What setting do you keep the contrast setting on most of the time ? Is it the same for outdoor shoots as well as studio work ?

Since all my images go through Photoshop, I either shoot in Normal or Less Contrast, then pump it up in Photoshop. And, since you didn't ask -- I also turn Image Sharpening off and let that happen in Photoshop -- and generally set my white balance at Cloudy-3 or Shady-3 for outdoor shots and studio strobes.

Not sure what I did for this shot (too busy looking at the model)

You should shoot in RAW mode and then you can make all of the contrast, white balance, sharpening, and many other decisions after the fact in Nikon Capture or Photoshop CS. A little tip for shooting in RAW mode on the Nikon D100...TURN OFF COMPRESSION. Compressed NEF will save you a little space on your compact flash card, but will eat up immense amounts of your time trying to write your files. Just try it...believe me you will immediately see the difference in write speed.

Hey Mike,

Im a d-100 shooter as well..good to see a fellow nikon guy...I keep my settings on less contrast, normal sharpening. I dont ever change them...I find this keeps my work consistant..Like others..if I want or need something specific... I do it post-prod.

Hi,
Now that image rocks. I keep my settings on normal contrast and have sharpening off. I seem to get better pictures that way.

Mike

Marty,

when you shoot high key do you still do cloudy/shade -3? Ive tried that..makes the backgroud a little grey..I usually use flash.

I still use those settings for most of my high key shots, but remember that I take everything into Photoshop afterward and adjust the background whiteness. Sometimes I white balance for my arctic white backdrop and let the high key stay a little cooler. It all depends on what look I'm trying to achieve.
