Technical Support / Repair time

I just now gave my CC info to Canon in New Jersey to repair my gear...anyone have a guestimate on when I'll get it back in Michigan?    ;)

Front focus/back focus...does no one bother with micro focus adjustment...it's a no brainer!    :o

IMHO, stacking is the greatest thing since sliced bread for those that wish to avoid any hint of distortion...why tighten that lens down when you can open that lens and stack the images.  This was a 300mm at f/2.8, about 20 some image stack.

All shot using a 180 macro on a Ds3

This rose was backlit using a mirror's sun reflection...

Portrait / Coy Dove

I do a lot of stuff just to see if I could do it.  This dove is 20 images, focus stacked and photo-merged using a tripod mounted 2X TC with a 300 mm 2.8 lens,
manual focusing/exposure.  At full size, it would be a 20" x 30" print at 300 dpi.


Landscape / Trying a different dirrection

Don't usually do well at landscape but they took me off my meds...

A photographer will use that 70-200 but...an artist will use the 135.

It's really difficult...plug all the holes in the feeder but one, wait a day for the birds to accustom themselves to one hole> using a tripod with a long lens and a remote shutter, pre-focus near the feeder hole.  Now the tough part>grab a cuppa and wait, with the remote in your hand...when a bird comes close to your pre-focus area, fire off a burst.  You won't have a high keeper rate but, you will have some killer images...like this

Aah...why not take the posy inside to the kitchen table rather than lay/play in the diet?     ::)

Thank you for the link!      ;)

The term "bird portrait" is, at best, an oxymoron...one cannot do a portrait, using an acceptable definition of the term, in the creature's natural milieu.  Nonetheless...

For an incredibility simple answer...use a longer lens and use Photoshop "photo-merge".  You can cough out images with as many MP as you want. 
This dove is 24"x30" @ 300ppi.

99% of the time, a 300mm f/2.8 lens is mounted on my 1Ds3 for everything, if not that, a 180 macro.
Just make sure your computer has sufficient RAM.
