My Photography Equipment

Camera Bodies

Nikon D7200*
This is my most recent camera body. I haven’t had it long (June 2015), but so far I love it and am very happy with the pictures I take with it.

Nikon D90*
The D90 was my first digital SLR. I think it takes great pictures and plan on keeping it around as a second camera body. I have used it a great deal since I got it in 2009 and have taken more than 30 000 pictures with it. The battery will still last me 2-3 days of quite heavy shooting, now that’s a great camera.

Lenses

Nikon 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR*

Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR ED*

Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 Di SP AF/MF 1:1 Macro Lens*

Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF*

Accessories

BlackRapid RS2SW-1AS Women’s Camera Strap*
I love this camera strap! It’s super comfortable to wear and the camera is always within easy reach. At first I was a bit worried about having the camera hanging upside down from the tripod mount but it feels really secure. I still check the tightness of the screw every now and then, though. Can’t be too careful!

 

Image editing

Adobe Lightroom CS6/CC
Lightroom is easy to work in for basic photo editing and is easier to learn than Photoshop for a first time user. I love Lightroom for its image management; it makes it super easy to organize your photos.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 / Adobe Photoshop CC
Everything you can do in Lightroom, you can do in Photoshop, plus so much more. Photoshop is a much more advanced image editing software, which also means it has a steeper learning curve than Lightroom. I love Photoshop and use it daily.

Gimp
Gimp is a good, free alternative to Photoshop. Gimp is open source and works on Windows, Mac and Linux. While it isn’t an exact copy of Photoshop and it doesn’t have all of its features, it comes quite close.

 

Books

The Digital Photography Book 1, by Scott Kelby*
This is the first in a series of books; currently there’s five of them. This first one covers a variety of different shooting scenarios and is a great introduction if you have just bought your first digital SLR.
