Yes, with the 24-70. That'll cover everything I reckon.

Thank you :) 

 

Here are a couple I took today of a local hip hop artist and producer for his upcoming album.  He's been on MTV and is one of the hardest working people I know (he's a director of sales at a multi billion dollar IT company as well)

-I'd just like to paraphrase the NRA - 'Cameras don't take pictures; photographers do.'

 

While kit is definitely part of the equation, there's no doubt that skills, practice, practice, some more practice and skills is what makes for great photos.

 

Oh, and some practice and skills, too.

-Oops, my apologies for the confusion - I am not the photographer; that's hyogen/ Justin Lee.

 

I just had an idle moment after having just been asked half a dozen times by colleagues at work what camera I had used to shoot a photo we wound up using in a marketing brochure, and vented my slight frustration at you. :)

Hehe, I agree the photographer takes the pics not the camera, but really nice equipment certainly helps.  

 

I believe both of these were shot with my Nikon D750 and 85mm f1.8 lens.  There's a chance the first one was shot with a 35mm f1.4 lens.  I rarely shoot wide open at the largest aperture for multiple reasons.  The first one I used two speedlights with colored gels and second one I used one speedlight in a softbox.  

 

If you want to get better quick my best advice for you is to force yourself to shoot in manual mode and use fixed focal length lenses.  That way you learn how to control the exposure triangle and learn to frame your subject and decide on settings before you take the shot.  Also, just 3 short years ago I had no idea people did post processing.......I thought sharp, vibrant colors came from the camera and lens.  I laugh about it now :)  I've spent countless hours editing and correcting skin tones and white balance these past few years.  

 

Thanks for the compliments.  Definitely has taken a lot of practice and trial/error, but I'm still not done learning yet--I've still got quite a ways to go before I get to where I want to be.

I think I can't upload the full full res even on flickr, but much larger version here:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/hyogen82/16727926829/  This is a stitch of about 15 shots.

A great photo is much more than sharp, noise free, chromatic abberation free, and pretty bokeh (which by the way just means blurry in Japanese).
A camera operator believes a better camera results in a better picture.
A true photographer creates the image by using a camera.

A week ago even I thought about switching to Canon for skin tones....after this wedding this past Sunday in my most challenging low light venue yet I am happy to stay with Nikon.  Super happy with how my lighting strategy turned out.  Haven't even gone through 20% of the pics!

What's a "Canon"?
