Nuttall's Woodpeckers and House Finches

Today I got some bird photos for you guys. :) There are two photos of the Nuttall's Woodpecker (Picoides nuttallii) and two photos of the House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus). I hope you enjoy them. I know it's a tiny post, mainly because I want to still have photos to post while I work on the Lake Tahoe photos. XD

The Nuttall's Woodpecker photos were taken on the Arroyo Del Valle trail (the trail that I call the Pleasanton Trail). Arroyo Del Valle trail is located in Pleasanton, California. I go there very often as this trail is very close to my house.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To see my best bird photos of 2012, use this link. To see my best photos of Pleasanton in 2012, use this link. To see all of my photos from Pleasanton in 2012, use this link.

This was the first time I spot this bird... It was hard to get a good angle because there was always a branch in the way. Good thing I got two good photos of it. :) Isn't it a cute bird?

Another photo. :) Anyways, here is a tip for all you bird photographers. Use aperture priority and open up your aperture wide!

The House Finch photos were taken at Shadow Cliff Regional Park. Shadow Cliff Regional Park is also located in Pleasanton, California. I do not go to this park that often, the park is very small, not much walking. I actually prefer the Del Valle Regional Park in Livermore.

This is a female House Finch. How do I know? The female birds usually look all the same (my opinion). Females are usually less colorful and vibrant than the males. 

This is the male House Finch. I've seen this bird many times. See my House Finch photos from Quarry Lakes Regional Park last year here.

I hope you have enjoyed today's post. Like I say, nature is very beautiful. Feeling sad or depressed? Go into nature and take a walk, it helps out a lot. Breathe the fresh air, mother nature will always fix you up. :) Well anyways, don't forget to share this blog post with your friends and "Like" us on Facebook! I have more bird photos coming up and Lake Tahoe photos. Due to my procrastination my Taiwan photos have not even been touched yet. Hopefully I will find time. LOL

Canada Goose (Branta canadensis)

Like I said last time, today's post will be on birds. :) Today I have 5 photos of the Canada Goose (Branta canadensis). The photos was taken at Shadow Cliff Regional Park in Pleasanton, CA (I accidentally wrote Del Valle Regional Park in Livermore, CA before).

Fun Facts: The Canada Goose is everywhere in North America. There are also at least 11 subspecies of Canada Goose that have been recognized including the Crackling Goose.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To see my best bird photos of 2011, use this link.  To view my best Shadow Cliff Regional Park photos, use this link. To view all of my Shadow Cliff Regional Park photos of 2011, use this link.

I can't believe I actually caught the goose about to take off. :P My reaction times are usually really off. LOL

Photography Tip: Generally for photos like the one above, put your camera in shutter priority, turn it to a fast shutter speed, and do a few test shots. Make sure the photos come out correctly. Then point your camera at the bird and wait. Yes, I know your arms will probably hurt holding it that long, but it takes practice. That is how you get a photo of a bird taking off. If you are just starting off and practicing try it on bigger birds first, bigger birds are probably easier as small birds fly off faster.

The bird off to the right side is an American Coot. Those are also very common around the Bay Area.



Generally a circular polarizer can help get rid of the water reflections. At the time of the photo, I did not have a circular polarizer, but I have one now. I will show you the effects in future posts. :)


I got more bird photos (including Canada Geese photos). I recently headed to Lake Tahoe and took photos. Not a lot of snow this year, but the views are still very good. I guess you can say, some rare views. That is because there are ice and a little bit of snow, but not as much as before. Not everyday you can see views like that. Please check back! Also please don't forget to leave me a comment and share the blog post with your friends! Also "Like" us on Facebook to be updated when I post up more photos.

Alliance Redwoods

Like I said a while back, I actually went to Alliance Redwoods recently. Alliance Redwoods is a Christian retreat located in Occidental, CA. It's not I'm Christian or anything, but my parents are and they wanted to listen to a speech there, so I decided to tag along because I heard it was on a mountain top and I thought I can get some great photos. I was right. Here are the rest of the photos I took. If you missed out on the photos I posted before you can find them in the following two blog posts.
I hope you enjoy them! If you get the chance, maybe you should head up the mountains there. It is really beautiful and the air is very fresh. :)

A bear! :P



Judging by the campground name, I'm guessing those are giant redwood trees. I'll be honest here, I suck at remembering the names of things. XD



Close up shot of the moss on the tree.

Another shot of the giant trees.

Alright, I admit I didn't feel so comfortable going to a Christan campground, but I agree I had a great time. The air was fresh, and it was nice to get out of the city environment for a while. I really love nature, and that is part of the reason why I do photography. If you are one of those people who just stays on the computer all day, you know, get out once in a while, go hiking, go take some photos, it's good for your health. :) Anyways, thanks for reading today's post, I hope you have enjoyed it! My next blog post will probably be on birds.

Wild Turkeys

Like I promised last time, today's post will be on birds. :) So, the other day, on way to Del Valle Regional Park, I saw a flock of turkeys on both sides of the road. So I stopped and took some photos. :) I even shot a few photos of them in flight, but only one was clear and usable.

All photos today was taken in manual. Setting it in aperture priority was messing up the shutter speed, so I had to mess with the options in manual. It resulted in lesser photos, but at least most of them were usable. I only have 4 photos today, hope you enjoy them! Del Valle Regional Park is located in Livermore, CA.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing.

This was probably the best photo I shot of the turkey.

Turkey crossing the street. By the way, there were at least a hundred turkeys on the side of the road. They were eating, what I guess is grass. HAHA Cute! They weren't scared of me at all. 

This one started running because I car was coming. The car stopped and waited while the some 20 turkeys crossed the road. LOL

Later the rest of the flock flew away. I quickly increased the ISO and decreased my shutter speed for the in flight birds. This was the only "usable" photo I had as the rest were blurry. I was really surprised I even got one! Really gotta thank my Canon EOS 7D for its fast shutter speeds. LOL

That all for the turkey photos. I hope I will get to see more turkeys in the future. :) They are really cute birds. Don't chirp that loud though, they were all like Gobble Gobble. HAHA Too bad I didn't get these photos before Thanksgiving, would have been more fit for the holiday. Oh well! Hope you have enjoyed these photos!

Squirrels on Pleasanton Trail (Part 2)

If you read my blog a lot you probably notice I post a lot of Pleasanton Trail photos. This is because the Pleasanton Trail is very close to my house and I take walks over there everyday. There are lot's of squirrels on the trail probably due to all the blackberry bushes and the walnut trees there. When you walk on the trail, generally you will see a bunch of them eating walnuts. I took a total of 13 photos of them and will split them into 2 blog posts. The Pleasanton Trail as the name says is located in Pleasanton, California.

If you missed my blog post last time on the Red-tailed hawk I saw on Pleasanton Trail, you can see it here.

Part: 1 | 2

I'm sorry I am so late in doing a new post. For yesterday and today, I had some issues and trying to complain to Customer Support and stuff. You know how those things go down, I'm sorry, I'll have to transfer you to another agent, and you have to explain your problem again. Then you get a stupid headache and forget about your blog. HAHA I had two problems total, one is solved, the other one not yet... Anyways, here are the rest of the squirrel photos I took on the Pleasanton Trail. :)

What a fat squirrel? Cute. HAHA

I wonder how squirrels get fat off of walnuts. Hm...

Cute squirrel. :P I only got one photo of it before it ran off.


So many walnut trees... 

Another photo.

I wish my camera would stop picking such high ISO speeds... But again, adjusting the ISO manually is kind of a pain? LOL Maybe I just didn't master the camera controls yet.

Another squirrel picture.

That is all the squirrel photos I took this time. I might take more next time. The next blog post will probably be on birds. :) Hope you have enjoyed today's post. Again, I'm sorry for posting so late. Please share the blog post with your friends!

Part: 1 | 2

So today, I will post a total of 6 photos of squirrels I saw there. Also, none of the photos were touched up. They are the original photo. I cropped them down a bit for some of them though.

I think this is the best squirrel photo I have ever taken. Isn't it cute. ^_^

Okay, I'm going to say this and if you know the answer, please tell me. So at first I thought the squirrel was probably taking a midday nap, but its eyes were open. So I went up to like 8 feet in front of it and waved. It did nothing. Then I moved in closer to about 5 feet, it just lifted its head up just a little, then put it down again and looked it it went back to sleep? But it had its eyes open still... This also happened with another squirrel. Usually the squirrels on the trail runs when you get closer than 8 feet. Well if you can guess the reason, tell me in the comments below. Also nice photo right? LOL

It's all like where you come from? HAHA


Look at it scratching itself... I was surprised I actually got a shot of it doing that.

 This photo makes the squirrel look like an acrobat.

 Squirrel standing on walnut tree eating a walnut. Lot's of walnut trees...


So yeah, like I said above. Tomorrow's post will also be squirrels. So check back. Also, please leave me some comments below if you liked the photos! Make sure you share the blog post with your friends too! Thanks for looking.

The Moon

The moon, Earth's only natural occurring satellite. A giant piece of rock floating in outer space. It is a wonderful site. Although it doesn't emit light of it's own, it reflects light from the sun so we can see at night. I recently taken some moon photos from my house, including the full moon. I hope you like them! I missed the lunar eclipse, sorry. One night of no sleep and I have very bad headache the next day, so I didn't say up. HAHA

These photos was all taken with my Canon EOS 7D at 300mm on my USM lens. I will tell you what settings I used under each photo. Hopefully it will help you take some better photos yourself! :) Also, click the photo to see the full size.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing here.

Anyways, this photo, it says I used 280mm focal length. This is the only exception.

Shutter Speed: 1/250 of second
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO: 100

Mode: Shutter Priority

SDXC Cards in your EOS 7D


Hello guys, do you hate the costly prices of CF cards? Do you want to get a lot more storage and speed with the new SDXC cards? Worry no more! Today's post is a camera hack, I will help you use your SDXC card on your Canon EOS 7D, 5D, 1D, or other similar cameras!

Disclaimer: You follow these tips and instructions at your own risk! The author of the blog is not responsible for any damages that may result from these instructions. These tips and instructions are provided for educational and informative purposes only.  

First of all here are the three things you will need:
  1. A Canon EOS 7D, 5D, 1D, or other similar camera.
  2. A CF to SD adapter. (I recommend this one, it is also the one I'm showing in the image above.)
  3. A SDXC Card. (The one in the picture above is the Lexar Professional 64GB SDXC.)
Alright now, first of all, insert the SDXC card into your adapter then put it into your camera. Right now, it will tell you the card needs to be reformatted in order to be used. I know the SD card website tells you not to do it, but do it anyways. This will format your SDXC card into FAT32 file system. The original file system is exFAT. So you might be wondering if this is safe right? See the following reasons:
  1. Your write and read speed is untouched.
  2. Same amount of storage (as for me 64GB).
  3. Only difference now is you will be limited to 4GB per file (This is a filesystem limit, can't be fixed.). Photos you take will never be that big, don't worry.
  4. You can always format it back into exFAT on a computer if you ever need to store something over 4GB on it.
There you go, after you format the card, your camera should read it. You have a very large storage on your camera now! Hope you enjoy it. Also some reviews for the products I've shown above.

The adapter I'm using, I think is the best, but this is the first one I've bought. I would recommend it. Unlike other adapters I saw online, this one has no speed issues, and is compatible with SDXC cards. Which is great. On my EOS 7D, I had no problems with shooting videos or taking RAWs with this one. It works as if I had a real CF card in there. Only one complaint as with all adapters like this, you have to take the adapter out of your camera first, before you can take out the SD card. Doesn't affect the quality though. The other thing I noticed after using it a bit (I tried to do some high speed photography), after 10 shots, I took out the adapter and it felt warm to the touch, but no speed problem. So I'm guessing there could be a small chance with over heating, but  I would still recommend it if you plan on having a back up flash memory.

Now for the Lexar Professional 64GB SDXC, I have already tested this thing out on my camera. I can take over 1000 RAW + JPEG (High Quality) photos on my camera! No problem. Also the write and read speed is amazing. If you always shoot in RAW, I would totally recommend this.

Of course I do not use this adapter as my main storage. I also have an 8GB CF card, but with my RAW photo shooting, it will exhaust that memory card quick! So if you are like me who take a lot of photos, or do RAW, get these! It works great as a backup memory card and SD cards cost like 2/3 the price of CF cards and they work a lot faster.

Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis)

Today I got some photos of what I believe is a Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis). If I'm wrong, please correct me. The hawk was spotted on the Pleasanton Trail in Pleasanton, California. So I was taking a walk on Pleasanton Trail, almost at dusk (that is why the photos look a bit grainy), when I saw a giant bird land on a tree about 500 feet away from me! I quickly zoomed in onto it my camera, and took several shots. Then I kept my focus on it just in case it wants to fly off, but it didn't. So anyways here are the photos I took of it. All these photos was taken using Aperture Priority at 5.6 /f with spot metering. The photos were cropped and watermarked in Photoshop, but not touched-up.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To see my best photos of Pleasanton in 2011, use this link. To see my best photos of bird photos from 2011, use this link. To see all of my photos from Pleasanton in 2011, use this link.

You know what came to my mind when I first saw this photo on my computer? The creepy eyes are staring at you... XD

Good birdy. I was hoping it was going to fly off and I'd get a good photo, but it didn't. Sadly. :( I guess its nest was there, it was pretty late. All the birds were going home.


Final photo of this bird. My other photos had the wrong focus, so I didn't post them.

That's all for today! I still got squirrel photos, bird photos, and Redwood Alliance photos to come! Make sure you check back! Oh yes, I almost forgot, once I get a photo of the full moon, I will be posting those up too! They turned out very very nice! Hope you liked today's post! See you next time. Don't forget to share with your friends and "Like" us on Facebook!

Oh yes, I almost forgot, I recently bought a Nikon Micro Fiber Cleaning Cloth and a Giottos Rocket Air Blaster, I will be writing a review for them on this blog in a few days. I tell you, if you are serious about photography, those two things are a must have! They are cheap and gets your lens cleaned as good as new! I just got it and used them to clean my lens. They were free of fingerprints and dust in a few seconds! If you already have these, use my method of blow, wipe, and blow. Works really well. Please remember to check back for my review! :)

Tips on Winter Photography

Photo taken near Reno/Lake Tahoe in Nevada.

It is winter again, and you know what that means! Lot's of gift giving, shopping, and an extremely jolly time of the year. In some parts of the world there will be snow and lot's of it! It is the time of year where people go skiing, snowboarding, playing in the snow, and for photographers, snow photography! One issue a lot of photographers get into while taking pictures of snow is the "Greying Effect". See the photo below if you don't know what it is. The "Greying Effect" ruins a lot of photos, even for people who are not photographers! So now your question is probably how do I get my photos to look like the one above instead of the one below? In today's post I will offer you some tips on how to prevent the "Greying Effect" and some other tips on how to protect your camera equipment while you are out in such a cold environment.

The left show the "Greying Effect", the right shows how snow should look like. Big difference right?

So why does the "Greying Effect" happen? To effectively teach you how to get rid of this problem, I will need to educate you on why it happens. So usually when you take a photo, your camera weighs in the different colors and light of the scene you try to take. When you try to do snow photography, most of the light coming into the camera will be white. So the problem actually happens here, when this much white light enters the camera, the camera will think you are trying to take a picture of an extremely over-exposed 18% grey object. So the camera tries to compensate it by lowering the exposure, hence making the snow grey! There are several ways to fix this problem.

Disclaimer: You follow these tips at your own risk! The author of the blog is not responsible for any damages that may result from these instructions. These tips are provided for educational and informative purposes only. 


Exposure Compensation
This might not be available to some of the more low end cameras, but is the most effective in preventing the greying effect. So first of all, you will need to put your camera into a mode where you are allowed to adjust the exposure compensation number. Then you will need to locate the option on your camera, usually marked with an icon that shows a black and white square with a + and - sign in it. Now increase the exposure compensation and take a shot, do this until the image looks satisfactory and the "Greying Effect" has disappeared. Generally you will have to increase the exposure compensation by +1 or +2 to compensate for the camera's under-exposure.

Beginner explanation on why this works: Since the "Greying Effect" is caused by your camera underexposing your image, by putting your exposure compensation at +1, this tells your camera, what ever exposure the sensor tells you to use, add 1 on top of it.

Open the Aperture
Another method, although I would not highly recommend it as this method will definitely put some blur on your image, is to use aperture priority (Av or A) or manual (M) and open up the aperture by 1-2 f-stops and then compensate exposure for +1 to +2 stops. By opening up, you compensate for the prolonged exposure time. This feature might not be available on some low end cameras.

Use a Snow Scene Mode
For a change, this feature may not be available on some of the high-end cameras (LOL). This method is very amateur-ish and not needed by professionals. Also, this method I do not highly recommend as it may overexpose some of your photos. You can do this by setting your camera to a "scene" mode specifically designed for snow. This may fix the "Greying Effect", but may also overexpose your photo, I recommend my first 2 methods.

Fixing Your Old Photos in Photoshop
Those are the methods for preventing the "Greying Effect". So now you are probably wondering, what do I do now with my old ruined photos? Throw them away? No need to fear, Photoshop will come to your rescue. It doesn't matter whether you shot it in RAW or JPEG, just raise the exposure of your shot by around +1 stop and save.
    Protecting Your Camera and Equipment In Cold Climates
    Those are the tips for preventing the problem, now let's move onto how to protect your camera equipment in cold weather. Don't think this is easy, because it is not! One mistake can ruin your camera and lens! These tips are more targeted towards DSLR owners, not so much for you guys with a small point-and-shoot.
    1. First rule, I know it is easy to forget, but don't put your camera under your jacket in a cold climate. When moving your camera from a cold place to a warm place, or vice versa, condensation may gather on your lens (including the inside), and it may damage your equipment! When going from a cold place back to a warm place (like hotel), before you go back, make sure you take out your battery and memory card, then put your camera back in the bag. After you arrived at the hotel, leave your camera in your bag for at least 2 to 3 hours before you open it up. If you don't have a camera bag, use a Zip-lock bag. Make sure you take out your battery and memory card before you go back so you don't get tempted to open up your camera bag before the camera is allowed adequate time to warm up. The 2 to 3 hour rule usually works for people who are going to Alaska or place with similar climate. If you are going to Reno like me, 1 hour tops because it isn't as cold and your camera will warm up or cool down faster. 
    2. Warm up your battery. A warmer battery will work longer than a cold battery due to the chemical reactions (I think). So for professionals, some people will keep and extra battery in their pocket to warm it up, and then they will keep switching the batteries to get more life out of it. Make sure you don't keep change in the same pocket though, I seen a comment on another blog of a guy accidentally shorting out the battery and burning a hole in his pants...
    3. And as for tip number one, try not to use the heater in your car, just wear more clothes. I think I explained it pretty clearly in tip 1 why, so not going to do it again. Another way, put your camera in a cooler, so it stays the same temperature as when you put it in, then when you need to take a photo, you can just take it out of there. 
    4. If you are going to Alaska or a place of similar climate, try not to exhale onto your camera, your breath will instantly become a thin layer of frost!
    Well that's all the tips! I hope you have enjoyed the tips on winter photography. Please don't forget to share this article with your friends and leave a comment!

    The Beauty of Fall Leaves

    It's that time of the year again, leaves turn red and yellow and start falling. For trees, I think fall the the most beautiful time of the year. A lot of people probably dread the coming of fall, because there will be a lot of raking for the falling leaves, but for a photographer, fall is a magnificent time of year! Today's post will be dedicated to the beauty of fall leaves. All the photos today (with exception of one) was taken at Alliance Redwoods in Occidental, CA. I recently went there with my parents because they wanted to hear a speech. You can check out my last post on Alliance Redwoods here. Also, none of the photos today was touched up in Photoshop (other than the watermark).

    Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To see my best photos from Occidental, CA, use this link. To see all of my photos from Occidental, CA, use this link. To see my best autumn foliage shots, use this link.

    A close up macro shot of the red fall leaves.

    Photography tip: For macro shots like this, it is generally good to take the photo in Aperture Priority (Av or A) mode and set your camera to use a wide aperture (small f-stop number). Experiment with the f-stop until you get a satisfactory photo. Photography is all about experience!

    Another close up shot. You know what's weird? Isn't fall suppose to start like in October or something? It just occurred to me, the leaves around SF Bay Area didn't turn red until late November! Weird. LOL

    This was the exception I was talking about. The above photo was not taken at Alliance Redwoods, instead it was taken on the Pleasanton Trail. As the trail name mentions, the trail is located in Pleasanton, CA. At the time of taking the photo, I only had my zoom lens with me, so I had to back up a lot before I was able to get the shot! But still, turned out better than I thought.

    Need camera accessories? Check these out!

    A beautiful shot doesn't always have to be a leaf still on a tree! This is a photo of a red leaf that fell and landed on a bush underneath. What a great balance between the red and green right? :) Well, I touched up this photo with Photoshop just a little bit. I enhanced the colors, because the original didn't turn out too well.

    A shot of a whole tree that turned yellow and red.

    Another shot of the tree. I am guessing the trees behind are Redwood trees because the retreat is called Alliance Redwoods. LOL

    I will have more Alliance Redwoods photos coming on this blog in a few days! Please check back! I hope you have enjoyed today's post. Please leave a comment for me! Also, if you liked it, please don't forget to "Like" us on Facebook! You can also do that in the Facebook box at the top of the right sidebar.

    Update (12-16-2011): I have posted up the rest of my Alliance Redwoods photos. They can be viewed here.
