I am the proud owner of a Nikon D5100 since July 2012 with the following kit lenses and speedlites
1) AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
2) AF-S DX Zoom 55-200mm f/4-5.6 G ED
I've been stalking the forum on and off for quite sometime and I finally decided to create an account here I hope I would have a great experience with the pros here and it's my new year resolution to take more beautiful pictures.
With that, I would like to seek my very first help!
I'm into portrait photography as well as miniatures photography. Let's go down to my portrait help first. I am a huge fans of cosplay events especially. I am in love with one of the photographer's shoots and I managed to gather that he is using Nikon D300, 17-55 & 70-200 lens with flash at aperature mode F2.8.
I would really really love to learn his style of photoshoots. Can anyone advise me if getting a AF-S DX 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED would be good for such portraits shots? And how to get such nice flash light on the subject! I own an Firefly Aurora but I dont get such effects!
Thank you and have a happy new year
