What is in my bag? People constantly ask me what lenses I use and what my settings are. Well as you may or may not know, settings change according to the light and the situation. In this blog I decided to just give you an idea of how I "roll" on location and in studio, let’s begin. First of all in my camera bag I have my Nikon D750, this is my main camera. It was my first full frame camera and I am in love with it! I have been using this camera for the past 3 years. I love it so much that I bought a second, once the price dropped after the Nikon D850 came on the market. If you want to check one out for yourself, here is a link where you can see what this amazing camera is about. NIKON D750 Now let’s talk lenses.
On Location Portraits: I always use the Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VRII I bought this baby 2 years ago refurbished from Nikon USA. I have never had any issues with it and every single image of mine you see outdoors is done with this lens. Below is an sample of what my settings typically are for outdoor portraits.
Traveling & Landscapes: When I am traveling and I know I will be shooting landscape or architecture photography my favorite lens is the Nikkor 16-35mm 4.0 It's perfect for landscape and wide angle shots. I usually like to pair this lens with my tripod and a shutter release depending on what type of image I am doing. Below you can see an image that was hand held and one that was taken using a tripod as well as the settings for both of the images.
In studio: My favorite is the Nikkor 85mm for headshots and sometimes for full body, if its a small child. If not, I go with my nifty fifty 50mm 1.8 or the 35mm 1.8mm. Here are few images using these lenses and the settings with them.
