I did something the other day I haven't done for years. I had noticed a LOT of bee activity on some of the flowers in our yard so I stuck my Sigma 150mm macro lens on the old 7D Mark II and went out to try my hand at capturing the little guys in flight. Man that was a challenge for the old hand-eye coordination! Here are my 2 favourite images!
I went up to Parksville to photograph the Canada Day Fireworks. What had been a reasonably nice day turned into a cold, howling windstorm with some precipitation thrown in for good measure! About half the crowd left before the fireworks and those that stayed were huddled under blankets and umbrellas and whatever other shelter they could find. I only took 6 or so images before I simply surrendered and turned my camera off and watched the show with everyone else. Talk about a fair weather photographer!
Sean Sherstone and I got together for another night photography/light painting session last night. This time we chose the Kinsol Trestle in Cobble Hill as our subject. It was a beautiful night and we had a lot of fun experimenting. And we were serenaded by some awesome house music coming from a rave/dance somewhere down on the Koksilah River! After editing some of my images today I'm kind of freaking out about shooting 30 second exposures at 1600 iso with in-camera noise reduction turned of and not needing any post processing noise reduction #sonya7III #crazysensor
