p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Mother and baby - A favorite image from Kenya


I spent a lot of time lying in the grass watching this protective mother and baby. At one point, the baby twisted around to get a look at this curious human lying in the grass. I still smile when looking at this image.

D5, 300 PF, f4.5, 1/2500, ISO 8000 (and yes, I should have lowered my shutter speed a LOT! !) The monkeys were often racing around, and I wanted to be ready for movement. However, in this quiet moment, I totally forgot to lower my shutter speed. Lesson learned.........

Hi Karen...

Beautiful photography of a wonderful mother and child..."The eyes are the windows to the soul."

Thanks

Nice unconventional pose. At my end it doesn`t look like ISO 8000 hurt this image at all.

The shutter speed because of the high ISO doesn't matter Karen, this is super!

Thank you so much! The more I look as this image, the more the eyes of both the mother and baby draw me in! I think I'm going to have to print this one.

The extremely shallow DOF helped a lot. And DxO does wonders for NR.

I was shooting manual with auto ISO and my shutter speed drove the ISO. Thankfully I was shooting a very narrow DOF.....!
