Flies in Flight Test

This article features some handheld images from a recent flies in flight test I conducted in my backyard, and provides some related commentary.

Like any test session, my objective was to push myself and my camera gear so I could better understand my current capabilities, as well as identify opportunities for improvement.

Timing and Technology

Regardless of the camera gear that we may own, timing and technology both play important roles when we’re out in the field with our equipment.

For us to get the most out of our camera gear we need to understand how to best use the technology we’re holding in our hands. And, just as importantly… when to use specific features and capabilities based on our own shooting style and the subject matter before us.

This article shares some new handheld images of gulls at Forty Mile Creek and discusses how these images were captured.

Pro Capture Choices

The number of Pro Capture choices that can be created with almost every attempted image run is both incredible and addicting. After using Pro Capture H and L for a number of years now, I cannot imagine owning a camera that did not have this technology.

This article shares 15 consecutive handheld photographs of two dragonflies briefly meeting. These 15 frames were captured in a total of 1/4 of a second.

Chickadees with 75-300

This past weekend I went out to photograph some chickadees with the M.Zuiko 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II zoom lens. The majority of my images were created using Pro Capture H with the Pre-Shutter Frames and Frame Limiter both set to 15. I shot with a frame rate of 60 frames-per-second, using a single auto-focusing point.

Special Moment at ISO-10000

Back in May of this year I captured a special moment at ISO-10000 when doing a high ISO test at Biggar Lagoon Wetlands in Grimsby.  Earlier in the day I had been successful photographing swallows in flight. It was getting later in the afternoon so I decided to change my approach and try some test images of swallows at ISO-10000 before I headed for home.

Yellow-Rumped Warbler

During a recent visit to Hendrie Valley I had the opportunity to capture some photographs of a Yellow-rumped Warbler. This is a very common bird found throughout much of North America. During breeding season their range extends into the far north reaching Alaska, the Yukon, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Labrador.

Practical Limits

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.
