Milky

 

Model: Milky

Evoke – Milky

On Monday I shot Milky for the first time in a few years, and took a couple of infrared images with my old Nikon D100. Looking at these images one thing is abundantly clear. Equipment really doesn’t matter.

The model matters. The light matters. The idea matters. The execution matters. But the camera? My D100 is 15 years old. It has a resolution of 6 megapixels. It was good in its day, but that day was over a decade ago now. The lens was a mid range Nikkor zoom, the 24-85mm f/2.8-f/4 AFD.

Any DSLR you buy now will be better than this setup. OK, mine is infrared converted (a simple internal low-pass filter change), which is why I still use it, and I really should replace it. But it takes images like this one, and that’s hard to dislike.

The moral of the story is don’t worry about your gear. I have better cameras and far better lenses. They don’t take better photographs.  




Tutu

 Chrissie arrived in Glasgow for a weekend of shoots with this gloriously mad black and red tutu in tow. Over the weekend she also shot with McInnes, Monkeytwizzle and Simon Pole, and everyone got to shoot the tutu. This is my take on it, but if you poke around the interwebs you may find some of the others.
