Video: Shooting Street Photography with the Nikon D700
In the latest episode of “Street Photo Diary,” I decided to shoot some street photography with the Nikon D700. The D700 is probably still my all time favourite camera. I love the ergonomics of it, and I love the images it produces too. While it is a big and heavy camera, and it may not seem like the first choice for shooting street photography, after a while, you don’t even notice the weight or the bulk.
I shot using the 50mm f/1.4 and I made the conscious decision to post process these into black and white. The relatively low 12mp of this camera, coupled with the full frame sensor, produces a really nice clean image, and with the 50mm you get that lovely full frame look. You can see the final images on my Photo Journal. The black and white effect was achieved using my “Monolith” set of Lightroom presets.
