Nikon has posted the D6 brochure. This is what really tells me a lot about the camera and helps me better understand where a tool is going and meant to do. I understand how many look at specs and make judgment calls based only on them. Me, I’m all about the photos and not the specs. The most important aspect of the camera to me is the file it produces. I know what the D5 produces and has produced for my clients. To be frank, it’s made me one helluva lot of money. I am more than confident that the D6 in this one regard only will excel beyond the D5. The rest to be totally honest with you, is on the photographer, not the camera. You have more questions about the D6, call the experts and my friends at Bedford...Read More
I’ll be right upfront with you, I thought this latest social trend was kinda, another social media, thing. Then I had a conversation with a couple of other shooters who knew about it but hadn’t acted on it. It’s from that conversation that I have come to understand that what started out as a social media thing can become a way for the photographic community to celebrate being photographers and the work we do. There will be a big variety of photographs, a big community of photographers we all could come to know and celebrate. That’s why I’m posting this, my photograph of Old Faithful (Z7 / Z24-70f2.8) and me standing before it (taken by the very talented Richard DeDalto). I want to encourage you to do the same and make sure you use the hashtag #theshottheshooter so we can all see your SHOT and get to know the...Read More
Nikon has released two new S Series lenses for the Z, the Z20f1.8 and Z24-200. I have to admit, that Z24-200 is really intriguing! Nikon writes … With the addition of the versatile, lightweight NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR and the ultra-wide NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S, Nikon continues to demonstrate the superior optical capabilities of its NIKKOR Z lenses, made possible by the advanced technology of the revolutionary Z mount. The NIKKOR Z 24-200mm f/4-6.3 VR boasts a broad 24-200mm zoom range with the power and versatility to make it a staple for travel and everyday photography. Meanwhile, the NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S expands the f/1.8 line of NIKKOR Z lenses, offering an extremely fast aperture and a vast field of view, ideal for enthusiasts and pros shooting landscapes, architecture or the night sky.

09-14 Jan, 2021 Washington Stormy Coast Big waves, rugged coastline and a lighthouse on the bluffs, about as romantic a photograph you can conjure up! The trip is in the middle of winter to take advantage of the giant waves that occur along the entire coastline. From rocky cliffs, long beaches and lighthouses, we’ll chase those monster waves and the drama they bring. Cape Disappointment is our main focus for capturing those giant waves and iconic views! We will start and end in Portland and I’ll be taking just six hearty shooters (2 spots left) along on this probable wet adventure. The price is $1950 (half do at the time of registration) which includes transportation once you land until you take off again, lots of instruction including lighting a lighthouse, long exposures & B&W, laughs and perhaps a hot cup of Joe once or twice. We’d love to have you join us! Give Sharon a call 760.924.8632 (9-5PST M-F) and she’d be happy to get you signed up for...Read More
In this episode “Editorial Arrangement”
How do we arrange the elements in a photograph to tell our story and reach others? Composition befuddles photographers and at times, prevents the photographic process rather than nurture it. There are those who can help you help yourself.
I’m so excited and honored to present my latest KelbyOne Class to you, the Photograph an Airshow Like a Pro! This class comes from requests of the KelbyOne Community (thanks!) and one I was really happy to do. And don’t miss my other new class which is for all wildlife photographers no matter if you’re wanting to get started or have been doing it for decades. I packed this course Science Behind Wildlife Photography! with more “trivia” which you might call science than a dozen critter textbooks. My goal is two-fold, protect the welfare of the critter while helping you get the best photo you can every time you venture out. I hope you enjoy it and learns lots from it. And for all you KelbyOne members, be sure to check out the Members Webcast we did with my top ten locales for photographing...Read More
