The Yongnuo YN-468 II is an outstanding flash. I just want to put that out there, right at the beginning of this review. I purchased it about 6 months ago. I was getting more into off camera flash, and wanted a cheap speedlight that had some useful features and didn’t cost a ton. I originally found it on eBay, and ended up buying it on Amazon. Fimd out why it’s such a great flash….
Auto FP/High Speed Sync can be a little confusing, and when I first wanted to explore it, there was a decent amount of information on it, but some was inaccurate or incomplete. I wanted to explain the technique in plain english. Come on inside and check out this fun way of capturing images that really pop!
I started out with a D3100 a few years ago when I started using DSLR’s. It was a great starter camera, but lacked a few things I really wanted. For starters, I love love love that the D90 has an internal focusing motor built in. This is a “pro” feature, and I believe the D90 is the lowest end Nikon camera that has the feature. The reason I like it so much is that I buy a lot of older, used lenses, which of course don’t have a built in motor, this solves that problem and saves me quite a bit of money. Some people don’t care about the motor, as they always buy the newer Nikon lenses. With a newborn just added to our family, my photography budget is pretty small. After the jump find out the reasons I love the camera, even if it is old by technology standards.
I recently had my first family portrait session. I am definitely drawn towards photographing people more than landscapes or static objects. I love manipulating the light, mixing ambient with flash. In the days of digital, you can get instant feedback and adjust accordingly. I wasn’t ever serious about photography before digital, so I imagine that it was much harder to gauge a photograph, using light meters, modeling lights etc. Recently I had a photo session with all of my nieces and nephews, including my 10 week old son and my 4 week old niece. Lots o kids, and it was crazy. It was also a lot of fun and I managed to learn a lot too. Check it out after the break.
