Unsociable

I realised last Saturday that I am an antisocial photographer. Or maybe unsociable is a kinder way of putting it. Either way, I am not sociable once I have a camera in my hand. It was my big day out to a photography event at the local Birds of Prey centre last weekend, and the evening before it suddenly struck me that everyone else would know more than me and I would look, not to put too fine a point on it, stupid. I also realised that I would have to be sociable whilst taking photographs,... continue reading

Backyard Photography

I spend a lot of time outdoors photographing. Sometimes driving for over an hour, then hiking deep into the forest to find that special image that every art director will want to buy (or at least that is my hope!).Lately, though, time and weather have not been cooperating with me.Because of this, I have found that I have been overlooking a treasure in my own backyard.Siting on my deck one evening I noticed all the activity on and around my deck.I grabbed my camera and started shooting.... continue reading

My bird photos

If I have to choose one subject as my favorite, it is nature photography. Unfortunatly birds are not very much into modelling, and you need to wake up early to catch them. So most of my bird portraits are a bit noisy. That makes every bird photos of mine accepted even more precious. Here are a few: green woodpecker (taken in Vienna, Austria) Sharp-shinned hawk (taken in NH, USA) Hoopoe (taken in Hungary) continue reading

Birds seen on coastal beaches

The summer is approaching ... many people often go on holiday to the seaside resorts. It is known that in such places you can relax doing nothing (lying, swimming sunbathing) ... But for a person who is a photographer is also a great opportunity to develop their own hobby. On the beaches there are many interesting phenomena, there are also many interesting animals. Many birds can be interesting for shooting.        continue reading

My First Upload

Photography has always been a hobby. But old technology meant expense of films, processing and printing which made this hobby very expensive. But today with the new cameras, I could go back to my hobby with a vengeance.I have been clicking photos at the various places I visit and now have a huge collection. This is my favourite of all the photos in a place called Bhigwan. It was more than a year back and the visit was particularly to spot the pink Flamingos. But deficit rainfall resulted in less... continue reading

Bringing in the Birds

Blue Birds are beautiful, but shy . . . they feed in my lawn regularly and I wanted very much to capture a few photos of them. The question was how to get close enough with the camera gear I own to get a good picture.First I established a feeding area near my house. I used an old plant pedestal (keeps them out of reach of the neighboring cats) and an old china plate from a thrift store. Meal worms are a great favorite of Blue Birds so that was my food of choice.In only a few days the... continue reading
