If there's even anyone who might be interested to know
the tools that I'm using for all these photos, here they
are. My first camera body is the Nikon F90X, which has since
been sold to make way for the Nikon F100. Lenses that I'm
currently using includes the Nikkor AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5D
IF-ED, the Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED, Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5D
IF-ED, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, Nikkor 105mm f/2.8D Micro and
Tokina ATX-Pro 28-80mm f/2.8. Previous flash unit used was
the SB-26 Speedlight which has been replaced by the SB-80DX.
Backup point and shoot cameras includes the the Minolta
Freedom Zoom 140Ex (with a 38-140mm Asperical lens) and
previously, the Yashica T5 (with a 35mm Carl Zeiss lens).
Tripod and monopod used is the Manfrotto 190B and Manfrotto
079-4, with ballhead Manfrotto 168 and 352RC. When I'm out
shooting, I'll have my gears in one of my three Lowepro
bags, namely the Lowepro Nova 5, the Lowepro Mini Mag AW
or the Lowepro Rover Light. Sometimes, my Domke PhoTOGs
photo vest comes in handy to hold all those little accessories
(lens cap, films, batteries, filters, etc) or even a small
lense while I'm busy shooting.
I started off shooting with Kodak films but have since
been using Fuji films almost entirely. These days, I've
mostly been shooting slides only. Fuji Astia (ISO 100) are
often used when I'm doing portraits while Fuji Velvia (ISO
50) and Fuji Provia 100F (ISO 100) are the other two film
that I've mostly been using. The slides are usually viewed
through a loupe on a small lightbox and are sometimes projected
through the relatively cheap and modest Leica Pradovit 150
IR slide projector.
Below are some of the stuffs that is on my 'wishlist'.
For lenses, the Nikkor AF-S 28-70mm f/2.8D IF-ED would be
really great (but way beyond my budget). As for the body,
I would definitely love to get my hand on a digital SLR
