I started taking photographs when I was a child using a old Brownie that I salvaged from a neighbor's rummage sale. It seemed magical how light could be captured locking moments in time. By the time I started college, I had saved enough to buy myself a Nikon FE. Ken Rockwell, a well known camera expert calls the FE "One of the most flexible, intelligently designed and most perfect cameras ever made." I must say that I wholeheartedly agree.
However, we have entered the digital age and there is often much more to capturing moments than vintage cameras and film. In fact, today's great portraits require a photographer to be a digital artist as well, or to employ the services of one.
I have been lucky in this regard. Having spent many years in the publishing industry, I am quite at home with digital photography and I personally apply any and all digital touches to my portraits and other digital images.
As for my favorite lens... that would be a toss up between the Nikon Micro Nikkor 105mm 2.8 for close-up "macro" work, and the 135mm DC 2.0, which is unsurpassed in its ability to produce those dreamy, creamy portraits that make lesser lenses whimper.
