Nikon D500 and Girls High School Volleyball in Texas

   I had the opportunity to shoot with the new Nikon D500 at a girls high school volleyball game in Texas this week. Using an AF-S 70-700mm f/2.8 VRII with the D500 in shutter priority and manual mode with Auto ISO. This combo provided some amazingly clean files with ISO peaking at 12800. These photos have only minor (1/2 stop) exposure adjustments and no noise reduction. Even with some significant cropping the files are impressive.

Family Pool Phtography

There is really only one way to get great family pool portraits......get in the water. Well that's exactly what I did, but with a little anxiety I might add. With $8500 worth of camera and lens in hand, one slip, well you get the point. Luckily, there was no drama and the client loves the photos. Enough said!
