The Nikon 50mm lens I use has the potential to be a versatile lens. A photographer could create a lot of different types of photography with this lens. The lens has a lot of potential. I can’t recall exactly why I decided to add this piece of equipment to my camera bag. If I had to guess I would imagine it was due to the fact that the lens has an f-stop… Read More

Wide angle lenses are generally used for landscape photography. The wide angle lens that I use is a lens by Tamron. If you look in my camera bag you will see a Tamron 18-200 mm zoom lens. The Tamron 18-200mm The fact that the lens can zoom from 18 mm all the way to 200 mm creates a wide range of options for using this particular lens. But for me personally in… Read More

Last time I talked about how I use the Nikon 300mm lens in my photography. (Photo Gear | 300mm | New York) While I love using the long lens to photograph wildlife from a distance. This time around I am going to swing to the opposite end of the spectrum. I want to talk about how I get close up and personal with subjects. Some of my favorite Subjects are flowers and… Read More

One of the tools I use most often is my Nikon 300mm lens. I have had this model so long I don’t think Nikon makes it anymore. It doesn’t appear on their website. I am in no hurry to “upgrade” to the new model of the same 300mm lens because the lens I have does everything I ask of it and then some. Why I Use A Nikon 300mm Lens. The most… Read More

Most… Read More

After a day of driving around visiting multiple sites we wanted to spend the entire day all at one place. We decided to spend the day at Taughannock Falls State Park. If you are not familiar with Taughannock Falls State Park its most well-known feature is its namesake, Taughannock Falls which plunges 215 feet past rocky cliffs that tower nearly 400 feet above the gorge.

After a couple day’s worth of long drives we decided to try and stay closer to home. But, I still wanted to see some new sights. I thought I knew just how to make that happen.  First up was Stony Brook State Park. I had been there once before, but the trail leading to the waterfall was closed at that time. I wanted to go back and get a good view of… Read More

My photography tends to vacillate greatly between very planned photography where I have a subject and location that I will be photographing to basically what I would call adventure photography. Adventure photography is more like I get out in nature and enjoy myself and photograph whatever strikes me creatively or inspires me. Maybe I am exploring a new place and I want to be open to all possibilities. One thing I try… Read More

As and artists and creative person it is very easy to fall into the trap of thinking of photography as something that has to be very intentional and planned out. I am a photographer.

Great opportunities for… Read More
