Default Arizona Scenics and Wildlife

I've posted two pages with both scenics and wildlife from Arizona, taken at the Grand Canyon, Williams, and Lake Havasu AZ. Click the link below to reach the Index page:

I hope you find these enjoyable...

Default Thanks

There are a bunch of other pages in the Galleries and Portfolios if you feel like wandering around...

Glad you liked them

Thought you had given up photography, hadn't seen you around for awhile.

Default Not quite...

I have been radically busy lately though. I've just posted two pages from the Getty Museum, taken while I was training a photographer in low-light technique. Might be worth a glance if you have some time (it's a truly difficult shoot -- note the exposure times and apertures). They're linked directly off of the Gallery Index:

But I'll bet it helped keep the sun off your face and neck, didn't it?

Default As usual

Excellent work. I found that I could shoot hand held at 1/30 or so with my 35mm because it was bigger and heavier. It's hit and miss with the digital because it's so small and light.

Maybe when I grow up I can get a real camera. Although, I'm tending to lean towards either the 7i or 5700...I hate hauling all those lenes around (provided I could afford them).

A little weight does help stabilize the camera as long as balance is maintained. At some point, too much weight makes it more difficult.

Still, getting a *clean* shot from long exposures is seriously tricky. I got about one shot in three at 1/25 sec. with the 50mm lens. I got 6 bad shots out of 329 with the combination of the 28/1.4 and the 45/2.8 -- granted the 45mm is far better at f/2.8 than the 50mm f/1.4D was. While my technique is likely improved, I think a fair statement would be that a good percentage of the increased yield should be squarely credited to the tools.

That 28/1.4D is a real low-light wonder. Awesome beast.

Way expensive though. It took me a year before I could justify it.

Default You want a low light lens?

Try the Canon 50mm F1.0 lens. (Yes, that is F1.0 - as in just as much light enters the camera as would if there was NO lens) That is a real piece of glass. A friend has one that I have used a few times and it is pretty amazing how dark it can be and still allow you to handhold shots.

You might have some trouble getting that onto your Nikon body though.. :P
