Ok…shake-off that hangover. Can you find the female agama lizard?
I miss my office…
Zazu: Checking in with the morning report.
Mufasa: Fire away.
Zazu: Well the buzz from the bees is that the leopards are in a bit of a spot. And the baboons are going ape over this. Of course, the giraffes are acting like they’re above it all… The tick birds are pecking on the elephants. I told the elephants to forget it, but they can’t. The cheetahs are hard up, but I always say, cheetahs never prosper…
curly-haired-ocean-eyes said: Hey NJ, I have recently taken some nature shots of silver tail monkeys from Borneo with a digital camera. I am a begginers photographer and was wondering what camera is the best to start with (for nature shoots?)
Hi. I can’t speak to “the best” camera as that is subjective. You want a camera that you are able to fully control manually and that takes interchangeable lenses. I started out with Canon’s Rebel (xTi) and was very happy. The lenses are very important so invest in good glass. I wish I understood this from the onset. A Canon L lens will hold it’s value and you can use it on different bodies as they change and you advance. Nature and wildlife are two different types of photography. Nature generally requires a wide angle lens, or macro. Wildlife requires a longer lenses. Birding generally requires a really long lens. Hope that helps.
My adventure the past few days…
Helping out academy award nominated flimmaker (for The War Room) Christine Hegedus and her team. They were at Fauna shooting a new documentary about legal scholar, author and founder of the Nonhuman Rights Project, Steve Wise and his battle to win nonhuman personhood for Tommy the chimpanzee.
Take a look at my post about Steve: In Their Hands: In Support of Steven Wise.
You can check out Steve on The Colbert Report tomorrow night!
