Wildlife In Florida Winter 2016

I love photography. 

I don't really care what I'm shooting in general i love being behind my Nikon. Whether it's a model with all the lighting i can get my hands on or if it's a punk rock show with people jumping on top of my head while i try to capture a sharp image. The key to me is that I love the problem solving, the process, the creativity that goes into the trying to capture something that is real while putting my vision into it fuels my love for pushing a shutter.

One of the things I very rarely get to shoot because I live in Queens NY is wildlife. I'm not saying it doesn't exist but I will say I don't have the patience to get the best out of my local area. When i get to travel i love to get nature in front of me. For Christmas I took my daughter to see Grandma in the wilds of Tampa. I grabbed my D5 and a Nikkor 600mm f/4 FL as well as the 1.4 TC III in hopes of capturing some of the wildlife that is within miles of my mom's house. But once i was out there what i realized is that the D500 was the camera that I most wanted when shooting birds. At 10 frames per second and with the same AF as the D5 it makes an amazing bird/wildlife camera giving me effectively 900mm due to the crop of the sensor. Those extra mm proved to be indispensable when i got the chance to photograph the herons, eagles, and gators that are abundant in any wetland in central Florida.
