Downtown Jerry’s Aug 01, 2012

I was invited to Downtown Jerry’s to take some photos for DJ Theory and his new banners and while there I took the opportunity to take shots of the crowd enjoying their night with plenty of well priced drinks and their friends at their disposal. The bar tenders were all very polite and clearly enjoyed what they were doing. DJ Theory certainly knows how to bring in the crowds though as the place was packed for the entire night.

Enjoy the photos from the night, it’s clear they enjoyed having their photos taken as well.

As always, if you do not wish to have your photo posted up then message me and I will remove it or blur your face/body out of the image.

I recently got one of these card to put in my camera to see if the hype was all it was cracked up to be, I’ll have to say that it truly is. I can now shoot completely wirelessly and not have to worry about cables being strung all over the place and get my photos straight up on the computer and access everything on the fly. I enjoy having a much larger screen to confirm my photos on before proceeding to the next shot in the series for the shoot. What a pleasure it is to not have to be tied down with a USB cable sticking out of the side of my camera and having to finagle with it to get it out of my way when I change positions.

If you are shooting with a “Pro Camera (DSLR)” and want to be able to transfer RAW files you will need to have the “Pro” version of the cards, as the other models will not transfer RAW files. Other “Point and Shoot” type cameras have the ability to shoot RAW and you will also need the “Pro” card to be able to transfer those RAW files wirelessly. It’s unfortunate that they make you pay more just for RAW file transfers but it is worth it in the end. I now have 2 of these cards due to the fact that I thought I could use just the standard version for RAW files but that’s okay, I just made my mother happy because now she has the other card.

The bottom line is that if you are looking to upgrade to higher performance or just don’t want to have to run a cable to your camera every time you want to transfer photos then this is your solution. What a great solution it is as well!

This was my first attempt at capturing shots of birds right in the front yard. I wanted to try to get them secluded from other objects in the background while still getting a nice “portrait” type of shot of them.

Using plenty of bird seed and patience I sat and waited for them to come in. With my T2i pared with my 70-300mm USM lens and wireless triggering of my 430ex II I was able to get these shots. This set was taken late June of 2010 and posted to Flickr early July of 2010. I’ve learned a lot from this set and my recent attempts at a similar shoot to get something new and interesting for the coming attempts to repeat this. I’m hoping to be able to get a capture that I will print and hang on my wall. The only problem is that I’m incredibly picky when it comes to what I print and hang up in my own house.

The above was a bit of a happy accident really. I was shooting under a tree so to get a balanced background I had to use some flash. This one occurred as my first set of batteries was dieing out and couldn’t recycle fast enough. It was a bit of a pleasant surprise / accident. I rather like the shot and If I can get the opportunity to reproduce something like this I will. With a few minor adjustments I would like to have one similar to this on my wall.

2691 Cardinal watching me

^, He seemed to be keeping an eye or two on me for quite a while even though I was a good distance away from him, shooting out at roughly 250mm. I rather enjoyed shooting this cardinal as he was playful in a manner while still giving me great poses.
