About My Equipment

          There is one thing that no photographer can take quality pictures without: quality equipment. This page is about my equipment: my camera, my lenses and all of the assorted paraphernalia to go with them.

          What to say about my camera? I could quote Nikon’s website and say something like this.

Photos and videos captured with the D3400 and a superb NIKKOR lens are as vibrant and lifelike as the moments they preserve. Shoot in extremely low light without a problem. Freeze fast-action in its tracks. Create portraits with rich, natural skin tones and beautifully blurred backgrounds. The photos you share will amaze everyone—even yourself.
 
          I might also tell you that this model of camera has an average rating of 4.6 stars across multiple shopping platforms. But that would only give you the salesman’s approach to this description. I want to give you something more. I want you to see, to understand the sheer joy of taking pictures with a perfectly customizable camera and sharing them with people who appreciate the process as much as the result. The Nikon D3400 is an amazing camera. It is light, fast, and most importantly, takes high resolution pictures. The D3400 is simple in its design, yet it still takes professional grade images. The D3400 sweeps away its competition from other brands, and emerges victorious as the best quality.
 
          No DSLR is complete without a lens. I have two lenses, and each serves a purpose. My Nikon 18-55mm lens is perfect for capturing the big picture, such as in large family portraits or for stunning landscapes. This lens can achieve a level of detail with few rivals, and still perfectly blur the background of a portrait. My other lens, a 70-300mm telephoto lens can zoom past obstacles to capture the perfect photo from a distance. My telephoto lens is optimal for photographs of sports, pets or faces in portraits.
 
          Even the best photographer cannot always get the best picture. That is why I have PaintShop Pro. With PaintShop, I can fix any type of problem that may be found in your picture. PaintShop can blur the background of your portrait, brighten the colors in your outfit, and remove any blemishes from the final product. With the help of PaintShop Pro, I can deliver higher quality images for the same price.
 
          Camera, lenses, and editing software, are like three pillars for a professional photographer. Each brings a different advantage to the table, and each has its benefits. A versatile camera, along with a selection of lenses and editing software can provide images for any occasion. With the three pillars at my disposal, I can deliver the high quality photos you want.
