Great shots!!!.. Congrats..
The detail in these shots is amazing. On the shots with the birds flying, were you tracking them with the lens and shooting photos or were you waiting for them to fly into the frame?
I always tracking the bird in flight. To get the exposure correctly, just setup your shot with the sun behind you or on the side. Also, go to the menu set your focus locking to short, and keep tapping the shutter button to maintain the bird in focus. Once, the bird lineup with the sunlight, take 5 shots in burst mode.
Does tapping the shutter button work better than setting the camera to continuous focus?
I always switch to C. when I shooting birds and sports. The reason I'm tapping the shutter button to let my camera to lock on a new focus distance.
A pleasure to look at! Skillfully done 'Q'!
Spectacular group of pictures! I especially like the top photo.Regarding tracking birds in flight, I echo Ron's question... I would have thought that one would use continuous auto focus also. What is the advantage to focusing as you do?
Beautiful captures and details.
