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.
Despite vowing to do so I’ve not been keeping the blog here updated. Social media is the enemy to this sort of thing. So time for some catch up.
Back in July, Habs came back into the studio to model one of her own Double Crossed Clothing t-shirts. We also took a lingerie shot with her in fully fashioned stockings, something that I’ve wanted to shoot for a long time. No lasers this time, but always fun.
While editing those I found leggings shot from our last shoot that I had never properly processed. The latest version of Lightroom came to the rescue. New algorithms FTW.
