More Practice with the TC17e-II

As I’ve mentioned before, I usually visit the Bolsa Chica preserve in the middle of the day, when the light is far from optimal. I enjoy the walk and take pictures for the sheer joy of practicing. Last Sunday, I got some more practice with the TC17e-II teleconverter on my 70-200 f/2.8 lens. One expects some degradation of optical quality when using a teleconverter, but in midday light the only technical problems I see are the result of my technique.  I’m ashamed to admit that I still haven’t tried shooting this combination on a tripod or even a monopod, but that is my goal for this coming weekend.

Good color, acceptable sharpness, and nice bokeh. Now I just need to get out in better light!

    for me it is often just the process that i love … being out within nature and that “being there” becomes a zen moment when i focus on an animal or bird and observe its moments and habitat … always a surprise when i capture the essence of my subject
