” Early Light “

Well early mornings are the order of the day on weekends for me at the moment. I am shooting a series of marketing shots for one of our local ballooning companies and getting out of the cot at 3.30am to capture the proceedings is trying me out a bit.  It really is the best time of the day though and playing around with high ISO’s on the D700 is working a treat as this together with light from the balloon burners and a bit of natural light is the go for nice natural looking shots. This was shot taken using 6400 iso at 2.8 with the 85mm f1.4 and run through NIK Define noise reduction software.  Shit these Nikons are Good.
