Is the Nikkor 50mm/1.2 any good?

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 09:41:44 +0100

(image) I hope 2018 started off well for you. Snow sprinkles the fields outside my window while I am writing this years first newsletter here at the northern camp with temperatures a few degrees below zero C. The wind that made itself heard last night is resting its muscles and some black birds are fighting for top positions in a large tree nearby.

Early-bird discount on 18th ANPAT Spring

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 14:09:58 +0100

(image) Now is a good idea to include the 18th ANPAT in the Spring on your shopping list, taking advantage of the early bird discount. More information (login required)




What is that "something" we take photographs of?

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 11:03:06 +0100

(image) There is always something happening in the world of Nikonians. This week we have rolled out further improvements in the community: (1) it is now easier to see articles related to a specific topic (aka keyword/theme) (see this post) and (2) we are now showing small "overview thumbnails" of images linked into a discussion as well, not only for those that are uploaded.




How do you work with other people?

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 10:22:10 +0100

Welcome to this weeks newsletter.

A new episode of Martin Turner's "Shooting the $2million image" premium article series is available. Martin discusses the "human factor" and how vital this is for successful professional photographers. He adds "One survey across many industries suggested that technical skills only accounted for around 20% of career success. The other 80% ? Ability to work with people." Read the article




Are you a beta user?

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 10:18:50 +0100

(image) It is snowing this morning at my "southern" basecamp and I am looking forward to get out this afternoon hoping for some animals against the white backdrop.

The "motivation thread" from last week got some very good input. If you haven't read that yet, I suggest you do that. See the discussion on motivation




How to stay motivated?

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 09:18:43 +0100

(image) Back to my southern basecamp looking through members images in our "Master your vision" galleries, something I seriously enjoy doing since it gives me a lot of good inspiration. I encourage you to do the same :)

Our Master your vision galleries contain a total of 18 main categories with everything from Astro, Glamour and Landscape to Travel, Underwater and Wildlife photography.




We have improvements for you

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 09:37:15 +0100

(image) Thanks to additional traveling this week, I am keeping this one "short and sweet".

We have some new articles that are due out next week, including another Mastering the Art of Photography, please stay tuned. If you still have not read the first three you might want to do that.




Is incorrect focus a deadly sin?

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 07:01:05 +0100

(image) Hope your photography is doing well, no matter outside temperatures and the weather conditions that you might experience at your location. I am packing up at my nordic getaway heading "down south" to continental Europe this week and expect some good shooting opportunities along the way. We have lovely foggy mornings with plenty of roe deer and the odd moose out browsing and I will for sure keep some of Ramón's (jrp) "photography sins" in mind while shooting.




Mastering photography (technique) vs. art

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 10:18:44 +0100

(image) Writing this week from my nordic getaway, pretty much smack on the 60th north latitude. I am heading out to the Baltic coast today for some landscape and bird shooting and reminded myself to pack enough rain covers and cleaning cloths for the gear.




Any reason going manual focus?

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 10:30:29 +0100

(image) Is there really any reason for going manual focus when our autofocus (AF) systems are just getting better and better?

Yes, maybe there is. In this weeks newsletter I am shortly looking into one good reason.
