Shooting the fog in Downtown Toronto with the Nikon D750

Shooting the fog in Downtown Toronto with the Nikon D750

A couple of weeks ago, I looked out the window of our condo late at night and saw the fog rolling in the city. We usually get fog early in the morning, so I thought it would be a cool shooting opportunity. It turned out I had rented the Nikon D750 for a corporate photoshoot, so it was the perfect opportunity to test it for cityscapes before returning it the next morning.

I love the D750. The quality of the RAW files is just amazing. I had it paired with the 24-70mm f2.8, which is obviously a great lens. The sharpness is absolutely stunning compared to the files of my D7000 (cropped-sensor). And I’ve got to say, the low-light performance is pretty amazing too. These shots are at ISO 100 but my indoor portraits shot at ISO 1000 don’t show any noise at all.

I want to go for a full-frame camera next year, and the Nikon D750 is an extremely serious contender. I just wish Nikon had a better line of tilt-shift lenses.

I decided to play a little with white balance on these shots to give them an eerie and futuristic feel. I used a lot of clarity on the foreground buildings and worked on the colors.

Let me know what you think!

    Michael, I’m telling you . . . full frame is the way to go 🙂 Next thing, we’ll both have to go for medium format digital. Bob

      I know Bob. Just have to save enough money now 🙂 and with these 50MP DLSRs, who needs medium format today?
