DSLR a Nikon D 80, not Nikon's proudest offering and a standard consumer 18-105 3.5-5.6 speed lens, she is putting together some fabulous photos. Yes, I am biased, but I am a photographer as well from way back in the manual camera's and if you were lucky you had an electronic light meter. She i putting together quite a portfolio of orchid shots among other subjects. I wish my learning curve had been as smooth and quick as hers has been. put some of their commercial glass in her hands with proper lighting and she really would be blowing your doors off.
Enough of that spiel, but she really has become a fine photographer. (of course she had a fine teacher) hahaha
