Welcome to my Digital Field Guide Companion
Welcome to my initial foray into the world of blogging. I have written 5 books for Wiley Publishing's Digital Field Guide series and I often get emails asking for specific information on some of the images in the books and for additional tips and tricks for specific cameras. I decided to start this blog as a way of connecting with my readers and to help share any experience or insights that I may have.
In this blog I'll be sharing some little known tricks, tips, and settings for different cameras. I'll also be sharing some of my image settings such as the Optimize image settings for the Nikon D40/x, D50, D60, D70/s, D80 and D200, also I'll be posting some of my custom Picture Control settings for the D300 and D3.
I'll also create some tutorials for various post-processing techniques and I'll even take you inside of some of my shoots offering valuable insight on what steps it takes to make an image from start to finish, beginning with the set-up and lighting on into post-processing.
From camera settings to lighting to post-processing I hope to include a lot more information to help you get the best images that you can.
