Nikon D610 camera with my recent painting Eulogy in the background
This camera and the attached Nikkor 50mm lens is a huge improvement over my old Nikon D80. With this camera and the Britek lighting set up that was awarded to me from a previous 2012 RPAG, I will now be able to take professional photographs of my finished works with out the expense of paying a professional photographer. Any photo reference I may need will also vastly be improved. The last added benefit is that this D610 is capable of taking high quality video. I foresee using this feature to create both promotional and "how-to" videos.
I want to thank the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County, especially Brandi Neuwirth, for this wonderful opportunity. I very much appreciate the support this local institution provides for our area artists.
