School Days: Locked In
12-DEC-2006 Sam_Charupakorn

School Days: "Locked In"

Here's one for your bokeh files. Remember those school days?

"You got the key, the key to my heart,
Go ahead and use it,
Drag me in, slam the door,
and I'll be yours forevermore,
You got me locked in!
Locked inside your love!"

-Judas Priest, "Locked In" 1986

Note: The D2Hs is touted as having 'great' high iso performance.
I loved the camera when I had it, and it was for a time,
my favorite. A beautifully made, super-fast workhorse.
But to be honest with you, its high iso performance was not
all that (especially compared to even lower Nikon models),
and not much better than the original D2H, and almost no
difference if you shoot NEFs.

Nikon D2Hs ,Nikkor 85mm f/1.8 AF
1/80s f/2.0 at 85.0mm iso800 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

Excellent use of shallow DOF, and the yellow colouring creates a great mood. +V
