Robert Bateman

I have truly enjoyed Robert Bateman's paintings as they have been the most vivid paintings of wildlife that I have ever seen in my life. Having seen this book in the stores, I wanted to get this book and have passed by it many times. Today when my mother dropped by our home. She left this book with me. Evidently someone had given it to her as a gift and she felt that I would appreciate it much more than she would so she gave it to me. I am truly grateful for her gift.

I am not an artist that deals in paint. I tend to lean towards photography as my medium. Wildlife appears to be my forte when it comes to photography. And Robert Bateman's natural style with the paintbrush is what I have been trying to emulate. However his talent is without compare and the best I can do is to develop my own unique photography with regards to wildlife.

Fake Chuck Westfall and Canon faux pas hilarity.

Fake Chuck Westfall. This guy is absolutely hilarious. He claims he is a Canon tech at Canon Corp and he just rags on Canon every chance he gets. As a Nikon guy, I'm in stitches every time I read his blog.

He rightfully rips Canon a new hole when he complains about the 7D. IMHO, the 7D is a noisy piece of shit that never should have seen the light of day. What camera gives off so much noise at 800 ISO that your pixels seem like multi-colored fractals. Well, Canon, that's what you get for jamming 18 MP onto an APS-C sensor. Evidently they're winning the MP race, but their quality control is taking a header down the crapper.

I feel sorry for Canon, but does that mean I'll buy the Canon 7D out of pity. No f*ng way!
