Ok, so I am just a wee bit curious. I was down at the river and a friend decided to come visit. However, he was about 300-400 feet away, and I don't feel that the bird is quiiiiite in focus. I could just be analyzing it too far. idk. lol. I was shooting with a Rebel xti and the canon 75-300. While standing in the river with no tripod. Does anyone care to share their secrets, other than changing your aperture, that will help with focusing on the bird? It was overcast and late in the day, so I didn't have much wiggle room. Any comments are appreciated! Thanks! 1. 2.
