It's like the seagull is ready for his close up.
BEST T-SHIRT EVER!!!!!
Which FPS setting did you use to capture the photo of the goose?
It is definitely cool seeing how we each interpreted the same scene. Unfortunately I wasn't prepared when the geese took off. We should do it again some time!
Eddie, the metadata from AM's shot shows he had his camera set at a shutter speed of 1/5000.
Thanks! I'm way behind when it comes to learning the right shutter speeds and other settings for cameras.
It may simply be a case where I've deliberately gone out to shoot birds in flight many times before so that was more readily on my mind when we saw the flock (gaggle?) sitting there on the walkway.
And yes, we'll definitely set up another shoot. I was in Central Park and up on East 83rd-86th today.
Yeah, when it comes to shooting action, especially birds, you need a shutter speed of at least 1/1000. In this case, I just spun the wheel as quickly as I could to jack up the shutter speed as the birds were taking off - I actually spun it too far, which is why it's so far in excess of 1/2000 (usually unnecessary) and there's a subtle loss of image quality (increased grain) as a result.
I was shooting in aperture priority so by the time I switched over to shutter priority and adjusted the shutter speed they were already over the fence.
I really like it, I too love the second floor porch off the master bedroom. The only change I would have made is to swap the location of the dinning room and kitchen. It would opened the kitchen a little more to the living room. However I really can complain, a finely designed home. Have you guys settled on outside colors yet? Would love to see pictures of the place as it progresses. Good luck Squiggy, there is nothing like owning a brand new home.
I went for an early morning swim with my daughter on Saturday. She had lots of fun.
^Nothing is as joyful as kids playing in water.
Indeed. That's such a wonderful, lovely, infectious smile!
^Oh good! -it wasn't just me!
I thought I'd be the only one.
You want to let us in on the secret?
^It's not as if it's a conspiracy, you know...
Indeed. You have your cop of To Kill A Mocking Bird, right?
They're quoting from the movie Conspiracy Theory, with Mel Gibson. Which, if memory serves, used the Ravenswood Generating Station as an important plot point in its story.
^ Great set! That's a beautiful landscape, too. But this:
Is my fave. Love the colors, composition, and DoF. Really lovely to look at!
