My most memorable Birds in Flight Photography Series of 2016 / 2017

Swift Tern dropping his breakfast - Woodbridge Island, Cape Town
After watching a swift tern executing a successful breakfast dive, I started tracking the bird to get a closer look - just to see him dropping his latest meal mid-air. Very much in reaction towards inevitable onslaught from the fast approaching king gull. Lucky escape for the fish, as it dropped back into the Milnerton lagoon.

Swift tern images with Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens ISO 800 f/5.6 1/5000's, AI Servo Mode: Case 1/ Wide Zone (Handheld). 10 fps High-Speed continuous shooting mode.

Low Light Photography - Intaka Island

African Sacred Ibis in Flight - Intaka Island (ISO 2500 - 3200)
I don't often go to Intaka Island for Birds in Flight photography, but spent some time there early this morning. Unlike Woodbridge Island, the best hide-area at Intaka Island is shooting mostly directly into the sun.

Early morning Birds in Flight Photography at Woodbridge Island is always with the sun behind the photographer (offering direct, but soft light on the birds).

These images (from an Intaka Island hide) are captured at Auto-ISO with the dark-green foliage adding for an additional challenge to the low / variable light conditions.

I rarely shoot higher than ISO 1600 with the Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 400mm F/5.6L USM lens, but in many ways (ito the conditions) I'm more than satisfied with these images and outing to Intaka Island.

Happy Duck with Canon EOS 7D Mark II - Cape Town

After the conclusion of one of my Birds in Flight Photography Workshops Cape Town I sat down next to the Milnerton lagoon / Woodbridge Island for some reflection. As usual, at this site, I very quickly had one of the resident ducks around me doing some late morning grooming. The white duck was right in front of my lens and I really enjoyed the Canon EOS 7D Mark II close-up opportunity.

All photos by Vernon Chalmers with Canon EOS 7D Mark II / Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens (M Mode / Handheld). Manual mode: ISO 320 / f/6.3.

Pincushion Flowers using Autofocus and Manual Focus Override

The objective of this post is to show the ability of a macro (and many other lenses) to manual focus while in camera / lens AF Mode.

For these images I focused from four different distances with my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens - while just hand holding the camera / lens and after 'locking focus' with the AF focus I just turned the front focus ring (for further fine-tuning). For optimum focus / sharpness results it's recommended to use a tripod - but, not always possible (in limited time / space).

In my upcoming Macro and Close-Up Photography Workshop I will demonstrate the Canon Extension Tube EF25 II on various non-macro lenses.

With Canon EOS 70D / 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens: f/8 ISO 400 (Ring Lite MR-14EX II Flash).

Aperture Demonstration for New Photographers

Aperture Demonstration: Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens
Aperture Demonstration for New Photographers - With Canon EOS 6D / EF 85mm f/1.8 USM Lens

A brief aperture / background blur demonstration of 8 images captured at different apertures, but exactly the same depth of field between camera / subject and background distance.

Objective: To demonstrate what effect an aperture change will have on background blur when changing the aperture setting on the camera (with all other settings exactly the same).

Lens Apertures
Apertures selected from first to last image: f/1.8 / f/2.8 / f/4 / f 5.6 / f/8 / f/11 / f/16 / f22 (f/1.8 is the largest aperture (actual lens opening with f/22 the smallest aperture of the particular lens used). Read more on the inter-relationship between Aperture / ISO and Shutter Speed: Exposure Triangle>>

Note how the density of the background blur decrease from f/2.8 to f/22. The background blur changes will have very little effect on the focused subject (red telephone / money box).

Difference between Digital Noise and Background Blur View

When is this applicable? In almost all subjects we photograph - from portraits to wildlife to landscapes. For portraits you want to isolate the subject by using a larger aperture (smaller f/ number) i.e. f/2.8 - f/4, for wildlife; isolating animals from their immediate habitat at i.e. f/4 - f/5.6 and for landscapes where you want image sharpness across the frame with smaller apertures (higher f/ number) i.e. f/11 - f/16.

The quality and density of the blur will depend on type of lens used, focal length of the lens, distance to subject (and to background). Various other camera / environmental factors could also have an effect on the desired outcome.

Creative application will also have an effect on the background blur, i.e. long exposures or showing motion in some part(s) of an image. Another consideration is macro photography where you may want to capture a close-up flower with a very narrow depth of field relative to its background - where you may require an aperture between i.e. f/2.8 - f/11 depending on the required blur effect(s) across the frame.

New bird species at Woodbridge Island, Cape Town

Three new bird species photographed above the Diep River, Woodbridge Island

During the last two Birds in Flight Photography sessions I sighted and captured three new bird species (in flight) at Woodbridge Island, Cape Town

The swallow is a regular visitor around the island, but its the first time I've taken some time to capture them in flight.

I've never seen the Little bittern or Red-billed teal / duck here before and am delighted to see them around Woodbridge Island.

All images captured by Vernon Chalmers with Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 400mm f/5.6L lens.

A copy of DPP ships with every Canon EOS DSLR offering Canon photographers with a free and powerful post-processing editing software application.

On the CD / DVD (and available online for both Windows and Mac) is the Digital Solutions Disk with various applications to get JPG and RAW image processing up and running in quick time.

As stated by Canon "Digital Photo Professional is specially designed to work closely with your Canon EOS camera and lenses, thus enabling you to correct more challenging problems such as chromatic aberration and lens-related artifacts such as distortion and vignetting."

The DPP software offers various utility enhancements for Canon EF / EF-S lenses, EOS Remote Shooting and GPS / Mapping software (for supported EOS DSLR bodies).

Available Canon DPP Downloads
  • EOS Digital Solution Disk Software 31.4A (All applications)
  • EOS Utility 3.7.0 for Windows
  • Picture Style Editor 1.19.0

Digital Photo Professional vs Lightroom (in actual use in my Cape Town target market)
As a facilitator of various photography workshops in Cape Town and I frequently ask delegates to share their choice applications for post-processing. For any group of delegates Lightroom 5 / 6 / CC will be the preferred post-processing / editing choice (with more than 90% compared to photographers using Canon's DPP).

I'm an avid user and trainer of Adobe Lightroom 5 / 6 and although I have the latest versions of the Canon DPP software on my workstations I rarely open the application. The only time I would use DPP is when demonstrating the Canon EOS Remote Shooting application and / or the GPS Map Utility software (for compatible EOS bodies).

The Quest for using Canon's DPP Photo Editing Software
I'm aware that many Canon EOS Ambassadors and mny Canon photographers worldwide are using DPP for their post-processing requirements. With this in mind I'm going to spend more time with DPP over the next couple of months to see how I can apply the Canon application and to what extend it could have any improvements on my post-processing outcomes compared to Adobe Lightroom.

Focus Stacking in Macro and Close-Up Photography

In Macro and Close-Up photography we are challenged with a very narrow Depth of Field (DOF) in creating a sharp image (and providing for more and / or less out of focus areas). In order for extending the DOF across the image image or part of the subject(s) in the frame photographers use focus stacking for achieving a more desired / sharp result.

Stacking is a technique of taking a few images at different focus points of the same subject(s) and then merging the images in a software program.

Stacking is not limited to Macro lenses and can be done with any lens - it is also useful in landscape photography.


Focus Stacking Example

I've done a quick example to show one image in the stacking sequence (21 images) and then the final merged image. Stacking is very popular for individual subjects i.e. flowers or other smaller / still subjects for increasing sharpness across the subject / frame.

Image One: (image 1 of 21 images) I focused on the middle crayon's tip at f/8 (notice the blurriness of the rest of the crayons), and eventually captured 21 images focusing on different areas of the crayons at the same aperture.

Image Two: the result of the 21 merged images creating a shaper image across the frame (which will not be possible even if I used f/16 + at the distance / magnification I was shooting at).



Focusing: I used the Canon EOS 6D / 100mm Macro lens in AF / Live View mode and captured all 21 images at different focus areas.

Please note: in many cases we want out of focus areas for highlighting a specific part of the subject.

Canon Equipment Used


  • Canon EOS 6D
  • Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro Lens
  • Canon Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II flash

Stacking Software used: Zerene Stacker V1.04

Common shelduck - Woodbridge Island, Cape Town

Heading home after a Birds in Flight photography session I spotted this duck for the first time ever at Woodbridge Island. Not sure what duck species I went home and identified the duck as the Common shelduck - with some assistance from the very knowledgeable bird photographers / bird watchers over on the Birdlife South Africa Face Book Page.

Common shelduck captured with Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens.

Due to the distance the image quality is unfortunately not that great.
