    Getting it right in camera, or ....

    Ok, got to thinking about this today. I see a lot of folks talking about "getting it right on camera", meaning of course getting the shot to the look as close to the final product as they can with minimal editing. It seems to be a point of pride with many, a goal to which they aspire. I gave...

    Just a few more from the weekend

    A second run at the Aquarium

    Close Encounters.. of the Zoo Kind

    Ok, I had an encounter at the zoo this weekend that I just had to share. The shot is from the Lied Jungle, it's a gibbon. For those of you who aren't familiar with them they are actually members of the ape family, though they are often mistaken for monkeys. That's where my story begins. I had...

    A couple from the zoo trip this weekend

    Testing out the 2x teleconverter: Isabella:

    Sigma 70-200mm F/2.8 with Teleconverters, Nikon Mount

    For sale: Sigma 70-200 mm F/2.8 HSM I for Nikon. Fantastic lens, fast, accurate focus. This is not brand spanking new or pristine by any stretch of the imagination. There is some finish loss on the exterior. However all in all it looks pretty good. The glass itself is in fantastic shape...

    First test run of the new lens

    Well, just aquired a Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8 VR I. Looks like it's going to make an excellent replacement for the Sigma 70-200mm 2.8 HSM I that I was shooting with, the image quality is really oustanding by comparison. Since the first picture I ever took after going digital was a Gorilla, well...
