2022 – week 6

Last weekend I attempted some wildlife photography in a local park… and it’s really, really hard! People were feeding the ducks, which attracted a horde of gulls, so there were plenty of potential subjects that weren’t too far away. Despite that, I still ended up cropping my shots heavily. I could have zoomed in a bit further, but that just made it harder to get the fast moving birds in the frame.

It was a challenge getting the birds in focus, and a fast shutter speed was essential; not just to avoid camera shake, but also to freeze motion.

Some of the results are OK, but I definitely need more practice!
