Bird Photography at Merritt Island with a Canon 2x Extender

For over 2 years I’ve been packing around a Canon 2x extender. I bought it in New York City before heading to Africa in hopes that it would give me more distance on my wildlife images using a 200mm f/2.8 prime lens I had back then. But, when I used it nothing came out really sharp. I attributed the un-sharp images to the fact that I was using my 60D crop sensor body. I figured I just wasn’t able to get clean enough images...

If you’re fairly new to photography, you’re likely curious about how the pros do certain things; the “tricks” of the trade, if you will.

Video: Kruger National Park

About 10 minutes after posting this video from Kruger National Park to YouTube I realized that I actually had way more wildlife footage from my 5 days in the park.  On somewhat slow internet, I was completely unwilling to re-do this video to get them in, so I’m sorry if there isn’t as much wildlife footage as I’d like in this video of the safari through Kruger.  I also have to say, filming wildlife as a photographer...
