The lens invites you to create beautiful portraits with minimal depth of field and its f/1.4 maximum aperture and nine-blade diaphragm produce a superior bokeh effect with large, smooth spheres with gradual alteration.

2-QualityThis lens is the culmination of Nikon’s expertise in lens design, optical excellence and industry leading innovation. Its new optical design creates ultra-high definition across the entire frame, especially when used with one of Nikon’s full-frame (FX) high-resolution DSLRs, and its fast aperture allows selective, artistic use of that resolution. The AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED can defocus backgrounds with painterly finesse and isolate subjects with three-dimensional fidelity. For those seeking the ultimate in image quality in photography or videography, there’s no close second.

Meet the Instructor: Mike Corrado

MC_004PortfolioMike Corrado, has been a photographer and visual artist for over 35 years and recently celebrated his 29th anniversary with Nikon USA. As the Manager of Nikon Professional Services- Pro Relations and Product Marketing, Mike’s extensive career has included time as a Nikon School instructor, Pro Markets Technical Representative and Sr. Product Manager for digital SLR cameras.

Mike has had the great fortune of training, working with, and shooting for some of the world’s greatest photographers including astronauts from NASA, while contributing his own still images and video capture globally within Nikon for product promotion, educational materials, product brochures and Nikon’s USA web site. Several Nikon education DVDs that Mike has produced have won top industry honors and, “A Hands-on Guide to Creative Lighting” reached record sales within weeks of hitting the market and remains Nikon’s greatest selling DVD of all time. Mike is also a contributing writer and photographer for Nikon World Magazine.

Nikon has given Mike the opportunity to travel around the world to amazing locations including Japan, Germany, South Africa, and Vietnam. Assignments have taken him to several Super Bowls, World Series and Indy 500 races. He has covered the Kentucky Derby for 14 of 16 years, worked with the New York Mets, New York Jets and other professional sports teams.

Mike has spent the last several years working on his rock and roll portfolio “Rock Works” as a house photographer for Live Nation at Long Island’s Nikon at Jones Beach Theater.  He has had access to shooting several thousands of performances and over 500 popular bands including: the Police, Aerosmith, the Dave Matthew’s Band, Carlos Santana, Sting, Nickelback, Shinedown, KISS and more. Mike’s latest personal project, “Drumer Love”, takes on the challenge of capturing dynamic images of the toughest member of any band to shoot, the drummer. His unique remote camera setups on the drum kits of some of the world’s most famous drummers including: Daniel Adair of Nickelback, Barry Kerch of Shinedown, Greg Upchurch of 3 Doors Down, and, most recently, Tommy Lee of Motely Crue continue to get national acclaim and recognition within the music industry

Giving back is what it’s all about and Mike has extended his hand to donate his time and photography to amazing charitable organizations that make a huge difference in the lives of those in need including: the Ronald McDonald House on Long Island, Alicia Keys’ Keep A Child Alive organization, and animal rescue throughout the Mid-Atlantic.

MC_013Portfolio“Addicted. Blessed. Lucky. I am completely connected with seeing and capturing photographs and unique moments every single day. I’m excited to be a part of this business, working for one of the greatest technological leaders in photography today and working with the best shooters on this amazing planet. I’m even luckier to be able to give back by teaching, mentoring and shooting for some remarkable charities. I’m enamored with light, watching it, studying it as it’s moving and changing constantly. Recognizing the power, natural beauty and quality of light is one of the first steps towards becoming a more accomplished photographer. The next step is to learn how to make stunning light when it doesn’t exist. It is critical that photographers learn the craft and realize that the learning process never ends. That’s the coolest part!”
