PSW ’19 Vegas Precon – Sunrise

And what do you see when you’re out in the Vegas desert at 05:20? You don’t see the sun yet but you do see it light up the dust in the air. Setting the WB on the Z6 / ZZ24-70f2.8 to 9000k, it was a relative simple click to make. The only challenge? Wait for all the vehicle traffic coming up the road. You thought it was a B&W class, well it was but B&W doesn’t do justice to that color....

PSW ’19 Vegas Precon – Yeah Baby!!!!

It was simply, a wonderful day in the neighborhood! I had all of my PSW ’19 Precon attendees up in the classroom at, wait for it, 04:00 and then on the bus to see the sun come up in the desert. And of course, they had their cameras in tow. You might be wondering if we were out shooting at sunrise, why I’m posting to photographs of this sweet, gorgeous ladies who accompanied us and not pictures of rocks.

Then with the Z6 / 105f1.4, the SB-5000 inside a Impact Hexi 24 Softbox on a pole overhead and just out of frame, I used the Z6 flash magic. Polarizer on the...

3 Minute Griz Encounter- a Vid

Last week I had the great fortune to be on a lonely beach with my dear friend, human, and critter. Coastal Grizzly Bears are such a fascinating critter with a very complex yet simple life. When you happen to spend any time with a Griz, it will change not only how you perceive this magnificent creature, but your own world. But when you can spend time with a Mom & cubs, you’re in for education AND entertainment. It’s that world I want to introduce you too in this simple, brief video. The video was shot by Sharon using the Z7 / Z14-30 with the last “happy dance” captured by Javier on his iPhone. Video of the bear behavior was shot by me with the Z6 / 180-400VR as well as the...
