What a glorious, but frustrating, weekend! The weather was fantastic so I decided to practice some more with shooting the little birds ‘in flight’ in my garden. Got some killer shots, if only they were 100% sharp! Grr. Set up everything I could think of to get more light to allow for higher shutter speeds and more depth, but even 1/2500sec and f10 wasn’t enough to freeze the little birdies in mid air. Need to find another solution.. Different lens, remote control and even flash or something, but as I don’t want to disturb the birds, it can’t be too close either. And if possible I would like to keep the creamy bokeh.. Wrote some emails to photographers I highly admire, hoping they can point me in the right direction.
Well, practice makes perfect so I guess I’ll keep trying.
