d5300 nikon viewnx 2

I hope someone can help me? I am an amateur photographer and have just purchased a Nikon D5300. It came with a Nikon ViewNX 2 software CD Rom but I have a Mac which doesn't accept them! I have tried to download software directly from Nikon but it won't work. Any advice? I am using Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.13. Thank you.

How do I shoot with a speedlight the easy way?

Posted by Merco_61 in My musings on technique and sometimes technology, 02 December 2017 · 224 views

The best way to get predictable results with a speedlight is to take control over all the parameters for the ambient light.
Set the mode selector to manual.
Turn AutoISO off.
Set the aperture to what you need it to be to get the depth of field you want.
Set the ISO to the lowest setting you can and still get the flash range you need to light the main subj...

8-Week Still Life Workshop

Posted by nbanjogal in Love from My Camera, 07 February 2017 · 585 views

I recently completed an 8-week Still Life Photography workshop from Don Giannatti, one of my favorite teachers. Still life has always been difficult for me, so I appreciated having to focus on it intently. We spent eight weeks trying out different perspectives and lighting techniques with various subjects to highlight texture, dimension, and so forth.

If you were to make a list of the greatest video games ever made, the original Super Mario Bros. made for the Nintendo System would have to be towards the top of that list. Thanks to original game mechanics and challenging level designs, Super Mario Bros. was an instant classic and remains popular today—30 years later. But retro-gaming enthusiasts aren’t...

Wow, has it been this long? (Finally got a DSLR!)

Posted by JoyN87 in JoyN87's Blog, 25 July 2015 · 801 views


It's been awhile since I came to this site. I took a little break and I'm back here. I finally got a digital camera, Nikon D7100 (still good!). The camera is crisp and fantastic to enjoy, although it was incredibly complicated to use the camera for the first time. For instance, I was having a hard time to understand the buttons and the "other" sid...

So I got to shoot my first paying wedding. It was great. The couple was about as chill as can be. No B.S. to put up with. Really small wedding at the Des Moines Art Center Rose Garden. Slight drizzle all day but no problem. I had so much fun. Best part was they had the reception at the Iowa Cubs game in the skybox. Now I'm not a huge sports fan but I enjo...

My last blog was about starting a webpage, but because I am not a professional yet (hopefully some day), I wanted my next step before a website to be in the form of a blog site. I am aware that a lot of my photo's have stories behind them and I wanted to express myself further by telling those stories as well as sharing the photos online for people to see...
