Still does not take care of people moving around in the booths at the show.

Last year at the CAF I ran into Paul when he was shooting. We sat and listened to music and chatted about his new camera. Let's put it this way -- his camera has available light capabilities way beyond the wildest possible capabilities of photographic film. Very cool!!

Paul's FF Nikon with a reasonably fast lens will have no issues with the lighting at CAF. Even my old Canon FF 6D would have been fine. Heck my APSC X-T3 was fine using a fairly slow lens. The issue with using my mirrorless electronic shutter and some of the artificial lighting is banding although my camera has a feature that removes banding. Camera DR has come a long way over the last 10-20 years, modern FF cameras are almost night vision devices now.

I used the tools I had without being obtrusive. Working with a tripod and lights in crowded rooms would have been disrespectful to the attendees. I got what I was after. The pictures speak for themselves.
In my studio I use a tripod, auxiliary lights, studio strobes, or led, or fluorescence, which ever I feel gives the results I am looking for. I use a remote shutter release that raises the mirror, pauses then fires shutter.
I appreciate the comments on the pictures, comments on how to take a picture not so much.

Paul,

Here is my constructive criticism.

Concept of the pics is great. These kind of shots can be used in full page ads. Its difficult to judge these shots because they are only 72dpi.

Overall, I am not impressed with ISO-12800. Pics are too grainy, they lack sharpness/details. Shots below 1/100 have motion blurr like reel-to-reel and Zu Audio.

Did some googling this morning for D810 and ISO-12800. DP review compared D810 and D850. Full size pics are horrendous for both cameras.

Since you are going to be a professional photographer, my feedback is tough, sorry. I would not touch IS-12800 with a 10 ft pole. Last week, I saw a photographer taking shots of a late cup standing in the middle of a pile of coffee beans. He used two portable spot lights (no softening devices) to capture the light and shadows. He must have take 40-50 shots of one arrangement. I guess, spending time before and after the show pays off.

I know you are constrained by the limited equipment you had on hand. IMO, Same shots with tripod, slower ISO and shutter speeds would yield drastically improved results.

Paul is a professional photographer, retired. He's not a wanna be, he's the genuine article. I believe he knows what he's doing and how to get the results he's after better than anyone else on this board and his photos are the proof.
