Why I love expensive Nikon Glass (lenses)

Hey there,

Just a very quick sneak peek,

Saturday saw me shooting the 2nd wedding of the weekend for me, it was at the stunning Ettington Chase hotel in Stratford on Avon, it was the first time I had photographed a wedding there and what a beautiful place to get married at, well after the formals etc Caroline and I shot off to shoot the room and when I walked in my jaw hit the floor, it was amazing !!!!!!!

I decided that I needed to shoot this with NO added light, I wanted to capture the spender and magnificence of the room the wedding breakfast was to take place in, so opted for the Nikon 24-70mm F2.8 – my go to lens for general photography but what I love about this lens is its tack sharp wide open and distorts very little.  because the room was actually very very dark I took this photo at 3200 ISO hand held at around an 80th of a second at F4

I LOVE it, its NOT been through any noise reduction software and is pretty much straight out of camera, I just grabbed it as I was offloading from the laptop to the desktop.
