1. Nikon D700 – I  love this camera so much that I’ve had no desire to upgrade since I got it two years ago. I will probably use it until its last breath.

2. Nikon FM2 – My very first camera, the one that made me understand the power of connection through photography. I haven’t used it(…)

It is a little embarrassing to say this out loud, but I love options. True for clothes, true for bags, true for books, true for take-out…and true for lenses. (To be clear, not true for husbands.) So with that confession, here is a look at my gear and my workspace.

I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark(…)

My bag and camera

I shoot with a Nikon D700 (and have a D200 backup that I used to take this image).

I love my Kelly Moore B-Hobo camera bag. I bought it to use as an everyday purse, so I could take my camera and a lens with me wherever I go. Perfect for a 365.

My lenses

Lenses listed from left to right:

1. The best-bokeh award goes to my Nikkor 135 mm 2.0 lens.

Someday soon my new studio will be built and I will have a lovely and professional work station. For now I have a “floating office” which is a fancy way of saying I do most of my work on my bed or the kitchen counter and  I actually do not work at a desk! I have a neck that can’t take sitting for long periods and therefore I work with my laptop on various surfaces(…)

1. Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 – I’ve only had this lens for about a month, but it is becoming a fast favorite! I love it for it’s versatility in length when playing outdoors with busy kiddos.

2. Nikon D700 (gripped), with 50mm 1.4G – I love this combo!! After upgrading to full frame last year, I am loving the 50mm length so much more for indoor work.

I have tried a few other bags that were much cuter but they never worked for me.  I started out with a bigger version of this bag and sold it for some of the ‘girly’ brands out there – I tried 2 different kinds – but just didn’t love them as(…)

I don’t have an enormous amount of gear, but I do use and utilize everything that I have.  My office space is pretty basic, and since we’re renting at the moment, it’s not easy to make a space your own.  But I have all that I need and it’s my own little corner of the house.
My gear:

1.  Nikon D700 with my 50mm 1.4D attached:  (Instagram picture, since I don’t have a back up camera)  I’m(…)

Five things about me:

1.  I am a mom of two and am married to MacGyver.  No, that is not his real name.  Everyone just calls him that because he is super-handy.  We rarely have to call repairmen because my husband can pretty much build or fix anything.  You will see several MacGyver-creations in the following photos(…)

1.  Nikon D700 – I shoot with a Nikon D700 and really love this camera. It performs wonderfully in every situation I have used it in and I do not feel the need to upgrade. (Ok, maybe the D4 tempts me every now and again.)

2.  Opteka Wrist Strap – I do not like to wear my camera around my neck. It feels cumbersome and clunky to me. So, I leave this wrist strap on my(…)
