Finding light on the darkest of days – the skill of a wedding photographer is being able to use their equipment to work with the light, even when there’s barely any available.
We challenged some of Europe’s most #inspiring wedding photographers to use the #NikonZ7 , #NikonZ6 and #NIKKORZ lenses, to demonstrate their own #PursuitOfLight . From the depths of the Scottish Highlands, this dramatic photo was taken by @thekitcheners who put the Nikon Z 6 and the NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.8S to the test in the most extreme of conditions. This is Olivia and Brandon hiking to their ceremony spot, which the lightweight, robust, weather-proof Nikon Z system was able to capture on this wet and windy day.

Thank you Claudio! ☺️📸👍 Shot on the #NikonD4 @ approximate setting ƒ/16 | 300mm | 1/200s | ISO 280.

It took @claudiomolfino a great amount of patience to capture what is our #PhotoOftheMonth for June and it was definitely worth it! This dainty violet-tailed #sylph was captured in Mindo, Ecuador on #NikonD850 + NIKKOR 200-500 mm f/5.6 @ approximately ƒ/11 | 260 mm | 1/200s | ISO 400. The postproduction for the final image included the use of Multiflash and a series of photographs in one shot. We will be showcasing a few more from his stunning #wildlife images or follow his page to enjoy more from Claudio!
#FeelitShootit with #Nikon . A more direct take on #courage in the face of #fear is this shot by internationally renowned, award-winning photographer @jimreedphoto, best known for his images of extreme weather. Here, Jim Reed was chasing an approaching tornado in western Kansas on May 8, 2008.
Follow and enjoy more from @jimreedphoto! Here's the story behind this incredible image: 'May 8, 2008 felt like a special day from the minute I awakened. My photo assistant and I started the day early and so did this storm. It was early afternoon. Within an hour of arriving at my target area, we got to witness full tornado genesis, from the very first towering cumulus clouds to the development of this spectacular slow-moving land spout tornado. At one point, the tornado changed direction and moved straight toward us, forcing me to speedily backup. But when I stopped my vehicle, the tornado surprisingly stopped: less than 200 feet in front of us directly over the road. It just stood there, spinning, almost like it was watching us. As luck would have it, I was on assignment for Nikon and testing an early release model of the Nikon D700. I jumped out of our research vehicle, grabbed the DSLR and started shooting. I stepped back to include the vehicle in the frame to give it scale. It was one of the most memorable days of my 23-year career.' - @jimreedphoto
