David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

Indoor Fall Nature in New Jersey.

As I was going out to try to do some night sky photography, this large brown moth flew into the house. After getting the camera on the deck going, I took the oportunity to use one of my macro lenses that was along on both of my previous trips, but never used. Also used a SB-910 flash that was along and not used — at least the batteries were still charged. This was all done hand-held while sitting on a ladder to get close. Auto-focus with the D4 even with low light and at f/29 was good.
