Took these last week while on Vancouver Island. These whales belong to local resident J-Pod and we followed them along the U.S./Canadian border at Boundary Pass between S. Pender Island (CA) and Stuart Island (US). Took a little over 600 shots but sadly these are the best. We were in a little zodiac boat so when using a zoom lens the wave action is greatly amplified. I took a lot of pictures of open water lol. Will post some more in the coming days including a few from Olympic National Park.

I know it's been a few weeks, but here's a couple captures from my trip.

Random request. And some probably already exists somewhere but this is an awfully long thread to sift through. I'm looking for a photo(s) that someone would be willing to send me the high res for, that exemplifies NOLA that I cold blow up, frame and hang in my living room. I'd also print them in black and white (to go with my theme) if that was not their original

I know - this is vague. I'm just doing a little redecorating in the living room and I already have some Jazzfest posters framed in my dining room and some sepia toned photos of some iconic New Orleans things (street car, cathedral, etc) taken at night so want to keep with the NOLA theme throughout. I've been looking online for some stuff but nothing has really stood out. Feel free to PM me if you can help a girl out.

Need a lil advice....I was asked to take the team pictures for my son's high school baseball team. I shot action photos last year for the team & made a few calendars for the players. I've never done anything "professional" before.

I have the gear to pull it off, but I don't want to take the assignment and fail. Any advice, Outlaw? Also, where do you print these if I'm not a pro? Mpix? Adorama? Other?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Just curious, any update/sample photos from the shoot? How did it go?

You could also try Flickr mate, the site contains a lot of NOLA shots. The general rule of thumb on there is that if someone enables users to download the picture they are happy for you to use it for personal use.

Does anyone have experience with pageants? Do people ever hire a photographer to take photos from start to finish (hair/makeup shots, followed by some portraits and then coverage of that person during the pageant).

Or do they not allow photographers since they probably have their own who covers the pageant?

Finally got around to finishing this one from 4th of July last year. 30 second exposure. This is a composite image. The main shot (95% of the frame) with the Natchez boat blended in from a second shot. Same spot, same camera angle, same everything. It was just a minute or two earlier and was too good not to include with this one taken just before the finale.

I've not been getting too much done on the photography side of things generally. But I am getting a chance to try out more portrait photography, mostly of the reason I'm not getting much else done.

So here's a couple of our baby boy Fox. Happy Easter!

I understand your pain! I visited the San Juan Islands last summer and did a fast boat tour out of Friday Harbor. We saw killer whales (don't remember which pod it was) and a couple of humpbacks. If you go back to Page 123 of this thread, you'll see some of the whale pictures I got. I had a very large and heavy zoom that I had rented and ended up with about 1500 shots. Of that, maybe 50-100 had a desirable image. I ended up just setting my camera on continuous high and shot as much as I could as the boat rocked. I usually started off the target, got a couple of the whale and then moved back off target. It was kind of fun but also frustrating. The "Spray and Pray" version of photography doesn't leave you feeling like much of a photographer.

Did some portraits of my friend who is a pageant queen. Here's one so far.

Cool! I'll go back and check those out. I eventually realized that sighting down the lens like a gun barrel was way faster and more efficient than trying to find the bouncy whale in the viewfinder. lol

Our family vacation over the kids' spring break this year was to Sanibel, FL. The opportunities for bird photography are almost endless. I never got to spend too much time focused on it, but with just a few quick trips to the local wildlife reserve, I saw osprey, ibis, bald eagle, heron of all variety, egret, roseate spoonbill, and many others. I also got some hands on experience with how amazing autofocus is on modern cameras. I shoot with a Nikon D500, and it was unbelievable how quickly it could pick up a bird in flight, get me focused on it, and then maintain the focus across varying backgrounds. All of these pictures were shot with a f/2.8 70-200 lens with a X1.4 teleconverter on it.

Obviously, the pictures below are all birds in flight. I will be posting more later of stationary birds.
