Pre-order New Nikon Now!

Click on Links below to order now! Yep, you can pre-order the new Nikon gear introduced today. I’ve already contacted B&H Photo and ordered my D5 with the XQD option. Why that over the D5 – CF option? For me it’s real simple, XQD is so much FASTER and if you’re going to shoot that 12FPS with 200 frame buffer, speed is everything. I can’t wait for the first time I fill them Lexar XQD 128GB 2933x at that speed. My heart shutters just thinking about it! And what about the D500? Yep, went and ordered one of them too! Why did a I order a DX body you might be asking? Well, for a very specific new project where a small, light, super high quality video camera will be perfect. The D500 couldn’t come at a better time for me. And what about the new SB-5000 speedlight? Well of course, it has to go in the bag as well. Moving away from the infrared to a wireless signal...

Just Love Their Spirit!

One of the great joys of our work is working with kids. It has always been a priority with Sharon and I because it always puts a smile in our heart. Sometimes it’s hands on, sometimes answering email questions for a class project, and at times, it’s is as simple as this. My name is Rachel and I volunteer at a youth center in Toronto with a activities program for kids where we are learning about wildlife photography this winter. The kids came across your website http://www.moosepeterson.com/blog/category/photography/wildlife-photography/ while looking for information about wildlife photographers. We want to say thank you for the great information and beautiful photographs you have! Two of the girls, Kathleen and Stephanie, did some web searches at home together and found this page that they brought for me to see. It is a beginners guide to wildlife photography. hhttp://www.cctvcameraworld.com/beginners-guide-to-wildlife-photography.html I suggested that they share this with you because it is such a great guide for kids and other beginners! Additionally, I want to impress upon...

Trying to Get it for 20yrs

For a long time I’ve wanted my own, cool shot of a White-breasted Nuthatch and no matter how I’ve tried, no luck. I keep coming up short. This is in part because they just don’t hold still! You can’t bribe them to come to the same spot over and over again. You gotta watch them land at the top of a tree, work their way down the trunk to the food source, never taking the same path twice, and hope you get in a click. Only if there is an avian predator might they hold still for a moment. So, I’ve been on my deck since the first snow fall again trying to get the shot. I’m standing out there with my 300PF and using the snow as a reflector. And this this weekend, I finally got one photo good enough to post. It’s a start, but I’ll be back out there working on...
