In our first episode, I have a coaching conversation with Krista, who is struggling with reading her histograms. As we talked, I discovered that she was also having challenges evaluating exposure, so we added that to the conversation.
In the Camera Bag segment, we talk about macro lenses on the Nikon line. Esmaralda sent an email asking for advice. I share three lenses that could be good solutions for her:
- Nikon 40 mm f/2.8 - Performs well, and you can't beat the price: $276 at B&H Photo Video
- Nikon 85 mm f/3.5 - Moderately priced macro and portrait capability. Not too fast, but the VRII helps. Good sharp lens: $499 at B&H Photo Video
- Nikon 105 mm f/2.8 - Great portrait and macro length. Fast as well. Won't disappoint: $899 at B&H Photo Video
In my closing segment, I share some advice from Sam D'Amico's blog post Lesson from a Dog and my thoughts on finding your own creative style. It reminded me of my post on finding your personal project. Both approaches challenge us to look inward before we look out.
