2008 Burn Night photos

HAPPAY!

Seeing as tribe has fallen and has yet to get back up, I like others find myself on eplaya. It has been a while since I last posted here.

I'm still working on my 2008 images and have posted a web gallery/slideshow of my burn night selects.

These images were made with my new Nikon D700 Fx DSLR, hand held with the old Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 lens. The low light capabilities of this camera are stunning! Some of the images in the gallery were made at up to ISO 12,800 with very little noise/grain.

Have a looksie and let me know what you think.

The pictures were great, but you didn't need to buy that camera just for burning man.

The correct statement would be just before Burning Man.

This camera body will pay for itself many times over in the next year in my photo business.

The moisture/dust sealing on the D700 body also performed exceptionally well, not one dust spot on my sensor despite the white outs and I took no special effort to protect this camera.

2005 destroyed my then D70 Dx format sensor, glad I had purchased the extended warrenty that time.

Wonderful photos.

Welcome aboard.
Some sunshine, some dust, a little paint and a tutu. Yeah.

Oh you evil bastard.

I was out shooting with my D300 and I now have a massive case of ISO envy in a big way.

Beautiful pics brother.
