Nikon Introduces NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S

Nikon Introduces NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S

The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S includes a built-in 1.4 x teleconverter.

Nikon today unveiled the NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S telephoto prime, a key lens for wildlife and sports photographers. It’s the longest prime available yet for the Z system, though an 800mm is in development. The new lens includes a built-in 1.4x teleconverter to extend the focal length to 560mm and can also be paired with Nikon Z TC-1.4x and TC-2x teleconverters to get all the way out to 1120mm.

The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S is the first lens to include a newly developed Silky Swift Voice Coil Motor (SSVCM) which Nikon states enables “high-speed, high accuracy AF with near-silent operation,” as well as Meso Amorphous Coat for the best reflection control available in a Nikon lens, superior to that of Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat.

Weighing in at approximately 6.5 pounds, Nikon has achieved a significant reduction of weight in the design of this lens compared to the NIKKOR AF-S 400mm f/2.8FL ED VR which weighs about 2 pounds more. That’s an attractive advantage for photographers who prefer to shoot handheld to react more quickly when tracking wildlife or sports action, as is the built-in Vibration Reduction system that’s capable of up to 5.5 stops of correction.

As you’d expect of a premium professional NIKKOR lens, it features extensive weather sealing and a durable magnesium alloy body. It also includes customizable function buttons on the barrel. The NIKKOR Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR is expected in “late February” with a list price of $13,999.

7 Quick Landscape Photography Reminders

7 Quick Landscape Photography Reminders

Nature photography encompasses a lot of subtopics. Abstracts, macro, wildlife, landscapes, star trails, astrophotography, environmental and so much more. Then, factor in that each of these subtopics encompasses further subdivisions. It’s no wonder many nature photographers specialize in just one area. Today’s focus is landscapes, and I share with you a guide of 7 quick landscape photography reminders to carry in your camera bag to remind you of what can be done to bring your landscapes to the next level.

Light

The most sought-after light occurs at sunrise and sunset. The color is warm, it reveals shape and texture due to the low angle and if there are clouds, the colors can be spectacular. Stay out until sunset and be at your location at the crack of dawn to capture the effect. Work the light 90 degrees to your subject to create shape and texture.

Rule of Thirds

I prefer to call it the “guideline of thirds” in that there are times when you can break it successfully, but for the majority of photographic situations, it will help. Get the main subject out of the center of the picture. Place primary subjects where the lines of a tic-tac-toe grid intersect.

Leading Lines

Leading lines guide the viewer’s eye to the primary focal points. They can be zig-zag, bending, diagonal or straight and should relate to the context of the overall image.

Think Small

Landscapes are commonly photographed with wide-angle lenses to take in the grand scenic. But don’t overlook the intimate landscape that lies at your feet or the narrow slice of the overall environment. Look to the right, to the left, down and up. The shot of the day may be a portion of the overall scene.

Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness Study Area

Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness Study Area

Nikon D200, AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED at 18mm (27mm equivalent), Manfrotto 190XB tripod with Manfrotto 3437 ballhead. Exposure: 3 sec., ƒ/22, ISO 100.

The Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness Study Area (WSA) is one of several remote badlands in northwestern New Mexico. Throughout the area known as the San Juan Basin, the same geological features that contain beds of coal and gas coveted by industry have also been carved by the ages into fanciful badlands, populated by strange “hoodoos” of rock. The nearby Bisti Wilderness is the most well-known and easily accessible of these badlands and provides a good introduction to the area.

The Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah and other badlands are on the “checkerboard,” where the square miles of land alternate in ownership between state, Bureau of Land Management and the Navajo Nation. Slow down while driving and watch out for livestock. Maps are recommended to navigate the lonely open-range roads of the area. A high clearance vehicle is usually not needed, but all-wheel drive might keep you out of trouble.

As for the badlands themselves, there’s not much variance in elevation between the highest and lowest parts of the landscape, so topo maps are of limited use. Just keep your eyes open. These alien landscapes are as fragile as any that you’ll ever visit, so please tread lightly because your footprints might be visible for years to come.

Weather At Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah Wilderness

In summer, dusty winds and brutal sun prevail, and the high desert heat of June and July could be too much for some unaccustomed hikers. Sunscreen and lots of water are the most important items to carry in your pack. The summer thunderstorms make for some of the best backdrops for photography, but they can also strand you for hours when the dirt roads become impassable. If stormy skies are what you’re looking for, be prepared to possibly stay a while.

Last Frame: The Pounce

Last Frame: The Pounce

Photo By Steve Santel

“In the golden light of a late afternoon, I spent over an hour observing fox kits wrestle and chase each other around a field on San Juan Island,” says Steve Santel. “I was extremely blessed to vicariously share the joy of their energetic and exuberant play. The young vixen, pictured towards the right of the frame, was often the catalyst. She daringly harassed and pursued her larger male siblings. The time spent with these kits was the highlight of the trip. It also proved to be one of the most memorable wildlife experiences I’ve had to date.”

Revealing The Invisible

Revealing The Invisible

Entrance to Angkor Thom, Siem Reap, Cambodia, 2020. 590nm infrared. Canon EOS R, Canon RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM at 47mm. Exposure: 1/1600 sec., ƒ/7.1, ISO 400.

I fell in love with photography in 1974—or, more to the point, I became infatuated with working in the darkroom. My images were not anywhere near special, but I spent hours in a cloud of toxic fumes and vapors, watching the alchemy of images emerge from blank pieces of paper. I felt like a magician. Anyone who has worked in a darkroom knows that feeling well. But I abandoned my darkroom in the mid 1980s for color transparency film, the choice for a working magazine professional at that time. Now, like most of us, I use digital cameras and work in the “grayroom” (yes, my studio walls are painted 18 percent gray). I still feel as if I’m creating magic, only now it’s on a computer screen. “A little bit of saturation here, some burning and dodging there, a bit more contrast overall.”

From the start, I led a peripatetic life, working as a mountain and river-rafting guide in the U.S., which progressed to guiding treks and private expeditions to places like Nepal, Bhutan, China, central Asia—you name it. From there, I was propelled into the life of a full-time photographer. Travel and photography became my passion, one intertwined with the other. I have always chosen places that make me a bit uneasy, places that challenge me. I have the same philosophy for my photography—to grow as an artist, I can’t rely on a previous moment of inspiration. I want to work at the edge of my comfort level, at the moment between competence and risk.

Inherently, photography is much more difficult than it appears at first. As one delves further into the depths of creating new and evocative images, it is clear that what seemed deceptively simple to photograph was maddingly difficult to render in an image. With the advent of high-resolution digital cameras and sophisticated processing, there is not an “Everest” in creative photography. But it sure is fun climbing this photographic mountain.

Camel herder, Gobi Desert, Mongolia, 2019. 590nm infrared with blue/red channel swap. Canon EOS R, Canon RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM at 105mm. Exposure: 1/800 sec., ƒ/7.,1 ISO 640.

Behind The Shot: Morning Mist

Behind The Shot: Morning Mist

Photo By Marek Dudek

Life can quickly become oversaturated with soul-sucking hardships until it reaches the point where the direction you’re going is unpredictable. Suddenly, as if by some unknown force and the minuscule flame of hope within you, you’re led to the exact place where you need to be. For me, that place was in the Hudson Valley region—the sanctuary that is Seven Lakes Drive.

The Seven Lakes Drive begins in the village of Sloatsburg, New York, and winds through Harriman State Park to Bear Mountain. Every season adds its own charm to the picturesque scenery, but the most breathtaking beauty is during the height of the fall foliage, where different shades of reds, oranges and yellows blend to create an orchestra of colors. This place is not unfamiliar territory for me—the open road tucked between the natural wilderness creates a cycling oasis. I always make sure to take my camera along for my biking trips because the perfect photo often comes unannounced. That’s exactly what I was reminded of on October 23, 2017.

That early morning, the fog gently covered the surroundings of Lake Tiorati like a blanket, and I crept quietly along the trail to not wake the slumbering wilderness. I had just come back from my biking trip and decided to venture forth into the mysterious woods. I found a few interesting spots, but there was an opening where the light pierced the clouds and made my surroundings feel otherworldly. As I walked back to my car, the fog began to lift, and I realized that although we may feel scared and our direction in life may seem uncertain, the mist always clears in the morning.

Five Keys To Better Images

Five Keys To Better Images

A plethora of articles, photo tips, blogs and more have been composed offering readers the keys to better images. I’m one who writes about that topic weekly as I enjoy sharing what I know, hoping it does assist those who read my Tip of the Week. I’ve been a teacher all my life and will continue to instruct until I take my final breath. It’s who I am. So what separates this week’s tip from any other I’ve written or from any other blog or magazine article? What makes this one so different or special? Hopefully, you’ll be able to key into a definitive answer as you unlock the words and study the accompanying images. The control key is in your hands and the benefit of flagging this week’s tip is you can use the return key to revisit the concepts when you desire.

Use Piano Keys

Photography and good music are a huge part of my life. I find many comparisons between the two. You want your photos to sing so viewers find harmony in the compositions you create. Avoid awkward mergers where subjects overlap, which makes it difficult to differentiate the subject from the background or, in the case of multiple subjects, be patient and let them separate rather than have them fall into chaos. Keep the compositions melodic so the “notes” blend. The last thing you want is to have the viewer describe your images as “off key.” There is no minor key when it comes to this—it’s ALL major key. Use your tuning key to get dialed in! In the photo of the two elephants, they stand out from the background because there are no distracting elements. Also, even though they’re touching, there’s harmony in the connection.

Skeleton Key

Give your photos life. Make no bones about it! For every subsequent shutter click you make, toss the skeletons in your closet that keep you from attaining the next level. No more photos for you that have to be brought back to life. The key way to add life to your images is with the strategic use of light. Get up early to use the gorgeous light of sunrise to capture virility in your images. Stay out late and capture the last light of day to add viability to your photos. Use moody light such as fog or mist to create mystery. In the photo of the Mitten formation in Monument Valley with the sunstar coming through the thumb, I had to be there early and at the right time of year to line up the rising sun with the opening.

While I’m on the topic of light, incorporate high-key and low-key light to separate your images from others. High-key light suggests positivity and is very upbeat. It’s bright, airy and pure. There’s an openness to it that’s unique. On the other hand, Low key is comprised mostly of shadows and dark tones. Many old black-and-white film noir movies were filmed using this technique. Think of the dark alleyway where the man wearing a derby was in the shadows lighting a cigarette. Seek out both types of light and begin to integrate them into your repertoire. It’s one of the keys to better images!

Smart Key

In the days of my youth, I never would have conjured the fact a key can be “smart.” The ONLY key I knew was used to tighten metal skates to my Keds. With regards to photography, I bestow a Smart Key to all so you begin to use light in a smart way. Read the manual so you become familiar with how your gear works and learn its potential. Be smart when you put the camera to your eye to create a composition. Use the rule of thirds—it’s proven it works! Create balance so one side of a composition isn’t weighted too heavily while the opposite side doesn’t capture the viewer.
