These portraits of criminals come from the archives of the police in Sydney.
Police officer-photographer who took them in the 1920s was to have a great sense of artistic, even ignoring the context each photo is superb.

Canon General / Free Online Photography Training
« on: February 07, 2011, 03:34:44 PM »
Just a reminder that Creative Live provides free online training sessions with all kiinds of photography and video training.

This week, for example, there is a one day quick start  in depth course covering the T2i, including a review of differences in the T3i.  You can watch the courses online live for free, or purchase download rights.  The Canon 60D will be covered on 2/24.  Those with N____ won't be left out, there are courses for them as well.

This is about the only place where you can get free professional level training on almost any aspect of photography.  The courses I've watched were well worth the price of the download.

They make their money by selling downloads of past training.  I have bought downloads for my personal use, it helps them keep supplying the training.


Animal Kingdom / Snow Birds
« on: December 29, 2010, 10:02:57 PM »
Here in spokane, Washington, USA we had a snowy day, about 10 inches.  I setup a bird feeder last spring, and am trying to keep the big flock of birds that feed there well fed this winter.  I put a bucket heater in the fountain so they have fresh water, it has been down to -15 F this winter, and it keeps on running.

Here is a finch enjoying lunch this afternoon.  They do keep their feathers puffed up a little to keep warm.  The feeder was covered with about two dozen of them this morning.  I used my 100-400mm l hand held with flash and better beamer.  With the wind blowing, its not as sharp as it could be, but it was cold and blowing snow right into my lens, so I snapped off a couple and gave it up.

Canon 1D MK III, 100-400mm L @ 400mm, 1/250 sec with flash, ISO 200.
