Food photography is the perfect storm of all the technical challenges a still-life photographer can face.
Less than a year ago, Chris Niccolls dared to dream a dream that Nikon would make a DSLR based on a classic Nikon body. That day has come, so let’s see if the new Nikon DF lives up to Chris’ expectations.
Our goal with this shoot was to have a small, light kit so we could cover a lot of ground and get a lot of variety in the shots. So we just brought the X-E2 with the Fuji 14mm F2.8, 18mm F2 and 35mm F1.4. Every one of these lenses are brilliant performers, and they don’t weigh a thing!
Sony was good enough to get us some sample cameras well before the announcement date, and we were thrilled to be able to test what are clearly two of the most exciting cameras this year.
If you’re a photographer who’s not already printing your work much, maybe I’ll win you over to try it.
