great capture Paul, a couple of questions if i may -

if you were taking this now, almost 3 years on, would you use the same settings or would you err marginally toward a darker exposure to retain more of the detail in the white area?

is your manual setting down to experience / trial and error / or do you use a static subject to take measure measurements?

was you focus auto or set manually at a pre-determined point (if the former then a commendation regards your skill, if the latter then a commendation for your patience as the plane of focus at f5 on a cropped 300mm would have been minimal)


hopefully myself and others will benefit from your response, phil

The answer to all your questions Phil is.......
Im in the process of setting up a foliopic website (which should be online by next weekend) where I will be offering One 2 One Tuition on Small Songbirds In Flight covering all lighting conditions and all options of camera setup including the use of multiple flashes, I will also be offering tuition on Dragonflys in flight....another of my passions.

All the best

I have problems photographing birds when they dont move.I,m impressed by your capture of a bird in flight
28 Jan 2013 10:23PM
That's a wonderful capture. Interestingly for me I've just ordered a Siggie 120-300F2.8 EX DG OS. Your shot is very reassuring! Have you tried it with a 2xTC? Any good?
