p.1 #1 · Ducks from the greenbelt


So, I just got my hands on a canon 600mm, and was very excited to test drive it this morning. Spent some time in the Wheatridge Greenbelt in CO. Had a great time, and overall pleased with the photos, but I bet there's a lot I could do to improve my technique to squeeze more out of this lens. Please provide any C&C regarding Max acceptable ISO, ISO v Shutter Speed, APSC-body quality v FF w/extender, other tips to maximize IQ and opportunities. Thanks!!

Several suggestions; #1) Try to get lower.
#2)Focus on the eye.
#3) Use a faster S.S. or a tripod.
#4) Keep shooting.

These are nice Galen. I suggest googling "long lens technique" ~ Ron

Work on your compositions, the technical issues will be solved with practice. Get lower and give your subjects more space in the direction there moving. Nice exposures and good color.

Good images. Looks like you have lots of local opportunity to put into practice what is suggested above.
