Just took these last weekend... probably not my BEST or favorite but I was happy with them considering I used someone else's d40 and kit lens for it.
^ Wow, those were shot with the kit lens? That's pretty impressive!
haha thanks... trust me I saw the camera I was borrowing that night and almost shat a brick (stupid me left mine at school and my buddy called me after i left and said he had a big show and needed pix). Not only was it a Nikon (I've only ever shot Canon and felt like I was reading Russian all night - come to think of it I STILL don't know how to change the aperture in manual mode on a Nikon even after that... I just shot on shutter priority all night) but instead of having a f/2.8 or even a fixed f/1.8, it had the 18-55mm kit lens. :x
Only reason I was upset/shocked is cuz my buddy told me his friend has some really nice camera and talked it up a bunch - probably to try and get me to come shoot on me and my GF's anniversary. Anyway, I had to shoot at 1600iso all night and couldn't really get anything faster than 1/125th or else it was pitch black. Though i was let down expecting a d200 or at least something like a d70/80, the d40 wasn't too bad, but for those conditions it needs a much faster lens to do any kind of substantial damage.
Those are pretty crisp for ISO 1600. I seem to max out my ability on the D40 at 800.
3 words for you... Photoshop gaussian blur
Canon 5D set on ISO 3200 pushed to ISO 12800+.
Great work, Matt. :thumbup: btw, your shots above of the Spook Lights and Stull are record cover material. Fun stuff!
