Practise wildlife photography in a Zoo

Visiting a zoo is indeed a very wonderful experience. During my son's school holidays we visited a famous zoo here in Australia. It is the Australia Zoo located in a peaceful town of Beerwah in Queensland.This zoo is huge at a size of about 40 hectares. They have a transport system inside the zoo as the place is so huge it will take you longer if you prefer to walk around the place.The zoo have a wide range of birds, mammals and reptiles. There are also exhibits that gives you more information... continue reading

lens stress

Am I the only photographer who suffers from lens stress/envy/anxiety? I'm slowly nearing the 100 photos landmark with dreamstime and up until recently have made do with one lens; the tamron 17 -50 f2.8 (non IS) which has served me very well.I have always known I would need to get some kind of telephoto as a logical next step and finally I went for a canon EF 70 - 300 a couple of months ago. It has taken me several years of indecision and procrastination to take this step, mainly because I couldn'... continue reading

Review: 70-200 4L USM

I debated long and hard before buying this lense.It cost more than I had ever spent on glass before.And what I really wanted was the f2.8.But, if I went with the 2.8, I knew that I would need IS due to the weight of the lense and that added significantly to the cost.Plus, it was heavier to lug around and I love going outdoors and getting nature shots.So, I compromised and treated my self to the f4.To help you understand where my review might or might not fit your skill level and... continue reading

What I Wish I Knew Before Going on Safari, Part 2

Before I went on safari, I sought advice on what to take from every source I could find--discussion boards, books, friends who had done a lot of nature photography. . .Over and over, I was advised to take the longest lens I could, and to get a teleconverter to extend that lens even further.I listened to this advice, and it turned out to be useful.What I always never heard, though, was the suggestion that I take a wide angle lens.The advice I got (or at least the advice I listened to!... continue reading

Canon EF 70-200 F/4 L USM Review

Canon 70-200 F/4 L is said to be one, if not THE, of the best lenses Canon ever produced. I've bought it a few days ago, and I can estabilish they talked well. This lens is AWESOME.The IS one is even better because of the stabilizer, but the optic scheme is the same.Let's view it in the detail.First, the body of this lens is white. Or should I say beije. Anyway, it's not the usual black. Every Canon L telephoto lens is white, and there's a reason: L lens all have a metal body, and if you use... continue reading

Sigma 70-300 APO MACRO DG F/4-5,6 Review

Hi guys, it's my first article, I hope you to appreciate it. So, let's talk about this lens.Many amateur photographers before or later come to buy this lens: it's cheap, and several websites state it to be an excellent compromise by adding a (relatively) good quality image to a very low price (don't really know how much it costs in USA... here you can find it at about 150 dollars, new).I used it a lot, in the past on the EOS 350D, and now on my 40D, and I think I know very well this lens to help... continue reading

Worth Every Penny

I have been debating the purchase of the Canon 300 mm f2.8L IS for a while now.I finally took the plunge (I wish I had stock in B&H!).So far, I could not be happier.I've had just a few opportunities to see what it can do, but the clarity is unrivaled, at least in my experience.In fact, sometimes I see almost too much detail.Check out the dandruff on this cormorantFor subjects without dandruff (and even for those that do!), the level of detail I can capture is opening up new possibilities.... continue reading
