It can be instructive to remember that sometimes less can be more when it comes to how we compose an image. In my last article I mentioned that we can learn a great deal by going through old images and thinking about how we could improve them. This posting discusses lessons that I learned from reviewing three old photographs captured back in the fall of 2014.
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.
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. This article shares a selection of 10 consecutive images captured at 60 frames per second to illustrate the potential trade-off benefit.
I’ve had a number of readers who are intending to add some Nikon 1 gear to their kit contact me by email the past day or two. Many of them specifically asked about the Nikon 1 V3 versus the V2 for photographing birds in flight. Continue reading Nikon 1 V3 Versus V2 for Birds in Flight
During our recent trips to the western USA and New Zealand my wife has started capturing quite a few photographs, mainly using a Nikon 1 V2 fitted with a 1 Nikon 10-30 mm f/3.5-5.6 PD zoom. This article will give readers a glimpse of Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland through the eyes of a beginner. Continue reading Wai-O-Tapu through the eyes of a beginner
My wife and I recently returned from a ‘bucket list’ trip to New Zealand where we did field work for an upcoming e-book we have planned for 2017. While our focus was on landscape photography I did manage to capture a few images of New Zealand sea birds and mammals. Continue reading New Zealand Sea Birds and Mammals
On Labour Day weekend I had the opportunity to capture some images during the 2016 CNE Air Show in Toronto, Canada. Continue reading 2016 CNE Air Show Aircraft Images
I went out this morning with the intention of trying to capture some images of hummingbirds in flight. Sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate and I didn’t see any hummingbirds at all this morning. Instead I ended up trying to photograph some Purple Martin in flight. Continue reading Purple Martin in flight
I recently went to the edge of the Niagara Gorge to photograph some vultures gliding on the thermals and was greeted with such a large group it was almost like going to a vulture convention. Continue reading Vulture Convention
