Nature and Travel photography
We live along a nature trail in Summerside, PEI that includes not only an ocean/gulf coast (technically, a strait) but also forested areas as well as a protected marsh. So, I have a variety of land and sea birds to attempt to photograph right at my front door. Additionally, I am frequently distracted by butterflies, bees and dragonflies... anything with wings!
We also travel extensively throughout Europe, so in addition to whatever nature I can find on the road, some of my photography is attempts to capture interesting scenes during our trips. Much of it is documentation of things we want to remember, but I also try to take some photographs that might be interesting to others.
The best way to follow my current photo adventures is to follow me on Mastodon or Flickr.
I used to post photos regularly on Twitter. To just see my nature photos, you can use this handy advanced search direct link to find photos I have tweeted with the "camera" emoji (e.g. 📷🐦), which generally means an interesting photo I've taken.
My bird and nature photography hobby began with a Nikon P900 super-zoom camera. I then upgraded to the Sony RX10iv, and now use a Nikon D7500 and D500.
Android Birding Apps
Android Photography Apps
- Google Photos
- F-Stop Gallery - A powerhouse photo gallery app for viewing/organizing with tags, ratings etc.
- Piktures - Another beautiful gallery app, if you don’t want something like F-Stop.
- pixFolio (Google Photos alternative gallery, casting and slideshow app)
- FlickFolio (Flickr alternative gallery app)
- Snapseed - The photo editor I keep coming back to for tweaks, especially easy to use selective and brush edits (i.e. lightening up just a bird’s face)
- Polarr Photo Editor - One of the few RAW photo editors for Android, and good denoise tools. I’ll often put photos through this before making some adjustments in Snapseed.
- Photo Editor - Powerful, full-featured, no-nonsense editor for photo edits as well as adding text etc.
- Rename Photos and Videos
This space will be updated when I finally decide how I want to showcase my albums! Below are some album embedding experiments, so I can see which format(s) I like:
