Wedding & Portrait Photographers International Convention 2010 in Vegas

Last year I attended the annual WPPI convention in Las Vegas and thought it was an awesome experience. There were a lot of great lectures, tutorials and contacts I made during the event. You also get a lot of free stuff :) So I definitely recommend it for any photographers looking to learn something new or be inspired.

The next one coming up is in March 4-11, 2010. The trade show is free I believe so even if you’re just in the area, its worth stopping by and taking a look.

The Best Nikon Lens Combo for Street Photography

Street photography is one of the most popular photography styles that attracts people to the field. It’s also one of the hardest arts to master, not only because of the technical difficulties in finding interesting compositions and being able to handle the camera on the fly, but also because many people are intimidated by shooting photographs of strangers on the street. This is why small, compact lenses are ideal for this type of photography, in fact many street photographers use smaller more inconspicuous cameras as well so as not to bring attention to themselves in public, allowing them to shoot intimate moments they would otherwise have disturbed.

What are my favourite Nikon lenses for DSLR street, portrait and photography in general?  The 2 below, read the post to see the sample galleries and to find out why.
