Nikon SB-910 or Is It Time For A Shanny

Dominic Dorey Blog, Equipment, Nikon, Review 7 Comments

You, like I did, might well be wondering what on earth a Shanny is. You’ve probably already assumed that it must be something to do with camera lighting and it is, it’s a Flashgun. So why might I be interested in whether it should be time for a Shanny, well, on Saturdays wedding (22/08/15) my Nikon SB-900 blew its tube, going off with big bang just inches above my head. Did it make me jump? the dent in the ceiling should confirm that, but regardless of the fright it left …

Light Blue Software : Lightens The Load or Gives You The Blues?

Dominic Dorey Review, Software 4 Comments

Administration, paperwork, accounts, no matter what name you give it it’s hardly the most exciting part of running a photography business, but if you’re running a business then it has it be done.

Since changing camera systems I have noticed a change in the health of my back, specifically about 7¬†hours into a wedding day where I’m carrying both cameras when it starts to give me grief. I have been a fan and user of the Black Rapid Double Harness system for quite a while and back in the days when I was a Sony shooter it was a great system to have and use, but since switching to Nikon my cameras seem to weigh twice as much as the Sony’s ever did. …

Nikon D610 Review

Dominic Dorey Equipment, Nikon, Review 5 Comments

Back in March at the Photography Show in Birmingham, a show that was somewhat disappointing, I put an upgrade plan into action when I went ahead and bought a Nikon D610 to replace my D7000 with the aim of having two full frame cameras, being that my other camera is the D700, and so I thought I would do a bit of a Nikon D610 review. Though just to say this is no fanboy review, nor is it hugely comprehensive as I’ve only just put it through it’s first two …
