Eyes of Nikon

D7100 | AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR | ISO 1250 | 1/100 | f/4.5



Kabo studied photography on her own before becoming a freelance photographer in 1993. In 1998, she was in charge of still photography for Hong Kong director, Eric Kot's film “Dragon Heat”, and has since been presenting her unique style in fashion and music magazines, advertisements, CD jackets, and music videos while based out of Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Taipei. While Kabo's photos have an Asian air to them, they also possess a sort of stateless individuality. Her new style of photography seems familiar in any city but belongs to none of them.

Photographer's Eye

The 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G is the perfect travel lens. It can be handled in pretty much any scene, and also gives great colors and black gradations. The photos are very clear. I don't normally use wide lenses, but while looking through the camera to set the frame I suddenly found myself using it at its widest angle. With it, I'm able to take wideangle zoom shots with little or no distortion. It really made me realize how much lenses are steadily evolving. The 17-55mm f/2.8G is the type of lens that lets you discover things for the first time in a photo you wouldn't normally notice, even if you see the details with your bare eyes like blood vessels beneath the skin or details of plants. It can capture softness under a dim light, or even the moisture contained within an object. The autofocus on this - is also amazing. You can check all the fine details even in images where the scene is magnified to the edges of the wide-angle. This is the type of lens that gives me the ability to imagine my subjects in new ways by making me wonder what sort of shots I can take.
