Finally My Camera is Fixed :)

My Nikon D5000 recently took a crap and would not turn on.  After some waiting and messaging I finally got it back and fixed for free thanks to Nikon.  It had a bad power switch which was preventing it from turning on.  Since the weather has been quite nice for January I decided to head out with the kids and test out the camera.  It ended up being a great hike and the weather was as beautiful as the stream was.  Hope you enjoy the pics.














































































Until Next Time.........Tight Lines to All!!!!!!!!

  6. Just because your camera doesn't work doesn't mean you can't drop a post or two and let us know what's happening. We worry when we don't hear from people.

    1. They took a little while, and luckily it was covered by some type of recall effecting the power switch. I am just glad we got it back in time for the arrival of the new baby. He is due February 20th and we can't wait. He should be ready for some back packing come summer time :) Thanks for stopping by and I hope your new spot is treating you well. Tight Lines.

    1. Thanks man. I tried my wifes point and shoot camera and quickly set it back down. Not being able to control the shutter and aperture drove me crazy :) They gave it a good cleaning so now I must get back out there and dirty it up :) Tight Lines.

    1. Thanks much. I have been missing the stream side fishing, that's for sure. Feels great to get out there to check on the stream conditions. Plus it's a great time for the kid's to throw snow and rocks into the stream all they want :) Tight Lines.

  12. Wonderful images...question for you, I have the same camera and am having issues getting clear close up photos...how do you do it? What lens or setting are you using? Thanks for the input, Steve

    1. Thanks a lot. I am using the lens that came with the camera. I believe it is a 18-55mmm Nikon lens. I usually take most of my pictures in the M setting on the dial for Manual. This allows you to set both the aperture and the shutter speed. I like to use the lowest aperture setting possible, which in turn allows you to only focus on a fly and not the background. You will have to set the shutter speed accordingly so that you achieve the correct exposure. To achieve a large focus area (Depth of Field) you would set the camera to Aperture 32 and the shutter speed would be faster. To achieve a photo where you are just focused on one set object,you set the the Aperture to a low of 4, then you will have to allow for more light which mean a slower shutter speed. Make sure your flash isn't popped up when shooting in Manual because this will mess with the exposure. Also don't forget if you crop the picture before posting that also helps with getting even closer up to the object. I hope this helps. I look forward to seeing the results. Tight Lines.
