The rut is the perfect time to get great bull elk poses. This bull was without a harem but staying close to a larger bull that has one. These satellite bulls are constantly watching for their opportunities to move in.
 
What is the best technique for composing an image of an entire animal? While this answer can quickly become complicated and is situationally dependent, a simple strategy that often works is to center the entire animal in the frame and open up to the side it is looking toward. In this example, the elk is looking almost straight at me, but with its head angled slightly toward the right of the frame, adding weight to that side, I positioned the elk slightly to the left of center to create an overall balance.
 
Picture yourself here! As recently shared, I have added a second week for the Rocky Mountain National Park workshop. Photographers at all skill levels are invited to join!

Newsday has reported that 60 employees – formerly of Canon USA's Melville, NY location and primarily in the camera division – have been laid off.
 
The site goes on to say:
Canon employed 1,569 people in Melville in 2017, according to the most recent state records. It must report its local employment annually to the state and to Suffolk County, both of which aided in the construction of Canon’s $500 million headquarters near Exit 49 of the Long Island Expressway.
 
The company moved from Lake Success to Melville in 2013 after a 25-year search for a new home. It has exceeded the employment promises made to the state and Suffolk so far. State records show Canon's employment cannot fall below 1,360 people or it would have to pay back some of the grant money and tax-break aid it has received.

From Think Tank Photo:
 
Santa Rosa, Calif. – Studio photographers know that lighting stands are heavy, cumbersome and hard to transport. In fact, transporting light stands is as much about protecting your car and your fingers as it is easily moving them. The Stand Manager 52 rolling case is an ideal solution for storing and transporting stands of any kind.
 
With a truly innovative design – the Stand Manager 52 has both internal tiedowns and exterior compression straps to secure your stands. With four padded handles, wheels and rear skid rails, the case is also easy to load while transporting to and from your location shoot. The Stand Manager 52 is one of the most durable and protective cases you can own.
 
“C-stands are heavy, oddly shaped and difficult to transport,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s President and lead designer.
 
“With the Stand Manager 52, you can fit up to 4 Cstands in a highly durable rolling case, making them much easier to transport.”
 
KEY FEATURES
 
  • Crush resistant ABS twin-wall provides end-to-end reinforcement
  • Oversized, shock-absorbing wheels roll smoothly and hold up under the toughest conditions
  • 52” of internal height for those extra-large modifiers or gel rolls
  • Multiple tie-down straps secure your stands on the inside of the bag
  • Expands and contracts to fit your gear
  • Four exterior handles for easier lifting and loading
  • Built tough with highest quality materials (#10 YKK RC Fuse zippers, 1680D ballistic nylon and ABS Twinwall reinforcement) and proven high-quality construction
  • Large interior pocket for umbrellas or small modifiers
  • Roomy interior for a few sandbags
  • Rear skid rails and tall wheel housings allow you to load and unload from a vehicle with ease
  • Reinforced bottom panel holds up to heavy stand abuse
  • Clam shell opening gives unencumbered access to gear
  • Lockable zippers (lock not included)
  • User replaceable wheels and hardware
MATERIALS
