Photo Friday: Majestic Birds

June 2, 2017

This time of the year is perfect for capturing snowy egrets, and one finally got close enough for me to get a great shot.  If you’ve ever tried to shoot these birds, and ended up with a white blob, the secret is to under expose it by one stop; it makes all the difference.

Photo Friday: No Tripod, No Problem

May 22, 2015

Today’s photos have one thing in common; they were all taken in low light situations, and I didn’t have a tripod handy.  OK, that’s two things; whatever, but the point is I was able to keep my camera steady using whatever was available.  I used a light pole, picnic bench, a rock, and the post on a dock, to get these shots.  One other thing they all have in common; they were all taken with a simple point and shoot camera, which I carry with me everywhere.
