Recently I was on vacation in The Alberta Rockies enjoying the vast mountainous countryside that the area is known for. And what amazing views that can be had there, whether you are a hiker, artist, hippie, travelling the world or just a photographer like me, there is something to see for everyone.
In the photography industry there are special lenses that most photographers won’t bother to use or even try due to their extreme cost. These special lenses are called tilt-shift lenses or in Nikon terms PC-E lenses. They allow you to shift perspectives and/or tilt the focal plane of the lens.
I finally got my hands on the Nikon D850!

Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon in the American Southwest. It is on Navajo land east of Page, Arizona. Antelope Canyon includes two separate, scenic slot canyon sections, referred to individually as “Upper Antelope Canyon” and “Lower Antelope Canyon”.

I had the chance to test the High ISO performance of the Nikon DF in the real world.

I first learned about the 300mm f4 focal length when scouring the internet for reviews of other lenses and came across a photographer’s blog that mentioned a 300mm f4 lens as a great option for a first telephoto prime wildlife lens.
I started watching the local classifieds for a used one and finally settled on a Nikon 300mm f4 Af-s lens! I was very impressed right off the bat but little did I know how valuable this focal length could be! Continue reading “The 300mm F4 prime lens, A great telephoto for all!”
