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
Most of the photography gear that I have and use the most are tools that I have had for a long time. I have chosen these particular tools for a reason. I really like the photographs I am able to create with these tools. It doesn’t mean that there are never times I wish I had other tools available to me.

Today was a tough day. Another dog with a trip to the vet. Another dog with a cancer diagnosis. That is two dogs with two cancer diagnoses in two weeks. Sometimes it just seems like life keeps kicking you. When we got home I just need to do something. I couldn’t just sit at home with my thoughts. I needed action. There was no action I could take to help solve our… Read More
