How many lenses do you fly with...

06 March 2017 - 08:52 AM

I am packing up for a trip to Belize and I am (once again) trying to reduce the pile of camera "stuff" I will take.

 

My normal quiver contains: Tokina 10-17, Nikon 60 Macro, Nikon 105 macro. I also have a Nikon 12-24 which can be a handy lens at times. This lens requires my 8" dome, where the Tokina works well with my 4".

 

I also have a Nikon 18-105 for the odd land pic, and a separate D7000 body for backup.

 

I'm just curious about your opinions on taking all of these lenses.

 

Currently, everything can be crammed into a Pelican carry-on, except the domes, the spare body and 18-105... and the 12-24 would need to ride elsewhere.

 

Also, in my next life, I am taking up badminton instead of underwater photography, for a hobby.


And you think UW shooters are obsessed...

When I'm not diving, I am almost as obsessed with skiing, although I have never bothered to try to shoot anything other than snapshots in the mountains.

 

I stumbled across this mini-doc about a quest to get one perfect image... skiers against a solar eclipse. It sounds easy until you see what's involved.

 

Enjoy!

 


Shooting sealions

31 August 2016 - 06:19 PM

Hi all...

 

I am heading back to British Columbia in a few weeks, and I have added a couple of days to my trip, specifically to shoot sealions. This will be a first for me!

 

For those of you experienced with shooting this mayhem, how do you normally tackle it? I always shoot manual everything, but I have heard of other "Manualites" that choose to shoot full Auto with video lights, only because everything is moving so fast. I want to maximize my "keeper quotient", but I'm used to taking my time, being a shipwreck shooter!

 

Thanks!
