Very nice!
Though I hope that last pic was from a reenactment and not from the actual Civil War… I don’t think you are THAT old! :biggrin

Thanks...some days when this arthritis acts a fool I feel like I'm that old :(

The shot was taken in 2001 at the Battle of Shiloh reenactment

You must have used a really good zoom lens to reach way out there but still freeze those perched birds. That's professional quality stuff!

Thanks to all.

I shot the perching birds with a Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 APO DG HSM EX lens on a Canon digital body and the waterfowl with a Nikkor 300mm f/4 AFS ED IF on a Nikon digital body. Thanks.

That's some very serious gear! Amazon says those lenses should add up to about $4,000 and the bodies could total way more than that! If I had that kind of equipment, I'd be afraid to take it out of the house--much less carry it fishing.

Yeah your about right...:eek: I did photography as a job for several years, so it was a business expense. I bought the Nikon D1x when it came out in 2001 and gave $5,400 (msrp was $6,000...you can verify here (http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond1x/2)) and some change for just the body :Doh: and $1,200+ for the 300 f/4 AFS ED IF.

I have sold all the Nikon stuff since and only shoot Canon now. As far as taking it fishing, well just keep the insurance paid up on it. :ThumbsUp

Here's my old Nikon D1x with a portrait lens

We will greatly appreciate your contributions to these discussions. Most of us are point-and-shooters with unlimited opportunity for improvement in all categories--especially composition. Can there be new and creative ways to photograph a fish?

Heh heh...I 've been called worse (than a pro) :rolleyes:
I think there are different/creative ways to do fishing photography...I am not sure about new. One that comes to mind right off is capturing the pic while lipping or dip-netting the fish from the water. Just some little different pose or angle than the usual face to face, stick the fish in the camera pic. Try different poses, angles, and lighting. Be creative. :ThumbsUp
