The Griffin Interview

I recently received an email from Griffin Brugger, a student at Seattle’s The Center School, asking if I’d be willing to do an interview with him regarding photography. I was happy to oblige, and the questions he asked were so good that I felt they’d be perfect to include in a blog post.

w00t for vertical grip!

My MB-D10 vertical grip came in today.  The camera already feels much more complete than without it.  Nikon definitely did well on the ergonomics of this new grip.  I’ll of course have a more detailed review later on, but until then, here’s a quick photo from my phone:
