Photography Workshop for Teens at NY Film Academy

Added on by Jaime Permuth.

I spent last week with a group of fifteen talented and precocious teenagers at NYFA Photography. 

We had an amazing workshop in and out of the studio.  Participants had a chance to try their hand at street portraiture, street photography, urban landscapes and studio lighting. 

Here’s a portrait of Briana by Marygrace using a single, continuous light source.  I’ll definitely be missing these young men and women.

Testing the Nikon D800

Added on by Jaime Permuth.

This week I borrowed an instructor D800 from New York Film Academy (where I teach) and did a bit of testing with it.  This shot was taken at f/2.8 using a Nikon 24-70mm zoom.  Normally I prefer to shoot with a prime lens, but we have yet to get some of those in our equipment cage.  Overall, I'm really happy with what I've seen: the files are incredibly sharp and I've had no issues with digital aberrations. I'm seriously considering upgrading from my current camera, the D700.
