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.
I also upload selected photos to the following sites
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.
Sites that I like:
- Alain Davreux photographic work with excellent shots especially from Japan, emphasizing on traditional costumes and activities.
- Paul Herman’s photography, an amazing nature and traveling website with photos from New Zealand and over the world.
- 25daysoff They have nice photos and useful, well-presented tips. Although most are well-known, I always find some interesting new ones.
- A very detailed tutorial on the D7000 Autofocus system and options. More complicated than I thought.
- Experimenting with flash technology; this is a very useful introductory article.
