I Like This Stuff

Doug Burr’s “Should’ve Known” from Jon Todd Collins on Vimeo. This cool video was shot using a Nikon D90! I’ve seen a number of videos created with the D90 but this is my favorite by far. Jon Todd Collins is the talent behind the camera. While you’re enjoying it, let it push your imagination, challenge your creativity and perhaps, just perhaps take your photography one step...

f2 or f2.8, that is the question

This movie requires Flash Player 9 Ever since the 200f2VR video was posted, I’ve been receiving a steady stream of emails with one basic question. It has to do with money (wish it wasn’t so but that is the nature of photography). Do I (as in me, Moose) see a difference between sharpness (both lens & DOF) between the 200f2 at f2 and 70-200VR at 200mm at f2.8? I do which why I shoot the 200f2 (and hence the money). The 200f2 is a wickedly sharp lens and with an inherent contrast that just makes it one of the finest lenses in my bag. I think though the better question is, will you see the difference? Should you spend the money for that stop? Yes, I’ve heard and read all that has been posted on the web about DOF and while the formulas might be dead on, the photographic examples proving a person point accurate, doesn’t change what I see and use in my photography. There are four factors...

What the hell is a “Fuzzy Moose?”

Yeah, that’s what folks have been asking for the last week now. It’s all Mikie’s fault, or in a grander sence, Nikon’s. Looking through their Premiums Catalog, something only dealers have, you will find a Moose wearing a Nikon scarf. I was totally unaware such a thing exsisted until Photoshop World when Mikie showed up with them as give aways. I actually feel kinda honored by it, I mean, there’s no Joe McNally stuffed animal (isn’t that a funny though; what would that be, a stuffed SB-900 with arms, legs and a scarf?). Well to say they are popular is an understatement. Forget selling photographs, we could retire on fuzzy moose sales, if we had them to sell. I stopped shaving for a few days, blew dried my hair but I guess a full size fuzzy moose doesn’t cut it. We are trying to obtain some of the real fuzzy moose for a give away at DLWS but there is no guarantee. In the meantime the one and only...
