Spring bloom

Hello Friends,
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.
  • Tripod (Vanguard).
  • 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.

If you need more technical details or you have any questions related to photography, do not hesitate to leave your comment, alternatively you can reach me on social platforms FacebookInstagram or Twitter.

Happy Shooting,

Transition of season

Hello Friends warming up for spring?

What is that first thing comes to your mind, as soon as you hear the word #spring ? If I’m not wrong most of us think sprouting buds, cherry blossoms, chirping birds, flower blooming & green all around.

Have you seen or documented how this transition happens from #wintertospring ? I’m going to post some of such pictures for you guys from my recent trip to Nopiming provincial park, MB, Canada.

This part of Manitoba I have not explored so far, but I found out that, it is very huge park with lot of scope for #bird and #wildlife photography. I am sure, if you spend some time and do scouting, you also get very interesting #landscape pictures. Lets check some of my pictures.

Tiny Yellow bellied Sapsucker bird found near bird lake

As a bird/wildlife photographer with big lenses, I always notice birds. This is one among many birds I have spotted, the brilliant colored birdy were seen around bird lake of park.

Melting ice on Bird lake, Nopiming park.

This is view of Bird lake from the low angle, shot this picture with polarizer to add little silky water touch & to show how clear was the #water. Friends as I mentioned “The transition” melting ice is one among them, however part of ice look thick like someone threw ice blocks on lake. This location also has campground near by and benches around grills for BBQ; very nice place for camping or even for picnicking.

Waiting for right time

The above picture has many elements of transition of season. The fallen #pine cones, idle boat, thawing lake, melted ice to water this landscape moment I composed from one of the cabin house on lake. For picture with similar moment click here and also from the other part of the lake you can see how this ice is Melting (click the link).
