|The Craft of Light||
This is taken in Thames, a town at the southwestern end of the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand's North Island. I am trying to find out who the creator of this sculpture is. Watch this space.
Ever since I outgrew my D5000 I have wondered about upgrading to a full frame camera (As defined by a camera with a sensor around the dimensions of 24mmx36mm). Actually "wondered" is far too tame a word! The correct word would be closer to 'anguished'! The reported difference in DOF rendition, better quality images, better results at higher ISO, my primes actually showing true size and whatever other benefits are associated with the upgrade, vs the weight increase of the body and lenses, the price hike for the body and lenses and the normalised 'reach' of the telephoto lenses. I went from the D5000 to the D7000 and I do really like using it. I like to shoot wide, my all time favourite lens is the 10-20mm Sigma. I like low light work and try to use available light and shoot hand held as much as possible, as a challenge. Depending of course, what I am photographing.

was taken at 1/8s hand held. Granted I was lying on my tummy and it is easier if your lens is a short focal length. Try that with a 85mm prime with no stabilisation! Not possible! So there are options, Nikon would be the sensible route with my existing lenses, but oh, the weight.. Does anyone have a full frame Nikon they would like to lend out for me to test?
