About

My-Self Hello. Welcome to my personal webpage.My name is Michalakis Ppalis. I am an amateur photographer located in Nicosia, Cyprus. Michalis Palis  photography is a webpage dedicated to photography. Through this page  I  will show to the world my portfolio of images as well as photos from  places I visited. For me photography is a passion. It helps you see and respect the world around you in a different way. It helps you love people, love and respect nature and all the small things around. Photography is the only way to stop time and capture the moment. My photography journey started in 1985 when I bought my first camera which was the famous and fabulous Zenit 12XP. Few years later I bought the Nikon F601s and then the Nikon F80 with several Nikon lenses like the famous Nikon 70-210.  I enter  the digital era with the Nikon Coolpix 5700 and then with the Nikon D80. Three years ago , I have upgraded to the Nikon D300S and increase my arsenal with a few full frame lenses in order to be ready for the next upgrade to a full frame camera like the Nikon D800 which I hope will be soon. For my photographic excursions I mainly use the following equipment:

Cameras
• Nikon D300S
• Nikon D80 as my second body
Lenses
• Nikon 24-70mm F/2.8
• Nikon 70-200mm F/2.8 VR-II
• Nikon 18-200mm F/3.5-5.6 VR
• Nikon TC-20EIII AF-S teleconverter
• Sigma 10-20 mm F/3.5-5.6
• Sigma 100mm F/2.8 Macro
Flashes
• Nikon SB800

I also use several Cokin and Hoya filters especial for landscape photography. To support my camera, I use a Manfrotto 190XCPROB tripod with a 496RC2 ball head stability.
