In this episode of the podcast I cover the fact that photo gear really does matter. That doesn't mean that you can't start learning photography with any gear you have on hand. It simply means that in certain situations gear can mean getting the shot or not. Find the photos here: http://cdevroe.com/2020/01/15/downy-woodpecker-november-2019/
In this episode I visit a dam that isn't very far from where I live, though this is the first time I've ever seen it. Just above the dam were a ton of birds. Be sure to follow the link to the photos.

I'd been wanting to use the Monochrome picture style in my Canon camera but hadn't found the right subject. Until this day, when the sun was still relatively high in the sky, and I remembered how Nick Carver took advantage of these less than stellar photographic conditions to make black and white photos in the desert. I don't have sand dunes or cacti available to me so I thought of using these anthracite culm piles as my sand dunes.
I am happy with how the first photograph came out. But I'd like another crack at these, and a few different compositions, with a lens hood.

I hike deep into a nearby preserve and talk a little bit about how I crowd my subjects too much.
In this episode I head north up Greenfield Road, take a few photos of a heron eating, speak to Walt and ask him if for permission to shoot on his property and genuinely have a great time. Forgive the audio. It's worth it.
