Little Rays Reptiles Gallery

Over the last few years we as a family have been visiting Little Ray’s Reptiles here in Ottawa. Since they renovated the zoo is even better. I think the only thing that could have been better would have been if the building was bigger. Mind you they have utilized the space much better. The new displays are easy to read and have a lot of great info.

Another trip to Little Ray’s

Hey everyone, it has been a while since I posted. Actually I have been posting more often on 500px check it out. Any way this weekend the family took a drive over to Little Ray’s Reptile zoo. It is a family fav and their new display Venom was great. Learned that Canada is home to three different rattlesnakes. Plus the most venomous snake is also the least dangerous of them all. A lot of great info and some new pets in the feed demo and hands on demo.

Another Hike

walk-3

Went for another walk today. Didn’t see as much snakes this time but still saw some to take some images. There were a few more flowers in bloom too so I took a few shots of those. Along the walk there were some rock sculptures and of course the area was full of ponds and large water masses.

Again while practicing getting really sharp images, my wife poses her eye with my camera just inches away on a tripod and lightboxes a foot away. As you all can see my wife has very beautiful eyes.

Close up with a 50mm

Went for a walk with the family this weekend and a brought my new 50mm 1.fG along for the trip. I spent some time shooting people but on the way back home spotted this little patch of mushrooms on the path. So I decided to try to see how well the 50mm would focus up close. This is result. Added a little vignetting and voila!

Enjoy the image until next time keep shooting.

Took a walk this sunday around the neighbourhood and brought my camera with my 105mm f2.8 VR with my new R1C1 lighting kit hooked up.

I am still experimenting with it but so far I like the results. It is interesting having two flashes at the end of your lens that light up an object or subject just enough. Any way I thought I would share this image that I took some Lightroom liberties to.

Enjoy!
