Nikon today launched the “Nikon Behind the Scenes” video series, dedicated to help you take your photography to the next level. The video series follows a diverse group of leading photographers into the field, including Nikon Ambassadors Joe McNally and Corey Rich and Nikon Professional Photographer Tamara Lackey. These pros provide insight on subjects ranging from lighting, lensing, posing models, shooting landscapes, working with different subjects and gearing up for a shoot.
“Nikon is committed to engaging our fans with interesting and informative content, and the ‘Nikon Behind the Scenes Video Series’ is an entertaining way to fulfill this promise,” said Lisa Baxt, Associate General Manager of Communications, Nikon Inc. From the moment someone picks up their camera, they have in their hands unlimited creative possibilities and we hope this inspires them to make amazing images and videos. With this video series and the new community on Google+, Nikon is there to support photographers as they explore visual storytelling and tap into their creative potential.”
The first video in the series will be go live on March 11 on the Nikon YouTube channel and the new NikonUSA Google+ page. A new video on a different topic will be posted every couple of weeks to both the YouTube channel and Google+ page for viewers to check out.
Thank you to Jason Bradley and David Butow who presented their work to captive audiences on Friday and Saturday evenings.
As part of our grand opening festivities here at Camera West in Walnut Creek, we invited Jason and David to show us their work and talk to us about their photography. Both Jason and David have very unique and different styles and it was great to see their images and hear about what motivated them as photographers.
Also a big thank you to everyone who came out Friday and Saturday evenings to join us in the presentations!

A big thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate our grand opening in our new store space last night!
It was a chance for all of us here at Camera West to show off our premier, one-of-a-kind retail space and Leica Boutique and what better way to do that than throw a party for all of you who have supported us through the years?
Wine, champagne, tasty hors d’oeuvres and wonderful conversation – a GREAT evening – thank you for sharing it with us.
Join Michael for a new twist (literally!) on shooting fireworks.
The technique we will practice is a unique one. Rather than just letting the fireworks paint our image, we will change our focus during the exposure, getting the unusual effects you see in these photos.
We will be shooting the fireworks show after the Oakland A’s game at the Coliseum. You will not need to buy a ticket for the game as we will not be in the stadium. The fireworks show happens after the game.
What to bring :
A digital camera that will allow you to shoot in bulb and manual focus mode
A manual focus lens – wide angle to 50mm range
A remote release
A neutral density filter – 3 stops would be ideal. A polarizer can work in a pinch.
