Photographing ice hockey with the Nikon Z6

Photographing ice hockey with the Nikon Z6 is by Joseph Nuzzo:

Nikon is making headlines all over with the introduction of its first set of full frame digital cameras that we have come to know as the Z6 & Z7. All over I’ve seen questions on blogs and social media sites debating if these cameras are good enough for professional level work.

I am lucky enough to work freelance for a New York based newspaper and get to cover NHL hockey and major concerts in the New York area. Recently, I purchased a Nikon Z6 camera with the hopes that I would be able to use it for shooting these types of events. I quickly put it to work shooting some smaller NY area concerts and the results were stellar.

But could it shoot pro sports? Recently while assigned to shoot a NY Islanders hockey game I decided to put the Z6 to the test.

Catch-as-catch-can New Zealand travel photography with the Nikon 1 J5 and Nikon 1 V3 cameras

Catch-as-catch-can New Zealand travel photography with the Nikon 1 J5 and Nikon 1 V3 cameras by Thomas Stirr (check out also his previous [NR] guest posts, there could be one or two images taken with the D800):

New Zealand is on the bucket list of many photographers for good reason. The country contains a wealth of varied and interesting scenery on its two main islands. It is a reasonably easy country to navigate in terms of a self-drive experience. And, its people are warm and hospitable. My wife and I have had the good fortune to be able to travel to New Zealand a number of times over the past few years, and have enjoyed each of our journeys. We chronicled our travels in one of our recent photography eBooks, New Zealand Tip-to-Tip.

Our approach to travel photography is best described as ‘catch-as-catch-can’. We preplan our route and book all of our rooms well in advance. We then take each day as it comes, trying to do the best we can with whatever road and weather conditions we happen to face. This article shares a selection of our images captured at some of our favourite locations in New Zealand.
