There are always lots of opinions about specific new camera bodies and lenses. A perpetual stream of new equipment introductions directly fuels gear acquisition syndrome, and many folks get glandular as they read about the latest and greatest technology. “Where should you put your upgrade money?” is a question on a lot of photographers’ minds these days. Continue reading Where should you put your upgrade money?
It can be daunting when one makes a decision to start a photography blog…or a blog of any sort for that matter. The first big question that enters one’s mind is whether anyone will actually read your posts. The second, and most important question, is whether you can actually provide value for readers. Continue reading A thank you to Nikon Canada for their support
I recently purchased a set of Movo extension tubes for Nikon 1 and I went out today to the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory to do a bit of fieldwork for my corresponding review. In the process of doing that work I was able to capture some unusual images that I thought I’d share with readers in advance of my extension tube review.
As many of you know I like to push things a bit from time to time and after a bit of shooting at the Conservatory I decided to link all three Movo Extension tubes together (10mm, 16mm, 21mm) to see what would happen. Well…it ended up being quite an interesting couple of hours and I was able to capture a few images of butterflies feeding. Continue reading Images of Butterflies Feeding

After a very hectic few days working on an urgent client project my wife and I decided to take a short break and head off to Point Pelee National Park. Our original intent was to capture images of migrating birds as Point Pelee is a major stopping point in the migration route of many species of birds and butterflies. Continue reading Point Pelee National Park
One of the things that I love about facilities like Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls is the variety and character of the birds. Some of them seem to have human-like qualities and I find their faces can be very expressive.
I had the opportunity on Wednesday to visit Bird Kingdom with two of our readers, Don and Janice Berman, and spend a number of very enjoyable hours photographing various bird specimens. My focus with my most recent visit was to get as many tight-in images as I could – bird portraitures – for lack of a better description. Continue reading Bird Portraiture
