BEST VIEWED LARGE

I just bought a Nikon D90 from a friend here on Redbubble. I was studying the manual and trying a few shots from our upper deck here at our home in Southeast Missouri this morning. I head a helicopter coming and rushed out to the deck, aimed as it flew over and started shooting. Imagine my surprise when I started looking at the images on the computer and I see a photographer with his long lens camera looking back at me!!!

Nikon D90 with Nikkor 70X300mm VR lens ~ The Nikon D90 shoots 12..9 DX format megapixels at a rate of 4.5 frames per second on continuous shooting. By the time I found it in the viewfinder, focused and started shooting the helicopter I had shot 42 images before it was to far away!!

    That’s a good one!!!!!! I thought I blew it up I would be able to tell what his camera was. lol Nice shot. What did you shoot with before?

  • Thanks, I couldn’t tell either but it looks like a cannon long lens. I also have my nikon D40x so now I have two and will keep a seperate lens on each one.

  • Thank you Sis, it is a lot heaver than the D40X. I am still looking for a camera bag that I don’t have to mortgage the house to buy.

    That IS cool. And in a parallel universe there’s a photographer from a helicopter looking at the image of a man on a deck with a camera……

  • Thanks, you may be right because I have other images of him with his camera pointed right at me but you can not see the camera as well ad in this one. So he may have shot me also (:>)
