To d90 or d300s that is the question

March 31, 2010

with summer fast approaching and time for what seems like all of my friends to get married, I have been asked to shoot a wedding. THis is not really that much of an issue as I am sure it will be a lit of fun and te photos will come out just fine. but I don’t think that my little Nikon D40 is up to the job. sure it’s a great little camera and will serve me well as a day to day but I think it’s time to upgrade.

the problem is what to get. the D90 seems to be a great choice and on paper is very similar to the d300s but I have this nagging problem thy whilst I am upgrading I should buy the best I can afford and that way I will not wish that I had spent the extra. the only trouble is it comes at a time when I have other commitments that should really take priority.

the d300s looks like a strong choice as it’s robust, fast, quick and can work in a studio environment aswell as out and about. something which I think the d90 is not able to do. tethering and wireless remote for flash units, a better autofocus motor and better user ergonomics. I have spoken to alot of people and read alot of forums and reviews and the d300s seems to be the better choice. I thinks it’s going to be a case of stumping up the cash.

also I am thinking of going all out and getting a sb-900 flashgun at the same time. I have been wanting to get in the flash photography for ages and at least this way I can now go on the the flash course held at Brighton garage studio.

anyway I’ll post back when I get it. whatever that maybe…

Definately Down but not Out!

March 8, 2010

Hey!,

Man, what a crazy few months it has been for me! plenty of stuff going on just some of it not really what i wanted to be doing!

This New(ish) day job i started nearly a year ago now, seems to be replacing the last one i had, with even bigger lows!. Now i truly am starting to feel like i am rubbish!… This must change! So in a effort to do so I am working on freelance stuff. I have some interesting little projects in the Mix and now got myself a nice little set up with a print house!

It’s frustrating when you see how easy everyone else makes it look so easy!

Still this is a quik one to let you know i am still alive and that I am still adding to this. Hopefully when i get the stable site up… I will add more often! I have put some New images on flickr. these are from last summer, as its getting to that time everyone can feel Summer is approaching its only fair to remind yourself WHY I love england and Summertime so much!

Looking around at new Garms for that summer vibe i see my good friend Josh Franceschi from Downbutnotoutproductions.com has released some Dope new Tees from his new “Spoken Word” pack.
