The Nikon D500 and a Dancer: Street Scenes, Studio and the Stage with Joe McNally

Dusk to Dawn: Adam Woodworth Takes the Nikon D5 into Darkness
“Sometimes it’s more about the journey than the photo,” theorizes landscape astrophotographer Adam Woodworth. “You reach a spot then don’t get the image you want, but the experience is amazing. Other times it happens that both journey and photo leave you excited.” On a return visit to Newfoundland, this time carrying the Nikon D5, Woodworth walked away with both. https://bit.ly/2WZUqR8
Autumn in New York
TIPS AND TRICKS FROM NIKON SENIOR PRODUCT MANAGER LINDSAY SILVERMAN
“I am very lucky to live in a place that has distinct changes of seasons.

How to Run a Successful Wedding and Portrait Photography Business, Bambi Cantrell

Into the Wild with David Wright and the Nikon D500
“As someone who splits his time between shooting stills and video, I am always looking for a camera that can do it all. It’s a tall order; you either have a great still camera that is OK at video, or a capable video camera that takes average stills,” remarks global cinematographer David Wright. In the past year, Wright’s clients have included the BBC, National Geographic, PBS and the online service Curiosity Stream. Read more.

A San Francisco Bay View Aboard America's Cup Boat "USA 76"
Even though the sailing season in Northern California scales back in the late fall to winter months, we locals still hit the water with vigor when an opportunity comes up, rain or shine. Personally, I love slogging around on a boat in the rain, but my camera does not, so when Peter Ziegler at ACsailingSF popped me an email asking if I'd like to join for a social sail I said yes! Lucky for me, the invite fell on the best weather day of this past weekend, Sunday.
Peter, crew member and key man in charge of keeping USA 76 in top mechanical shape, loves his job and loves to share the experience of being on the Bay. He, along with fellow ACsailingSF mates Jon Buser and Ray Duran plus several guests, hoisted sails for a two-hour America's Cup voyage aboard USA 76. Read more.
Big Boats & Big Wind
The annual seven race Rolex Big Boat Series was held in San Francisco September 15-18 this year. Contrasted to last year, where final day competition was aborted due to no wind and sailors opted for shirtless sun tanning and bottled brews, the final day rounded out things with steady 15+ knot sea breezes.
In 1958, Rolex was among the first premier timepiece companies to begin supporting yachting events. Rolex maintains a global alliance with twelve prestige clubs, including the St. Francis, the Royal Ocean Racing Club, Royal Malta Yacht Club, Yacht Club Capri and Kieler Yacht-Club. Among the events the company sponsors are the Fastnet in Cowes/Plymouth, United Kingdom, the Sydney Hobart Race, the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in Puerto Cervo, Italy and the Giraglia Rolex Cup. Read more.
