ADVENTURE TRAVEL ENTHUSIASTS DEDICATED TO OVERLAND EXPLORATION
I dearly love taking the time and making the effort to capture moments, including wildlife. From rodents to Big Mammals... Fish and birds too. Show us what you're got!
Antelope buck, Wyoming, fall of 2016:
The best camera is the one you have with you when you see the shot. Keep shoot'n and have fun!
Yeah, I got a long ways to go, but in general, I think my setup will work well. I can always add to it, right? :-)
I shoot a Canon 6d and 7d mkII. The 7d does most of the wildlife stuff as it's a crop camera and with the 100-400 L series glass it's pretty good and long. The 6d is my walking around camera and it is used for landscapes and general photography. It's normally attached to a 24-105 or 16-35. I have a collection of L-series lenses that cover all of my current needs (note that I qualified that statement.) I was a Canon Pro back in the film days so Canon was the natural transition when I went digital. Still learning the digital thing...
Sometimes, simple is better, however, with the right accessories, you can take some great shots. I also use Adobe Lightroom to enhance my images. Pretty much all the B-25 Ground School images were touched up with LR.
This is how I got the blue background to be so 3 dimensionally blue...
This is my new toy...
Thanks Dan, I think Joel's photos beat the heck out of mine. I'm using a fairly compact Olympus PEN Mini with two lenses: 14-42, 75-300.
I find myself often keeping the 75-300 on the camera, on my passenger seat when I'm in an area rich in wildlife. It's ready to go if I come across something interesting.
Not a real fancy setup but the retirement gift from my wife four years ago and the best digital camera I've ever had.
Great wildlife pictures. What are you shooting with? Body and lenses? I just purchased a Canon EOS 60D and an 18-55mm IS and 75-300mm IS telephoto. Looking forward to getting back into photography!
This is some of my handy work....
2600 miles, 1400+ images to edit and a wish that I didn't have to come home... Toured Yellowstone and Grand Teton last week. Took the back roads to get there and spent time looking for critters and forgotten America... I'll share the critters here.
This proves it... Elk can't read....
Hiked beyond a locked gate with bear spray to sneak up on a elk of heard. Not easy, with bears in the area they are on full alert.
Antelope were easy to spot, but hard to get close to.
Please get my good side.
Foggy morning on the Firehole River.
They call them Red Dogs and they are cute, if not a little cheeky.
The business end of a bison.
The good stuff is always just out of reach.
Mom was showing the yearlings how to find worms.
First and only elk calf we saw. Mom was nervous with bears around.
Couldn't get this moose to shut up.
Got to watch the sun go down with a new friend.
Heading to Yellowstone tomorrow. I'm hoping to photograph baby critters all next week. Basing out of West Yellowstone, but will be poking around the Lamar Valley. This photograph is from Whistler, BC.
Joel - terrific photos of your Oregon rams!
Desert sheep, White Rim Road, Canyonlands:
Just an Arizona jackrabbit:
I love photographing the sheep in the Deschutes River canyon in the late fall....
Ewe and young desert bighorn sheep, Canyonlands National Park. Didn't catch a glimpse of the big rams.
Coyote, in Yellowstone Park:
Young bighorn ram, Chelan County, Washington:
