Happy Easter All
The eagle is such a magnificent creature. Spectacular shots! Well done!
Thank you very much Haze
I'm glad you looked in and Happy Easter to you and Yours
Great shots Gary. I need to find out where your secret spots are.:biggrin:
Wonderful captures, Gary.
Thanks Chris Happy Easter
Then it wouldn't be a secret would it.
Thank You Frank
I was trying to get Wade his passing shot with the low light under the wing but got these instead. I'll get that shot one day!!!!
Wow nice Easter shots:>)))))
Hope things Went well for your Easter
I have two questions for you:
1. What f/stop are you using?
2. What exposure compensation? (assuming you are shooting in AV mode and applying compensation)
Your images of these birds are very enjoyable and I hope you keep posting them.
The EXIF are attached to the pictures
These 3 were taken at:
At 1/1000 to 1/1250
I've a little saying, "Focus on the eye and f8 for the tail"
I keep a high Shutter speed in case of a flying shot
I've taken shots at ISO 200 and don't really see much improvement
I suspected minus 1/3 was the comp. When you feel like playing around one day back off to minus 2/3 stop in this situation and see where it puts you on the whites. On every Canon body I have owned minus 1/3 was considered the equivalent of zero so minus 2/3 is really minus 1/3. This is only true for sunny conditions though. Give it a shot and let me know what you find out. I know there are differences in individual bodies so I'm curious what yours does.
Very nice series, good job. Can never get enough eagle postings.
I've shot at -1.0 on Bright days with good results. I've started using histogram to set exposure. I try on my 20D to keep whites at about 3/4 scale I can shoot at 1/2 scale if I'm closer but they get noisy if even a small crop.
Wow, Gary I can't get enough of your eagles! Beautiful!
I'm very glad you are enjoying the postings
I really appreciate you and your comments.
Well, it would be OUR secret. :wink:
What focal length do you usually use for these?
Sorry Chris, besides this is not on public useage land anyway.
Take care and good shooting
