9/52 Uber Lens - NIKON 80-200mm

Wow see all the details! Large on black


First of all, HBW everyone. (Happy bokeh Wednesday for peeps from the outside haha)


I want to present you to the new baby of the family. My brand new NIKON 80-200mm f/2.8. It's a really nice piece of equipment and it is built like a tank! You get what you pay for! I will mostly use this lens to take action shot this summer for our soccer club. Can't wait to try it!


To make this bokeh festival, I used foil that I scrunched a bit. I pointed a flash on it and TADA! Also, you need to use to lowest F stop possible to have the biggest Bokeh.


To make the beautiful bluish color, I used a Full CTO gel on the flash pointing my UBER lens. I set the white balance on my camera to manual and a value of 2950. So, the light of the flash that is pointing to the foil and that it doesn't have a gel becomes blue.


I'll post another version of the shot tomorrow (without bokeh :P )


Here's the strobist info :

- NIKON D80 ~ ISO 100 ~ 1/250 sec ~ f/1.8

- SB-24 pointing at the lens with shoot-trough umbrella @1/16 ~ Full CTO gel ~ Snooted ~ 85mm

- SB-600 pointing at the foil ~ 1/64 ~ 85mm


P.S This is almost SOOC. I just cropped the picture.
