New Life

Sunday morning was simply, amazing! I was back in FL for the weekend and it found me at the Black Skimmer colony. New life is everywhere and watching it, hearing it and witnessing it is one of the great joys of wildlife photography. And the joys of wildlife photography continued when it was shared with so many other shooters. My dear friend Kathy and gang (Mike, Tony, Leslie and the rest of you) make me smile. Not just the kind words and open arms, but all the smiles you have as you too chase the critters with your lenses. There were 70-200, 80-400, 200-400, 600 and of course the 800 all trained on the adorable chicks peaking out at the big bad world for the first time. The whole experience for me simply brings to wildlife photography, new...

Story Behind the BTS Time Lapse

It started as just an article, it then evolved into a series of articles and now it’s an upcoming book. The book is all about pilots across the country who do more than just fly. These pilots are all about preserving, sharing and living the dream of flight while preserving our heritage of flight. The BTS time lapse I posted earlier (seen below) was from one of these shoots this last weekend in Wichita, KS. What you see above is the photo (prototype of the new Cessna 750+) after I kicked the pilot out of it because, well, it was cool without him (yes, I’m brutal but said it with a smile). The book is more than a collection of portraits. There will be a whole bunch of sexy plane photos along with the text further telling the pilot’s story. It will also have a section on how the photos were made. I travel the county doing these on my own and the gear I have (listed below) makes...

D810 Announced!

Yeap, the D810 and before you think it’s just an upgrade, think again. I’ve seen the comparison charts and I can tell you that they don’t EVEN come close to really speaking what the upgrade really means. And here’s the shocker for you, I think so much of what I’ve been told about the D810 (preorder link) that I have already ordered one. That’s right, the guy who wasn’t a D800 fan has one on order. That’s because it for no other reason, the video portion of the D810 is to die for. I don’t have one in my my hands but as soon as I do, well you know the drill More D810 goodness is...

GearHead Wednesday 14 – 24

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. My apologies, but it’s a little short this week because so many of the questions were repeats of ones already answered here. I simply don’t have the time to repost already answered questions. 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 …. Hi Moose, I just saw your video on tripod maintenance and it was very informative. I saw that you have a Gitzo carbon fiber tripod and it has knuckles (g-locks) to lock the leg sections in place. I have a Giotto carbon fiber which also has knuckle leg section locks. The problem I have is that the locks are very hard to turn...
