Mississippi Kite?

I took this photograph early Friday morning of last week. Initially I thought it might be a Red Shouldered Hawk because they are always around the neighborhood but then I notice the coloring was different and it let me get a lot closer. After a little internet search I am going to guess Mississippi Kite but I could be wrong.

Shot with my Canon 7d Mark 2 and Tamron 70-300mm lens at 300mm. Processed in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Day 12: Pelican

This image is probably a month or so old by now but I hadn’t done anything with it yet. This is from another trip to the Marina on New River Air Station. The lighting wasn’t great (bit too bright out) but I worked with it as best as I could. I really liked how the feathers on top of its head were wet and how the sun was illuminating that area.  Shot with my Canon 7Dmkii and the Canon 400mm f/5.6L lens I was renting at the time. Processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Day 9: Monochrome

Today’s image is skyline shot from downtown Wilmington North Carolina. Kind of an Odd crop but I like the way it looks so I decided to keep it. Part of my growth as a photographer has been experimenting even if the results are not the best and also sharing those results to help build confidence in my skills.

Shot with my Canon 7d mkii and 50mm lens and processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Day 7: Macro Euro

This photo was taken using the Fotodiox reverse ring. This adapter allows you to take the 18-55mm kit lens and use it as a macro lens by mounting it on the camera body backwards. By doing this you lose auto focus, image stability and information from the lens in the photo metadata but the the end result is some very cool images.

The depth of field is super shallow and getting a clean shot takes a little bit of work. The best results I have seen using this adapter are from individuals who have taken many shots and merged them during processing. The reverse ring cost a only a couple of bucks so if you have a lens with a 58mm filter thread it is a cheap alternative for getting into macro. The other options include extension tubes and a full on macro lens. The extension tubes are affordable but can’t compete with the 9 dollar price tag of the reverse ring and even the cheapest macro lenses start around $100.

The image here is a single shot the using the reverse ring or an Irish Euro coin. Editing was completed in Adobe Lightroom. As usual this was shot on my 7d mkii and the lens was the 18-55mm Canon lens that comes with the rebel DSLR kits.
