The Nikon 200mm f/2 VR II: The World’s Best Portrait Lens

The Nikon 200mm f/2 VR II is one of those lenses you always read about, but short of running into a professional sporting event, an affluent amateur, or Ryan Brenizer you just don’t see them. They’re rare and they’re expensive, but besides the obvious lust factor of the lens, is it any good?

The Best* Portrait Lens You’ve Never Heard Of: The Nikon 135mm f/2

The Nikon 135mm f/2 DC is a bit of a gem in the portrait game but as the title might suggest, you might not have heard of this lens. This may be due to one of a few reasons: The primary being that it’s a reasonably old lens; it hasn’t been updated optically in its nearly 25 years in the Nikon lineup. Another being that even if you have heard of it, it’s probably because it has gotten a bad reputation as a “soft focus” lens due to its unique Defocus Control feature. [more]

Vincent Laforet Shoots 5K Infra Red with the Red Epic and MoVI!

Plus three gorgeous Brazilian triplets. But that’s not the point here.

Seriously though, I’ve seen a lot of crazy things done with the Red Epic, but I’ve never seen it shot without it’s IR pass filter. The results are the definition of ethereal. The biggest shocker to me though was that none of these shots, which included a very complicated Handheld to Rope to Handheld shot that looked like a crane shot, were all done without any post-stabilization or complicated steadicam rigs. All of the shots were done using the Movi stabilization system.


Affordable Rokinon and Samyang Tilt Shift Lenses Now In Stock!

The average tilt shift lens is will set you back nearly 2 thousand dollars so the option to have a tilt shift lens for under $1000 from Rokinon and Samyang definitely makes me take notice. B&H now has these two lenses in stock, along with the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 for Sony cameras! Check out the links below!


Jay P. Morgan Teaches You How To Balance Strobes and Daylight

Plus, he’s giving away an excellent Tamron 24-70mm SP f/2.8!

This is an incredibly informative video from The Slanted Lens that details an excellent way of shooting outdoors and balancing strobes with natural light. Some of these tricks were things that I actually never considered such as stopping down the camera and upping the flash to see exactly where the light was falling outside. Now that I think about it, it’s so simple that I should have been doing it from the start, but that’s why I love these videos!

Fstoppers Reviews: The Nero Trigger

Have you ever wondered how photographers capture bullets flying in mid air? Or get that perfect lightning strike in the middle of the day? Well the newly redesigned Nero Trigger will help you do just that. Short of the creative jolt you get when you upgrade from pop-up flash to a full off camera flash set up, I’d say that this is one of the biggest creative boosts I’ve gotten in a long time. This is a piece of gear worth having if you need to get the creative juices flowing again.
