Lens-Artists Challenge #211: What’s your photographic groove?
This week, Anne (Slow Shutter Speed) leads “what’s your photographic groove?”–What type of photography do you truly enjoy doing?
I had a Canon 7-ii when it first came out on the market. It was made for sport action photography. I thought it’d be perfect for capturing birds in flight shots. It took me a long while to learn about those features. To incorporate these into practices at the right time was another long struggle. I remember I had to carry the manual wherever I traveled with this camera.
This is my first bird action shot with canon 70-300 mm lens. I was thrilled, say the least.
It was exciting to watch the whale jumping up and down.
I quickly learned that carrying this camera and lenses required some strength. I started my daily weightlifting workout so I could carry these gears in my backpack for birding and other trips.
I also depend on my 7-ii and my macro lens for taking close-up/macro shots. Flowers and insects are my favorites. It gives me the joy of seeing the beauty of details, colors, and shapes through the lens.
A few years ago, I got the LUMIX FZ2500 which is lighter in weight than Canon 7-ii.
I’m always surprised by the click results of my iPhone:
A close-up shot with iPhone was not disappointing:
