"And with the right lens, such as the DA 15mm Limited used here, you can shoot directly into the sun for some dramatic effects. If you want to see more Pentax shots, Google Ron Kruger and click on any link to Photoshelter."
"I really had no choice about my website name, because I didn't do any customization. I think Photoshop uses that as a defalt head for SEO reasons. In the slot for name, I only put Outdoor Photography.

"Excellen advice, Geoff. No one likes to hear it, but I advise those who want to really lean about photography to set everythng on manual for a few months to get a basic idea of how apature, shutter speed and ISO relate to each other. It's all…"

"I've shot seriously for almost four decades, and I'm no fanboy of any maker, so when I switched from Nikon to Pentax a few years ago, it was for pragmatic business reasons. Pentax is by far the best deal on the market, especially when you…"
"The megapixel race between manufacturers has pushed the number far beyond what is needed for all but very large prints. At 8X10, I can't tell any difference between my $150 12mp P&S and my many-thousands 14.6mp DSLR equipment. As Patrick…"

"For shooting sports, I don't think you'll have time to mess with focus points. You need to shoot quickly most of time. At 200mm and f-2.8 and the distances you describe, your DOF should be fairly wide and you shouldn't have much…"

I joined MMS a couple of weeks ago and have been fascinated with the macro photography. I have decided that I want that to be my #1 style. Saw your reference on the macro group to your wildflower macros. Most of those flowers are breathtaking. (The photography isn't bad either) :> I see you live in KY. I live in the desert, where there are also an amazing amount of tiny wildflowers. Can't wait to get a camera and lens that can record them. Thanks for the inspiration. You do amazing work.
thanks for your comment on my killdeer chick. i look for them every spring. if you have killdeer in your area, look for their nests on the ground out in the open. the nesting material usually consists of merely a few small stones, many times out in the open, so watch your step! the eggs are white with brown specks. once you find the nest, you will know the area to watch. on the first few days after hatching you can see them running everywhere.
