NIKON D750 “MOMENT” SETTINGS

I just returned from teaching at the3-day Fearless Class workshop in Texas with Huy Nguyen and Kirsten Lewis Bethmann. It was 3 days all about moments. During that time I promised the Nikon shooters in attendance that I would explain my settings for optimizing efficiency on my D750 to make my life easier when trying to capture fleeting moments at weddings or family sessions. Since I ran out of time to do that I decided to make a video and finally update this site. 🙂 Sit back and watch how I set up my cameras as well as a little explanation of the one feature of my Nikon’s that will make it extremely difficult to ever switch camera systems. It is a game changer that no other camera systems have as far as I know.     For those what want to watch Dave Cheung’s video on how to set up all of this up in the menus go... Read More

A Wirkshop that gives back

A Wirkshop that gives back

  I’ll be honest. When we first hatched the idea of teaming up with Camp Encourage, a camp for kids on the Autism spectrum, for Camp Wirkshop the idea of wanting to give back with as a workshop was not the sole purpose we had in mind. Brandon Parigo and I first were introduced to Camp Encourage a few years ago when they hired him to do a documentary video for them for use at their annual fund raising gala. I simply tagged along to do still photos. I had little idea what being Autistic really meant and I even less of an idea how being around these kids and part of this camp would effect me. Seeing what this organization does for these children is nothing but astounding. On the surface they play games, cook smores, go zip lining, horseback riding and swim but this camp is way more than that. This camp encourages self confidence, and changes these kids many of which have never slept away from home their entire lives. To see how these kids open up from day one to the end of camp is nothing short of amazing. They seem to leave a little bit different. It was awesome to watch and it was a story we wanted to tell. It only made sense to tell those stories on a bigger scale than just what Brandon and I could do so Camp Wirkshop was born. The idea was simple. Let’s make a workshop for photographers that helps them learn how to tell better stories visually. As photographers there is only so much of the... Read More
