Kane at the Pancake Manor

High ISO (12,800) because I can.

WIth the high iso and conversion to b&w, I think I've achieved a fairly film like quality to this shot that I'm really digging at the moment.

  • David de Groot said:
    Well, yes ;-) And I've got another stop above that if needed (although you really have to be in emergency mode for that one).
  • SkattyKat said:
    lol, Jealous James ??
    & David, James' response is probably exactly what you were looking for, considering the taunting "because I can" lol
    Neat shot though :-) Cool hat Kane lol

    Works so well in black and white.
    Kane looks like someone from Guys & Dolls, or The Sting.
    Nice work!

    Given Canon's release cycle for the 5 series, probably 2011 ;-)
    Thanks Matt, quite happy with this one, mind you Kane is a photogenic guy.
    Oh I hope not, this was post breakfast and frankly, I was stuffed ;-)
    Yeah, I think when I eventually get around to my film noir shoot I want to do, I know who I'll be asking to model for me ;-)
    Indeed! ;-)
  • James Lagden said:
    Perhaps the 60D/7D then!
  • David de Groot said:
    It'll be interesting to see what comes next. I would imagine a refresh of the 1 series isn't too far away, if the rumours of the D4 / D4X are true.

    At least it's not Matt's arse-crack (as featured in Mel's facebook album).

    Great portrait. I can see I will have to tag along on the Portrait sessions in future to learn techniques. Married life must agree with you, Kane.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Thea :) About time I got out and took some more portraits, it's been a while.
