This bit of street photography is the result of setting up a focus area and waiting. As I was waiting for my husband to meet me at the Skytrain station. As I came up to the station, I noticed an interesting bit of graffiti and a great subject to set up focus on. From there, all I had to do was wait for people to walk out of the station and into the plain of focus I had set. On this day, I was also in the mood to shoot in black and white. I had my camera set to B&W.
This is my first shot at pixel shift. I could try and explain this in detail, but WIKI would do that clearly and more accurately. Basically, what happens is with the use of a verrrrrrrry sturdy tripod and my Sonys pixel shift feature, the camera takes a series of four photos. The camera shifts the image sensor by one pixel between each shot using pixels that would have otherwise been wasted. For red and blue, you get 40% more information, and for green, you get 20% more. This can result in a sharper image.
Time to get out the door! It seems I am always saying that. But it’s true. I’ve got 15 minutes. This photo is of the CBC building and its satellite dish. I quickly snapped this photo with an eye for editing and framing angles. I like the results and will get back to this idea in the coming days. View the better quality version on my site.
I don’t have a lot of time here! Just a quick blog post to show some photos I am getting back to editing from my trip to Sri Lanka this past March. This elephant has just crossed a marsh in Yala and taking a dust bath and nibbling a bit. This disturbed the bird that had a free ride the whole way across the marsh. These images and more from Sri Lanka in March 2022 are on my site.
I am getting back to editing photos of my trip to Sri Lanka in March of this year (2022). I give you Leopard Print, of a kind. In this instance, it is a leopard’s paw print in the dirt of Yala, Sri Lanka.
On this day we were not having a lot of luck spotting a leopard. By this point we have had great luck so I have nothing to complain about but today doesn’t seem like our day. Our tracker and jeep driver Indika Nettigama of Ceylon Wild Safaris spots a sign. This print in the terrafirma of Yala is as close as we would get to this particular leopard.
After another couple of hours of tracking, we were rewarded with a magnificent sighting of a mother leopard and her two subadult cubs. It is getting harder to find leopards in Sri Lanka, which should be shocking to everyone reading this. Yala Sri Lanka is or was the place with the most leopards per square kilometre in the world. Your chances of spotting one would have been almost certain if you spent enough time. Now they report stretches of weeks where sightings are rare.
