Passer domesticus

By Loupix  


Not much of a setup really I find candid shots very hard to do as birds are never where you want them to be. So I chose a place that I knew birds would be. (town centre feeding spot) placed a couple of perches in a bush near by, and waited. they feed on a concrete hut, who knows what for, but the bush beside it is a perfect perch.

Photo Info:-

Exposure...............1/250s @f/5.6
Exposure mode..........Auto
Exposure Program.......Normal
ISO speed..............100
Focal Length...........400mm
Metering mode..........Pattern
White balance..........Auto

I enjoyed this shoot, really getting the hang of things now, the light was good, and I chose a weekday do do this.
