Three become one…

DSC_6992SDIM1337DSC_7625The Nikon D800E, Nikkor 35mm 1.4G and VSCO software – a marriage made in Heaven…well, actually made in Japan and California, if we’re going to start getting pedantic.

I use the D800E and 35mm for 90% of my personal and professional work. I think the 35mm is a perfect ‘Goldilocks’ lens – not too wide and not too telephoto, such a versatile focal length, with careful use you can make it look wider than it is, but you can also make it look as if a shot was taken on a 50mm.

There are also a lot of other photographers using it (VSCO have over 56,000 followers on their Facebook page), some are using it extremely well, others, not so well…there is now an obvious ‘over-cooked VSCO look’.

All the images here were made with my perfect como’

    I love Phil Kneen’s photos. At first glance, there is nothing special about the photos. They look just like ordinary photos. But if you really look at his photos, his models, his subjects emit so much emotion,expression, that it can be overwhelming. Check it out …
