Camera Stuffs

What do you shoot with?

• Nikon D600
• Nikon D7000
• Nikon D80 (Retired)
• Nikon D70 (Retired)

• AF-S Nikkor 80-200mm 2.8 D
  • I *heart* this lens. Oldie but a grandie! Great for dog stuff. Only downer is that it weighs approximately 500 pounds. It is the reason my right forearm is freakishly strong. Pop-eye, I tells ya! I would love to upgrade to the newer VR version, but why spend money if it ain’t broke, yes?

• AF-S Nikkor 18-70mm 3.5-4.5 G
  • Another portrait lens. Not really my thing, taking pics of stuff that isn’t moving, but this lens is good at it. Love using this one to play with filters. Probably would be good for landscape stuff, if you’re into that.

• AF Nikkor 50mm 1.8 D (Retired)
  • The Nifty Fifty! Everyone should have one. It’s cheap enough to buy two! Great for indoor shooting and portrait type stuffs.

• AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm VR 4.5-5.6 G
  • Who needs big glass?
Harrier Handoff (6)
• AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.4 G
  • Bokahlishious! 
  • DSC_1375

• AF Nikkor 70-300mm 4-5.6 G (Retired)
  • Crappy old kit lens that served me very well! Not so much “crappy” as just limited. Too slow for movement unless light is perfect. Great for straight on action though.

• AF-S Micro Nikkor  85mm 3.5 G ED (Retired)
  • The cheapo macro. Great starter.
DSC_4330 (3)

• AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED


• AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR


• Mamiya M645 Medium format w/80 and 45mm lens
  • This gets pulled out every once in a blue moon. I do enjoy shooting film but it is a) expensive and b) a little fussy. Because of the cost, you don’t just go firing off willy-nilly. A 10% success rate is a lot of time and money. I need to be in the mood to be finicky and pay close attention to things like background and framing. Fussy generally not my thing. Once or twice a year, though, love it.
