Tag Archives: Canon EF 70-200mm IS f/2.8L USM II
This “once in a lifetime” photo was taken at 19:05:54 on June 5, 2012 in Ottawa, Ontario. In attendance was my good friend and fellow photographer, Fernando Matias. Working together, we combined our camera gear by stacking our Canon EF 70-200mm IS lenses with 2 polarizers and 2 EF Extenders 2xII to effectively create a 800mm lens. We took this picture at 1/8000 of a second using an aperture value of 64 and an ISO rating of 50 – In other words, we did as much as we could to get in as close as we could while reducing the intensity of the light. What a moment! The bright dot is the sun, and the tiny black dot is Venus. Photography safety tip #1: Protect your eyes by remembering to never look directly at the sun!
When I photographed the moon on this fine evening it smiled back down at me…LOL…what a super great moment for some photography fun!
Photography tip: This picture is called a “composite photograph” which means it was artificially created by combining elements from other pictures, or in this case, the same picture divided up into crescent moons and reconfigured! With digital photography, and a bit of Photoshop CS5 knowhow, anything is possible, so go ahead, have some fun!
A double professional with one amazing job! I’d totally love to do this kind of stuff with my camera…
Before entering a smoke filled house on fire…
Ottawa firefighters performing some serious logistics work to coordinate and calculate their rapid response operations with professionalism and accountability. When I took this photo, and saw this level of organization quickly unfolding before me, I felt really inspired. I’ve always respected the profession of firefighting, and I think Ottawa residents should take great pride and comfort in knowing we truly have a dedicated workforce of firefighters ready to jump into action with some serious composure and capacity.
Two Ottawa firefighters quickly team up to professionally manage and coordinate over a dozen firefighters working a burning house fire. While I don’t know the exact details, from an outsider’s perspective it certainly looked like they were conducting some seriously effective logistics work! It looked like they were strategically planning their operations with a great deal of composure, and perhaps more importantly, taking the time to account for the scores of firefighters and resources coming in and out of a burning house – an inherently dangerous and unpredictable situation.
Over a dozen Ottawa firefighters working in teams rushed into early morning action to professionally control and address a burning house fire!
