My life as a “photo enthusiast” OR “I use”
Please Critique @ or
1. I use the AF-ON back button to focus by setting a4 in the Custom Settings Menu to AF-ON only. The shutter release button activates only exposure.
2. I use ISO set to 100 unless I need more.
3. I use Aperture Priority Mode (“A”) unless I need to capture fast moving subjects. Then “S” with the shutter speed set to at least the reciprocal of the focal length or faster e.g. (1/200sec at 200mm). Sometimes “M” using live-view magnified with a Carry Speed light shield and the camera viewfinder closed.
4. I use a tripod and with a remote, or “Q” the 2-second delayed shutter release mode, if the subject allows. Hand-held is a challenge.
5. I use a very expensive 70-200mm f/2.8, or the 16-35mm f/4 for landscapes and other wide-angle compositions. I do use a 105mm f/2.8 for macro and an 85mm f/1.8 for light-weight carry around shooting. I think I use my 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 more than any other lens on the D7000 and D800e.
6. I use an SB-910 flash (used remotely) or an O-flash for macro. I use the on-camera flash for emergencies.
7. I use Lightroom4, and CS6 for editing with Topaz filters. I have Elements9 and Capture NX2 but seldom use them. For HDR I use Photomatix.
8. Oh yeah! I use a D800e, D7000, or D70 converted to IR with a calibrated 10-70mm f/3.5-4.5, but I take the most photos with my Panasonic ZS20 and its 20X, because I go nowhere without it.
1. I do not photograph humans, except family members. I do have a mirror angle lens that may allow me to try it, deceptively, someday.
2. I am a highly educated scientist (PhD), but am learning to be an artist with that side of my brain unused for several decades.
3. I have pretty much given up tennis, golf and women for this new, all encompassing, passion—Photography.
4. Printing more is the next challenge on my “to-do” list.

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could definitely be one of the best in its niche. Good blog!
