One of my favorite expressions is a "sea change" moment. Even Miriam Webster's entry for sea change is highly evocative: "Archaic. A change brought about by the sea." You can imagine a time in the past when the ocean represented the ultimate unknown. To watch the sea, of all things, change, would be grand and terrifying.
Being at the top of the food chain doesn't mean you've got it all figured out. Sure, it's nice to slither through the woods, swim in the water, or lurk in a burrow, knowing that nothing can eat you. But like everything else in this world, being a predator has its bugs. Literally.
The first serious lens that I ever bought as a photographer was one of Nikon’s 105mm macro lenses. It might as well have been glued to my camera. Landscapes, cityscapes, and of course macro photos – 105mm was my go-to focal length for everything. Even though I’ve moved on from those days, it’s safe to say that 105mm macro lenses remain close to my heart....
Light is the most important part of photography, period. The nature of the light you capture has a fundamental impact on how your photo turns out. Good light can make a photo portfolio-worthy, while poor light can ruin even the most careful composition. But what makes light good in the first place? In this article, I’ll discuss the qualities of natural...

Do you know what country it is I’m talking about? Here’s another hint – it has both one of the wettest places on earth with an annual rainfall over 10 meters, and...

Not long ago, the range of telephoto lenses across brands was boringly uniform. Regardless of camera brand, you had the option to choose between a few classics like the 300 and 400mm with a maximum aperture of f/2.8, and the 500 or 600mm with f/4. But today, the situation is very different. A whole range of interesting telephoto lenses have appeared,...
The Nikon 500mm f/5.6E PF VR is one of the most popular lenses for wildlife photography among Nikon photographers. It's also my primary telephoto lens, and I've used it for more than four years of rigorous field work. Today, I'm reviewing the 500mm f/5.6 PF and sharing my full experience.
Last week, I told you my resolution for 2023: to try new things. So, last night I went into the pitch-black woods with my camera, tripod, flash, and headlamp. The forest at night is a magical place and my photo hopefully proves it. That said, I’m glad that no one saw me when I was taking the picture. A guy running around a bunch of trees with a red...
