I placed the wildlife camera in the same place to see if I could capture more video of the Stoat. After three days all I had was the Pheasants, then on the last day 5 2min videos of the Badger. Mind you I had also sprinkled a few Peanuts.
Stoat playing with Pheasant, although I don’t think the Pheasant knows its a game.
We have not seen a Hedgehog in the garden for a over two years, occasional evidence but no sightings.
I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to not only photograph but also share in the celebration of the wedding of Mr and Mrs Kirton.
An excellent celebration day. Now to choose from many images ones that will remind them and others of the day for many years to come.
Congratulations to you both.
Very impressed with the speed of the focussing and the image quality even at high ISO. I used it at Chester zoo the other day on Shutter priority with auto ISO. I wanted to try it out and I am very impressed. Next testing is Manual and auto ISO. But the speed of focussing even with my 100-400mm lens was what really impressed.
I have just updated my Canon 5D Mk II to a 5D Mk IV. I am still learning all the new options especially the Auto Focus. My first impressions are that it will be a real time saver when it comes to photographing anything that is in motion, especially wildlife.
I have already customised it three times, but I think I have it fine tuned for me.
The really impressive difference for me is that I can auto focus with my 100 to 400mm Mk 1 plus x1.4 extender and it tracks quickly.
Time to try it for real
I have been spending some time recently refreshing and practicing my Restoration and retouching skills using a workflow that starts and finishes >in Adobe Lightroom with a visit to photoshop in the middle. check out www.stevepeacock-photography.com/ to see samples of my work.
I have just completed a small commercial photoshoot for an excellent restaurant in Bowness On Windermere. They have just completed a refurbishment and redecoration making the atmosphere much more relaxed. They wanted new images for their website. They required a range of images of the establishment from outside and inside, some of the plated dishes on the current menu and of the staff.
To see a sample of the images please visit my website https://www.stevepeacock-photography.com/galleries/commercial-photography/
To visit the restaurant please see their website at Porto Restaurant
I have just added a few new wildlife photographs taken at RSPB Leighton Moss late January 2017. These can be found on my website or the home page of this blog via the Wildlife Photography link at the top of the page.
Nothing exciting just a few photos of old favourites, especially Robins as they often perch right next to you as if they are shouting “photograph me”
I use the Bootstrap framework to layout my websites. Currently I use V4 which is still in the development stage. Although not yet recommended for production sites I decided to use it for mine so that I can learn as they progress through the Alpha a Beta stages. This involves looking and incorporating changes as they add them.
Currently Alpha 6 as recently been released. This is large change as they now use Flexbox as the default. I decided earlier on to use the flex option as my basis even though it restricted me to newer browsers. This has resulted in the implementation of Alpha 6 being somewhat easier. But each page still has to be checked and tested so my live site will be updated in the next couple of weeks.
