Ants Dragging Dinner Home

It is amazing what we can find to photograph right at our feet. I was out just before dinner today trying to photograph some ants. Not having any extension tubes or a macro lens with me made this a bit of a creative challenge. After experimenting for a little while, I noticed some ants dragging dinner home across my cement walk. I was intrigued. As is often said… small things amuse small minds.

Working with Small Sensor ISO-10000 Images

This article shares three examples of working with small sensor ISO-10000 images in post. It is good to remember that any time we do work with RAW files it is ‘to taste’. You may, or may not, like the results that are illustrated in this article. At the end of the article, I will be sharing some basic guidelines of the approach I used with these photographs.

E-M1X Swallows in Flight Images

On Saturday of this past weekend I spent about 2.5 hours photographing swallows in flight. As readers who enjoy bird photography can attest, capturing images of these small ‘pocket rockets’ is a very challenging pastime. Saturday was the most successful swallows-in-flight photography outing that I have ever had. Rather than share just a smattering of photographs, this article contains a total of 24 E-M1X swallows in flight images. I could have shared a lot more… but I thought 2 dozen images would be plenty for this posting.

Grimsby Harbour Sunrise

As is often the case, I was up before dawn this morning and working in my office. I happened to look out from my second floor window towards Lake Ontario and saw some incredible colours developing. I quickly grabbed a camera and headed out to capture a few images of a Grimsby harbour sunrise.
