On Location with the Nikon D850: Froward Point

Getting to Know the Nikon D850

Since getting my Nikon D850 I haven't been out to take photographs with it as much as I hoped I would.  The bad weather at the moment always seems to know when I have time to go out with the camera.  However, I was treated to an epic sunset up on Dartmoor the other day.  I got some wonderful images and I'll be sharing them on my blog in the near future.  

The Nikon D850 is performing very well and is delivering me some wonderful raw files full of dynamic range.  I just wish I didn't have to convert them to DNG first....c'mon Adobe, update Lightroom, please!  LR issues aside this is a great camera and so I wanted to do a follow up to my Nikon D850 Initial Impressions video.  This video is my most popular video on YouTube to date and there seemed to be a real desire from people to know more about some of the capabilities of this camera.

So in this video, I take the Nikon D850 out to photograph seascape images at Froward Point in Devon.  This time I take a closer look at my workflow and how I put some of the features of the Nikon D850 to work.  

Froward Point

I've talked about Froward Point a couple of times on the blog and in my videos, but in case you don't know where it is, here it is on the map:

 

So onto the image itself.  Unfortunately, I didn't get the light I was after but I'm still reasonably happy with the image I took.

While the image might not be one that goes in the portfolio it was, as always, good to get out with the camera.  I'm still familiarising myself with the D850 so time with the camera at the moment is even more important.  Overall though I only have positive things to say about the D850 and I'm looking forward to shooting even more with it.

So have you been to Froward Point?  What new feature in the D850 interests you?  Let me know in the comments below.
