Kan en lære noe via EXIF-data?

En diskusjon på Photo.net om bilder tatt av ingen ringere enn Annie Lebovitz, for den amerikanske kleskjeden GAP, gjorde meg nysgjerrig...

I wanted to find out how the Leebster decided to light her subjects, and so I went to the GAP's web site, where they have all of the images (in 1300x1800 resolution) that you can download. My goal was to find reflections in the eyes, etc. that might tell me how many lights she used, how she modified the light, etc.

The EXIF info shows that these images were shot using a Phase One P30 back on an unknown camera model. The most surprising thing to me was that some of the images list the camera as a Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II. So if the metadata is accurate, she shoots both 35mm and medium format, both digital of course.

For the 35mm stuff, she appears to shoot with a focal length from around 50mm to 85mm depending on her subject. f/13.0 is the common aperture value. ISO 100 is universal across all of these images; sRGB is the color space recorded from the camera.
