Backyard visiting birds & wildlife on the local Campaspe River offer many opportunities.
I taught black & white photography, as well as Chemistry in four Victorian High Schools (Seymour, Moorleigh, Swan Hill & Echuca). On going digital in the early 2000s, my first digital SLR was a Nikon D100. Over the next few years, I updated through the Nikon D200, D2X, D3, D3X, D4 & D5. I currently use a D6, Z7, Z7II & Z9 (delivered 29/12/2021). For football, I use a Nikon 400mm f2.8 lens, while for cricket a Nikon 600mm f4 lens (sale of lens pending). All images are taken in (NEF) RAW format, with camera set to manual mode (correct exposure is achieved with “auto iso”). Photos are processed in Adobe Camera Raw & saved as JPEGs. If time permits, low light wildlife Raw files are batch-processed in DxO PureRaw 2 to remove noise. The files are then reduced in size & watermarked using an action & a script in Photoshop CC, before being uploaded to this website.
