This is the first post of a new experiment. In an attempt to improve the quality of my photography and to develop a style that is my own, I will be posting regularly. Hopefully, every week will bring a new photo with a description of how I got there.
I owe much of my learning to Glyn Dewis, KelbyOne (of which I am a current member), Tony and Chelsea Northup, Gavin Hoey, and Unmesh Dinda of PixImperfect. I have Glyn’s book “Photograph Like a Thief” and the Northup’s books “Stunning Digital Photography”, “Photoshop CC Essentials for Photographers”, and “Adobe Lightroom 6/CC Training for Photography”.
My current equipment has come from various sources. A three-light studio set bought at auction. Softboxes, speedlights, light stands, backdrops, tripod, monopod, etc. purchased via auction or Amazon.
The camera I currently use is a Nikon D200. This was a Christmas gift two years ago from my wife Carrie. She has been supportive and followed me on multiple ventures trying to improve my skills. She has been a willing model at times and a faithful assistant at others. She is the love of my life.
So now, off to this new adventure…
PS: Update! I have acquired a Nikon Z6 full frame mirrorless camera with a Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 lens. This is truly a game changer!
