Candids at the lake...

Discussion in 'People' started by Uncle Frank, Feb 16, 2005.

  1. I've been using the 80-200 for birding, but it's a little short for the job, even with the Kenko 1.4x teleconverter.
    I left it off today, since I was shooting shorebirds, but they stayed out of range, and I only managed to catch one
    shot of a bird in flight.

    I was about to leave when I spotted some mammals... a brother and sister enjoying nature. The 80-200
    allowed me to take some candids from a respectable distance without disturbing them.

    As a sidenote, there was a little kid intently watching the interplay between the two siblings. He was with
    his grandpa, and clearly envied their companionship. I think he felt a little sad that his parents hadn't given
    him a little brother or sister to play with.

  2. Love this series of shots Frank. Sooo fun to see the interplay between not only the siblings but the boy standing off to the side. Well done, with excellent color saturation.
  3. Thanks, Gordon! I applied a "glamorizing" effect to this series of pictures to give them a romantic feel.
    It's a lot different than normal Nikon colors. Here's a shot without the effect, for comparison purposes.
    Which treatment do you like better?

  4. I have always been a big fan of vivid colors and used to shoot Vervia in my film days. These are fun images and I like the "glamourizing effect.
