Eagles Eagle Eagles!

In the last month and a half i've spent a bit of time chasing American Bald Eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) around the Bay of Islands, on the west coast of Newfoundland.

Most of this time i've spent shooting my Nikon D300 camera body, Nikkor 500Vr lens and 1.7X teleconverter, trying desperately to get within reach, sometimes successful and sometimes not!

Here is a small sample of the eagle images i've been able to create in this time period. Please click to see them at larger size and greater detail.











If you would like to purchase any of these majestic American Bald Eagle images in print please don't hesitate to contact me!

RONiN's Fundamentals of Digital Photography Course a Success!

I didn't get take many images during the course as i was more concerned about my students and how they were fairing. here are some images i got to take on the second day. thanks to anyone who's already posted some!

i just wanted to pop back in here and say a big thanks to all participants of RONiN photography's first photography course! everyone walked away having learned new techniques on exposure, focus, creative camera controls, composition and more. i have to admit that everyone seemed to be more than pleased with what i had to offer. the biggest thing i've head from participants was that the hands on portion was just fantastic. anyone can show you on paper how to do something, but taking that tool in one's hand and making it work drives home the skill.

i am going to try to offer courses every so often in my off season until June or so. i doubt that i will have much time to offer them during the wedding season as i will be extremely busy.

in the near future i will be offering courses in advanced photography techniques and also in post processing (editing images in software).

if any of you are interested in learning please don't hesitate to contact me. the only silly question is the one you don't ask! 8)

thanks again for everyone who participated! happy shooting!

Minature Effect without Tilt and Shift Lens

I had read about a new photography technique a few days back that gives the image a scale model effect (extremely small amount of image in focus) without using an ultra expensive 'tilt and shift' lens.

i gave it a go and was shocked just how well it worked!



This is a technique that i would be willing to teach through private lessons or through a RONiN photography 'advanced techniques' photography course. Please contact me for details.
