Weekly Hot-5 - April 25 - 2016

WH5-x2-SQ_110.jpgWhat's "hot" this week in our forums?

Our editorial staff and Moderating Team members run across much more topics and images than the average member, and we realize a lot of very interesting material deserves to be highlighted and shared in our community.

The Weekly Hot 5 Blog encourages you to join in the discussions, or have a look at a photo that we think will inspire you to grab your Nikon gear and capture equally outstanding images.

We start with this image:

WH5-SQ-1_75x75.jpg------------------------------------------------------ Silver member Larry Jordan (ljordan316), from Florida, USA is enthusiastic with the results he's getting using his new Nikon D500. He's especially pleased with the Auto ISO, which he calls "Magic."

Check his post for a closer look at his sample photo to see why Larry calls his new D500 "one bird shooting machine."


WH5-SQ-2_75x75.jpg------------------------------------------------------ Robert Kusztos (PhotoRoberto) from Pennsylvania, USA tells us he finally entered the FX world and he's happy with the results.  

He titles his post: The D610 rocks! Initial impressions. 

If you are still looking for member reviews on the Nikon D610, this is a good read. 


WH5-SQ-3_75x75.jpg------------------------------------------------------ Silver member D. Eric Johnson (Eric J) from Michigan, USA is having difficulties obtaining sharp images. Don't we all have that problem at one time or another? 


WH5-x2-2_450.jpg


But, in his case, with his level of experience and the gear he is using, he shouldn't be having this problem. Have a look at his post, along with the sample image, and see if you can help him out. 


WH5-SQ-4_75x75.jpg------------------------------------------------------ Silver member Wen Wu (wwp512) from New Mexico, USA  has been shooting portraits using IR.

If you have been thinking about trying out your skills at IR portraiture, read his post and replies.

WH5-SQ-5_75x75.jpg------------------------------------------------------Silver member Paul Sharp (nzyme) from New Zealand has nailed the proper technique for "Prop Blur."

If you are new to aircraft in flight photography,"prop blur" may seem like a strange goal. It's desired because a slight blur shows motion. 

For more background  we have an entire series of posts by members discussing the technique.
