: A C T I O N S :

My equipment:

Canon 5 D for portrait sessions

Nikon D90 (some portrait sessions, most personal work)

Nikon D700 wedding workhorse!



Nikkor 35G (stays on my D700)

50 1.8

28mm E series (mf)

85mm 1.4 (mf)

50mm 1.2 (mf)

homemade tilt shift

and many more, because I love collecting old lenses.

So you want to buy your first SLR?

I get this question asked all the time, if you are mainly purchasing for your own personal use, as a hobby then buy a Nikon. ALL THE WAY! I have experimented with entry level canons and the focusing and slow response had led me to miss some shots.

Check out the Nikon D5000 or a D7000. If you want to save some money, buy a used camera off craigslist. You can find decent ones for cheap, like the D40 or a D60.

The lens you SHOULD have is the very cheap Nikkor 50mm 1.8. You will make beautiful "blurry" background photos!

Where to buy:

Adorama call and ask for Joel! Tell him I sent you.

Good luck!
