    SOLD! Nikon 70-200 f/4 VR

    So as you can tell, I made my decision. I'm switching to Fuji. I took a few days to reflect on this decision before I did anything and even did some shooting and I'm just no longer having fun with my DSLR kit. So it is what it is. I'm ready for a new challenge. A change. Whatever you want to...

    Oak Leaf Reflection

    I am so proud of my self for taking this shot. I've been planning this shot for a long time and I finally nailed it! I've been wanting to get a shot of a oak leaf in a puddle with its reflection. But I could never for the life of me find an oak leaf. But I did today and there was a puddle so I...

    Red & Green

    So I have honestly no idea what I was going for here but I saw a green apple in the fridge and there was this bright red serving platter on the counter and for some reason it just clicked in my head. Now I was strapped for time as I had somewheres to be and I was losing window light fast so I...

    Finally, it looks like Vermont

    After a good dumping of snow covering all the trees and ground, it made this red barn stand out better than I ever seen it before. So I've taken many, perhaps nearly 100 shots of this barn over several years. I didn't know at the time but apparently I unconsciously started a photo project. I...

    Finally, a Monarch

    For years now I've been wanting to get a picture of a Monarch butterfly and while visiting the Hampton Beach in NH yesterday, I saw one drinking some nectar from these large red clovers on the boardwalk (or cement walk) and he stayed there for a while so I was able to whip out my 70-200 and get...

    A bit frosty this morning!

    Autumn is here...

    I may not be looking toward the white stuff that always seems to fall after this season but I can't deny the beauty that the autumn season has. Nikon D610 + 70-200 f/4 VR @ 200mm 1/500th, f/5.6, ISO 360

    Mt. Washington Landscape

    This has to be by far my favorite landscape photo I have taken to date. I love this photo so much that I'm going to get it printed and I have some friends who are interested in a print of this photo as well. So I must've did something right haha. This might just be the picture of the year for...

    Just another landscape shot I did on top of Mount Washington. This time I used my 70-200 to compress the background to pull the distant mountains closer. It's simple and I like it. For me it feels very calming. Nikon D610 + 70-200 f/4 VR 200mm, f/8, 1/400th, ISO 100

    It's a Mushroom

    I was mowing the lawn when I saw these mushrooms just chilling out and so I stopped mowing, ran inside and grabbed my camera and took this shot! You just never know when a photo opportunity is going to happen. I guess we always have to be prepared haha. Then...well...the mushrooms went bye bye...

    First Butterfly!

    For so many years I've wanting to get a picture of a Monarch butterfly and as I was working outside on my driveway (fixing drainage) I saw one land and he was just chilling there, wasn't afraid of me. So I ran inside grabbed my camera but first put my tele on and ran back outside and laid on the...

    Golden hour can make all the difference sometimes. It isn't my favorite photo I ever taken but interestingly, it became one of my most "liked" photos on Instagram, just on it's own. Nikon D610 + 70-200 f/4 VR 190mm, 1/500th, f/5.6, ISO 220 Gold by Nicholas Erwin, on Flickr

    Rain isn't going to stop this chipmunk!

    I was out taking photos in the rain yesterday and saw a family of chipmunks eating seed I accidently dropped all over the place haha. But this one in particular didn't care I was really close to him taking photos, he just sat there eating seed. Nikon D610 + 70-200 f/4 VR 1/125th, f/5, ISO 800...

    Who dat? - Chipmunk

    I'm surprised this chipmunk stuck around long enough to let me take his picture. Well, I kind of left some seed on the steps that he's been hanging around lately. I like this picture, thought I'd share it. Nikon D610 + 70-200 f/4 VR @ 200mm, 1/1000th, f/5 & ISO 280

    Spring Flowers

    It's about time! Grass is finally turning green, trees have buds on them and flowers are blooming. I'll be honest...I bought these in a store. (these are real by the way.) Nikon D610 + 70-200 f/4 VR @ 200mm, 1/2500th, f/5.6 & ISO 400.

    The Teleconverter Dilemma

    Now that I finally own the 70-200 f/4 VR, its time to decide on which teleconverter to buy. Just a little disclaimer, I understand that teleconverters won't give me the same image quality like the 200-500 5.6 or the Sigma 150-600 lenses would. I don't shoot that range all that often, so I...

    70-200 f/4 VR First Impressions

    So I only had this lens for a day but I wanted to make a first impression post before the effect wears off. The lens exceeds every expectation I had for it. When I took it out of the box I was really surprised by how compact and light it actually is. I've looked at photos and videos online...
