A helicopter was flying up and down to a new cell phone antenna, finishing their work and taking equipment back from the hill, when I decided to take some shots with the Nikkor 200-500 f/5.6 VR on the Nikon D750. Enjoy!
As we’ve all have noticed, there is a lot of different camera straps available in the shops. Most of them are just a variation of the strap that comes in the box with your camera, others are quite different. So why just stick with the strap that your camera manufacturer gives you?
We had a wonderful time traveling in Southern Spain, but we also learned something that we want to share with you. We limit our tips to the South, as we haven’t been traveling in the North yet, maybe they stay the same, maybe not. We will update accordingly.
Update, we’ve now been a few weeks driving around in Northern Spain and will add some text in blue where appropriate.
As most of us, I guess you’ve come home, uploading your photos to your computer, browsing through them eager to share some online and thinking…. “hmm, I don’t want to share any of these online, not even those I was sure would be great when I pressed the shutter button”. What happened? The camera does a very good job determining the white balance, exposure and focus, but the rest of it is controlled by the person who took the photo. So don’t blame the camera in the first place.
Here are some tips that will improve your personal skills to take better photos.
When we first came to the city of Nerja, we didn’t even know about the Caves. Our round trip to Southern Spain was just loosely decided before we left to make room for some extra treats.

Everybody likes to look into the crystal ball from time to time. Sometimes we like to predict what is coming, other times what WE like to be coming. Here is what I would like to be released from Nikon regards camera, and Nikkor regards lenses
I’m not talking about ND, polarizer or color filters, but about clear or UV filters. Do we need them or not. Of course do we need them, but do we need them on all of the time and are they for everybody? Often do we come across arguments one way or the other online or in person about the pros and cons of using those filters. So to jump right into it, what are actually the pros and cons?
What to bring on a trip is always a question on how are you traveling and what you expect doing there, and of course your priorities. In most cases you can’t bring all your photo gear, so already there, your priority starts. After we acquired the phenomenal Think Tank Airport International v3 rolling bag, most of our problems did go away.
The discussion about the “best” camera is a debate that never ends and is also a personal choice. These are my recommendations based on my opinion and needs. As this is a photography blog with lots of travel pictures and some more personal photos, the recommendations reflect this.
