Another day in the park...

My sister, Alex and I went to lunch and visited Waldenburg park today with my new camera in tote. Lots of beautiful Autumn colors, mild temperatures and Alex was enjoying the breeze. Watching him interact with Kristy was great, although I think he's turned into a momma's boy.

Also, today was the first real chance to test out my new equipment and... I love it! If you have taken any photos of little ones, you quickly realize that reaction time is key in capturing that smile or expression. The D700's high frame-rate helped a lot in making sure I got those smiles.

With Halloween just around the corner, I'm anxiously waiting to see Alex's first costume!

New camera has arrived!

With the start of our business comes some financial dedication from both of us. I recently upgraded my current Nikon camera and lenses to pro-grade stuff and let me just tell you, the D700 blows me away! The focus is super fast and sharp, the low-light performance is nothing short of amazing, and the beautiful full-frame sensor gives my 50mm lens a true, 50mm focal distance.

I'm excited to use this tomorrow for its first portrait session. Coupled with the fast 14-24mm f2.8 and 24-70mm f2.8 lenses, this camera should put out stunning images in full color.

I'll post the photos from the portrait session tomorrow.
