  1. How to build a reputation - Part 5, lucky break and another new camera

    So in the best narrative fashion, time passes....... my photography skills continued to improve, my storage space continued to shrink but apart from the very occasional freelance gig things carried on as before more or less, until a new job opened up and after just over a year a small bonus plopped into my lap, the option was there for an upgrade,

  2. How to build a reputation - Part 4 New camera

    SO at last a new camera was mine, an ex-rental Nikon D2x, it fell of the back of a camera hire company through Ebay and a cheekily low offer I got a camera that a few years earlier had been the industry standard for pro news photographers, sports togs and anyone who wanted a camera that could be used to bang nails in with. Was it perfect? no the hotshoe

  3. How to build a reputation - Part 3

    In need of a spare or new body and having little or no cash is a pain, but during a visit from Gordon Brown after some serious flooding in the area (West Cumbria 2009) I had been lined up to try and get some photos of the PM at one location while the official new tog went to get into position at his next port of call he handed over his D2hs for me

  4. Why Not a Blog Y5D170

    Summer is flying, as perhaps you can notice, I am too busy enjoying summer and taking pictures, that 46 days or so passed since my last blog.

    On the equipment front, I really want to give a shout out to the super 70-210 F4,, what a wonderful lens, super sharp at a reasonable price, and the right weight, not some heavy tank of a lens,

    Hypothetical question- If you could only keep one of them, which one would it be ?
    I'm interested in the answer to that question too. I have looked at lots of photos and the ones taken with the D750 seem to have a clarity and a

  6. How to build a reputation - Part 2

    So for about a year we continued doing what we were doing, there were a large number of small festivals being run for charity in the area and no money, again I turned to ebay after a really odd bidding strategy I ended up with a Fuji Finepix S2 Pro, 2 x Fuji Finepix S1 pros and a Nikon D40 and a small assortment of iffy Nikon lenses, they were all

  7. Newbie Blogger - A History or how to build a reputation in photography

    Hi,
    Many years ago, not long after the dinosaurs had walked the earth I had a camera, eventually I progressed on to a Pentax Z10 35mm camera, I took lots of photos, I got fed up with paying a fortune to get things developed and gave up, sold my kit and stopped.

    Many years later I got hold of a HP 2mp point and shoot and the last

  8. Why Not A Blog Y5D124

    I can tell I am getting busy as the weather gets nicer, as lots of days passed since my last post.

    so,,, I just had to try one of those 12 mm 2.8 SamYang lens - Korean.. prime, around 340 dollars which for what it is, is quite the deal.

    so,,does it take a decent picture? Where can I get a decent valued NEW Nikon D700 or D300 online?-dsc_2936-skate-board-bw-smaller.jpgWhere can I get a decent valued NEW Nikon D700 or D300 online?-dsc_2936-skate-board-bw-smaller.jpg

    I gave the Nikkor 70--200 a bit more of a test at an Ultimate Frisbee game,, which required focus tracking and well fast focusing, so,, how did it do?

    so,, now a month with the DF and my love for Nikon is back! course,

  10. Why Not a Blog Y5D60

    I grabbed a quick shot of the cat, using the New ,, well used Nikkor 70-200 F4 lens. nice that the lens lets you get up fairly
    close, so,, an excellent portrait lens, and quite sharp. Totally no regrets on getting this lens. I feel my Nikkor set became
    more complete.
