This is the story of two photo shoots — one that had to be canceled, and another that may well be one of, if not the, most important shoots of my life. It is also the story behind the reason I haven’t posted anything here in quite a while. Two of my favorite events were happening on the same weekend, May 31 thru June 2: the annual OKC Pro-Am bicycle races and the not-quite-semi-annual air show at Tinker AFB. I had planned on shooting the bicycle races on Friday evening and S
UPDATE: After returning the foot to Really Right Stuff, they have refunded the purchase price. Back when the 500 PF very first came out, Steve Perry did a review. Steve does great videos, and especially when it comes to Nikon cameras and lenses, really knows his stuff. He shoots some pretty amazing photos, too. But it was his review of the 500 PF that convinced me to buy this lens. You can watch the video by following this link. It's an excellent review, and Steve does a
I saw an article the other day that asked what Nikon should put in the as-yet-unannounced D5 replacement (the D6?). Most of the comments were for things that I don’t need, so were I to "upgrade" to a higher end body, a D5 or D850 would be fine.
But what would *I* want to see changed, not only in the D5, but in any prosumer or higher level camera? What would it take to get me to upgrade?
I’d like to see some changes in the menu system. First, we need to be able to “lo
Very often, someone just starting in photography has questions about what camera or lens (or both) they should buy. If they ask a salesperson in a photo store, they may get great advice or they may get advice that serves only to help the store's bottom line. If they ask an established photographer, they may get advice centered around whatever brand of camera that photographer shoots with.
But in almost every case, that newbie photographer will hear something like this --
I was recently asked to photograph Traditions Fine Furniture and Design for their website and other publicity work. There were some interesting challenges.
Normally when I shoot the interior of a house, I shoot strictly available light. There have only been a couple of times when I needed to put up additional lights, which almost always results in a huge amount of post processing.
This store, however, has huge north-facing windows, and lots of interior lighting. To a
I've been thinking about #worldwildlifeday and wondering -- considering the rate at which poachers are murdering these magnificent animals, will the day come that the only ones left are the ones that, like these, live in zoos? I'd love for them all to be free, but would setting them free be a death sentence for their entire species? #wildlife #wildlifephotography#wildlifephotographer

Over the last couple of weeks, I've found myself involved in several ongoing conversations about 2 different types of photo shoots, both of which are, IMVHO, very, very dangerous.
Interestingly, while the dangers of one would, at least on the surface, appear to be quite obvious to even the most casual observer, I was struck at how many photographers flat out refuse to admit that these practices can be so very dangerous, not only to themselves, but in many cases, to their
I had an experience recently where I was able to get a little more creative than usual with some of my paid photos. I shoot for a local magazine, and was asked to create a portrait of a local home stager. Stagers are people who are experts at decorating new or otherwise empty homes that are for sale, so prospective buyers can get an idea of what the home would look like furnished. I called Glenn to arrange for a time and place, and he said he'd really like to shoot the port
A couple of weeks ago, my life changed forever. No, I didn't dump my Nikons for some other brand. Never happen. There's not enough money in the world . . . No, I didn't leave my wife -- and she didn't leave me. It was a little more complicated than that. It was the day my new 15" MacBook Pro arrived, and it's presence has, for the first time in my computer life, made me a full-blown Mac computer user. I bought my first computer in 1989. An 8088 PC running MS-DOS. Monochro
