I will attempt to update this post with progress as the artwork evolves.
I am currently working on some (hopefully) flexible design elements to be used across marketing materials.
I have elected to use 45 degree diagonal line segment as a basis for recurring details and design elements.
I have continued this theme through to image containers now:
Diagrams and not-yet-finalised colour palette:
Proposed styles for diagrams:
Updated example of spread:
Here’s another one. For this brochure template I have elected to maintain one colour from the palette per spread. The SOR Orange on this one:
Here are some photos I took that, in my opinion, are examples of compositions that are best suited to this focal length lens.
I specifically refer to distance to the subject(s), the portion of the frame they occupy, and the range of number of subjects typically in the frame.
Beware the gear heads and pixels peepers out there. Is your kit lens good enough?
I have decided to put away the 35mm f/1.8 G DX and borrowed my brother’s Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm DX VRii. I had lots of fun with it.
By the way, it is just as sharp as the above mentioned prime and suffers from less flaring and ghosting effects.
18mm f/7.1 1/4000s
18mm f/7.1 1/2500s
18mm f/7.1 1/3200s
This for an APS-C camera. Could it be for a Nikon body?
Also see the article on Nikon Rumours:
A bit disappointed with the spec on the D7200. The world is talking 4K and Nikon’s newly-announced DX flagship DSLR still compromises on 1080p (60/50p in 1.3x crop mode). I guess it makes sense that manufacturers would not throw big bucks into developing pro and enthusiast level APS-C DSLR’s these days: Mirrorless cameras are closing in from the one side and more affordable full frame DSLR’s from the other.
