I look at these and other photos and think it looks awesome. I hope so, I just bought mine. The review also poo pooed the 60D as junk, and as an owner with 70,000+ pictures shot, almost exclusively birds, I highly disagree.

I also read where someone could barely get useable pictures at ISO 640 on the 60D, where as that is my go to starting point. Some people just don’t know their camera or shooting technique

The functionality of the 7D Mk ii is above and beyond the 60D, so if the Image Quality is any amount better, I am sure I will be happy shooting what ever comes my way.

For the jack rabbit shot, I wouldn’t hesitate to print at 12×19. You don’t view large prints from close up.

Cheers

Yes, I’m sure I will give it another go, once I carve out the time. As a positive epilogue, one of my photos from Thousand Island Lake that gloomy morning was later published full page in Backpacker Magazine.

I was there that evening in September 2012, with Jack and Jerry. It was our first night shooting. Jack was fairly close to me with his camera and tripod. Little by little the clouds started to change colors above the Tetons and Jack shouted out “Magic Time!” Thanks to Jack and Jerry, and thanks to you Hank for sharing your story.

Felt interactive. I like how there were hover titles with some of the photos. Occasionally, it was unclear which text related to which photo (was the text for the above photo or below photo) but that was quickly answered if I read more than a few words but it did feel a little disjointed there.

Comment on Why I’m Buying the Canon 7D Mk II by Hank Christensen http://blog.hankchristensen.com/2014/09/why-im-buying-the-canon-7d-mk-ii/comment-page-1/#comment-955 Fri, 07 Nov 2014 01:55:00 +0000 http://blog.hankchristensen.com/?p=3741#comment-955 Yes, that is true, Glen. 45 is much better than the 19 offered by the 7D, and it doesn’t impact my photography much. The 65 total points become more important for birds in flight, and I rarely use my 800 for that – it is just too difficult to track! Most of my 800mm shooting are bird portraits.

I found it useful. Your reasons for purchasing the Mk ll are largely the same as mine, though I don’t have the concern of using an 800 mm with a 2x since my longest lens is the Canon 500 Mk ll. I should receive my 7D Mk ll on Monday and I’m quite excited about its possibilities compared to my 2 7D’s. I wonder how long it’ll take us (me) to become proficient with all the AF setting possibilities, especially for birds in flight. Ahhh, yet another learning curve…

Although, this year I plan to pick up where I left off with photographing Rhododendrons on sunny days, using an 85mm lens. Typically used for my portraits, I tried that one last year in Redwood National Park, and started to capture some dreamy colorful photos of Rhododendrons. Seems 99% of photographers aim for Rhodies in the fog, so I had not seen clear day images with heavy bokeh before from the Redwood parks. Definitely planning on Rhodies in the fog too though. November to May may be the ultimate season for photographing the big trees.

Ciao,

Comment on The Search for Sky Rock by dzrtxplorer http://blog.hankchristensen.com/2011/10/the-search-for-sky-rock/comment-page-1/#comment-948 Wed, 22 Jan 2014 02:39:00 +0000 http://blog.hankchristensen.com/?p=2237#comment-948 No worries Hank I won’t disclose the info. anytime soon. I’d like for it to stay secret for as long as it can. It’s just nice to know that others wish to see these sites stay as pristine as possible. I’m always searching the web for any leads to so called “secret” sites. Sometimes others slip up and post these locations without considering the damage it could cause. I’m guessing shortly after the post the link was deleted. It is my hope that not many people found the wikimapia page I found. I was very fortunate to find the info. I did about Skyrock. I was trying for awhile to get info about Skyrock and then I stumbled upon the now deleted wikimapia page on it. I was really amazed that this site location was made publice for a short time. Hope to see the site soon before I move out of state. Even when I move out of state, if I don’t make it within the year, I’ll be making plans to get out to this unique site. I also know that 13 moons isn’t too far from Skyrock :). Thanks for the great pics Hank.

One of the reasons this site is still pristine and accessible (read: unroped or fenced off) is that finding the site requires a bit of work. Those that do tell other people directly try to restrict this knowledge only to people they know will be as careful and respectful with the site as they are. Those who chose to exploit this information for gain would be partially to blame if someone took that shared information and vandalized the site, which is exactly what happened to several other sites in the area.

Not too long ago Wikimapia made the sight location to Skyrock available. It seems that enough people protested that posting and wikimapia took it off. I was able to get the details of where to find this amazing sight off wikimapia and now time will tell what I decide to do with this precious bit of info. Perhaps in the near future a book will detail how to get to the site :).

I definitely don’t get up to Oregon as often as I’d like. I grew up at the mouth of the Columbia Gorge, but my visits these days are usually short and I don’t get enough time to explore. One of these photos of the Eagle Creek drainage made it to my Mountains portfolio cover of my new web site. Oregon has such a varied beauty to it!

We camp at Lostine every summer and hike up through the Lake Basin. I miss it the moment I leave. We’ve found it to be picking up more and more each year as word gets out about the beauty. As a kid, we would never encounter other hikers or packers. If did run into a group, it was usually on horse and they were headed out while we were headed in. Anyway, thank you for sharing these breathtaking moments with us!

Comment on Lightplay On Granite (Photo of the week) by Hank Christensen http://blog.hankchristensen.com/2010/08/lightplay-on-granite/comment-page-1/#comment-937 Thu, 05 Sep 2013 04:58:00 +0000 http://blog.hankchristensen.com/?p=981#comment-937 Thanks for the comment, Harsharn. I find myself gravitating toward certain exposure compensations depending on what I am shooting. For many wildlife situations, I usually over expose by a stop or more. For landscape in normal mid-day sun, I usually find myself at about 1/3 to 2/3 of a stop over exposed. In general, I always expose to the right, making sure to bring my histogram as far to the right without over exposing. Sometimes this looks terrible in the camera’s LCD, but by following the histogram, I know that I can bring down the black levels in post processing and all all that contrast back to the image.

When using evalutive metering on my camera (5DMKII) I have to increase the exposure by about 1-12/3 stop otherwise my shot ends up being under exposured as the camera gets a bit overwhelmed with the amount of light it has to deal with.

Most of my images are in a 2×3 aspect ratio, so I sell them in an 8 x 12 inch size. However, you can always use an 8×10 inch mat to display the image, and leave the extra 2 inches of the photo behind the mat. That way if you ever want to re-frame, you still have the image in its original intended size. You can read more about that here: http://www.hankchristensen.com/page1

The easiest way to order a print is to select one of the “Image Page” buttons below an image in the blog. That will take you to the purchase page for that image. Then click the Buy Prints button on the right hand side of the page. I charge $39 for 8×12 inch prints. Thanks again for checking out my work!

I would say that anything from Glacier Lake north was somewhat crowded. Anything south of that had almost no people. At Glacier there were about ten different groups of people – the ranger said that Mirror Lake had closer to 30 groups that night. I think in general, the closer you get to Wallowa, the more crowded it gets.

Right next to the sign that says something like “fragile habitat, no dogs allowed.” Ah yes, you gotta love it!

I’m always on the lookout for more readership (especially those of you who are outspoken), so let me take this opportunity to reach out to those of you in the “darkness”.  Add a comment like David did and let me know what you think (or even just say “hi”).  Anything is welcome – technical questions, philosophical pondering, suggestions for places to visit, whatever.  Also, if you like what you see here, please forward it on to others who might enjoy it as well.  I’ll strive to keep the material interesting, and always family safe.

Thanks again David for your feedback – best of luck to you with your photography!

Comment on Lessons From Jack by David http://blog.hankchristensen.com/2012/11/lessons-from-jack/comment-page-1/#comment-489 Mon, 05 Nov 2012 14:46:00 +0000 http://blog.hankchristensen.com/?p=2792#comment-489 Hank, I’ve been “stalking” your work and your blog for several months.  I love your work and am envious of some of the locations you’ve shared.  I’ve wished many times to be standing in that position.

But I’ve never made a comment obviously until now.  I appreciate you taking me through the workshop experience with Jack.  Capturing the right image is so much more than all the technical details.  I loved hearing the “thoughts” from Jack and yourself.  Without a doubt, on my next sunrise/sunset shoot, I’ll hear the wind whispering, “Wait for it.”

Many thanks…David

Comment on Photo Fix Or Photo Fraud? by Ingrid http://blog.hankchristensen.com/2012/06/photo-fix-or-photo-fraud/comment-page-1/#comment-465 Wed, 22 Aug 2012 07:08:00 +0000 http://blog.hankchristensen.com/?p=2636#comment-465 I’ve had a lot of discussions about nature photography ethics at my blog and elsewhere — and I agree with you that it depends on how the photo is presented.

Putting aside the issue of field ethics and behavior toward wildlife, both of which are very important to me, I think some of these decisions come down to the integrity of disclosure. Here, you show how you changed the photograph and aren’t misrepresenting what you saw. I sometimes take two exposures for moon juxtaposition shots, for instance, but I label them as such. 

I realize there are purists who would disagree with me, but I think disclosure is a significant component of this discussion. I know a photograph falls under the auspices of “art.” What differentiates nature photography, for me anyway, is that it’s representing an authenticity and a reality which brings to mind stricter mores. 

I’m particularly critical of set up shots that aren’t disclosed as such … refrigerating insects, as one example, or baiting owls. Well, I have personal trouble with those issues on different grounds. But, I tend to think that if a photographer is presenting work as photojournalistic in nature, that presents a much more stringent set of standards. If the photographer acknowledges artistic changes for the sake of clearing the clutter and then describes that in some form, it may disqualify the images from certain contexts or contests, but it’s honest.

Once hatched, snowy plover chicks can be raised by either the father or mother (I knew this fact when I wrote the post above, but refered to the adult as “mother” for narrative purposes).  This is definitely not a deadbeat dad, successfully raising three chicks on a well populated beach.  In fact, this is the first nesting recorded here in over 25 years! 

Thanks Frances for the insightful information and the great work you do. 

Note that the mother may have been present on the beach, but I only ever saw one adult tending to the chicks.

You are right, poisons are not the safe way. On another note, the CA ground squirrel is a problem for our wildlife and landscapes. Here’s a great article: http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7438.html
We have been dealing with ground squirrels here in San Diego co. that are predating all bird nests, not just ground nests. They also mob our CA gray squirrels, all the snakes & descimate meadows with their burrows. In our desert, they have displaced our birds, our antelope & golden-mantled ground squirrels. They are supposed to be limited to the coastal habitats. Instead, due to developement (this includes campgrounds) this animal has been dispersed into every place, except apparently Owen’s valley.
