Interactive Book Of 1,000 Modeling Poses http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3421&interactive-book-of-1-000-modeling-poses http://www.michaelthemaven.com/?postID=3421&interactive-book-of-1-000-modeling-poses Tue, 21 Oct 2014 16:04:00 GMT
Commercial photographer Stephen Sebring and supermodel Coco Rocha collaborated to bring us a very ambitious project. Using a 360 degree rig they captured over 1,000 poses from 100 different angles and delivered a massively awesome book. It's over 200 pages and showcases what I'm assuming is every pose imaginable. With the book comes an app that allows the readers to dive further into the interactive aspect of this publication. I can imagine that this book would not only be valuable to photographers but models alike.

I've been shooting with the Nikon D750 for many weeks now and I have to say, I am very, very impressed with it.

This is a special camera, by far the best full frame Nikon camera for a number of reasons:

- Improved focusing systems
- Improved low light focusing
- Improved ISO performance
- Nikon Fixed the Live View / Aperture control bug we saw in previous models, you can now both change your aperture as well as see it in live view at the same time. Yay!!
- Improved HDR performance (it is very fast)
- New Processor which seems to solve some of the major moire issues I saw in earlier models with an anti-aliasing filter (which it does have)
- Tilty screen (very nice for a full frame)
- Wifi
- Built in Flash

All that said, it is as complex and difficult to learn as ever. The menu systems are completely loaded and some of the controls are a little counter intuitive. Once you know how to use it, it will be a complete pleasure to shoot. This is my favorite Nikon camera to date.

Ill have some little tests coming soon, but suffice it to say it compares extremely well to the Canon 5Diii , which while is an older camera (over 3 years) it has been considered by many to be the best all round Full Frame DLSR for that time. The D750 really gives it a run for its money, and at a cost of $1100 less, it is without question in my mind a better value camera.

If you have a Nikon D750 and are frustrated in learning it, there is no better way than my Crash Course Training Tutorial video which you can purchase here: Nikon D750 Tutorial Training Video Crash Course
