Working within practical limits is something that we all face on a regular basis, regardless of the camera gear that we may own. Rather than blindly accept what other people think the practical limits of specific piece of photographic equipment may be, it is important for each of us to do our own experimentation. This enables us to establish what we consider to be the practical limits of various components of our integrated camera systems based on our photographic style, image use, and our individual skill sets.
This article discusses a BIF fast response practice exercise that I do on a periodic basis as well as sharing some recent images captured during one of these practice sessions.
This article features a selection of handheld photographs of birds-in-flight using the EM-1X’s little brother, i.e. the EM-1 Mark III. All images were captured using the M.Zuiko 75-300 mm f/4.8-6.7 II utilizing Cluster Area C-AF. I used this lens and auto-focus setting as I thought it was a combination that some folks would use with this choice of camera body.
Choosing bird photography gear includes reviewing many factors in order for us to make the best decision for our specific needs. This article outlines some of the issues that can be considered before we invest our hard-earned money. Bird photography gear can be expensive, and costly mistakes can be made without a proper needs assessment. Grab a cup of coffee and settle in, this is a lengthy article.
This article features a small collection of kitchen window raptor photographs that were captured over the past several days. We just started a 28 day ‘stay at home’ order issued by the Ontario government so our ability to create new photographs will be limited for the next month or so.
This article shares a selection of images captured handheld using the E-M1X’s Bird AI with the M.Zuiko 75-300 mm f/4.8-6.7 II zoom lens.
Since selling my full frame camera gear back in July 2015 I’ve had the opportunity to use a few different smaller sensor birding equipment options. Continue reading Smaller Sensor Birding Equipment Options
This article discusses the practical aspects of substituting foliage for birds when we are out with our cameras. In late October I was doing some field testing with our newly acquired M.Zuiko 75-300 mm f/4.8-6.7 II zoom lens at Hendrie Valley. For much of my hike my feathered friends were simply not cooperating and nowhere to be found. So, substituting foliage for birds made sense.
This article shares a selection of recent OM-D E-M1 Mark III bird images. All were captured handheld at Hendrie Valley using the M.Zuiko 75-300 mm f/4.8-6.7 II zoom lens.
