This is a .... PHONE!

04 April 2019 - 04:24 PM

Show one of these to a millennial if you want to have a good laugh and ask, 

 

"Do you know what this is? Think you can make a phone call with it?"

 

:lol:

 

It's like playing one of those puzzle games.

 

Nikon D850

Nikkor 105mm f2.8G

Tripod

 

A whole bunch of foam core, diffusers, natural light and timed exposure.

 

The key was to have no reflections on the shiny face of the black phone.

Motorcycle Racing images (VERY Image Heavy!!)

03 April 2019 - 02:37 PM

I am just recovering from what ended up being the Flu! Spent the last 4-5 days just miserable.  I have been posting a number of these on Facebook and thought I would share them here for those who do not frequent FB or Instagram.

 

All images taken at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park last August.  

 

Taken with a Nikon D5 and the Nikkor 200-400mm f4G VR lens.

Bald Eagle in Flight

30 December 2018 - 11:53 AM

This is Bruce.  He is taking over the heavy lifting from Sam, the previous star at the CRC.  Bruce dived bombed my and my friend.  Apparently, he mistook me for the owner.  We have that same full bodied, good looking physique and where the same type of wardrobe.   :lol:  For a second, I thought of putting up my arm and letting him perch, but quickly ducked instead.  Don't need to have my arm in a caste for the next 6 weeks. I am sure he has a death grip!

 

The first image below is him zeroing in on me! I very quickly started to wonder what the hay he was doing because he kept dropping altitude and coming closer and closer without moving!  Thrilling as his just missed us, flying over head. These birds are huge, you don't really realize it unless they are 2 feet above your head with their wings spread wide!

Great Horned Owl in Flight

Great Horned Owl.  

 

These are beautiful as well.  I love the look of most Owls. Again, these are shot in high ISO.  It was very heavily overcast.

Barred Owl Portrait

30 December 2018 - 11:45 AM

Another gorgeous owl, he is perched inside a wooded area with some light coming through the back. Almost gives it a stained glass effect.  The sessions at CRC include a number of Raptors you can shoot perched and a number that they fly.
