About This Work

‘Chestnut-sided Warbler’ by Mike Grandmaison Winnipeg, Manitoba. Canada My interest in bird watching goes back to my university years but I only recently begun to photograph ‘dickie birds’ as one of my university professors used to refer to them. Wildlife photography is an extremely challenging genre which requires above all knowing your subject. It also requires much patience although there is always room for a ‘happy accident’. Wildlife is more active during periods surrounding dawn and dusk so that ‘being there’ will always give you an opportunity to see or create an image rather than staying home in the comfort of your bed. There are also many technical challenges involved in photographing animals. However, because of the smaller sensors found in many digital cameras today, there is much less of a need for the expensive telephoto lenses that generally runs into five to ten thousand dollars or more for professional quality equipment. With a moderately long lens like a 300mm telephoto, when combined with a high quality teleconverter, can produce the equivalent of a 630mm telephoto when attached to a digital camera with a small sensor, all this for about have the cost or less than the more expensive lenses. Wildlife is always on the move and one must often react very quickly. Because the light conditions are often far from ideal, wildlife photographers must frequently use the highest shutter speed possible in order to ensure that, at the very minimum, the eye is sharp. While I have discussed mostly technical details, framing the subject in an interesting setting with good background control is a tremendous challenge in the few seconds you may have to release the shutter. All of this to say that wildlife photography is very engaging. When I look at beautiful wildlife photography, I know just how difficult it is to achieve and I ‘take my hat off’ to those creators. I captured this Chestnut-sided Warbler in my backyard as it momentarily perched on a branch of my flowering Nanking cherry bush. While the background in the original was fairly uniform, I like the added textured background of this particular version.

Looking back to my childhood, I have always had an affinity for the ‘natural world’. Coming from a land ravaged by mining, lumbering, and forest fires, I understood very early the need to preserve our natural heritage. While Canada has always bee... More
