Its been about a year since I've signed in, so it's good to finally be back on. I recently made a friend who is a web developer and he wants to purchase a high end DSLR. In part of buying this camera he intends to have me use it to take photos for clients' web pages that he works on. So we need a professional camera. He wants to spend between 3000 - 4000 usd on a camera and ideally two or three lenses. I prefer Nikon as I feel they are easier to use. The ideal camera I can imagine is the d800, however the purchase of this would leave almost nothing left for a lens. I also have been looking at the d300s but it seems a bit outdated. Anyway starting out we will be using the camera primarily for product photography, whether that means it is a still life or active use of a product by a model. The products may also be a service or membership depending on the client's needs. I know that one of the first clients he needs photography done for in the next few weeks is a makeup brush manufacturer. I'm imagining that we'll need some action shots as well as some macro still lifes for this job. so lens suggestions would be much appreciated. I'm extremely excited about this as it will be my first professional shoot. I'm looking forward to hearing what you guys have to say. Thanks in advance for any help and once again its good to be back on here at cic.
