    Choose image size

    I am using a Nikon D500. In my menu there is an option to shot photos at DX = 24x16 or I can choose 1.3x = 18x12. Obviously when I look thru the view finder the 1.3 setting is cropping down. I did say in my original post that this was extending my lens, but I think that it is just cropping...

    Choose image size

    On Nikon cameras there is a setting that lets you extend any lens by choosing an image size of 1.3 of normal. The question is, does this setting lower the sharpness? Does it reduce the pixels on each image?

    Debating selling at Art shows

    I know this has probably been talked about a lot but here goes nothing. What are some thoughts or experiences of getting some of your work printed and doing some art shows? I have some prior experience with my wife who did wood crafts and did pretty well. Is this a cluttered field? I do...

    Finally got some Pics of Owls!!

    As a amateur bird photographer, I have always wanted to get some shots of owls. They are so majestic and hard to find. I have plenty of ducks, geese, swans, eagles and song birds, but never owls.

    PC Suggestions

    So, I have finally got to the point that I am going to look for a new PC for my photography. I use Photoshop/Lightroom and have a separate drive for pic storage. What is everyone using for a PC these days? I know Apple is good for this purpose, but any other ideas?

    Outdoor's on cloudy days

    I am usually out in the marsh with my camera gear looking for waterfowl. I find that on cloudy days, the pics just don't have any pop and even with some editing, they just don't look good to me. Is there something I am missing or should I just wait for those full sunny days? I use PS/LR and...

    Water marks on Pics

    I have never sold anything but friends and family have been asking for me to print some pics for them. Is there a way to put a watermark on a whole group of pics all at once so that is in the same spot on the pic and looks consistent? I do use PS/LR. I could spend hours looking, but this...

    So, I am considering purchasing a 70-200 lens to balance out what I already have. Besides Nikon, has anyone had experience with other companies? I know and trust Nikon products but I also know there are other companies out there making lenses.

    As someone who doesn't get out with his camera's enough, I tend to stay away from rainy weather. What is everyone's take on shooting in wet weather? I know there are some good pics to be taken on these rainy days, but I am always scared of what will happen to my equipment.

    I shoot mostly wildlife, birds in flight. I can see doing some sports stuff as my grandson gets older but wildlife is my love and passion. When I went to this really nice camera store, they had the Nikon and Canon factory reps were there. The Nikon guys listened to me talk about what I was...
