Wall Filler!

I have been completely impressed with the image quality of the 5d2, but hadn’t pushed it too much in print size just yet. I am sorry if this is a repeat to those on Facebook, but I wanted to let everyone know that most of my images in the past year have been taken with the 5d2, and those should all look great at 40″x60″.  And to show you, here is Mangrove Magic, as a gallery wrapped canvas. It is as wide as a queen sized bed, if anyone has an empty space up there.  I really wish I could print all my 5d2 files this big, because it is awesome to see them at this size.

Image of the Month: March 2010-Wild American Flamingo

Sometimes said to be the same as the Greater  Flamingo, most taxonomists now regard it as a separate species.  Sightings in the Everglades and Southern Florida are rare and many are considered to be escapees from the Hialeah Race track. One specimen banded in the Yucatan Peninsula was sighted in the Everglades, so I like to believe these were birds of wild origin. Regardless, this specimen and 4 of its friends were found in the Everglades in the winter of 2008.  The whole trip is written about here. For March you can purchase this image at discounted rates.

Image of the Month: February 2010, Little Sea Turtle

I have decided to start doing an image of the month, where I give a little info on an image and offer it at a discounted price for that month. So to kick-start it, this macro of  a baby sea turtle is up for February 2010.

This image was made back in August 2009, shortly after sunrise. My friend Rick Gomez had found it trapped in a tide-pool up by Blowing Rocks, in Jupiter, Florida.  It is illegal to touch them, but we decided that these little guys need all the help they can get, and so we picked it up and released it at a less rocky area of the beach. I believe about 1 in 100 survive to adulthood, and 1 in 1000 actually get to breed.

I used my Tamron 180 macro, and got down on my elbows and fired away hoping for some sharp shots in the low light. The rough rock took a toll on my elbows, but when you are in the moment, things like that don’t really register. Mosquitoes on the other hand, are pretty hard to ignore. I was lucky to get a handful of shots to pick through and liked this the best. In larger prints you can see the sky and fading sunrise colors in the sea turtle’s eye.

Buy a Print Follow-up

In this post I mentioned how Jim Goldstein started a project to buy a print from your favorite photographer. I participated and have finally had it framed. I had another print stored so I framed them the same as I thought they went really well together. So here they are:

Under the Aspen Tree by Guy Tal

Sometime Last Century by Tony Kuyper

Both are inspiring photographers and I am glad I have something to look at besides my own photos. =)
