San Diego Bird Photography Workshop

I look forward to visit San Diego once again. I have a few openings available if you wish to join me. Let's photograph the West Coast! Hope you can join me!


I promised on Facebook that I would share my Canon 5D MKIII AF settings as I feel these settings has been working pretty well for me. Above you will find that information.

Let me know if you have any questions or if you need help.

Thanks!

Manual Mode is The Answer! © Maxis Gamez, All Rights Reserved

I can't say it enough. Learn Manual Mode!

Recently, I had an opportunity to photograph Hooded Mergansers in my home town. Females are tricky to photograph as they are dark on top and a few f/stops brighter under the wings. With that said, I can easily photograph them by simply changing my shutter speed using Manual Mode.

Give it a try!

Thanks!


Once again I will be leading several field workshops at my favorite event of the year. The Florida's Birding & Photofest in St. Augustine, FL on April 30 - May 4, 2014.

Some of my programs includes:

and several others. This event you don't want to miss! Mark your calendars and I hope to see you there!

Thanks!

I was very fortunate to photograph these beautiful ducks in my home town at a very close range. A great way to end 2013!

Happy New Year to everyone!
