The battery showed a full charge, so I loaded it into the Nikon D810, grabbed the Nikon 85mm f1.8G and twisted it onto the lens mount, and asked the kids to come here. Lilly was first up.
Dialing in the aperture to f1.8, I could immediately see the Christmas tree was going to make a bokeh’licious backdrop.
The Nikon 85mm f1.8G works great on the D810. No complaints with this bokeh. 🙂
Ella was up next. She loves to pose for the camera.
Nothing but natural light, or perhaps it would be more correct to say, existing light since it’s a mix of incandescent light bulbs, sunlight through the front window, and Christmas tree lights.
I tinkered a little with the white balance in Lightroom and toyed a bit with a few other sliders, but to be honest, the jpgs looked pretty good straight out of camera.
So far, I’m really liking the Nikon D810, and the Nikon 85mm f1.8G seems to perform VERY well with it. Talk about a power file! You’ve got room to crop, and then crop some more with these 36 megapixel files. 🙂
