You love your point & shoot digital camera but now you yearn for something more. A camera that offers more versatility and interchangeable lenses. A camera that lets you get closer to wildlife than the zoom on your small digital.
Perhaps you want to shoot birds — with a camera, not a gun.
Be forewarned, if you want to get into photographing wildlife, especially birds, you must have have a LONG lens. The very minimum focal length would be a 300mm with a 1.4x tele converter. I have used that with some success in photographing birds.
When I was first starting out as a photographer I was on a nice drive with the ex and children. I really wanted to photograph the great blue herons we saw in the fields outside Davis, Calif. But every time we got even a little close to the birds they would hop/fly off just out of range of my wimpy 200mm lens. Read more »

The Future of Photography – Since its birth and for around 100 years, photography hasn’t really changed that much if you think about it. You had a box with a lens attached which streams light in and records it onto a film plane and now onto a digital sensor.
In Ye Olde days of film cameras, the only things that changed with regards to technology were the lens quality and the mechanics of the camera itself, the shutter, the exposure system, the speed etc, the recording media (film or emulsion) hasn’t really changed too much over time, especially towards the end, not when you compare it to digital and its rapid advances.

Amateur Wedding Photography Tips – Since I have been using the internet over the past 4-5 years, I have come across many photography sites, some quite excellent and some that are quite honestly abysmal. The danger with the internet is that when a “photographer” with a newly built website, is possibly someone who has just taken up photography, bought themselves an overly expensive and professional camera and then maybe stumbled across a great photo or two! They then learn how to do a few tricks or manipulations with editing software such as Photoshop and “Da-Naa” they are a professional photographer. Read more »

Animals come in all shapes and sizes from rodents like mice to large mammals like elephants. Animals can make very eye catching subjects to photograph whether wild or domesticated. However there is a distinct difference between a wild animal and a domesticated one. This will dictate how the subject will be approached. Read more »

Children can be captured on film successfully in many different circumstances and locations. For most children, getting their photograph taken is fun and they will perform for the photographer. This in turn brings their personality to life on film.
There are a few simple steps to successful child photography besides the usual photographic skills.
Take the photograph from the child’s level. Avoid standing toweringly over a child when taking their photograph; keep the camera at about eye level of the child. Read more »
