I think most of my pictures were at a 150mm focal length. I felt safer being further away. I didnt’ use any kind of tripod/monopod. I resized them using a batch editor but I just got photoshop and I’m going to start learning how to use it. Maybe I can get the best pictures down to a web friendly size and keep them as sharp as possible. I also found a program that can read the .nef files and output large tiff files to further edit in photoshop because for some reason photoshop won’t open the .nef files.
