An Expensive Photography Mistake By RJ Styles Landscape Photographer

An Expensive Photography Mistake By RJ Styles Landscape Photographer

The 80mm to 400mm FX AFS zoom lens manufactured by the Nikon Corporation was an Expensive mistake.

When shooting fast moving subjects suck as birds the lenses is autofocus system is slow and often misses sharp focus. It takes a lot of photos just to get a few that are acceptably sharp. Another thing that I do not like about the newer lenses is the focus ring, it appears to not be as fluid or smooth as the older AIS lenses. When I switch the lens to manual focus because the lens’s autofocus is not acquiring sharp focus and this happens often with this lens,  while turning the focus ring it seems to jump in and out of focus as apposed to smoothly reaching sharp focus. Wildlife photography with this lens model can be quite frustrating. I was able to capture some acceptably sharp images. This lens seems to always be searching for sharp focus.

The image is not as sharp as I was hoping for, and the cost of a 300mm prime lens is around $5000.

Photography Tips For Rabbit Photography

How to photograph wild rabbits.

Wild rabbits can be particularly challenging to Photograph. Most of the time rabbits will hop into nearby shrubs. If you shoot at a shutter speed of a 1000 sometimes depends on the lighting you will have to shoot at a higher iso this causes there to be more noise in the image. If you are lucky and the rabbit freezes for a couple of moments then you can capture them at a low iso and a low shutter speed. I like to keep the shutter speed at at least two times the focal length. Like wildlife bird photography fast moving wildlife can be a challenge to capture.

Nerve Racking Horse Polo Match

For the love of Sports Photography
Horse polo photography can be dangerous.

Photographing a Horse Polo match can be a bit nerve racking when the players on their horses are charging full speed towards where you are standing. The horses came within three feet of me, their hooves clacked on the top of the boundary. The boundary was a 2 by 6 board that was painted red anchored onto the grass and that was the only thing separating me from the field. The horses would tire frequently and the players would swap horses every five minutes or so. You could here the horses snorting when they were ready to be swapped out for some rested ones. The Horse Polo players were very skilled players they could hit the ball from far away and send the ball with great precision to other team mates. I love taking sports action photos.
