This article features some hummingbird moments that were captured handheld about six and a half years ago at Ruthven Park in Cayuga Ontario.
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
