Since selling my full frame camera gear back in July 2015 I’ve had the opportunity to use a few different smaller sensor birding equipment options. Continue reading Smaller Sensor Birding Equipment Options
Scooters in Italy seem as plentiful as pigeons when travelling in cities. This article shares a selection of scooter images captured while on a bus tour of Italy in 2019.
This article shares some thoughts on noise reduction considerations that many of us face when deciding on our approach in post processing. There certainly has been a lot of buzz lately with new software like Topaz Denoise AI and DxO PhotoLab 4 with its DeepPRIME function, coming to market.
Over the years I’ve wondered how much potential harm we do ourselves when we focus on ‘chasing likes’ from others around us. How important is it that people like what we create and approve of it?
Over the past couple of days I’ve received a number of personal emails asking me about using Nikon 1 versus Olympus for bird photography. The intent of this article is to describe my experiences using both camera systems. This is a very extensive article, so grab yourself a cup of coffee… or make a pot of tea… and be prepared to spend some time.
This article shares a selection of Wyoming landscape images that were captured handheld during a self-drive photography tour we did through South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado a few years ago. We were on a pretty tight schedule and covered 10,187 km (~6,330 miles) during our 26 day trip. Unfortunately we didn’t have much time to spend in Wyoming.
This article features 16 consecutive photographs of a tern in mid-air at 60 fps. These images were captured handheld using a Nikon 1 V2 and a 1 Nikkor 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 telephoto zoom lens.
I recently spent some time revisiting some of my Nikon 1 V2 butterfly images, and reprocessing them in post. Since I made some changes to my approach to post processing by adding Topaz Denoise AI, I thought it would be interesting to re-do some old RAW files from 2015. All of the photographs in this article were captured handheld with a Nikon 1 V2, fitted with a 1 Nikon 30-110 mm f/3.8-5.6 zoom, and using MOVO extension tubes.
This article features a selection of hawk image rescue attempts that I did in post processing this morning. As regular readers will know I recently added Topaz Denoise AI to my standard post processing approach.
This article discusses small sensor landscape photography. It may be a good idea to grab a cup of coffee or brew some tea, and settle in for a while… as this is a fairly lengthy article.
We typically want to achieve deep depth-of-field with landscape images. So, our choice of lens focal length, aperture and focusing distance all need to be considered. It is also important to use as low an ISO value as possible to maintain the most dynamic range and colour depth in our landscape photographs when using small sensor cameras.
