    It was a boring month for me, but at least I started actively shooting again.

    It was a beautiful sunny August here, but I chose to shoot mainly in black and white!

    You folks are fantastic photographers. Here my 5 favs from August 2016, all taken on a 260 Km canoe trip that took us from the Canadian Shield to the Hudson Bay Lowlands.

    I only got out a few times this month because of the weather. It is just way to hot here in August to get out much, much prefer the colder times of the year when it's possible to stay out all day long shooting since I typically have a 1+ hour drive (which is normally almost 2x the amount of time coming home due to traffic).

    I will start off with a shot that I am personally in love with and had printed on metallic paper, looks great as a 20x16 print.

    EM1 w/ ZD 150mm ƒ2.0: ISO 200, 1/2000 @ ƒ2.0, handheld

    Zoned In by RRcoleJR Photography, on Flickr

    This next one is from a series of shots I made of the same frog using the ZD 150mm ƒ2.0. The series was with the various configurations (no TC, EC-14, EC-20) and various apertures all from the same location. Here I present the photo with the EC-20 and shot wide-open, if you click thru there are many more if interested in the differences.

    EM1 w/ ZD 150mm ƒ2.0 + EC-20: ISO 400, 1/320 @ ƒ4.0, handheld

    ZD 150 w/ EC20 @ ƒ4.0 No Crop by RRcoleJR Photography, on Flickr

    EM1 w/ ZD 150mm ƒ2.0 + EC-20: ISO 1000, 1/320 @ ƒ4.5, handheld

    ZD 150 w/ EC20 @ ƒ4.5 by RRcoleJR Photography, on Flickr

    This next one is the same baby gator as the first shot. When I laid at the edge of the water, him and his 5 siblings swam within 5 feet to check me out. This shot is right at the minimum focus distance of the lens and the only crop was to take it to 3:2 (which I prefer for my gator shots).

    EM1 w/ ZD 150mm ƒ2.0: ISO 200, 1/1600 @ ƒ2.0, handheld
    28763534563_ac0bac9647_h.jpg
    150 @ ƒ2.0 by RRcoleJR Photography, on Flickr

    The last one is from a night spent downtown shooting with some friends. I picked this one because I was just amazed that I could get that sharp of a photograph handholding a 25 second exposure while standing in an intersection and looking up (with the knowledge that I had to move as soon as the exposure was done or risk getting run over).

    EM1 w/ Bower 7.5mm Fisheye: ISO 200, 25 seconds @ ƒ4.0, handheld

    Some stunning photos this month!

    I shot less with the Oly 60 macro this month as it was just so hot out there. Couple of pet pics this month too.
