Shooting with Harry B...

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Backdoctor, Sep 10, 2005.

  1. I had the great opportunity to visit, spend time with, and go shooting with the man, the legend... Harry B.

    Harry and Linda are great folks, took great care of us, and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner the night we arrived. The only complaint I have is that Harry didnt do something about that storm that was stationary off his coast. :rolleyes:

    The skies were terrible, light was terrible, but with good company and a hearty outlook we had a great time. We shot mostly from 640-1000iso. You have to see Harry handhold that monster of a 500. I was in awe.

    I shot a lot, but due to low shutter speeds, and backlit grey to white skies I am unimpressed with my shots... :frown:

    Nevertheless, here are some...

    Always a raptor on the raptor tree. I had to use some NI, check the exif below it. If I raised the ev any more, I blow the skies:

    a loggerhead shrike shot at 800 iso:
    original.

    an eagle shot at 800 iso, I had to push ev in pp'ing and then use NI for noise due to that. Just terrible lighting that day, but any eagle viewing is a good one:
    original.

    I'll have to go back, I hope Harry can do something about the weather next time.... :wink:

    Harris,

    I think that you did very well, especially considering the conditions. You have some very good shots here. :smile:

    Hey Harris,

    I tell you the weather has been beautiful down here ever since you left. :biggrin:

    You managed some keepers. I really liked the shrike shot. Yours came out much better than mine.

    It was great having you guys over and we have to do it again with some better weather.
