It's been awhile since I've posted here. I'd say I've been busy, and it'd be true, but then that's no real excuse not to post here. Anyway a lot of stuff has changed in cameras since I started this photoblog, not least is the rise of the retro camera. I've got a new camera, but it's not one of those -- in fact, I've recently upgraded to an even bigger DSLR-- the Nikon D600 -- and I couldn't be happier with it. The move to a 24MP full-frame is a real big change and believe it or not, it's a lot sharper than I ever thought it'd be. Anyway this photo is an unretouched shot I took for one of my camera reviews. Since the beginning of this year, I've been using a 2 soft box set up which gives a nice even, soft light to studio shots. For lights, I actually use two Nikon SB600 speed lights set to wireless mode. It looks pretty darned good, if I say so myself. Nikon D600, AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 VR.
