Skull Study #4



After researching the properties of an alternative printing method called the "German Two Color Bromoil Process", I decided to see if I could reproduce the effect.  This picture is the result of my first attempt.


Camera: Nikon D700 
Lens: Nikkor 180mm f2.8 "Leni Lens"
Exposure: ISO 200, f/4.8 @ 1/30s, handheld, window light
Location: Grand Center Artist Lofts
Processing: DNG in Lightroom 2.7 and Nik Suite.

Great shot - wonderful composition. I like the way the skull looks out of the frame. I forgot that you had a 180mm. Isn't that a great lens?

Thank you, Ray. The 180mm is definitely one of the all time great lenses from Nikon or any other maker.
