Down on the Farm…

Whilst visiting a relatives farm recently I spent some time wandering about taking photos…

    I enjoy you taking the time to publish this publish. It has been very helpful to me in fact. Value it.

    Nice technique and pics, may I ask what kind of lens setup do you have at the moment. I own a d7000 too but shooting families mostly, want to give it a try on landscape, what filters would you reckon.

    The first three images were taken with my Tokina 12-24 f/4 lens and the last with the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8. I also have a number of other lenses which I use for various different purposes (Tamron 90 f/2.8 (macro), Sigma 50 f/1.4 (portraits, low light, etc), Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 (general, walkaround), Sigma 8-16 (architecture, indoors, landscapes, etc), Nikon 70-300 (general tele), etc)

    I mainly use the Tokina 12-24 for seascapes/landscapes/long exposures/etc (because I can use filters with it). I use the Lee filter system (it’s a filter holder which screws into the front of the lens and it hold plate filters (generally 100x150mm)). This allows me to use graduated neutral density filters (of various strengths and adjust the angle and horizon line, etc).

    If you wanted to start off with landscapes my recommendation for the first two things you need though are a good tripod and a circular polariser filter.

    Thanks for the prompt reply, interesting. Your works are really inspirational to me, and if you did not write down that you use a d7000,I would have thought that you were using a d700 or other fx cameras.Your use of the 70-300 which is deemed mediocre by most review sites are really great and far beyond expectation. I was thinking of stepping up to a d800 but after seeing your work, I’ll just stick to the d7000 for now and try to maximize its abilities. I’ll check out the Tokina 12-24 f/4, most people are usually using Tokina 11-16 f2.8. I don’t really have any wide lens at moment, my current setup includes nikon 35 f1.8g,50f1.8g,17-55 f2.8,85f1.4d, &70-200f2.8vr.I already have a sturdy manfrotto tripod that I use for my food photos, I guess I’ll have to check out both the cpl and nd filters, what cpl filter do you reckon, lee filters are not available here in Thailand, would have to order from ebay. Many thanks, Sam
