  • Thank you Rick for sharing some tips that work well for you.  I will definitely give this a try the next time I am able to get out.  Do you think that I should also stop down the aperture to maybe ...
  • Hello buybuybuy, Do I have any regrets about using a non-AF, non-VR lens in a dimly-lit venue?  Absolutely not.  At least not yet.  I have literally gotten to use this lens only ONCE in this venue. ...
  • Absolutely lovely!  I can't wait to be able to see butterflies again.  We've got -30 to -40 below weather where I live....burrr. Warmest Regards, No Regrets
  • Hi Miranda, Thank you for posting to the thread!  The image really pops and is in excellent focus...very well done.  Do you shoot mostly hand held or do you utilize some type of support system, ...
  • This looks great!  Love the coloring of the bird and is plenty sharp. No Regrets
  • Hi Daniel, I'll have to give the "focus stacking" you mentioned a try.  Sounds fun and I would think a person would have a better chance of getting some keepers. Thanks! No Regrets
  • I did not buy this lens specifically to use for this kind of shoot.  I do all kinds of photography from portraits to still life, nature to landscape or architecture , and whatever else that may ...
  • Hi Daniel, I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my photos.  I love having constructive criticism as it helps me learn and grow with this fun hobby. The more thought I give to these ...
  • Hello Hikerdoc, I appreciate your reply.  Does the foot of the monopod make much of a difference....rubber vs steel spike? The 681B looks like a very worthwhile and inexpensive experiment to give a ...
  • Thanks again for your reply.  I do have an older Bogen/Manfrotto tripod with a Manfrotto 3028 Super 3D Pan/Tilt head, but it just seems so cumbersome to carry and use.  I just love walking with my ...
  • Hi Cameron, Thank you for taking the time to reply to my thread. So other than taking the weight off your arms, what good does a monopod do? Is there a general rule of thumb for a ratio of actual ...
  • Thank you for sharing your recommendation and the link.  Looks like a nice device but a little more than what I'd like to spend at the moment. No Regrets
  • Created discussions Monopod questions?
    I recently bought a new Zeiss 135 f/2 APO to use on my Nikon Df. I've been getting some motion blur when trying to shoot handheld. I'm wondering if a monopod would be the answer for me. When ...
  • Thank you for the wonderful tips and for sharing the link as well.  I never would have thought it to be so hard to get good shots handheld.  I've got a lot to learn and your advice is most ...
  • Thank you for sharing the links with me!  I'll definitely be getting a monopod soon and give it a try.  If I can't get my jean pocket to work, I'll try one of those gadget holster's you linked to. ...
  • Extremely cold day today, so wasn't out for more than a few minutes.  Taken hand held.
  • Nice set of images here Mark.  They are all nice, but I love your creativity with using the headlights of the pickup truck and the composition of the lake scene the best. No Regrets
  • Hi, I just recently started shopping for a monopod.  There are so many different kinds out there. Should I be looking for aluminum or carbon?  Spike or rubber bottom?  How many section and how much ...
  • Hi Daniel, I appreciate the constructive criticism! I will give that a try the next time out shooting in the jazz clubs. Looking forward to seeing some samples from you as well! I got out only for ...
  • Thanks Roy!  I had a blast shooting these guys.
