How are you doing? I guess seasonal changes made photography enthusiast busy, as lots of stuffs around grabs your attention, from your backyard to nearby parks. Off-course, if you go for hikes in bigger parks defiantly you will see lots of interesting colored flowers and leaves. Here I am posting some such pictures taken from the park which is in my neighborhood.
For this shootout I used following gears (Further details were also provided with each pictures, open in new tab by right click to view full size picture).
Canon 7D markII camera.
Canon 55-250 f 4-5.6, attached with 12mm extension tube.
Canon 100 mm L Macro lens.
Yongnuo 600EX-RT flash.
You do not need all the listed equipment for spring bloom capture, any camera & any lens which has macro capability &/ or lens attached with extension tube can yield reasonable pictures. However for better quality I recommend to use good tripod & focus lens manually.
I have provided more details of lens and camera setup along with with each pictures, please refer to it. If you have taken any spring bloom pictures please share them with us with this link click here.

Spring is sprung and we are just few weeks away from official summer in Canada. This post is just intended tell you guys that, do not skip going out on day with bad weather, specially if you are photography enthusiast. Here I am posting some of my picture which I took last week, all the pictures were created on stormy &/or rainy day. The way pictures turned out were very interesting, lighting and sky was amazing, in-fact these two factors together made common landscapes look great.
This picture was created at lower Fort Garry, Manitoba last week on Victoria day. Just look at those beautiful sky, what do you think about this picture ? are you wondering, how did I get proper exposure for the sky? here is my trick. Since it was outdoor shot I kept ISO 100 and at f6.3 I have wooden cart in focus, in this case only shutter speed (SS) was variable. First I focused to sky that gave SS of 1250 sec; then 500 sec when exposed to the house, and the SS was 250 sec for cart, averaging these three values will give you 640sec. It was little underexposed for foreground subject, but you always can recover the shadow in post processing.
Somewhere I read that once a famous photographer told “if you must shoot color simply put something Red in picture” This is one such example. Unlike previous picture I did underexposed 1-1/2 stop to capture details in sky.
Again this is single shot (not HDR) from viewpoint on north drive, Bird`s Hill Park. In this composition two things to be noted. 1. Use sky only if it adds some meaning to the picture and 2. Use sky as background in only required proportion, too much is not too good friends. This picture was also 1-1/2 stop under exposed.
Making most out the scene to create composition that is more interesting is also important thing, here reflection in this puddle makes best foreground for this composition, and in addition it adds sense of depth as well. Picture was shot at Selkirk, Manitoba on same rainy Victoria Day.
So, friends go out and shoot, get the best picture. Do not forget to share your opinion comments with me, also feel free to share your picture and stories with us at Here.

This picture was captured at end of summer 2016. The story behind this picture was very funny. While I was driving back to home after finishing bird migration shootouts from oak marsh hammock, I saw a big bald eagle is sitting in near by crop field, next moment I pulled my car and started to approach the eagle with camera, after taking several shots I realized it is a decoy, put to protect crops from other birds, it was very hilarious.
In continuation with my previous US trip stories, here I am sharing some of the pictures from Grand Canyon, a place known as natural wonder of world.

Pictures in Black and white add emotion and moment to a photograph. So most of the time I end up using black and white, the classic look. Here are some pictures of streets and buildings of Winnipeg, I am sharing with you guys, hope you like them. All pictures are taken from my Canon 7DMII+24-105L.
