I was able to get some birds in the wild while on vacation out east.
Sorry to hear you're struggling with that. You mention that you think your lens may be the problem and it just may be that but I'm a little confused and not so sure that's it because I've seen your pictures of other birds (assuming you used the same lens) that were sharp as a tack and these appear to be 'off' in comparison. I can't pinpoint exactly what it is either. Are they out of focus, camera shake or what? The pictures here appear on the grainy side, unlike previous pics. I can't pinpoint the cause of it, I'm no pro. Are you using a monopod or a tripod? Is your ISO too high? Would that cause the graininess? I'm thinking that being all zoomed in grain might be more apparent.
I get all that but it's so much nicer when you simply 'get lucky' so you don't have to be in the hot sun for 2 1/2 hours waiting for one pic. That just ain't happening, not with me! I'd rather just try my luck another day. lol!
Nice pics! You captured the bird that eludes me, the green heron, nice job!
Thanks!! All of those were taken while at an eagle watch waiting for the bald eagles to show up. Once I wade through all the other pictures I hope to post some of those as well. It was a lot more fun taking the pictures in the wild vs at the feeder in my yard.
i think it is my settings more then anything else so i will have to spend some time going through them all.. i need to make some adjustments.. my fingers probably hit the wrong dial.......lol so after i mow.. i will take some more photos..
I changed the settings and big improvement.. i am on my way to better shots i hope..now if i can get him in a little better lighting.. it will be better..
Thanks!! It is amazing at how much practice can help, as well as better light.
thank you Mikhal. I think i really had some success now... these are i think my best so far.. I practiced over and over.................
What settings did you change, these look a lot sharper and a lot less grainy.
