Canon Thursday #32

Discussion in 'Canon EOS' started by dcstep, Aug 17, 2017.

  1. I was on an island, without internet last week, and couldn't participate. My penance is to start this week's thread. You know what to do; 1000p limit, post up to three images.

    I was on Ile-aux-Perroquets, shooting puffin in a workshop led by Canadian wildlife photographer, Christopher Dodds. I took 13,000 images and finally pared it down to less than 2-hundred images, which you can see, if you like, by clicking on any one of the images below to go to the image on my Flickr site, then click on the Puffin Extravaganza link.

  2. DCStep, 13,000 images?! I'd be cross-eyed by now after paring them down. I'll have to look at your puffins later.

  4. Nice shots of the Christening.

    Thanks, in advance, for looking at the Album.

    Shooting fast-moving puffin for three days, leads to a lot of shots. My arms were aching, after day-one. Culling is, indeed, tough work for me. When I broke through to under 200, it was a great relief. You get jaded and it takes several passes to get some semblance of balance in the final result. 200 is still a lot to ask anyone to look through. The Album is showing a respectable 150-Views and a few images have thousands of views. The main point is that I'm happy that I was able to record what I saw.
  5. Love your puffins! We used to have them here but now there is only the odd pair and I've never seen one in the wild. Amazing birds. They do look unique.

    Also, love the christening images. Looks almost like a Swedish church apart from the glass doors.

    I have a picture of one of my "crazies" who loves to show off in front of the camera since her younger brother gets all of the attention. Also, I got the lighting right on the feet picture from last week. But of course, I didn't get the same pose again.

  6. @TriggerHappy: i like this pose, the toes are more visible.
    i didn't photograph much this week, been working on another hobby.. (Recording a church organ, editing the recordings is a lot of work..)
    Been to see Ryan Adams last night (great show), didn't even bother to ask for photo permission, he was in the dark most of the show anyway. (as expected)
    Did go to the garden center today, it's raining too hard to plant the flowers.
  7. In the drups you can just make out a sunflower..

  8. No art this week, just another wet flower..
