Youtube? I Think Yes.

I started a youtube channel. Why? I don’t know yet, but so far I have been enjoying it. We all spend tons of time watching other people record themselves to teach, share, or entertain. So now, I want to document with this medium as well.

As a photographer, I know that I’ve spent a huge part of my experiences behind the camera. Perhaps I will sit in front of it a bit more, knowing that I’m still doing the shooting. We shall see!

A Must To My Nikon Family

I confess! I’m a Nikoner. From point-n-shoot to serious DSLR. I’ve had other cameras, but the Nikons are the breed that I carry in tow daily. I can’t tell you how many Nikon vs. Canon conversations I’ve had over the years. One of my closest pals, another photographer, is loyal to her suite of Canons and we’ve playfully had shoot-offs to show pride for our breeds. Sony Alphas have now joined the mix, thanks to lovely photographer Oculus, so it certainly keeps things interesting between all of us.

So why this one? Well I already have a D40, D90, and a cutie pie S570. For the type of work I do, D3 doesn’t make my wallet smile and D3000 is a “you gotta be kidding me” model. I used to love the D200, but enjoy the details and improved shared points on the D300 (NOT to be confused with the $500 buck D3000.) So I bumped it just a little higher on the upgrade to more stable ISO and picked the D700.

It’s been out for longer than a year and I’ve been able to research other Nikoner feedback on it. So now, or shall I say very soon, she’s coming home to join her siblings.

A true review from dpphotojournal.com posts: DevHardware reviews the Nikon D700 and writes; “No camera can ever be all things to all people, but from the currently available selection, the D700 is about as close as it gets…To put it simply, the D700 is capable of image quality unmatched at this price. By offering this level of capability and quality at $3,000, Nikon has raised the bar ”

Well that works for me!


Happy Hump Day

Okay, okay … so I’ve added another blog to the collection. What can I say? I like having different shelves for all the eccentrics pots of goodies that make up Me. Enjoy. The weather is gorgeous and apparently Snooki (aka Snickers) from fist pumping Jersey Shore is being photographed behind my office at Cake Boss’ – Carlos Bakery. Yes! I work literally around the corner from Cake Boss. Yummy cupcakes sans the touristy photo bugs always blocking the front door entrance.

Til next time.
