Thanks, Cheese&Apple. You got the evening right, but my chivalrous husband provided the tripod after mine gave up the ghost. He inspected the damage and then insisted that I soldier forward with his tripod instead. There was a time when a gentleman would throw his cloak over a puddle so that a lady could tread forward without incident. I think perhaps this situation was the modern-day equivalent.

Realy nice capture C&A. The grey background makes all the other colors pop, and those Cedars are such beautifull birds. I love the mask in their faces.

Were there many of them at the same location? They are often in large groups and they move fast from tree to tree.

Just a drive-by post while I cook lunch...


My new Bronco, I just bought it yesterday. It has 145k on the clock and appears to be well cared for. At $1800, it's the most I've paid for a car in over a decade!

Absolutely breathtaking Phras. I really love the lined texture in the snow, just like swale patterns in broad-scale Permaculture!

Fantastic composition and capture Peter, we don't have anything similar here at all. I'm a sucker for masked birds too.

I don't think I've posted this one before, apologies if I have. Close up of the side of a discarded olive press.

And before I go to bed, I leave you with... Sad Santa.

I caught just the right (or wrong) candid moment of my local mall Santa today. I didn't even realize how great the facial expression was until I went back to look over my shots from the day. Super-artistic? No. Meme-worthy? I think so.

We got our xmas tree setup today,so I grabbed my nifty-fifty pancake and had some fun.



The seven blades make for some pleasant light flare.

Thank you gentlemen...this is high praise indeed.

Rowbear, there was a large group of the Cedar Waxwings perched high in an adjacent tree (way beyond my lens reach). I was lucky to find the last tree in Muskoka to still have fruit by mid October. The Waxwings were careful, timid and a bit of a challenge to capture...unlike the pair of Pine Grosbeaks that were chowing-down with wild abandon (I could have reached-out and plucked one of them from the tree if I was so inclined).

I have to say..it was such a good afternoon.

Peter

I title this one "Happiness". Our thirteen year old twin boys do smile occasionally, promise.

My 21st at the weekend and it was a good chance to setup a photobooth. Yes my idea of fun on my 21st is to take pictures of all my friends!

I hired out 2 flash heads with umbrellas from Uni and bought a 2.72m Colorama Storm Grey backdrop.

I really liked the effect and will be shooting some headshots and more "lit" shots over the christmas break but for the party I just did a rough key and fill.

Interested to know what you think?

I like shots like this. What do you have to bump the ISO to to grab an exposure?

Looks like a nice, simple setup and a lot of fun. I'm hoping to buy some modifiers soon so I can work on this kind of stuff myself. Can you give a few more details about what lights you used and how you triggered them? I'm still trying to decide what I want to get for myself.

Oh yeah, and happy birthday!

Love this (as usual). Lots of nice stuff in this thread lately.
I haven't had much time to shoot anything this past couple of weeks. Plus I've hit the old "rut" lately. Can't wait to get back out there. You folks are an inspiration.
