The Wood Duck and the Green Heron with crazy hair are my favorites. They are all great shots!

wow those are amazing captures. You are an inspiration to a whole lot of my friends who are always ready to buy big items but i hold them back saying, fine tune your technique. Some i am sure came from the Nikon and its fantastic.

I am back in the forum after long and i was sad to see minimal activity. this is where it all begun for me and i hope there is more life in this forum. I knew NHL would be active here


great shots

Hi there! - Long time no see indeed...
I still shoot Canon once in awhile: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/wi...-041414-a.html
-> I got a Sigmonster on that set-up so it's a bit unwieldy on a kayak

I tend to agree with you as photography is all about capturing the light, so it's all in controlling this illumination, and not so much about camera equipments.
I tend to post more on the people thread now with various indoor/outdoor lighting techniques: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pe...now-white.html

Welcome back and hope to see you more over here!

I like this forum and i had basically stopped taking pictures for a long time. But i am back with a Sony now and got some niche old lenses like the canon 0.95, takumars and rokkors.

Gone fully manual and in fact trying my hands out on an old canon 7 rangefinder with film.

Just makes you realize how easy fotography has become with the new age equipments.

My first roll is still getting processed and i have NO clue how the pictures are going to be. If they are half as what i am expecting, i want to try some fun time with film and learn more about lighting.

Sigmonster is HUGE man. I am sure you are carrying more weight than your own weight in your kayaks.

Here is one from the 0.95

Nice, it all flow naturally with you... Love the B/W treatment

I shoot with a Sony A900 too. I just love the way its mechanical shutter sounds. Most people I shoot with thought it was a film camera!

Thanks NHL. The first film had 4 rightly exposed images. But the prints brings back those classic images we have from ages.

Did you travel to India after the last trip years back
