If you are a Nikon camera owner and belong to the Nikonians website check out my photography articles. Nikonians.org. Below is an article I wrote for the Soundings Journal website about photographing Anna's Hummingbirds.
I love the way the camera sees the world, it can be so unique, so different than what is actually there when I take the photograph. My goal is to take photographs that show the world the way I see it, using the unique photographic abilities that I have, the technical abilities of my camera, and my digital darkroom skills to output the best photograph "equivalent" that I can; a photograph that is wholly representative of my vision in photography and art. I am not a documentarian or a photo journalist, I edit, delete, and change as needed. My goal is photographic art and there is no "right" or "wrong" involved in that.
In November & December I was in the Falkland Islands and the southern portion of Antarctica photographing penguins, other animals, icebergs and landscapes. It was a fairly wild trip and included "suiting up" in really warm clothes, wet pants and coat, life jacket, and boots each time we got off the ship to visit an island. It was a little like a fire drill every time! There was 32 photographers and we were in wind, snow and ice at any given moment trying to get that perfect shot. It was not an easy task. The photos shown represent a small portion of those that I actually got but I am still looking through them all to find the gems, or at least the ones I like! If you want to see additional images go to the Fallkland Islands or Antarctica page as listed above.
