new gear for a new season!

Wednesday, February 6, 2008

So I pretty pumped about the additions I've been making to my bag for this upcoming wedding season. I shot most of last season with a D200 and the Nikon 17-55 2.8 and the Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR which was great! Especially compared to what I shot with before that! (a D70 with sloooow glass )
I decided it was time to upgrade our main camera body to the Nikon D300 which was just announced a couple months ago. This one has a completely new sensor and is far more sensitive to light than the D200. I can't believe how clean and sharp the files are straight out of the camera!

But you can't just add a new camera body, we also added the Nikon 35-70 2.8 macro. This lens is a classic! It's one of the sharpest lenses Nikon has ever put out. I'm excited about all the macro (close up) detail shots I'll be able to get with this baby!

I snapped a macro detail shot just to show ya what I'm so excited about...

Nikon also has an awesome wireless flash system that we are aiming to take full advantage of this season. So we added the SB-800 to achieve all our fancy wireless dreams.

With the wireless capability we can use all kinds of cool light modifiers to get dramatic results. I'm especially pumped about using this on all our upcoming bridal portraits.
