High key Morning Launch

Postby Didereaux » Sat May 20, 2017 8:14 pm

Done the other morning with the previously posted rookery shots. Practicing trying to minimize movement except wings. This wasn't too bad I though. Have a few more, and if one is better I will post it. Minimal post. Some noise. maximized dynamic range, slight sharpening.

Canon 7Dmkii 1/80 F6.3 ISO640 handheld @ ~700mm

Considering your camera settings you did well, especially hand held.
Although many lenses have vibration senses, some up to 2 stops.
The standard shutter speed is 1X focal length. So in your case at 700mm it is 700/sec.
I can do that with my right hand..It is the one that holds the beer...left hand no good :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

pure dammed luck on my party shake coincided with his jerks. ;) I normally never shoot that lens(Sigma 150-600C) under 1/1000 even though it does have an excellent IS. I used those settings playing around with 'artistic' blur shots...I should never be allowed to watch Art Morris and Denise Ippolito their goofiness is catching. ;)

With everything else sharp where it should be, I thought you had added a painter effect to the wings and was impressed. Now I'm not sure what I'm more impressed with that you captured the moment or that you shot that cannon handheld!

Thank you for sharing this with us. I'm beginning to think the egrets are posing for you! S-

:rofl: :rofl: They did put on quite a show that morning, anyone with a Kodak Brownie could have come away with some great shots. As I said this shot was pure-double-D luck...my shake, and his jitters coincided for a split second and my finger just happened to be pushing down when it happened. Wish I could take more credit, but dems da facts! A sfor handholding cannons really this isn't to bad to operate with, certainly much easier than say a 500mm f4 prime or other such monster. An acquaintance of mine shoots one regularly and is gaining quite a name for himself nationally for his series on Ospreys and a continuing story of a family of Red-tailed HAwks. Here is a link to his FlickR albums Kristopher Rowe albums
