About me:

Landscape photography during spring, summer, and fall. Still life during winter.

HEA-45's current gear

Nikon D300S
Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF
My first and only DSLR at this time.
Used for photos during events with family and friends
My first wide angle lens. It's designed for cropped sensor (DX) cameras. I bought it used in case I upgrade to a full-frame camera next year.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G ED VR
Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 Di Macro
My main lens for landscape photography. It replaced the used Nikon 18-70 lens purchased with the camera.
Used for macro shots of flowers. Works well for still life shots.
Other gear:
  • Camera Bag Tamrac Explorer 400: This is my only camera bag. It carries an extra lens, several filters, lens wipes, multi-tool, memory cards, etc.
  • L-Bracket system for tripod This is a custom made L-bracket that allows quick changes from portrait to landscape orientation. The system consists of the L-bracket itself and an anti-sag bracket for the camera.
  • Lee Filter Foundation kit Contains filter holder, adapter ring, and three (3) neutral density soft-edge graduated filters (.3, .6, and .9 values.)
  • Lens hood system for Lee Filter holder This is a custom made lens hood designed to fit the Lee Filter Foundation kit holder. The system consists of of the lens hood itself, a lens hood cover, and a small bracket for the filter holder.
  • Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod kit Kit includes the 190XPROB aluminum legs and the 496RC2 ball head. A custom made L-bracket was designed to fit this kit- see description above.
  • Miscellaneous items This includes items that I use constantlly: Nikon MC-30 remote release, Hoya HD2 polarizor, Hoya UV filter, and extra camera batteries and memory cards.
  • Nikon Capture NX This is my secondary RAW editor. I use this to edit photos that will be printed.
  • Nikon SB700 external flash The flash is used with an off-camera cord, color gels, diffuser, and spare batteries.
  • Nikon View NX2 This is my main RAW editor. Although it has fewer functions than Capture NX, its interface is easier to navigate.
  • Personal Computer OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit Motherboard: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.50 GHz. Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX650 1 GB. RAM: 16 GB. Monitor: Dell U2410 24" LCD
  • Tiffen variable 2-8 stop ND filter After some research, I decided to purchase a variable ND filter- rather than a filter with one value. This proved to be a wise decision.
