If you are transitioning to a Fuji X-mount camera system, there may be times when you want to use your existing glass. For this, you need to get a lens mount adapter.
While a lens mount adapter lets you use your Nikon (or Canon) lenses with the Fuji X-mount bodies, there are some major limitations. You will have to use manual focus and set the aperture using a ring on the adapter barrel. Vibration reduction (VR) will not function, either. In my opinion, the reason you get one of these adapters is because you have a particular use for one of your existing lenses. In my case, I like to be able to combine my infrared-converted Fujifilm X-E1 body with my Nikon glass when traveling so that I don’t need to pack two sets of lenses. I have two adapters that I have tested with my Nikon lenses. Continue reading Review: Metabones Speed Booster Nikon F to Fuji X-Mount Adapter→

I first set foot in the South Dakota Badlands in 2005, when I went there on a Nikonians photo safari. My intent at the time was to capture dramatic landscape photographs. In 2011, I returned to this enlightening place as a full-time professional photographer
Part of growing as a photographer is seeing your subjects in new ways. In this presentation I show how focusing on specific elements like light, color and textures, and using creative techniques like infrared and HDR enable me to capture the beauty of this majestic landscape in new ways every year.
Bird photography is probably one of the most challenging activities for a nature photographer to tackle. I started out like most people, trying to take a photo of a bird in a tree with a short (200mm) telephoto lens. When I look at my old photos, I sometimes have to squint to see the bird in them! Now I’m very happy with my bird photography, and as you’ll see it takes skill, patience, and a little bit of luck to really get a dynamic bird photo. I recently presented a live online webinar on bird photography, during which I shared some of my favorite photos and shared camera settings and tips on gear and processing. If you have some free time, I hope you can check it out.
