It was 20 years ago today that I got downsized from my corporate marketing job, and began the rest of my life. Many of us have gone through this type of journey. And, many of us are facing challenges in our lives right now.
This article features a selection of photographs of gulls with cluster area C-AF. I captured these images this morning during mainly overcast conditions. An earlier article, Ducks Using Cluster Area C-AF, was my first attempt using the cluster area continuous auto-focus capability (C-AF) of my OM-D E-M1X. Rather than push this feature to an extreme, I used it as if this was just a typical outing to photograph birds-in-flight.
This article features a small selection high ISO heron in-flight images. As regular readers will know, I often push my camera gear past what can reasonably be expected, simply to see what will happen.
This article shares a selection of Wyoming landscape images that were captured handheld during a self-drive photography tour we did through South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah and Colorado a few years ago. We were on a pretty tight schedule and covered 10,187 km (~6,330 miles) during our 26 day trip. Unfortunately we didn’t have much time to spend in Wyoming.
This article features 16 consecutive photographs of a tern in mid-air at 60 fps. These images were captured handheld using a Nikon 1 V2 and a 1 Nikkor 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6 telephoto zoom lens.
Yesterday I was out photographing ducks using cluster area C-AF. Being new to Olympus I had no idea that this mode of continuous auto-focus was available. After watching a video on using cluster area C-AF that Robin Wong posted, I decided to give it a try.
Sometimes it’s good to step back and remind ourselves of the miracles of digital photography, and the power this technology gives us to control the outcome of our work.
This article features a selection of images of an injured swallowtail in flight. All were captured handheld in my backyard.
This short article shares a selection of perched and flying chickadees at ISO-6400, photographed using Olympus camera gear. Obviously using a high ISO is not ideal… but I love these little birds and I do what it takes to get my images.
This lengthy article provides a summary of some of the actions that a photographer can take to practice handheld shot discipline. Many of the actions would also apply to folks who use tripods or monopods. Shot discipline is all about making sure that our camera gear is ready. That we know how to use it to best effect. That we use good camera technique. And, that we remain calm and focused.
