Isolating those moments in Africa

Going to Africa I was torn between bringing my 200-400 and my 600f4. I was always told to bring the 200-400 because everyone said it was the perfect range of lens. Once I was there I completely understood why I was told that. It is a great range to use and I used my 70-200 […]

The Clean Up Crew

Well the Safari was one hell of an experience! The amount of different species we saw in such a small time frame is truly astounding. In nine days of game drives I came back with over 70 different species photographed! Now some of those are fleeting moments of critters as we were passing by but […]

This is one of those items that I tend not to think about as much because up until this past year I hadn’t used with it very much. Over the last couple of years I have started to use my SB-900 flash more often with my Aviation projects and this past year I have been […]

Unless it gets to the point where there are too many holes in my pants, shirts or shorts then I don’t see the point in buying replacements. Well this is one of those occasions where the job requires something new. The […]

Load up the Lexar Cards!

You might be seeing this and thinking to yourself, “that’s a lot of Lexar cards!” Well you’re right it is a lot but that is all part of the prep work. When prepping for any trip you have to keep in mind what projects you will be working on and what you will need to […]

Big Game in Fall

The last lesson for the week is quite a simple one in context but can be the most difficult in the long run, in part because not everyone lives in an area where these guys live. The last lesson is to go out and find the big game. The big critters Elk, Deer, Bison, and […]

Go Black and White

Lesson number four is pretty straight forward, go black and white. Again it’s easy to be seduced by all that color but remember that all of that color when converted is just going to be bright white or grey against a dark background. It’s really simple to get a strong black and white out of […]
