Revisiting V3 Osprey Images
This article shares a selection of Nikon 1 V3 osprey images which were captured handheld using a 1 Nikkor 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 zoom lens. Over the past little while I’ve been culling through older files to get prepared for some computer upgrades. This has resulted in the review of a wide variety of photographs as I decide whether to save, cull or revisit them in post. During the past week alone I’ve culled over 368 GB of old photography files. 🙂 Lots more to go too! Including my back-up drives my computer system is running 50 TB of hard drive space.

Irish Mallard In-Flight

Using 60 Frames Per Second
There are times when using 60 frames per second can make a lot of sense, even though a photographer may have to give up continuous auto focus with this fast frame rate.
