There is this old abandoned train station just across the street of Claus studio that we use occasionally. That was about the last time I tried my big old Nikkor AF 300mm/2.8 for portraits. I’m sure I made quite a fool of myself standing in a bush with that beast, trying to get the right distance to Nina on that ladder, shouting instructions from some 20m away.
Slightly embarrassed I quickly moved closer, switching to the 180mm and the newly acquired 135mm DC. When I compared the shots later on-screen, the 135 DC produced the nicest skin tones of the bunch. It’s a really lovely lens!
After that shoot the AF 300/2.8 went back in the closet again and eventually funded the new AF-S 85/1.4 G some month later.
Nina called it her Bibo outfit… 🙂
