  • Getting The Feel For My Nikon D600

    Wild rooster I think. Was hanging out in the park
    Not sure which bird, but looks majestic.

    Hi guys,

    Decided to upload some of the most recent pics. Just getting used to my new D600, she’s a beast! Every pictures is taken with the stock 28-300 mm Nikkor lens at HQ and all advanced setting at auto. It’s hard to tell the difference when all pics are sized to fit the post, so feel free to open them up in full screen. My personal favorites from these five are the butterfly and the crane. Enjoy!

    Goose or duck. You tell the difference. But that D600 quality never fails

  • Wedding Photography Gig Was A Success!

    Let me begin by saying that I don’t usually enjoy taking pictures of other people getting married, especially since I’m single and they tend to “show affection” quite a bit at those events, but this time was completely different.

    Before I go any further with the story though, I want to give a shout out to Jason, the driver of the limousine from the limousine rental hired by Franklin, for saving my butt out there. I felt like a total amateur when both of my batteries died 5 minutes before the actual ceremony. Jason, happened to have a Nikon on him and gave me his spare battery. If you’re reading this, shoot me a message at admin@fredyoungphotography.com and I’ll take you out for drinks.
    For whatever reason the company doesn’t give out driver’s contact information and I want you to know that you’re the man!…

  • My New Nikon D600

    Hi guys! Just wanted to give everyone an update. Christmas came early for me this year!

    I’ve just purchased a brand new Nikon D600! By “just” I mean yesterday, and I have been taking pics non stop since I got home. This camera is amazing!

    I already knew that I wanted a Nikon for my next DSLR and as I was doing my research, price shopping, comparing all the different models out there and even thinking about buying a Canon instead, I’ve stumbled upon a flyer from a local camera store. The deal was 20 percent off that particular model! I’m just a regular guy who happened to love photography more than anything, so as you can imagine, I’m not a Richie rich. The camera isn’t the top of the class or the newest model, in fact it has been out for a couple of years now, however, you can look up the stats on Wiki and compare it to some other products on the market to see how competitive it is in terms of it’s features and of course the price.…

    It all started when I was 8 years old…

    I remember it as if it was yesterday, maybe not as clearly but you get the point. My mom and I we’re in the kitchen one day after eating lunch, I was helping her wash the dishes, probably for the first time ever since I was a bit of a lazy kid. So, I’m washing and my mom is drying and me, being the child that I was, I started playing with soap and water, splashing my mom and you know, being me. I remember spinning up the water and soap in the blender and when it got super foamy, I poured it into the sink.


    I kept on playing with the blender and the second time I poured it back, it bounced off of a plate and bubbles flew into the air. The sink was positioned directly in front of the window and the sunlight penetrated one of the bigger bubbles.…
