Fill Flash Wildlife Photography: How to Use it in the Field

Views:733|Rating:5.00|View Time:17:45Minutes|Likes:91|Dislikes:0
Fill-in Flash for Wildlife Photography: How to Use it in the Field. Fill-flash is a great technique for wildlife photography – if you do it right. In this photography tutorial I show you how to use it practically in the field and get balanced exposures. There’s also comparison photos showing with and without flash, so that you can see exactly how it works. This video is rather epic, weighing in at just under 18 minutes… most of my videos barely make 7! Please stick with it: there’s some valuable information in here.!

Filmed with Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500.
Equipment: Canon 1DX Mark i, Canon 400mm f5.6 EF USM lens; Canon Speedlite Flash 580 EXii.

A Videographer’s Guide to Lenses – Focal Length and Field of View

Views:1310|Rating:4.75|View Time:5:Minutes|Likes:77|Dislikes:4
Focal length is a primary characteristic of any lens. Scientifically speaking it is the distance between the optical center of your lens and your sensor, measured in millimeters. Using lenses with different focal lengths can have dramatic effects on your final shot. It alters the angle of view, space compression, and depth of field.

In The Field: Choosing An Aperture For Landscape Photography #260

This week is a Q & A episode. Well, one big question, actually. Alan asked me how I select an aperture for a landscape scene. In particular, when do I choose “partial stop” apertures like f/13 or f/14. Join me In The Field for a chat about aperture, and when I deviate from full stop values.

Nikon 200-500mm f5.6 Wildlife Photography field REVIEW | Bird Photography Tips

Views:77735|Rating:4.58|View Time:19:47Minutes|Likes:850|Dislikes:78
After a few months with a hectic schedule I’m back and today we are talking about the Nikon 200-500mm f5.6!

Over the last few months I’ve had a boat loads of questions about this lens and how it performs out in the field, so I took the opportunity to borrow one for Nikon Professional Services and test it out for the last couple of weeks in-between my other commitments!

The lens certainly performs well for the price, a good compromise between size, wight, performance and cost, giving a great all rounder for wildlife photographers. Paired with a D500 or D850 it’s a flexible option priced very competitively for its performance.

If you require the best of the best the 200-500 still wont out perform the super tele lenses and pro grade optics, but in a way you’d hope it wouldn’t!

If you are on a budget the 200-500 is a great lens and you can pick one up on the links below (Any purchase helps me keep making content but costs you nothing!)

Experiment with one of the most creative tools in the photographers arsenal. Chris Bray introduces the term depth of field which is defined as what is in focus in front of and behind the subject. A shallow depth of field directs a viewers attention to a specific part of a photograph, while a deep depth of field allows everything in the photograph to be in focus.
