Which camera? A question for the ages! Why did the chicken cross the road?
As mentioned, the camera you have in your hands at the moment is the one. Notice I did not say the "best" one, just the one!
I imagine when Rembrandt was painting people would ask, "which brushes, which oils, which canvas?"
As "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," an "artists achievements come from the soul!"
Saw a video, showed making a lamp shade from wood.
Wood piece was 14 - 16 inches in diameter and 12 - 14 inches long. Attached to a turning frame "scooped" out the inside, using a light to gauge thickness. Wood grain made a beautiful shade!
Your idea is and looks great.
With the internet is is very easy to plan a trip without guides. Depending upon what you are interested in, Alaska offers free guides. My favorites are Seward, Anchorage, Talkeetna and Denali. Alaskan Railroad is a great way to see the interior.
As already mentioned, take the camera you are most familiar with. Please do not go with aspirations of capturing NatGeo type wildlife images.
On my trip through Denali National Park we saw grizzles, moose, wolf, caribou and ground squirrels.
Please do not wait to enjoy the scenery and vistas whe you return home. Put down the camera and enjoy Alaska.
Been to Alaska twice and would suggest the 17 - 55 & 70 - 300.
For wildlife, unless you want the scars to prove, it stay alert.
Often times bears, moose will show when you least expect them. If you take the Denali tour some will be side the road, others mile away. 70-300 would be my choice on tours inland and 17-55 for shipboard, touristy shots.
Have a great trip.
Saw wedding photos recently and lighting was poor, photo of seated couple featured a light pole growing out of the brides head. Quality was average to poor. Artistic photography has gone the way of the "57' Chevy!"
Guess I was wrong, my apologies!
I remember being at JFK in one of the terminals and looking "nose to nose" with a 747 and I was on the 3rd or 4th floor. An amazing sight.
"LOL LOL LOL" Gotta add that one to the top five!
As a new "old" member I am looking for help in improving my eye and technique. I care less about what brand camera or lens was used to take an image or how much post processing.
(To be honest some of the post processing looks like paintings on velvet or aluminum foil.)
If that's your "bag", fine Guess I am old school.
I would like to see more attention paid to improving everyone's images.
Maybe have assistance in processing. Select odd ball subjects using numbers, letters or combinations.
Squares, circles, triangles. Colors, reflections. Holidays can be celebrated in images.
Anything to get people out of their comfort zones. To capture something other than barns, birds, animals and flowers.
In any hobby or avocation growth is necessary for success.
Realize I'm late to the party! Is this on I-10?
Practice on your family with sun from different directions.
The "debt" ceiling is a misnomer! A ceiling represents a solid, immovable object. Washington elects to "raise" the amount of debt dependent upon the amount necessary to continue as a nation.
Think of a family relying upon credit card companies raising the "ceiling" on their cards. Comes a time when the ceiling is raised for the last time.
America is fast approaching the "last time!"
