i bought this camera in excellent condition from a local guy for 20 thousand Pakistani Rupees, roughly equal to US $250.
the camera is heavy, cumbersome and all-manual. which basically means you have to do a lot of prep before actually taking a shot. they say its results are superb and out of this world, but i have yet to find that out...
am not considering a digital back for it, particularly because this will be my 'old school' camera :) i use my digital camera's spot meter to calculate the f/stop and the shutter :) but i am planning to get a viewfinder for it that comes with a built-in light meter, making things easier :)
Lighting: i wanted to give the camera a more 'brochure-like' look :) which is why i chose to employ both my flash units in remote mode :)
the flash to the left, the SB900, was fired at full power while the right-side flash, the SB600, was fired at lower power, enough to illuminate the camera's rear.
i knew two flashes would not only look good but would also give the photo more depth, more 3 Dimensionality. you be the judge of that.
my only complain is that i did not get the camera's lens properly lit. lots of room for improvement.
interestingly, it was shot with my standard 50mm prime lens, which did a decent job. now i only wonder just how good the 45mm tilt-shift lens will be for such shots.
did some levels adjustments, cropped in 6x7in format and presenting it here for your review :)
thanks for reading and viewing :)
