“I use a Sony A55 DSLR camera. My favorite lens is a 16 to 300 Tamron that I use in the courtyard. I have a Minolta 500 fixed lens for birding. I use Lightroom for photo storage and basic post processing. I’m experimenting more with creative ways to enhance images using the camera rather than post-processing (such as rotating the zoom in the photo with leaves). I also enjoy experimenting with techniques and software that give photos an impressionistic look and feel.
“Since retiring as a social worker, I intend to spend more time photographing. We built a website and I am writing a nature/photography blog on the site. See www.backyardadventurephotos.com. Discovering and photographing nature’s beauty brings me great joy.”
Your pictures are stunning. Observing Birds caring for their young has always moved me. Your close up shots of all these beautiful creatures along with the creative photo of fall leaves are very special. Thank you for sharing.
These pictures make you hold your breath as if taking the pictures – what beauty!
Breathtaking — literally and figuratively. What patience these photos must have taken.
Robin, these are all so very beautiful. I confess to partiality to the mating skippers and the birds feeding their babies. The cardinal father seems to be keeping a watchful eye on you. Thank you for loving and sharing this precious and badly needed biodiversity.
Photography is a true art form. LOVE is all here is. From one backyard photographer to another, it’s LOVE fuses the lens to the heart!
Robin’s photography truly captures, The Music.
Wow, your photography is captivating! Birds and Butterflies my two favorite things in nature. Absolutely beautiful.
