Wedding photography is big business these days. Thatʼs why so many wishing to earn a living as a photographer (either part or full-time) want to become a wedding photographer. However, wedding photography is not all about taking some images on a day. Itʼs more work than most people realise and before they know it, it is too late! Here are my top tips to help you get started…
It may be small, but the D7000 packs a very powerful punch and as I write this, pretty much stands as the best DX DSLR to roll out of the Nikon factory to date. Despite the size and lower spec, I’ve found it actually compliments the mighty D3s (yes, really) as a second body quite well and I’ve enjoyed shooting with it not only at home in the UK but as far afield as the freezing valleys of Yellowstone National Park in winter.
It’s been almost two years since the Nikon D5000 was launched, and today its replacement arrives – the new Nikon D5100. The latest in Nikon’s consumer range of DSLR cameras, the D5100 has the same sensor as used in the D7000 and has also retained the tilt-and-swivel LCD screen from its predecessor. It is a lightweight camera packed with some great features.
The P7000 is Nikon’s first enthusiast bridge camera to follow the latest trend for fewer better pixels. It has a 10 Megapixel sensor – right on the current fashion and matching the G12 and Panasonic LX5 which are its main competition in a shopping list show down.
I wasn’t a fan of the original 24-120 VR. Build quality was OK but nothing amazing and the optics left a lot to be desired with a sharp centre that rapidly softened up. So when this new 24-120mm f4 version was announced I was curious to see if they had brought the lens up to scratch. After all, it’s a fantastic focal length for those that need or want a little more reach than the 24-70.
Time-lapse photography is not a new thing and is a well used technique for both film and still photography. We came across this video by photographer Mike Flores, created with time-lapse photography and were stunned by its beauty. Have a look at this video and make your own mind up.
Stop-motion is a similar technique to time-lapse in that in uses still image frames strung together to form a video. Kim Pimmel uses the motor from a record player, a variation of light sources and a Nikon D90 digital SLR to create a hypnotic video. The resulting light show is truly spectacular, and you could achieve it in the living room of a flat.

Today Nikon announced the Launch of their latest digital SLR camera, the D7000. As always, rumours of this camera had been abound for months, debating what it may or may not feature and where it would fit in the Nikon line-up. So what does the D7000 offer, how does it measure up to its peers, and why should you care? Let’s have a look…
On Thursday 19th August Nikon announced the release of their new entry level digital SLR – the D3100. Designed and created as a replacement for the best selling Nikon D3000, the latest offering from Nikon is actually far more of an improvement on its predecessor than their names suggest.
The world is a huge and amazing place with loads of incredible things to photograph. Unfortunately, the truth is that most of us will never get to see a lot of it, so sometimes it pays to set more reasonable photographic targets. With that in mind, your own backyard is as good a place as any to start, and you don’t need to have expensive specialist equipment. You might be surprised what you find there and the photographs you get.
