Flower Photography

I have a couple of photographic weaknesses, Birds and Flowers.  Whenever I am out doing some photography shooting regardless of what my intentions are if I run across a great-looking flower I stop and take a photo or try to incorporate the flower into my scene. The great thing about flower photography is you really don't need any specialized equipment.  I have even taken flower photos with a fisheye lens.

Nikon 800mm f/6.3 VR S Thoughts and Considerations

The evolving Nikon Z line of cameras and lenses gets more and more complicated when trying to make buying decisions in the Nikon Z Mirrorless ecosystem, which is a good thing. Now the Nikon 800mm PF 6.3 is available to tempt you into the world of Super Telephoto photography. You too may be tempted to take the plunge, considering the closest super-telephoto is over 10k, 7.5 pounds, and has a shorter focal length, the new Nikon 800mm PF F/6.3 might just be the killer lens.

Northern Cardinal - Photography

I am lucky to live in an area that has Northern Cardinals year round to perk up my backyard and when I go out for Bird Watchers day. These medium-sized birds frequent my backyard on a daily basis throughout the year and especially during the colder months when I put out food. Not too pushy at the feeder and shares the feeding areas with smaller birds without any fighting. If there is a perfect backyard bird the Cardinal just might be it.

Improve Focus for a Nikon Z6 or Z7 Camera

Improve Focus For a Nikon Z6 or Z7 Camera: When I first reviewed my new Nikon Z7 and Nikon Z6 mirrorless camera two years ago I was somewhat critical of the focus performance in an otherwise excellent camera. Now after 2 years, and several firmware updates I am much happier with my Nikon Z mirrorless cameras for sports and wildlife photography. Why? It starts with understanding Nikon's Focusing system and applying settings for your photography needs.
