, thank you. It would be relatively easy to zoom in, but the empty space is there on purpose. In my view it serves to better place the model in the context which she is, anf thus ultimately to focus on her, but of course it is a matter of opinion. Thanks for passing by. John
