May 19, 2012 represented the first day of my 100th trip to Yellowstone National Park, and I brought with a friend who had never been to Yellowstone.
Photographer Dave M. Shumway and friend Becca Severson pose for a picture by the North Entrance sign to Yellowstone National Park. Dave was on his one hundredth trip to Yellowstone and Becca was on her first. Captured with a Canon 5D III and 24-105L IS in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of + 1 at ISO400, f/7.1, and 1/320th of a second. The camera was resting on a beanbag and was triggered with a ten second timer.
And because I am a wildlife photographer here are a few other shots from the trip, to make up for the boring people shot.
A grizzly bear scans its surrounding on a cloudy evening in Yellowstone National Park. Captured with a Canon 5D III and 500/4.0L IS + 1.4TC III in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of + 2/3 at ISO1600, f/7.1, and 1/160th of a second. The camera was mounted on a Gitzo 3540XLS and Induro GHB2 gimbal head with a custom long lens support.
A bison cow cleans off her newborn calf as it attempts to stand for the first time in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone National Park. Captured with a Canon 5D III and 70-200/2.8L IS II + 2.0TC III in aperture priority mode with an exposure bias of + 2/3 at ISO400, f/7.1, and 1/640th of a second. The camera was handheld.
