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?

God, commanded the light to shine out of the darkness...
II Corinthians 4:6
I am practicing existing light on this portrait..It was cold, and windy outside so I decided to do this SP inside the house where it was warm. The only lights that I used were the dressing table lamps and a light on the ceiling. I am reading an old issue of Reminisce Magazine. Some of the stories are rather interesting of days gone by with pictures, etc.

    What a perfect magazine to be perusing for this shot! Together with the low lighting make a lovely sepia effect, albeit with a little color.

    The lighting is wonderful, and gives a vintage look that goes really well with your theme. Excellent work, Andrea. You have gotten to be a real expert in staging and shooting your SPs.
