Weekly Hot-5 - May 24 - 2016

Tugboat_covey_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 and Trending 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 by Gold member Aart Louw (AartPapaya) from South Africa. In his post titled A few Impala studies he shared interesting images taken at Kruger National Park with his Nikon D810.

AArt explains:
"Impala is by far the most common antelope in the KNP and is therefore not regarded as worthy of a photo. They are however graceful and well worth spending time with."

Moderating Team member Jonathan Kandel (JonK) posted a link to the description of a newspaper photo shoot featuring a political candidate.
You will recognize that candidate (Donald Trump), but that's not why Jon posted it.
In fact he wants you to ignore the politics: "Seriously, forget who the candidate is. Just enjoy this shoot, the concept of confetti, buying it, picking out one color, cutting rectangles into squares, "distributing" it -- and cleaning it all up after the five minute shoot."

Lady-Boat_350.jpgGold member John Wilson (Travjohn) from North Carolina, USA has started an informal name that lady session:
"A face that has graced every digital Nikon that I've owned, standing patiently while the same boat sails behind her. I wonder if she even has a name -- if not, maybe we should give her one."
Check it out.
We already have some interesting suggestions.

Can you capture great images involving boats without going out to sea?
Moderating Team member Armando Heredia (Covey22) proves the answer is a solid yes with a series photos taken at a shipyard.
He was using his Nikon D7000 on this shoot.

NIKON-LOGO-SQ-125.jpgGold member John Hernlund (Tokyo_John) from Japan has been following economic trends affecting the photo industry in his area and shares his thoughts in a post titled Nikon business in a tough period.
