Nikon D90

I'm seriously considering picking up the new Nikon D90 that was announced this morning. I've been itching to jump for the D700, but the price has held me back. I'm looking forward to both low-noise high ISO performance and playing with the video seems fun too.

Heading out to Las Vegas this weekend and I'll be making my final decision then. Let me know if any of you see the D90 for sale anywhere (I'd prefer Amazon, B&H, or Adorama so I don't need to pay $80 in tax).

Keep on the look out for Vegas photos and my final decision on the camera :)

BTW: I've started posting via MS One Note because I randomly stumbled upon it.
So far so good.

September Prime Challenge

I know it's been a long while since I've posted, but I've been busy with moving, driving up and down from Champaign to Chicago, and attending various retreats.

Been shooting a bit lately.
Pics from Evanston Beach, Indiana Dunes, Botanic Gardens, Chicago, and a few randoms.

For the month of September, Peter Kim, Steven Lee, and I are doing a ONE PRIME challenge.

The rules are as follows:
Can only use ONE prime for the entire month (My weapon of choice is the 50mm f/1.8D)
Must take at least one picture a day and post.
The goal is to learn how to think differently by being stuck with only a prime.
The only time a different lens is allowed is for gigs/events.
As an additional stipulation, I am also manual focusing only on my D40.

If you want to join me, leave a comment with your blog and we can keep each other accountable.
