The Wild Life

For the second day in a row I got to go out and do some wild life photography.Where I live there is a Major herd of the Beverley caribou.The migrate through town.
The Challenge from the photography view is to photograph the snow so its not all grey looking.

cold days and tech blunders

Well its a cold day here in the Arctic.This Morning I had a an opportunity to go out and shoot some Caribou.They migrate into town.They are so close that you don't need super long lens to get half way decent shots.
I shot from my car.This was an interesting exercise in how to set up for a shoot.I took my ipod and camera gear and a blanket.I shot using a cannon 75 - 300mm lens,1:4 5.6 lens.Generally I don't shoot outdoor except in summer.Its just too cold.The car provided a good stable platform and when it got too cold I could turn the heat on.I used the blanket and the window as a tripod.The blanket help cushioned the lens as I held it over the glass.On my Ipod I had a number of digital photography pod cast with tips and tricks.
The day was a lot of fun.The photos were good.
over all a great day of photography.
The tech blunders come from my computer.It seems to have a life of its own.It dose things on its own.Turns on ,off switches is good but frustrating at times.

Been a While

Well its been a while since my last post but I have kept busy.On the photography front I finished my assignment for the NWC and it went over very well.I also attended a function for my son and hosted a great supper bowl party.

I am very interested in sports photography and cant wait till the summer till I can shoot my favorite sport,racing.If every thing goes well I will be in Edmonton Alberta for the Edmonton Indy.Its a great time and hope that we can get some great shots.
