Make cash with your nikon

NPhoto - - Make Cash With Your Nikon -

If you en­joy shoot­ing sub­jects that talk back, maybe it’s time you started mak­ing cash from your por­traits. You don’t need much equip­ment if you start by tak­ing out­door por­traits in nat­u­ral light. Any Nikon D-SLR will be up to the job, although the higher res­o­lu­tion of the latest mod­els will give you the op­tion of pro­duc­ing larger prints than some of the older mod­els.

You also need to think about your lenses. While a kit lens can pro­duce great re­sults, a wider-aper­ture stan­dard zoom, such as the 17-55mm f/2.8, will al­low you to achieve shal­lower depth of field than the f/5.6 max­i­mum aper­ture at the long­est end of most stan­dard zooms. The other lens that’s worth in­vest­ing in is a 50mm f/1.8, as this will give you even nar­rower depth of field and al­low you to shoot in low light with­out hav­ing to in­crease the ISO.

Step­ping up to full frame, any Nikon is ca­pa­ble of pro­fes­sional re­sults with the right lens. Again, the high-res­o­lu­tion mod­els will give the op­tion of huge prints, but even shots from an older cam­era such as the D700 will print up to A3. When it comes to lenses the 50mm is a good start­ing point, but the fo­cal length is a lit­tle too short for head-and-shoul­ders shots. An 85mm f/1.8 gives more flat­ter­ing re­sults, or if you can live with the smaller max­i­mum aper­ture, a 24-70mm f/2.8 or 70-200mm f/2.8 are ver­sa­tile (if pricey) op­tions.
