Current work and thoughts
Posted on 23 Oct ’12 by Earl
I finished photographing the 22 local churches selected for the 2013 calendar of the agency I work for and I’m now in post processing of them to black-and-white as well as removing unavoidable obstructions…signs, power lines, light poles, etc. It’s a little easier this year, as only a couple of the churches were on main city streets, with all that brings.
My deadline for this project is next Monday, which should be obtainable. I’ve gotten faster and hopefully better since last year.
I’ve used my Nikon D700 in this project and I’ve been enjoying shooting with it again. I’m not ready to give up the DSLR camera yet even if some of the smaller mirror-less cameras are making a compelling case for it.
As good as the D700 is I would like to upgrade. I’ve dismissed the D800 and it’s 36mp as being simply too much for my needs but the D600 seems to hit a sweet spot — lighter and smaller then the D700 but providing superior image quality at a reasonable price — fellow photoblogger Ken Belloseems pleased with his recent purchase of the D600. I may sell some of my older and
seldom used gear and make the jump.
I’ve been back and forth on upgrading the D700 since early February…even had a D800 ordered at one time…perhaps I’ll follow through this time.
