All of the pictures were created using my Nikon D80. Pictures 1,3,4 & 5 with the 50mm 1.4 lens, picture 2 was with my 18-135mm kit lens. All the pictures were taking in daylight (no artifical light source) and I tweeked the images using lightroom 3 and CS5. For pictures 3&4 I used my tripod ( a basic Jessops tp 320 for now!) and shot each picture using the manual setting and in RAW. I played with the aperture and shutter speed until I had created the desired exposure and depth of field.
