Breaking The Rules

Shooting wildlife with a 35mm prime… Who the hell does he think he is?…

Kinda works though and it’s sooo much sharper than my 18-105mm kit lens.

These guys were very much into each other and so much more elegant than the duck thugs rampaging up the other end of the lake! I must remember to take my 300mm next time, nowhere near as fast as the prime lens but, with the right settings, I might be able to catch them displaying and dancing.

Shot on Fonthill Lake, near Tisbury, Wiltshire. I’ll be back there tomorrow.

I’ve really tried to get texture into my shots today and I think I’ve managed it. with the grumpy swan and with the Wylye Troll…dsc_3388-editAperture wide open at full tilt (105mm) and it was the middle of the day (lunch break) so the light wasn’t brilliant so ISO400. I am starting to notice the noise in some of my edits, you can reduce it in Lightroom but it’s always there. And if the troll is making your head hurt it’s a fallen tree half submerged in the deep and calm River Wylye and then rotated 90 degrees…

Messing with your mind Peeps! ;o) xxx
