Danny Santos II Shoots High ISO Portraits with the Nikon Df

Danny Santos II, portrait and editorial freelance photographer, recently published an awesome blog post where he pushed his new Nikon Df to the limit, taking portraits in low light at crazy high ISOs. You won't believe the image quality he gets out of the Df at up to ISO 4,500.

Fstoppers Reviews the Edelkrone Slider Plus, the Ultimate Travel Slider

If you shoot video, you know that sliders make all the difference. I personally love the cinematic production value you can get out of a slider; the kind of shots you can produce are those that really elevate the end product.
