This article features a collection of images that document gull predation of a blackbird chick. Acts of predation in nature can be difficult to view. Readers who find this this type of subject matter distasteful or disturbing may choose to stop reading this posting.
This article discusses some of the factors to consider when using landscape versus portrait Pro Capture to photograph small birds taking flight. To illustrate both orientations we have included images from two Pro Capture H runs captured at Hendrie Valley yesterday. All of the photographs are displayed as 100% captures without any cropping.
This article, Nikon 1 Celebration, features a selection of my favourite Nikon 1 photographs. Even though the Nikon 1 product line was discontinued almost 2 years ago (July 2018) it remains a very capable camera system.
This article discusses how the challenge of photographing small birds-in-flight can be made easy by a combination of technology and technique. All of the photographs featured in this article were captured handheld using an Olympus OM-D E-M1X with its Pro Capture H mode.
This short article shares a selection of 9 consecutive images of a cardinal pirouette, with the bird turning around on one foot, then taking flight.
This article shares a small collection of Doolin harbour (Ireland) compositions and discusses some typical photographic challenges that can arise at rocky, seaside locations.
This article discusses macro plant composition techniques. All of the macro photographs in this posting were captured one-handed using an Olympus OM-D E-M1X with an M.Zuiko 60 mm f/2.8 macro lens.
This article shares my experiences earlier today, photographing bees one-handed using an E-M1X and M.Zuiko 60 mm f/2.8 macro lens. Finding their use too restrictive, I’ve always hated using tripods, even with macro photography. So today I decided to do something a little different from the norm.
Having a clearly defined camera system objective is critical when buying equipment. The more tightly we define our photographic needs, the more likely we are to select the right combination of components to meet our goals. This is true regardless of the camera format and brand we purchase.
Deciding what camera to buy comes down to a really simple question: What equipment makes getting your shot easiest and with the highest degree of reliability? At the end of the day nothing else matters very much.
