First Post! Bison in Wyoming

First time poster, but user of Canon for the last few years. I recently went on a trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming - which is BEYOND beautiful - and got lucky enough to capture these bison against the Grand Teton mountain range. Shortly after taking thi...

FD lens

So you want to try your old FD lenses?  Fine but remember it is totally manual. Yes, we actually had to set everything and focus too.  How did we ever get a shot?  Yes the hummingbirds all are cropped, the last one 100%. Yes hand held. Yes a tough ta...

Canon 5D IV RAW to Apple IIe image

I have an Apple IIe emulator for my Mac and wanted to start with an image I captured, scale it, convert to black & white and somehow end up with that image saved to a disk (emulator saves files representing 5 1/4" floppies). I wasn't able to figure o...

Introducing the Indigo Bunting..

 I had to share this one with you. There is a park near where I live in Ohio and every year these birds breed there. I use my 75-300mm with a vivitar 2X to make a good 600mm shot. I had taken the shot and sharpend it a little in Corel After Shot Pro....

Closeups using EF 100-400mm L II

I shoot mainly birds, but often get the opportunity to shoot butterflies and other small insects and flowers. The close focusing of the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM II allows me to get some very nice cloeups. When shooting close in, I like to use ...

Lens and tele-extenders

While using the telescope last week I thought it would be interesting to also see how a Canon long lens performed for lunar photography with and without extenders.  I believe the focus is dead on with these, for the EF 800 combo I used AF where possi...

First attempt at using telescope for lunar photography

Without sports to shoot, I have been delving into other areas of photography.  The weather was finally nice during the evening and I used my 1DX III with a T adapter and my Celestron CPC 1100 Edge HD telescope (11" SCT type).  It looks like something...

Astonishing: 40D Af tops 77D AF

  Not the greatest image because the background is disturbing. Shot with the old 40D. We met the heron at a water castle and the only tele lens we had in the bag that day was the 55-250mm kit lens, the newer version, not availabe as the 40D was produ...

Portrait with a Canon D60

Yes, that is the right way round... it's not the 60D.   I had purchased a Canon EOS D30 as a historical artifact and found that it took excellent images.   So when a D60 came available I decided to lash out and purchase a unit in excellent condition ...

High speed shutter fun

This is the only time I used the 1/8000 maximum shutter speed of the 1DX III.  The first three images are of a water balloon shot by a 22 rifle and the second set of four are of German Shepherd Cheyenne who has loved to attack streams of water since ...

Lock-Down Images

If, like me, you are constrained to your home and the immediate environs, then you are probably trying to find inspiration for some shots. My daughter found this little character hiding under some of our garden chairs. It's the New Zealand Weta, whic...

Fun portrait photos

Because of the pandemic the school asked parents to provide head shots of their students wearing their sports jerseys so that the school can create composite team photos.  I set things up to take some serious photos of my daughter in her soccer jerse...
