Light, Form and Texture 5

On a discovery of minimalist black and white photography where light, form and texture are more important than subject matter.

Landskrona Energi Building

 The rather eye-catching Landskrona Energi building photographed at night with my Nikon D750 and the very handy 24-120mm lens, handheld at 24mm, iso3200, 1/200s, f5.6 and -1ev. The photo is clean, sharp and has great colour & contrast. Certainly a very capable camera and lens combination.

Cathedral in Lund, Southern Sweden

Used my Nikon D850 & 24-120mm f4 combo in the cathedral in the city of Lund in Southern Sweden. The conditions inside the cathedral itself was typically quite dim but down in the crypt it was quite dark with very subtle artificial lights and natural light from some small windows. I set the camera to aperture priority f8, auto iso between 65 and 4000, RAW format as always and shot these all hand held. The camera predictably chose iso 4000 in pretty much all of these photos. I then ran them quickly through DXO Photolab 4 to work it's magic and exported to jpg format. None of these has been colour corrected or sharpened or had the exposure adjusted aside from whatever standard tweaks DXO PL 4 does when processing the RAW files.

Glimmingehus in Southern Sweden

Sunday family outing to Glimmingehus, a medieval era castle located in southern Sweden, built in 1499-1506. Took my Nikon D850 with the wonderful Nikon 24-120mm f4 kit lens that outperforms it's price-point by some margin. All photos were taken hand held, I had the auto iso set to choose between 64 and 4000 and outside it chose 64 and inside it was mostly 4000 with the VR of the lens taking the slower shots in stride without missing a step. I am very happy with sharpness, colour contrast and the clean pics at higher iso's.
