One Business You Do Not Want to Get Into; What to Do With a Fizzle?

Another Gatorland Short Notice Saturday Full-Day In-the-Field Workshop: Saturday May 3, 2014

Announced Here for the First Time

Please scroll down for details.

The Streak Continues: 137

It is 5:42 am. Though I leave for the airport at 10:30am for my flights to Amsterdam for the Holland Tulip IPT, I still have not begun packing my two checked bags…. My Think Tank rolling bag is packed. I decided to take the 300 II and leave the 200-400 at home and to leave one of my two 1D X bodies at home since we will be doing only a few birds at most and I will be depending on my 5D Mark III for the tulips and the flower fields.

clouds-at-sunset-_a1c2794-lake-blue-cyrpess-indian-river-county-fl

This image was created at 7:23pm on Saturday April 12, 2014 aboard Jim Neiger’s customized pontoon boat with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens (hand held at 24mm) and the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. ISO 800. Evaluative metering +2/3 stop as framed: 1/2500 sec. at f/5.6 in Av mode. Color temperature: 10,000K.

Central sensor/AI Servo/Surround Rear Focus AF on the horizon line and re-compose. Click here to see the latest version of the Rear Focus Tutorial. Click on the image to see a larger version.

Image #1:It’s All About the Clouds

One Business You Do Not Want to Get Into

We first noticed the swirly clouds at about 5pm. By 7:30, most were–going by the gorgeous patterns of the light clouds on the eastern horizon, predicting a killer colorful sunset. Though I agreed, I did caution: “One business that you do not want to get into is predicting sunset color….”

Within 20 minutes, my caution rang true.

Image Optimization Note

I wanted to try adding a reduced opacity later of Auto Contrast (ALT-SHIFT-CNTRL L) as taught to me by Denise Ippolito) but I accidentally hit SHIFT-CNTRL L. Wow, that really popped the BLUEs, similar to what White Neutralizer does in NIK but a lot faster. A bit of searching showed that I had hit the default keyboard shortcut for Auto Tone. I reduced the opacity to 80% and was thrilled with my new discovery. I shall not forget it.


cypress-trees-at-sunset-_a1c2838-lake-blue-cyrpess-indian-river-county-fl

This image was created at 7:45pm on Saturday April 12, 2014 aboard Jim Neiger’s customized pontoon boat with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens (hand held at 26mm) and the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. ISO 800. Evaluative metering +1 1/3 stops: 1/640 sec. at f/4 in Av mode. Color temperature: 10,000K.

Three sensors to the left of the central sensor/AI Servo/Surround Rear Focus AF as framed active at the moment of exposure. Click here to see the latest version of the Rear Focus Tutorial. Click on the image to see a larger version.

Image #2: Cypress Trees Straight Up

Straight Up

Once Jim positioned the boat grabbing the 24-70 and going wide with it was the obvious choice. With a bit of color above the horizon I went with the traditional approach by creating a sharp image.

Image Question

What 2 species of birds can be identified in this photo? Note: clicking on the image to enlarge it will help.


cypress-tree-art-vivid-hdr-funky-_a1c2849-lake-blue-cyrpess-indian-river-county-fl

This 3-frame in-camera HDR Art Vivid image was created at 7:46pm on Saturday April 12, 2014 aboard Jim Neiger’s customized pontoon boat with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens (hand held at 24mm) and the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. ISO 800. Evaluative metering +1 2/3 stops: 1/125 sec. at f/4 in Av mode. Color temperature: 10,000K.

Three sensors to the left of the central sensor/AI Servo/Surround Rear Focus AF as framed were active at the moment of each exposure. Click here to see the latest version of the Rear Focus Tutorial. Click on the image to see a larger version.

Image #3: Cypress Trees HDR Art Vivid Funky Outlines

What to Do With a Fizzle?

In-camera Art Vivid HDR

My first thought was to boost the color by going in-camera HDR Art Vivid, offered only in the Canon EOS-D Mark III. I know that with the boat rocking that both the horizon line and the trees would feature funky black outlining. I was right.


cypress-trees-mutliple-exposure-_a1c2879-lake-blue-cypress-indian-river-county-fl

This 5-frame in-camera multiple exposure was created at 7:53pm on Saturday April 12, 2014 aboard Jim Neiger’s customized pontoon boat with the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens (hand held at 26mm) and the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. ISO 800. Evaluative metering +1 2/3 stops: 1/125 sec. at f/4 in Av mode. Color temperature: 10,000K.

Three sensors to the left of the central sensor/AI Servo/Surround Rear Focus AF as framed active at the moment of exposure. Click here to see the latest version of the Rear Focus Tutorial. Click on the image to see a larger version.

Image #4: Ghost Cypress Trees

What to Do With a Fizzle?

In-camera Multiple Exposure

Just for the heck of it I decided to try an in-camera Multiple Exposure. The first one looked quite ghostly so I created 5 more. This one is my favorite.

Your Favorite

After enlarging each image, please take a moment to let us know which one you like best and why.

The Feather Button

I access both the in-camera HDR feature and the in-camera Multiple Exposure feature via the Artist’s Brush button on the back of the 5D Mark III. Learn everything that there is to know about these 2 great features, everything that there is to know about the 5D III’s great new AF system, and pretty much everything that there is to know about this great camera in our 5D MK III User’s Guide.

osprey-in-low-light-_y5o8364-lake-blue-cyrpess-indian-river-county-fl

This Osprey top shot was created very late in the day (7:30pm) on a mostly clear afternoon on Lake Blue Cypress on Saturday, April 12. There were five of us aboard Jim Neiger’s pontoon boat. I used the hand held Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens, the Canon Extender EF 2X III, and the Canon EOS-1D X. ISO 1600. Evaluative metering -1/3 stop off the green vegetation: 1/640 sec. at f/5.6 in Manual mode. AWB.

Central Sensor/AI Servo-Surround/Rear Focus AF as originally framed was active at the moment of exposure. The image was cropped from behind and from above. Learn everything there is to know about the 1D X and 5D III AF systems including how to manage the various AF Area Selection Modes, when to use which one, and several ways to move the AF sensor around in my 1D X AF Guide and the 5D Mark III User’s Guide.

The Story

On Saturday afternoon, after three great flight photography sessions while hand holding the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM lens with Internal 1.4x Extender the muscles along the back of my neck and shoulders ached. Actually, I was totally beat by the end of Friday, the first of the two days on Jim Neiger’s pontoon boat. And Saturday morning was by far the best osprey flight photography session that I have ever enjoyed.

Clear and sunny conditions on Saturday afternoon featured very little in the way of flight photography as a strong east wind resulted in all the birds flying and landing away from us and away from the light. With wind against sun sometimes you need to lie down on the bottom of the boat and take a nap. And that is exactly what I did. By 6:30pm the wind had abated a bit and Jim took us to a nice sheltered spot with Osprey and Barred Owl. We had seen a Barn Owl there on Friday afternoon. It was a first-ever Florida sighting for both Jim and me. And even more amazingly, the Barn Owl was attacked by a Barred Owl. On Saturday afternoon we saw the area Peregrine attack one of the Barred Owls. At one point the Peregrine flared right in front of us offering a killer photo opportunity. As nobody had seen it coming only Jim Neiger got a frame, but that only after the bird had turned away. In retrospect we all agreed that the handsome falcon had magically appeared out of nowhere.


barred-owl-in-flight-_y5o8313-lake-blue-cyrpess-indian-river-county-fl

This Barred Owl top shot was created late in the day (6:45pm) on a mostly clear afternoon on Lake Blue Cypress on Saturday, April 12 aboard Jim Neiger’s pontoon boat. I used the hand held Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens, the Canon Extender EF 2X III, and the Canon EOS-1D X. ISO 1600. Evaluative metering – about 1 1/3s stop off the green vegetation: 1/1600 sec. at f/6.3 in Manual mode was a large underexposure error. DPP did a nice job of controlling the noise in the dark areas. AWB.

Central Sensor/AI Servo-Surround/Rear Focus AF on the base of the owl’s tail as originally framed was active at the moment of exposure. The image was cropped from behind and from above and below. Learn everything there is to know about the 1D X and 5D III AF systems including how to manage the various AF Area Selection Modes, when to use which one, and several ways to move the AF sensor around in my 1D X AF Guide and the 5D Mark III User’s Guide.

The Canon 300mm f/2.8L IS II/2X III/1D X: An Unexpectedly Viable Rig for Hand Held Flight Photography

In any case, by Saturday afternoon I was too tired to even think about lifting the 200-400. I did have the 300mm f/2.8L IS along and remembering the success that Denise Ippolito had had with that combo in Japan, I grabbed it and one of my 2X III TCs and went to work. At 5.19 pounds, the 300 II is 2.79 lbs. lighter than the 7.98 pound 200-400 zoom. Thus, hand holding it for flight was a dream; seemingly light as a feather it was much easier for me to acquire the bird in the frame and to keep the image properly framed.

Initial focusing acquisition with the 1D X was very fast as would be expected with any pro body. The speed of Initial focusing acquisition, however, would not be as fast with a 5D III or a 7D as the battery voltage is lower with the pro-sumer bodies. Even with two batteries in the vertical grip the situation would not improve as the camera uses only one battery at a time. AF tracking was accurate, and, as you can see here, image sharpness was excellent. This due in to the 300 II’s great 4-stop IS system and in part to the superb sharpness of the prime lens. As most of my flight images with the 200-400 were made at 560mm I will in the future turn to the 300 II/2X III/1D X combination more often for flight photography especially when the need for reach is paramount.
