BIOGRAPHY
Strictly a duffer, though I've been compulsive about taking my wife says "mostly bad" pictures since my first GAF Pocket Instamatic. Ah the joys of 110 film Some years back now I launched into the Brave New World of digital, having set aside my beloved N70 and FG for a D50. Mind, I did hang onto the F and F2AS the latter being the single most amazing machine I own. I still desperately wish Nikon would release a dSLR in the D50's price range that'll couple to AI lenses, but since that likely never will happen, I just did the next best thing and snapped up a factory refurbished D7000 and a used 18-200. After ten years on the D50, I thought it was time. My main photographic interests are flowers, insects, buildings, air shows and trains. I've done a wedding or two for money, and several for fun or as a gift to the bride groom, but I'm no great shakes at it mostly because I get the "shakes" - the D50's ISO 1600 setting is a Godsend to me. Actually, people tell me my wedding chops are improving nice to know I can grow. I've also gotten at least marginally adept at fireworks. Concerts are a real challenge, given most performers and venues are opposed to flash. The D7000 and the VR lens have helped a great deal combating my shaky-hold problems. The insane low light capability of the camera comes in handy at concerts "NO FLASH" doncha know : .
