Today, Nikon announced a new fast prime portrait lens, the AF-S 105mm f/1.4E ED Nikkor. This is a super-fast lens that should deliver amazing bokeh when used at or near its maximum f/1.4 aperture. It is designed to cover FX (full-frame) Nikon sensors, but will approximate a 161mm telephoto lens if you use it on a DX Nikon DSLR, such as the Nikon D500.

Join me September 22-25 for an urban-themed location workshop in Denver, Colorado. On this tour, we’ll explore the Colorado capitol with an emphasis on art and architecture. The late September weather in Denver is perfect for evening/twilight shooting, too.
I have arranged for discounted lodging in downtown Denver within walking distance of most of our locations, including:
- Colorado Capitol & Courthouse Buildings
- Denver Art Museum
- Union Station & 16th Street Promenade
- RINO Art District (street art near Coors Field)
- Denver Botanical Gardens
- Denver City Park
If you’re looking to experience urban creativity with your camera, then this is a great photo safari for you. We will learn long exposures, blue hour shooting, multiple exposures, texture blending, and more in the Mile High City.
Instructor: Jason Odell
Limit: 10 Photographers
RSVP HERE by August 22nd for discounted lodging at the group hotel

Most fireworks displays are under 30 minutes in duration, so you’ll want to be prepared!

Here’s a shot I got in south Texas using the 200-500mm f/5.6E VR Nikkor near its minimum focus distance of 2.2 meters, showing the good magnification you can get with this lens, especially on a DX Nikon body like the D500. This image is un-cropped, and wouldn’t have been possible with a standard 500mm telephoto without extension tubes.Share This Story
