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.

  1. Comparing with the "Doe and Fawn" shot the background is really busier than with the other lens.
    But with this equipment (light and versatile) is it possible to get the rabbit so big 🙂

    +Dieter Fröhling This was before the 70-300 mm lens for the Nikon 1 system was available. Based on the sensor size on the Nikon 1, a 300 mm lens has a field of view equivaltent to 810 mm on a full frame 35 mm sensor. You are right, you could never hand hold a 810 mm lens on a full frame 35 mm body…
