“A New Day” by David Shield

What equipment do you use? Nikon D700 and Nikon D7000 / Nikon lenses plus one Tokina lens / Manfrotto Tripod / Giottos Ballhead / Cable Release / Singh-Ray ND Grads with Cokin Holder

What is your favorite image and why? Truthfully, it is hard to choose a favorite image, because I always like to think that my favorite image is yet to be capture. I like my image entitled “A New Day” simply because I enjoy the scene so much, and have also been very pleased with the many positive comments I have received about it.

What is one piece of advice you would tell an aspiring landscape photographer? First and foremost; learn how to operate your equipment! For Landscape Photographers; do not underestimate the importance of first scouting the area you plan to shoot. Knowing the exact spot you need to be and when, will give you a better chance of capturing the moment you envisioned.

Thanks David!
