Kobe Steak House

Shot this on a recent trip to Orlando. I used an amber gel on the flash and shot at tungsten white balance. The flash was directed up and backward to use the wall behind as a bounce.

Camera: Nikon D3
Lens: NIkkor 24-70 f/2.8 @ 24mm
Exposure: ISO 1600, 1/25 @ f/3.5
Lighting: Tungsten plus strobe
Location: Orlando, Florida
Processing: Lightroom 3

Ray, my hat is off to your willingness to risk your eyebrows and expose $7,500 of Nikon gear to steam, oil, fire and sharp cutlery to get a shot! Seriously, very nice shot, Ray - you literally captured the sizzle!

It's funny you mention that, because I gave this some thought. This was an important trip in that it would be the last time we'd visit Ray and his fiancee Jamie at school before they graduate and head to LA. I made a conscious decision to lug the big camera everywhere to document as much as possible. The really challenging trip was to Disney World where I used the stubbiest lens I own, the 50mm f/1.4 to avoid bumping it on the rides. Got some good shots too.

I guess when you pay the big bucks for the camera you don't want it resting in the bag...

I know exactly what you mean - you're talking to a guy to took a Hasselblad 500 C/M, three lenses, two backs and 20 pro packs each of Kodachrome 64 Pro and Agfa 100 on vacation to Disneyland and Universal Studios. At least you're sensible :)
