You don’t take a photograph, you make it. - Ansel Adams
With that in mind, here is a fine collection of tools to make beautiful photographs. The rest is in the eye of the beholder.
* Nikon D3100 14.2-Megapixel DSLR Camera with 18-55mm VR Lens
. We prefer red.
* Nikon - AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 Zoom Lens. One of the two lenses that are all almost anyone would ever need.
* Nikon - Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G AF-S Lens. Beyond these two, you're starting a collection and that can get dangerous.
* Nikon - SB-700 AF Speedlight External Flash. Light has color.
* Manfrotto - 055 Series 70.3" Tripod. Steady as she goes.
* Manfrotto - Ball Head. With mounts, you get what you pay for.
* PNY - 32GB Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) Class 4 Memory Card. Memory is cheap; buy several.
* Lowepro - Slingshot 102 AW Camera Shoulder Bag. Take care of your toys.

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]

Yeah, Bluetooth audio is pretty common these days, so why should you care about these earbuds? Look how happy that woman up above looks. She’s got FRESHeBUDS in. Boom. There’s your reason. She’s also at the beach and it appears to be a very nice day.But for the sake of promotion, wireless earbuds are fast becoming the […]
