How are you doing with your Nikon? Just to give you a idea of the rage of my equipment thought I would share these: just a few of my cameras ;)

Behind the Scene

. Have a great day.. --WPPilot (talk) 04:16, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Hi WPPilot: You take the most gorgeous photos. I am just totally depressed about mine. I haven't touched the since those July photos. The results it produces are strange and not at all what I'd expect. There's just so doggone many buttons and by the time I read 3 pages in the manual I just want to go to sleep. I used to do fine with film cameras, but this Nikon is like trying to fly a space_shuttle with chopsticks and it weighs a lot too, so it's unlikely to get carried around or be the "go to" camera for daily photos. If I lived somewhere interesting, I might find it more fun to use, but the same old house and garden... how many pictures one needs of that anyway? Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:00, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
Don't get frustrated, I know Cameras can be complicated. If the Nikon is "heavy" you might want to look at what are called Micro 4/3rds, same quality just about at half the size. I have one a Panasonic GH 4 that is great and has become my goto camera, when I am just out and about. There is beauty on every corner of the world, you just need to learn, how to find it in your minds eye. Try "Macro" photos. Close up on Nature, water drops rolling off flowers do not get frustrated and watch the training videos, as any book Nikon publishes will be worthless, watch the videos about it for a quicker jumpstart. --WPPilot (talk) 20:09, 20 October 2016 (UTC)
Try this, The Orionid Meteor Shower Peaks Overnight tonight. I know its a bit cloudy up north about now BUT try to capture the The Orionid Meteor Shower with your camera. If you have stix/tripod mount the camera on it. You are going to shoot this, in Manual mode to learn "some of those dials". On the longest lens you have open the Aperture (that is the ring nearest the camera body) to the lowest number on it. Next your going to push (rolling the little wheel on the right of the rear camera body) your going to roll the ISO up till, in the viewfinder you can see the stars on the screen. Now your camera is ready. The ISO is going to change as you practice and lowering it will create a longer streak from the Meteor Shower in the final photo. LMK if you have any questions, I might shoot it too so your invited to e mail me your number and I will call and talk you through the process if you like. I am not that busy today so I do not mind at all! Don't be shy ask questions and don't let the poor camera just sit there, you enjoy beauty far too much to let that happen :) --WPPilot (talk) 20:37, 20 October 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the kind words, WPPilot! But right now it looks like [1] only brighter because there's supposed to be sun still up. Maybe it will clear tonight, but they're calling for solid fog until morning. I'll keep an eye out though, if it was like two nights ago (before the moon came up) it would be crystal clear. Cheers!

Your quite welcome, I have found this for you, don't take its title personally but this will really help understand, "all the buttons and dials" : - I suggest that you print it out. Use the foggy night to get comfortable with your camera. You will enjoy it I am sure. Start be learning the "modes" using to command dial. Its not that hard and, if you can figure out Wikipedia, el, al, the camera is a piece of cake: --WPPilot (talk) 00:38, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Need your practical help

@Ellin Beltz: Hello, I need your help, you are a experienced person and you a aware on many details that we discussed and friendly. Also there is a problem that I am not from Russia (language barrier). I am from the Pamirs, Tajikistan:
Regarding the authorship File:Agakhanyanc.okmir.jpg and File:Khudoyor-Yusufbekov-and-Agakhanyanc-Okmir.jpg please see the site “Hayzag” Foundation, article Agakhanyanc Okmir Egishevich = Агаханянц Окмир Егишевич - section Miscellaneous where it is indicated that: Author of the submitted materials and photographs is Khurshed Khudoyorovich Yusufbekov = “Автор присланных материалов и фотографий - Хуршед Худоерович Юсуфбеков” + as a confirmation today I got a letter: Letter from the site - Agakhanyans Okmir Egishevich “Hayzag” Foundation To: today, 0:11 = “Кому: сегодня, 0:11” (20 October 2016) – if necessary I can put the copy of the letter on the discussion page (“Hayzag" = "Хайазг” Foundation even ready to remove the article with photo in order to not have problem in Wikimedia).
Regarding the other two photographs ([File:Okmir Agakhanyanc (right side)-and-Khudoyor Yusufbekov his sons Khurshed-Isfandiyor.jpg]]; [File:Khudoyor Yusufbekov (right side) his son Khurshed-Okmir Agakhanyanc-Isfandiyor Yusufbekov (left side).jpg]]), where I am with my father Yusufbekov, my brother and Agakhanyanc - source is indicated for this 2 photos as temporary during the discussion period (Ellin Beltz with which you are in contact and is informed of the detail, also as well as INeverCry) on Discussion page Commons:Undeletion_requests (Author:Shabdolov Charogabdol – photographed by my late cousin with my camera, indicated - Source: Temporarily for Commons:Undeletion_requests – during the discussion did not delete them, seems that it was decided that they are part of explanation if anyone has question or doubts. Regarding File:A view of the Soviet High School-established in 1936.jpg and [File:Amdinov family.jpg]] these are harmless photographs, if included into in corrected category, please correct it. Regarding my self photograph [File:Maksumov.akbar.jpg]] - close friend of our family, my father’s ally, Where the author of this statement - “the author of the photos are not only known, the photo can be unfree” probably wants that the file be uploaded on as “unfree = несвободные” with whom one can agree in File:Akhunakov.akhmadkhan.jpg a source is indicated where it is uploaded several years ago, corrected today as [PD-Russia]]? Please help me to correct the issues, as you are more competent on this field and want to close this chapter once for all. Respectfully, Khurshed.yusufbekov (talk) 09:21, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
