Shots From the Road

Photographing Santa Fe & Taos

I’ve been down in New Mexico since Wednesday, leading a travel photography workshop with my Image Doctors podcast co-host, Rick Walker. We’ve had a great group of clients who are very enthusiastic about photography and learning new ways to approach subjects for their travelogues. Here’s some photos I’ve captured along the way…

Pikes Peak Regional Air Show (Pics)

I had a great time photographing the aerial performers at the Pikes Peak Regional Air Show in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I used my Nikon Z9 and 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 Nikkor Z lens for all of these shots. Be sure to tune in to this week’s episode of The Image Doctors podcast to hear about my gear and settings, and a little bit about how I processed these images. Click on an image to enlarge it.

I spent most of last week in San Diego, leading my annual Southern California birding & wildlife workshop. It was my first real test of the new Nikon Z9 and Nikon 100-400mm S lens. The camera and lens combo performed flawlessly, tracking the fast-moving royal terns along the coast as they circled the rocky shore, looking for a landing spot.

POTD: Broken Bat

I went to a Colorado Rockies game over the weekend, and brought my new Nikon Z fc with 16-50mm kit lens. I set the camera to 1/2000s (shutter priority) and auto ISO, and focused manually. The camera’s fast frame rate (about 9fps in 14-bit RAW) allowed me to capture the moment Charlie Blackmon’s bat broke in half.
