Equipment

I am a Nikon fan so my cameras so far were a D40, D60, D7000 (an excellent model) and lately a big “upgrade” (after some time I really question whether the transition from DX to FX was really an upgrade…) to full frame with D610.

My lenses are:

  • 50mm f/1.8D (my preferred choice for most shots)
  • 24mm f/2,8D (sold)
  • 35mm f/1,8G (sold)

Recently due to family, weight and size constraints, most photos are taken with an iPhone 5s or lately iPhone 7.

Books

I recently read “Waiting for the light” by David Noton. Excellent photos, very nice descriptions and useful tips but I found a very interesting text regarding whether RAW post processing is considered “cheating”:

I know though that low contrast is a problem I can do something about later – if all the information is there on the RAW file I can optimize it in post-production. Cheating? No way, I ‘m just making the most of what was there at the time. It’s not as if I’m introducing any false elements; this is what I saw. Matching the tonal range of the subject to the photographic medium, be it film, paper or a digital image is what photographers have been doing since for Talbot’s day.
