When one is a professional photographer, it is important to use the gear that will allow you to portray your talent and satisfy the client's needs. Although I had a number of lenses and a couple of cameras, I needed to extend the range and capabilities of my gear.
In addition, as I book more gigs, I want to have a reliable, talented partner with whom I also happen to get a long well... Who is better than my wife, whose work you have seen here in several occasions, specifically on this blog entry.
I never cared for the discussions about which camera brand is better... Canon or Nikon? I think both companies are putting out very good quality products.
I started with my father's Zenit 122 camera, which I still have at my place.
|The camera that started it all... Here it is, Zenit 122 with a Zenit Helios 44M-5 58mm f2 and a Tumax 16 flash attached to it.|
I also have a Kontep 200mm f4 and a Sekonic StudioDeluxe II lightmeter.
Although not in mint condition, they still work.
Now, instead of going through a painful change from one brand to another (as you can see, I have an extended family of Nikon products) I stick with Nikon, which I am extremely happy with.
So here they are, the three new members of the family.
|I needed a wide-angle lens and I needed it without breaking the bank. After long hours of research, this little Nikkor lensstole my heart.|
|An absolute beauty that was long over due... The 50 is here.|
|My wife is more excited than I am, which is a great thing!|
|Here is a family picture taken with my phone. I need to get better taking pictures with my phone... Or not :D|
I just wanted to share my excitement and joy with you. Next week, I will share the love and passion of yet another couple! See you then!
