Wild flowers with Canon EOS 6D / EF 70-300mm lens (and Canon Extension Tube)
During this morning's training we ‘focussed’ on larger apertures photographing wild flowers in the morning sun. The sun may have been a little high (bright / over-exposing areas of the flowers) for this type of photography training (but, we had to get through some aperture theory first).

While my client was experimenting with various larger apertures I took quick advantage of the time / light to take a couple of snapshots with my setup.

Advantage of an Extension Tube:
It reduced the minimum focus distance (MFD) between the lens and the subject. Not to be confused with a close-up lens filter. The close-up filter also functions with the Autofocus / other electronics of the camera and lens / paring. I personally find the extension tube to be more effective for this type of photography (and easier to use) than the lens close-up filter (with more of a objective to act as n pseudo macro lens).

It can take a while to become comfortable using an extension tube / or close-up lens filter ito distance and what apertures to use.

It can be a very cost-effective addition for ‘close-up’ work in reasonable light. It is much cheaper to use an extension tube that to purchase a macro lens, especially if you’re only going yo use a macro lens a few times a year.

Advantage of using a Full Frame camera for Flower Photography:
Due to its larger sensor compered to the APS-C (crop) sensor it captures more light and provides more background blur. The quality of the background blur (bokeh) should also reder superior results than an APS-C (crop) sensor - depending on the lens used.

An APS-C (crop sensor) could have its own advantages of creating more magnification (as my client experimented with). This will depend on the (quality / focal length) of the lens used.

Purple heron getting ready to fly

Purple Heron
Over the weekend I made reference to a purple heron in flight on the Birdlife South Africa Facebook Group (in flight – against the backdrop of Table Mountain) that they rather keep to themselves. Over the years I have had few opportunities to see them close-up and always ended up photographing them in flight.

I’ve never seen a purple heron not in flight – here we have a purple heron next to a small pond close to The Paddocks Shopping Centre in Millerton (about 5 km’s from where I see / photograph them overhead at Woodbridge Island).

This was a long-range record shot with a 'close-up' camera kit predominantly setup for flower photography, but was pleased to see the heron next to the pond – also concerned that they venture into busy suburban (traffic / people) areas. At least the small park is fairly well maintained.

Canon Kit Used:
  • Canon EOS 6D
  • Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L ISM USM Lens (Just managed to remove the extension tube in time)

Exposure Settings:
  • Av Mode
  • Aperture: f/5.6
  • Shutter Speed: 1/400s

Learning Photography in the Comfort of your own Home / Garden

Private Nature Photography Training Cape Town / Cape Peninsula

Vernon Chalmers Canon Camera and Small Bird Photography Training Cape Peninsula
Cape Bulbul : Small Garden Bird Photography in Cape Town / Cape Peninsula

Canon EOS / EOS R / Powershot Camera and Photography Training Sessions across the Cape Peninsula.

I recently started an initiative where I travel to clients for facilitating my private Canon Camera / Photography Training Sessions in the comfort of their own homes and / or garden environments.

This type of training is most suitable for garden birds, butterfly and flower photography. Many other close-up subjects will also be discussed and / or photographed. Practical training sessions could be in-house / in the garden or at Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden (also for incorporating some landscape photography if required). Birds in Flight photography training practical will depend on proximity to areas where there are birds in flight to photograph. Birds in Flight sessions at Woodbridge Island could also be worked into a private programme (if required).

Morning training sessions are always recommended, but other options are also available.

Private Photography Training Costs
The costs for any traveling training is the same as offered in my studio at Milnerton with an added cost-effective / pro-rata traveling cost for covering fuel expenses. Individual traveling costs will be calculated relevant to client address distance from my studio in Milnerton. Morning training sessions are always recommended, but other options are also available.

From R750 per 4 hour session for Canon EOS / EOS R photographers. Rates for Canon Powershot photographers will always be slightly less - specific cost will depending on the PowerShot camera used. This is the same rate structure as used in-studio in Milnerton / Woodbridge Island. Practical shooting sessions will be integrated into the training.

A typical training programme of three training sessions (x 4 to 5 hours) For EOS / EOS R cameras is R2 000-00 (excluding traveling costs). One or two longer sessions may also be considered.

Small Group Photography Workshops Cape Town / Cape Peninsula:
Small group photography workshops of i.e. 2 to 5+ delegates with Canon EOS / EOS R / PowerShot cameras and lenses) are also options (if it can be arranged by the group). Logistics, location and other costs will be calculated to make it more cost-effective per delegate. Please note during these workshops Canon PowerShot photographers will pay the same rate as all other delegates (with EOS / EOS R cameras).

Unlock as much value as possible from your (long) lens…

Creative Bird / Flower Photography Cape Town with Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens

For birding we often want to go as ‘long’ as we can as far as our lenses are concerned – often forgetting what else is ‘in closer view’ to capture the natural beauty around…

Taking Advantage of Early Morning African Light for Birds in Flight Photography

What I have learned over the years is not always to change a lens, purchase a new lens (or camera) for various subjects, but to extract as much value as possible from the camera / lens in hand – at any given moment.

All four images captured with the same camera / 400mm lens and (birds in flight) settings at Woodbridge Island / Table Bay Nature Reserve, Cape Town

Client Assistance when Purchasing / Replacing Camera Equipment

For Clients in Cape Town / Cape Peninsula / Rest of SA/  Around the World

Client Assistance when Purchasing / Replacing Canon Camera Equipment

Assistance when Purchasing / Replacing Canon Camera Equipment
It could be quite a daunting exercise to decide on replacing a current Canon body and / or EF / EF-S (or compatible) lenses with either another EOS APS-C (Crop) or Full Frame body (or lenses) - or change your entire EOS System to an EOS R Mirrorless body and RF lens System (while retaining some older lenses). There are also a few in-between options.

The objective is to assist the photographer to inform him or her on my recommendations / thoughts on various options and combinations that could potentially function best with current and future photography requirements.

Please note that any of my photography training clients (from over the past 10 years) are welcome to WhatsApp me free of any charges on the following WhatsApp Number should you require any advice and or recommendation(s) on your camera equipment.

I may not always be immediately available to answer your question(s) or respond to your request(s), but will do so as soon as I am available. I will make contract with you for discussing your specific questions, requests and / or concerns.

Please note that I do not sell any new or used Canon equipment (on behalf of anyone else) and do not make any specific recommendations on any retailers where you should purchase / sell / trade-in your Canon equipment (or compatible accessories).

Glorious Bird Photography Morning | Table Bay Nature Reserve

African Spoonbill Table Bay Nature Reserve Woodbridge Island Vernon Chalmers Photography
African Spoonbill Table Bay Nature Reserve
Another glorious morning along the Diep River, Table Bay Nature Reserve, Woodbridge Island . This morning I was greeted by the black-headed heron, the Cape spurfowls, quite a few grey herons, yellow-billed ducks, Egyptian geese and an African spoonbill or two.

A Cape bulbul poked his head out from the reeds and I had an opportunity to see the Cape teal ducks and yellow-billed ducks frolicking in the early morning sun.

Birds of the morning:
  • Afican spoonbill
  • Little egret in flight
  • Cape teal duck in flight
  • African sacred ibis
  • Pied crow
