  1. Trond, the quality of your photos would suggest that you are a professional photographer – is this correct? If not, how do you find the time to plan, travel to your various locations and wait for the perfect shot? Your images are very impressive. I look forward very much to seeing every video you produce. Your calm, precise commentary makes every video a pleasure to watch.

  2. Hei Trond. I'm happy that I came across your videos. I lived in Trondheim for a couple years but I didn't have the opportunity to explore as much as I would have liked. One day I'll visit again.
    I just have Photoshop at the moment. Is there a big difference between editing only in Photoshop vs Lightroom with Photoshop? Tusen takk.

  3. I have a question for you. I use D500+ 500mm pf

    I handheld while birds are perched. I use single point autofocus. In such cases, I don't want to bump up my shutter speed so I keep it low somewhere in between 650 or 850. I have back button focus enabled and so when I focus on the subject, the focus locks+ vr engaged. Since because the subject is not moving, I release the focus button so it just keep it locked and I fire the shutter button. The Issue here is that the VR is dis engaged because It works only when I keep pressing the back button autofocus. I don't get great images. Can you please share me your thoughts.
