Cedar Waxwing

Cedar Waxwing
500 mm, f5.6, 1/320 at ISO 400

Had planned to go down to Cape Cod today but the weather forecast was not the best so went looking for Waxwings instead.  One from this morning.   Also want to clear a misconception that a few fellow photographers had – the male and female have the same markings – the red tips do not indicate a male bird.

Macro and Close-up Photography Workshop – Update

The August 20th workshop was a small group and provided the attendees a lot of personalized attention.  The use of focus stacking was a great hit.  Next is a one-on-one all day session with one of my worship attendees from last month.  Looking forward to that.

 Rose – A 24 Image Focus Stack at f 2.8

Here is a survey comment from one of my participants:

“Shiv is an excellent instructor, knows how to make concepts understandable, and is extremely knowledgeable. No matter what level of photography you are at, he will make sure you you grasp what he is presenting. He uses simple exercises to illustrate the effects he presents so you fully see the reasoning behind his instruction.”
