Photo Of The Week

Today's photo of the week is title "Ancient Red Skyscrapers" and was taken by Audrey Cramer with Cramer Imaging.  

Here is what Audrey had to say about her photo: "This area is part of the northern most section of Bryce Canyon National Park. It's not part of the park proper but it is part of the hike into theMossy Cave section of the park. The hoodoos, which this park is famous for, extend this far north in the park. This photo was shot on a Nikon D7200 with an 18-55mm lens. It was at f/5.6 and 1/200 sec on ISO 100."

4 Tips For Better Fall Photography

The fall is such a beautiful time of year and the perfect time to get outside and capture amazing fall landscape shots. If you love grabbing your camera and heading outdoors into the cool, crisp fall air to see what type of photographs you can capture, here are a few tips for better fall photography that we think will be helpful to you. 

1. Scout your location close to the day you plan to shoot.

During the fall, the colors change quickly, so you want to make sure if you are out scouting for the best place to photograph, that you do it pretty close to the day you plan to shoot. If you found a location you love and the colors are bright with the changing leaves and you are not going to be back for another two weeks for the final shoot, chances are the leaves will have fallen or look much different when you come back.

2. Look for beautiful color combinations. 

During the fall months, there are beautiful colors everywhere! To capture the beauty that is the autumn months, you want to make sure you find those deep hues of reds, orange and yellows so you can photograph the season in all its colors. Pairing those colors with the bright blue sky or a gorgeous sunrise or sunset can be stunning. 

3. Try and take some photos from a higher elevation. 

During the fall, the treetops can look magnificent in its various colors, but is pretty tough to capture from the ground. If you can get higher, you may be amazed at what photos you take. Stand up high on a stump, move closer towards the top of a mountain or hill, or take a photo from out the window of a two-story building to find a different angle that can be spectacular.

4. Look for water. 

The reflection you can get with water during the fall is great and can make for awesome photos if done correctly. Find a lake, stream or any body of water that is surrounded by the fall foliage can be perfect. Water can give reflections, contrasts and texture (with long exposures).

No matter what type of season, weather or lighting condition, these actions are perfect! You can get this entire bundle for only $19.99 (a $199.99 value)!

Is The New Nikon D850 Right For You?

You have probably heard that the Nikon has a new full frame DSLR. The Nikon D850 is out and is going to be Nikon's flagship camera moving forward. 

This camera has just about everything you could want from a full-frame DSLR. It has a hefty 45.7-megapixel CMOS sensor that’s back-side illuminated — a first for any of Nikon’s full-frame cameras. That should make the D850 handle low light situations pretty well despite the high megapixel count, which usually limits low light quality. Nikon has also included its top-line Expeed 5 image processor.

They also did not including a low pass filter on the D850 - which is a major trend in digital cameras today.  

But the camera is also relatively fast on the stills side when you consider the size of the files it’s dealing with. It has the same robust 153-point (99 cross type) autofocus system used in the D5, and can shoot 7 frames per second at full, 45.7-megapixel resolution. (If you buy the $399 battery grip, that max speed bumps up to 9 fps.) That’s with a 51-image buffer for 14-bit lossless RAW files, or 170 images shooting at 12-bit.

Here are a few other features about the Nikdon D850 you are sure to love!

Video Capabilities - The Nikon D850 shoots 4K UHD footage at 30 or 24 frames per second, and 1080p video at up to 120 fps. It can record uncompressed 4:2:2 8-bit 4K UHD footage to an external recorder over the HDMI port while recording locally to a card at the same time. There’s an 8K time-lapse video mode, too, which is double the resolution that’s typically found on DSLRs these days.

Silent Shooting Option - This lets users shoot up to 6 fps at full resolution (or up to 30 fps at 8.6-megapixels). This is done through the camera’s Live View mode, where the mirror stays up out of the way, and so the limitation here is that the camera’s exposure and focus will be locked from the first frame forward. But in the right setting this could be a big help, and it helps (slightly) make up for one of the biggest current shortcomings of DSLRs when compared to mirrorless cameras.

Memory Card - The D850 has two memory card slots — one XQD and one SD — to help capture all that data. 

Battery - The battery will last for about 1,800 shots (or 70 minutes of video).

Touchscreen - On the back is a fairly standard 3.2-inch tilting touchscreen, which is surrounded by illuminated buttons. It has a big viewfinder with 0.75x magnification, the highest ever in a Nikon DSLR, according to the company.

Other Features - Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Snapbridge (the company’s solution for maintaining a constant connection to your smartphone) are all included as well.

Photo Of The Week

Today's photo of the week is of a water droplet falling into water that was taken by Brandon Smith

Here is a description of the photo from Brandon: "This was shot with a high shutter speed to capture the droplet in the water. Due to the high shutter speed and strobes only allowing a max speed of 1/250ith of a second, I used constant lights. I set up with blue gelled lights pointing at the plastic container with the water. In addition to lighting from the sides, I also lit the scene from below using a table light. Blue food colouring was added because I was not quite happy with the colour. I placed a nail in the water where I was going to have the water droplet fall and set for manual focus. The shot took a total of about 4 hours to capture. This was shot with the Nikon D800 and the Sigma Art Series 50mm Lens."
