Camera House : Better Pictures 10
that you can place in some extreme locations and situations to get some really interesting shots. Something like Canon’s new waterproof, shockproof D20, or a GoPro Hero2 wearable/ mountable camera. They just open up so many new photographic opportunities when you don’t have to worry about the camera.” Or, if you’re hoping to learn more about the art of shooting wildlife, you could always head out with Chris on one of his photo safaris. “ What better way to learn and improve your photography than going on a trip to an amazing photographic destination, with a small, friendly group of people, all with the same passion and enthusiasm for photography?” says Chris. “Not only does everyone share camera gear, and feed off each other’s creativity, but also having a professional photographer right there on hand to help you with your settings, suggest better angles, and take you to all the best places and the best time of day.” So what’s Chris’ idea of a great image? “It varies, and that’s why judging can seem so subjective,” he says. “I think it’s a combination of good technique like abiding by basic composition rules, having clean non-distracting backgrounds, correct depth of field, good use of lighting, and also capturing some special moment that adds meaning to the image. Great photos have both, and they just jump out at me when I see them.” To see more of Chris’ work please visit Chrisbray.net ■ • Canon EoS 1D Mark IV • Canon EoS 7D • Canon EF 16-35MM F/2.8 LII USM • Canon EF 24-105MM F/4 L IS USM • Canon EF 15MM F/2.8 FIShEyE • Canon EF 100-400MM F/4.5 -5 .6 L IS USM • Canon EF 100MM MaCro F/2.8 L IS USM • Canon EF 50MM F/1.2 L USM • Canon EF 2x II ExtEnDEr • GIottoS aIr bLowEr • ManFrotto trIpoD • rInG FLaSh • hot-ShoE ExtEnSIon CabLE InsIde chrIs’ bag Feature OUTDOORS 18 016_Bpics10_Chris.v2_final.indd 18 3/09/12 4:02 PM
