Odd-duck-out. Which one?

Odd-duck-out. Which one?

I swung my lens up just in time to catch this low-flying mallard. The sky was so blue and his feathers were so white. (click to enlarge)

Record-breaking snowfall in Montreal yesterday…almost 50 cm.

Same guy that was on my post this morning.  This is kind of a poorly executed photo on many levels, but, it intrigues me. (Click for a bigger look.) I find it ethereal with the snow and the splashes of purple.  I love that the feet of first duck and the back of the third duck are in focus-something for the left and right eye. What do I know? You decide….

Changing Perspective

I am often asked for tips on photographing wildlife and one thing I always advise is try to change your perspective. Here is an example of how very different a photo can look just be changing your camera position. These two shots were taken less than a minute apart with the same lighting. The first was taken from a tripod and the second one I was down on the ground leaning on my elbows, almost at eye level. Notice how different the light is, in particular the colours reflecting off the water. Just by getting a little down and dirty you can change the entire feeling of a photo.
