...I am resurrecting this Blog. It has been a year of smashed dreams and new hopes for me. I was just unable to write much of everything. Well, the year is new. Hope springs abundantly and I have learned so much about the craft, art and mechanics of photography. So I want to share some of what I have learned with anyone who will read here. Below is some of what I will share.
Flashes are fun! I have 4 flashes now. Two Nikon SB700s and two Nissin Di866 (these puppies are really powerful!) I will be exploring the use of flash in Macro and Outdoor settings and sharing what I have learned. I am also using them in studio situations. Even more fun.
Old lenses can be great lenses. I was forced - for financial reasons - to sell my Nikon 70-200 AF-S VR lens and "downgrade" to the older 80-200 AF lens. I have discovered that this lens has not hamstrung me at all. I will share this adventure. I also have a 50mm AF f/1.4 lens that I am in love with as well.
Does film have a place in the digital world? The obvious answer is yes, but what does this mean? I have shot some interesting images on film as of late. The cool thing is that I can still edit them digitally. I will share this as well.
Sound interesting? Can I address anything else you would like to talk about? Let me know. I will do just that!
Best to you all!
