    upgrade question

    Thanks for the feedback. I had thought of the D7500 as it goes to higher iso. I was thinking that the d500 and the D750 are close in price so I would go for one of the two as the D500 would be the best option if I stick with a crop body. As for the glass, I do have the 35 and 50mm 1.8's. I...

    upgrade question

    Hi all, I am looking for some advice on a new camera. I am currently shooting with a D7100 and am thinking about upgrading. I would like something that handles low light/high iso better. I mostly shoot family pictures, my kid's sports (highschool football, volleyball) and some landscapes and...

    Images in water drops

    Thank you. I was trying to think of things that might work and my empty can was just sitting there. I guess you can find interesting shots with seemingly simple objects.

    Images in water drops

    I decided to try and get an image of something in a water drop. 1. The first one I was able to capture an image of my daughter and two of her friends. They are not totally clear, but I was off to a decent start. 2. On this one, I had taken away the picture of my daughter and just had a red...

    70-200 f/4 VR First Impressions

    I have that lens as well and it is quite impressive. I have not used the 70-200 f2.8 so I can't comment on it compared to that, but I love mine. Although if anyone wants to send me the f2.8 so I can compare them, I would be happy to!

    Water drop photography

    The second one is great. I've tried water drops a couple times and managed to get a few that I liked. Although I took 100-200 each time to get the ones that worked just right. It is definitely a task that requires patience. Thanks for sharing.

    D500 first time to the hockey rink

    Those are great. Good job capturing the action.

    That would be a huge pain for any business to get through. More so in your case as you have patients depending on you. At least no one was hurt. I heard on the news that the police were investigating the cause of the fire. Have you heard anything more about it?

    Oil & Water

    Thank you all for the kind words. I think this is what I like best about photography. You can take a photo of something normal and mundane and end up with something that looks interesting. Of course, while doing this I looked a little strange to my family as I sat on the kitchen floor with my...

    Oil & Water

    I decided to try getting some shots of oil & water with my 105 macro lens. I put the water in a glass pan and put a piece of colorful fabric below to add color (for the pink one). for the blue and green, I added food coloring to the water. What do you think? Any c & c? 1. 2. 3.

    I've found the videos from Adorama tv on youtube to be good. Specifically the ones from Mark Wallace and Gavin Hoey. Here's a link to the youtube channel. Adorama

    Motocross under the lights with the D500

    Nice shots. That one at 25600 looks good for such a high iso.

    Some action shots from the race

    Nice set. I'm guessing from the looks of them that those GTR's would have been really quick.

    Tried a little drag racing

    Good shots. The panning is quite good in number 1, although I would try to leave more space ahead of the car rather than behind it. Also, I particularly like number 4. The black and white processing is good and I like how you can see the tires just starting to spin. Thanks for sharing

    Nikon 105mm Macro vs Tokina 100mm Macro

    I have the D7100 and the Nikon 105. It is a great combination. So far, I have only used it for macro and have not tried portraits with it. The autofocus is quite good and it is sharp. Really sharp.
