2 from the zoo practicing w/ the 300 f/4

Discussion in 'Birds' started by catalyst, May 5, 2007.

  1. I was inside a local "rain forest" exhibit, and had to crank up the D70 to ISO 800 in order to shoot with a recently-returned AF-S 300 f/4 wide open handheld.

    The first I think is OK - composition could have been better and I'd appreciate an ID - and the second is marginal but I think / hope has a salvaging cuteness factor.

    A bird like yours was posted here a week or two back but I can't remember what the name was. :redface: A very fine image though!

    Nice images. Is there anything the 300 can't image in the hands of a competent photographer. I love the isolation on the bird and the baby sloth.

    Fantastic DOF composition of both images.
  5. I think the bird is a Victoria crowned pigeon - it's a really nice capture, too. I really agree that a zoo is very good place to practise your technique, plenty of subjects - but some of them very hard to shoot well.
