Click2Click in the Big Apple!

14-15 June, that’s right, Click2Click is coming to New York! We just held our first one and it was extremely successful and we’re looking forward to keep the momentum going. This is a two day, very intensive course giving you the knowledge and confidence to take your camera and make those great images you desire to tell your story. We start in the classroom getting to know our cameras. We then go out for very targeted photography to make the shots to learn more about our cameras. Finally, we’re back in the classroom taking our photographs we just took into the Digital Darkroom to learn how we finish what we started when we went click. The price is $695 for the NYC course (includes instruction only). We start 0830 on Saturday, finish around 1700 on Sunday (we finish both days around 1700). This is a two day, 18hrs course for just 12 folks and we have 3 openings! You will need to bring just your camera body, basic lens,...

Back Up Slope They Come

We know spring has sprung at our home when the Steller’s Jays are back in mass. In the winter, the majority of them do a down slope migration to warmer haunts. But once the spring equinox occurs, back up they come. As the time gets closer to start a nest, the males are quite spectacular like this one individual. We had a snow today and that big, soft, overcast light was perfect to give them a little attention, especially with their lookin so good. Shooting from my desk, I just watch until a gorgeous individual appears and then simply go click. Their blue stripes in the crown are simply a blazed right now! With their crown erect, their stare down their bill penetrates the lens. This male was so close, I had to go vertical. Shooting with the D4s / 800f5.6AFS, horizontal cropped the tail so I had to go vertical. I was being, well, lazy and didn’t want to take the time to set up the softbox so...

GearHead Wednesday 14 -15

Got a gear question you want/need answered? I want to help and answer it. Send your gear questions to me at Gear Questions and I’ll do my best every Wednesday to answer as many questions as I can. Lots of great questions, somebody must have some tax refund money! Keep in mind the answers are just my $.02 worth and you have to take what works for you and your photography and embrace it and ignore the rest. So here’s this weeks questions …. Moose, First I want to say how much I enjoy following you through your photos.  I had an opportunity to attend one of your seminars at a Photoshop World and it was great. I am getting ready to go to Iceland in July with the family and I have booked some Photo tours just for me.  I am worried that I won’t bring the equipment that I need and wondered if you had maybe a top 3-5 MUST bring equipment list that you would suggest...

D4s C1.01 Firmware Update

There is a firmware update for the D4s that takes care of these updates: When Custom Setting f1 (Multi selector center button) > Playback mode was set to View histograms, the histogram was not displayed correctly for the image played back in the monitor, even when the center button on the multi selector was pressed, when the following conditions were met. This issue has been resolved. Image quality was set to NEF (RAW) + JPEG fine, NEF (RAW) + JPEG normal, or NEF (RAW) + JPEG basic. An option other than “Overview data” or “RGB histogram” was selected for photo information displayed with full-frame image playback. With full-frame image playback with “Highlights” or “RGB histogram” display selected, image chroma (saturation) changed with flashing of highlights. This issue has been resolved. When images captured with Color space set to Adobe RGB were enlarged with playback in the monitor, image chroma (saturation) changed. This issue has been resolved. When Rotate tall in the playback menu was set to On, and an...
