Q: I am really into my wildlife photography but cannot afford a super zoom lens, I have a 300mm and am considering a teleconvertor. Has anybody had a experience with these and would you recommend them?

A: Do you know?

One of my adult students asked my why his pictures of Stonehenge didn't look that interesting. I asked him what time of day he took them. He said it was about 11:00 in the morning. I said, “Well, that’s your problem. It’s hard to get interesting photographs of a site like Stonehenge in the middle of the day. The light is much more interesting in early morning or late day when the sun casts long shadows and the color of the light is warmer.” “But the tour bus didn’t get there until 11:00 o’clock,” he objected. “You’re not going to get the most interesting photographs if you have to take them on the tour bus’ schedule,” I told him.

    I hate tours!! The crowds are a pain and the timing is always wrong! It is so much better to get out and explore!! Great shot!
