TVNZ personality and Seven Sharp host Mike Hosking is the subject of a petition to remove him from prime time TV. Isn't there an argument in favour of people like Hosking and diversity of opinion?A  I have heard a lot of this argument.
I have been a wildlife and travel photographer using Canon equipment for about 25 years now.
This lens is great for wide angle landscape shots on full frame cameras like the 1Ds Mk III or EOS-5D Mk III. This is my favorite EF-S lens and will go great with the EOS-7D camera as a general purpose lens. With its unique focal length range, this lens is the widest fisheye zoom lens available on the market.
This is a super sharp, fast lens for close-up wildlife action, with IS providing up to four stops of correction at all focal lengths.
I held off on buying this lens for awhile, because the EF 70-300mm DO was such a disappointment for me.
When I am restricted to just one lens or it is impractical to change lenses in the middle of a shoot, I reach for the EF 28-300mm. What would you recommend for shooting wide angle landscapes but also having a zoom lens to be able to capture wildlife further away?

Knowing that silhouettes can only be taken against the light, can you guess where I should go to to create a silhouette of the windmill? If you look at this image more closely, you will notice that the sun is positioned behind the bottom blade.
If you are in an open space outdoors, it will be a lot easier to shoot against the light if the sun is low above the horizon. Shooting against the light is a little different indoors where the brightest light usually comes from the outside (windows, open doors, end of  a tunnel, etc.). In this photo bright light is coming from behind the boy, thus creating an interesting silhouette. In many cases iPhone’s automatic exposure will be sufficient to create a beautiful silhouette. In situations like these it is best to use a professional camera app that allows you to separate focus and exposure. I kinda wanted to take a photo of my OWN silhouette since nobody else is on hand…but this was really helpful as well. Now that most of the heavy lifting is out of the way, let's look at how creeping junipers can be used to beautify steep hills and other spots in your yard.
I have incorporated this photo into my piece to illustrate the point that creeping juniper isn't just for steep hills in out-of-the-way places. These folks decided to plant two tough ground covers around their mailbox: creeping juniper and a golden sedum. I like the look of greenery cascading down a hillside and spilling over the edge of a wall, as in this picture.
I found the juniper plant in this photo growing wild on Cadillac Mountain, Bar Harbor, Maine.
I encountered the little plant in the picture growing wild while on a visit to Cadillac Mountain in Bar Harbor, Maine. It's akin to saying there is a bottle store at the end of the street, if don't want the booze then just keep walking. Through the decades, I have used almost all of Canon’s cropped and full frame cameras and their EF and EF-S lenses.
This lens is always on my EOS-1D X or EOS-1D Mk IV cameras when I take travel or close-up wildlife shots. This is not an inexpensive lens, but the build and image quality are first rate, and the constant aperture across the zoom range is great for capturing images in low light conditions.


It delivers a 180 degree diagonal angle of view images for all EOS SLR cameras with imaging formats ranging from full-frame to APS-C, and provides 180 degree circular fisheye images for full-frame EOS models. This versatile 10X+ zoom lens has very good optical performance and can focus down to less than two and a half feet over the entire focal length.
For over 20 years, Mike’s passion for the environment and conservation has centered on his love of travel and wildlife photography.
I’ll see if I can add in some examples of how not to do it, to help with illustrating the technique. Silhouettes look great and add a special feel to the photo, and they also emphasize form and composition while reducing the distraction of detail.
This tells you that the image was indeed shot against the light, and you can see that I used the subject in the silhouette to hide the sun. Note that the red circle on the man’s hand is an optical disturbance caused by the sun shining through the lens.
Therefore the best silhouettes are usually shot near the sunrise, sunset or in winter months at higher latitudes. In these situations you simply have to shoot against the source of light, as seen in the example below.
However, in some cases it may set the exposure to the subject, especially if the subject is large. Check out my article on using iPhone’s camera app for more information about setting the right exposure. However, I also want to create a silhouette, which is only possible if the exposure is set to the bright sky. For the photo above I used Camera+, which is my favorite dedicated photo-shooting app besides the built in camera.
To answer that question, I'll begin at the most practical level (there will be plenty of time later in this article to expound upon how they can beautify your landscaping).
Notice how the plants in the photo are poking out through holes in what looks like black plastic? After all, who wants a garden thug that is going to creep into parts of your flower borders where it does not belong? Spring is finally here, and many photographers are gearing up to go out to their favorite spots and start clicking up a storm. The following lenses are some of my recommendations, derived from years of experience out in the field on photo shoots.
It’s very sharp and fast and can be used indoors when flash photography is prohibited. I am not a fan of this kind of setup because the lens is susceptible to dust getting inside the tube.
These should be steeper near the crest and smooth out towards the edge to show sharp peaks.
Keep your deeper shadows to the top of the ridgeline (where it’s steepest) and in valleys and crevasses. The ridge looks great, but what makes it great may be more clear if you see a nonworking version too. This picture is taken from the direction of the light and thus most of the windmill is properly exposed.
I often try to hide the sun behind my subject, because having it shine directly into your iPhone’s lens is usually a bad idea.
Usually you will get a blown-out white area where the sun was supposed to be, along with some optical disturbances around it. However, when your subject is really close to you in comparison to the rest of the scene, this may no longer be optimal.
These ground covers are vigorous growers that will help you suppress common lawn weeds and other unwanted plants. Well, let me explain what this material really is, how to install it, and why this covering works hand-in-hand with such a planting of creeping junipers.The material shown in the picture is landscape fabric, not black plastic.
In the picture, the creeping juniper is bordered by a nicely maintained lawn (from which it is separated by trench edging) and fastidiously clipped hedge plants (the dark green in the background).


Here, the structure happens to be a dry-laid stone wall; click the link to access my instructions for building such a wall. For ideas on building more formal landscape stairs, using masonry, consult the resource to which I've linked above the picture. Perched upon the summit of Cadillac Mountain, you feel as if you're hovering over the Atlantic Ocean, as the salt-laden sea breeze wafts up to your invigorated nostrils. These are my personal opinions and will not accommodate every situation or every photographer’s needs. The focal lengths and speed are ideal for indoor and outdoor shooting conditions, although the IS offers only a two stop advantage. I use my EOS-1D Mk IV camera with the lens and the AquaTech underwater housing, topped with a dome lens port for maximum angle of view. In an emergency, the 2.0X extender can work as well with the EOS-1D bodies, but the image quality is not great.
You can also skip the hatching and import the lineart into a digital editing program and shade your mountains there.
In some cases this may actually make the image more interesting, so feel free to experiment.
I would love to see Canon bring out a Series II version with the latest coatings and a four stop IS system. On land, this super wide angle lens captures stunning nature photos and stimulate creativity. The drawbacks are that extenders cannot be used on this lens, and it does not come with a tripod ring.
I relate something of my own experience of living on the side of a steep hill in the article linked to here.In the present introduction I will simply note that one of the major difficulties in maintaining such an area is mowing it. But in the absence of significant snowfall, their foliage will break up what would otherwise be a drab expanse of white, gray and brown during the winter months.
It's a good indication that this genus is well represented among the salt-tolerant plants. The new lens reduces the weight by 1.5 pounds and comes with improved optics but at a much higher price.
He shoots his mouth off without any regard to either the feelings of others in our now diverse society and for anyone who does not live in Remuera and drives a Maserati to work.
A Series II version of this lens with the latest coatings and a four stop IS system would be most welcomed.
If you already have the Series I lens, I am not recommending an upgrade unless money is no concern.
You'll learn how to plant these ground covers, what some of the best types are, and what assets they bring to your landscaping. When, as a younger man, I lived on the aforementioned hill, I used a Flymo hover mower to do my mowing. He is a harmful role model to younger New Zealanders and he lacks the ability to put himself in anyone's else's shoes.Have you had any response from Amy Adams?
Consider these three components as a team that works together for weed control, with the prime functions of the creeping junipers being soil erosion control and aesthetic enhancement.
Even out the surface with a steel rake and remove sharp objects that could puncture the weed barrier.Before moving to the next entry, take a closer look at this planting.
When one strip was cut in this fashion, I would haul the mower back up the slope using the rope, then repeat for the next strip. Apparently, the weed barrier was torn by sharp rocks or roots that the homeowner failed to remove prior to installation. In a case like this, if the weeds aren't removed pretty soon, the whole enterprise will be put at risk.
