Nikon Quote # 302



“Buying a Nikon doesn’t make you a photographer. It makes you a Nikon owner.”

“No photographer is as good as the simplest camera.”

My first picture taken with my new camera in the middle of the night.

Finally I entered the wonderful world of the FX. Well, after so much hesitation in March of 2016 I took the plunge and I bought the Nikon D610 ($1300) after another price drop of $200 at B&H with some extra goodies thrown in. My Nikon D200 ($1500) served me  well for 8 years, R.I.P. Compared to the D200 it is amazing to see how much the technology advanced using my new toy, the D610! Shortly I considered to get the Nikon D750 ($2000), however, the only major advantage of the D750 over the D610 is the better focusing mechanism in low light. I decided on to put my hands on the D610 and I couldn’t be happier with my choice. In addition, I saved $700 for another quality lens! Now I have all the time to get familiar with my new toy and get to the proverbial next level with my photography!

Portrait Steichen Aphorism #21

“A portrait is not made in the camera but either site of it.”

Edward Steichen

True, you cannot make a great portrait if you don’t know your subject or if you don’t interact with him. Any comments?
