I’ve been taking pictures with cameras of all sorts since I was in the fifth grade. In those thirty years, I’ve seen the technology change from Polaroid Instamatics to disposable film cameras and now the digital revolution.
My personal preference is for Nikon equipment, though I certainly hold no animosity for Canon, Olympus or Pentax aficionados. If that’s what works for you in your pursuit of photographic perfection, who am I to say otherwise?
My current gear consists of a Nikon D5000, which I upgraded to from my original D70, with a stock 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G autofocus lens. For specialty shots, I use both a Sigma 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 AF lens with built-in macro and a Nikon 50mm 1:1.8D lens. (colloquially dubbed the “Nifty Fifty”)
To do color work in the camera, I have a full spectrum of K&F Concept 52mm filters.
I also utilize a Dynex tripod in the field and in the studio and Limostudio soft light box for additional illumination.
As a result, I’ve been able to capture some pretty great images, ranging from landscapes to action shots and intimate portraits.
