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.

Deer in My Backyard.

The deer right now are pretty scrawny, waiting for plants to start growing after winter. They don’t eat the daffodils, but will start going after shrubs and newly planted gardens. Image two was taken with a Nikon 1 V2 using FT1 adapter and the new 80-400 mm VRII lens. This was taken hand-held (ISO 160, 400 mm, f/5.6, 1/250 sec), the FOV equivalent to an image taken with a 1080 mm lens on a FX (35 mm DSLR camera). This is the full image, not cropped. The third image of the same deer was taken with a Nikon D4 and 600 mm f/4 VR lens (ISO 560, 600 mm, f/4, 1/2000 sec) using a tripod to stabilize the heavy lens. The image was cropped to show approximately the same view.
