Outdoor Photography

Professional photographer, John Aydelotte, KE6U, will be our guest this week and with a little luck, we will cover several of the topics that should be of interest to all who enjoy the outdoors and who enjoy taking pictures. So, dust off your cameras, cell phones, or Yaesu FT 400s and join us.

Here are the topics that we plan on covering:
  • point and shoot cameras
  • go-pro
  • drone photography
  • digital SLR cameras at non-professional consumer prices
  • wide angle lens
  • Raw vs jpeg
  • good video cameras
  • outdoor photography tips and suggestions
If there is a topic that you want to add to the list, let us know!!!

We will be posting some example of Johns work, below. This net is also your opportunity to share some of your camera work and tell us where it was taken, what type of equipment you were using, and any special techniques you used. Since just about everyone carries a phone and since they all have cameras these days, everybody ought to have something to contribute. Don't be shy.

Having a pocket digital camera or cell phone camera can be an important item to take while out hunting or engaging in other outdoor activities. In the photos below, a small, pocket digital camera allowed me to memorialize a youth hunter's first harvests of game. That hunting trip was a trip he'll never forget, and these photos allow him to share the joy and success of the hunt with friends and family.

My preference is to use a pocket digital camera as opposed to a more robust digital SLR, especially when walking miles a day through brush and rocks while carrying a pack and other hunting gear. Sure, there is a trade off in photo quality, but the weight savings can be substantial. For me, the hunt or other outdoor adventure is more important than the photo, so I'm good with the photos the pocket camera can deliver.

These photos are presented as taken in the field.

Product Spot Light

HookUpz 2.0 from Carson

Saw this recently and thought is was worth while letting everyone know about it. What I liked was, I did not have to squint through the spotting scope. The smart phone gave me a big picture and we could record the event. About $60 dollars from Amazon, Cabela's, Bass Pro ...
