I have been practicing with Black and White (And a touch of color toning) in my photos recently and wanted to share this shot of Piper carrying one of her toys in the snow this winter. This was shot in January with my Canon T3i using my canon 50mm 1.8 lens.

The shot itself has these settings:
Canon T3i, 50mm, 1/2000 sec, f/3.5

Red Crowned Crane

This is also a photo from the Columbus Zoo. When I take zoo photos, most of the time, I try to compose them in such a way as they don’t look like they were shot at a zoo. This is what I felt was a nice peaceful shot that could easily be in or out of a zoo.

On the photo itself, I really liked the line of the little stone wall as it curved through the photo, and also how clear the crane is.

What do you think?

I had never seen an actual wolf before, but while at the Columbus zoo, I came across the Timberwolf exhibit and I thought how amazing these guys looked.

I saw several of them running around the range, and this one lone wolf lounging in the sun. I decided to get a shot of him and worked close enough to get a full picture through the links in the metal fence.

I am trying out something a little bit new here, I am attempting to post from flickr to the blog, so we will see how this formats and works.

This is a Humboldt Penguin I photographed at the Columbus Zoo. First, I have to say their zoo is amazing, but secondly, I loved these guys. I really love all the different colors in his feathers as the light reflects off the water on him.

I hope everyone enjoys this guy as much as I am, it’s one of my current favorite photos I’ve taken in a while.

Pelican Dance

Sometimes, photos look like something they definitely aren’t.  For example, here’s a photo of a Pelican about to land on a rope.  To me, it looks like the pelican is dancing.  What do you think?

Canon T3i, f/6.3, 1/1000sec, ISO-160, 300mm

 

On a side note, I really love the colors of this photo.  I think the ocean has a really great almost teal color, and the browns and yellows in the pelican’s feathers really appeal to me.
