    I bought a Nikon D60 last summer, I havn't really had much chance to play around with it yet as I'm studying for my final exams which are in June. Is photography your profession or is it a hobby?

    Hi guys,

    Just an obsessed gear junkie, and 100% hobby!! I hope to be a pro photographer one day, but my day job leaves very little time to sort that.

    Gary.

    The D80 is a fandab camera, and I feel the 50mm f1.4 (or 1.8 for a bargain), and the 85mm f1.4 (again, 1.8 for a bargain), are both fantastic lenses. The D80 is on a cropped sensor, so the 85 might feel a little on the long side, but with enough space, you can really make the background absolutely melt. The 50mm f1.4 will be a touch wider, and the backgrounds will just slip away too...lastly, if you wan't to go for full body portraits etc, then I would have thought something around the 35mm range? Just speculating though as I very rarely do that type of shot...

    The one lens I think *EVERYONE* should own, is a 50mm in 1.4 or 1.8 flavour. One of the most versatile lenses ever, and absolutely sharp as hell.

    Gary.

    Hi Basil

    Great pics of your office Cavs ,our of our ladies fetches her Max to work hes a little Lasa Apso and he just disappears under her desk all day ,but a couple of years our MD stuck his head under and was saying good doggy and little Max jumped up and bit him on the lip Pat then went to the hospital for two stitches but he ended up with a little scar which he then elected for plastic surgery at £450 cost to clean it up ,so max still goes to work but Pat keeps well away ,plus we have 8 semi feral cats who sometimes wander into the office will try and get pics of.
    But the main reason for my post was those original photos of yours,can we have some more pls,have inspired so much I have got my D80 out and I am now determined to improve my skills , I have my two reasonable zooms and a nifty fifty but also have just bought a Sigma 10-20 and a Nikon prime 85 mm f1.4 and a Sb 900 flash so more practicing and reading but I know I wont get to your heights but thanks for the inspiration.

    Best Wishes

    That Nikon 85mm f1.4 is a BELTER of a lens. My favorite in fact, I never stop using it. Bizarre timing, just mucking around earlier and took this:




    Normally would not upload and post, as lots of issues with it. However, the timing was just perfect
