Henry’s Kanata Free Photowalks

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

Each month I hold a free photowalk on behalf of Canadian photographic retailer Henry’s. Just yesterday I led a macro workshop with the help of camera guru Quinn Brown (from The Almost Friday Show fame) at Ottawa’s Mud Lake in Brittania’s Conservation Area. During these free events Henry’s supplies free demo equipment for use during the outing, so on hand we had some nice Sigma 70mm f/2.8 Macro lenses, close-up filters, 50mm inversion rings, a Nikon 105mm f/2.8 VR lens and a Canon 100mm f/2.8 I.S. L lens. During these workshops I guide attendees through different photographic aspects of each subject matter with their equipment (or equipment they have borrowed) to acheive the best possible results. See below for images from this 3hr outing:

Dragonflies are a type of insect belonging to the order Odonata, the suborder Epiprocta or, in the strict sense, the infraorder Anisoptera. They have large multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong transparent wings, and an elongated body. (Stephen Harrison)

June’s workshop was an Action photography workshop at Kanata’s Skateboard Park on Terry Fox Dr. Nikon Canada was kind enough to loan us a Nikon D3s camera body for the event. Henry’s lent some nice fast f/2.8 glass such as 24-70’s and 70-200mm lenses.
