Hey Shawn, that 2nd one's actually pretty good...with an 85 f1.4


Thanks Will!

Would you be able to tell me why that first shot with the bird flying across the water isn't that great? When i took it i thought it was awesome as I dont really see that perspective that much although I kind of hoped it was more of a head on shot which would have been even cooler. Id love to know why the shot really isn't all that great so I can refocus and go back to the drawing board in my way of composition on these types of shots.

Thanks Will!

All I can think of is 1/800th might have been a tad slow
(especially if there was some camera shakin' goin' on)
and this might be cropped a tad more than shot #2.
If you were in "release" the AF might not have fully
locked on either. Hard to tell since I wasn't there.
The 85's AF not the swiftest, try a 70-200 FTW

Ah so its not the composition so much but more in the technical details? I suppose the proximity I was at in relation to the bird had a hand in the DOF also in conjunction with the slow shutter speed pushing that outer wing to be OOF/blurred.

I will keep all of that in mind in the future, thanks a lot Will!

Son and family are coming back from Amman, Jordan, where Matt has been senior logco for the UNHCR as they battle to feed some 2 Million refugees in Jordan, Iraq, Turkey and Syria.

Pictured is Edward (Ted) aka "The Lump" or "The Bouncer in Waiting". At nine months I couldnt get my hand around his calf and there was not a bit of fat on him. Pure muscle and bone. For his second Birthday he was just over a metre tall and 22Kg. Thank god he is a really laid back kid that nothing fazes. We have had him here for a week now and everything has been quietly and totally disassembled. No rushing and tearing. He just quietly gets on with taking everything apart and then proudly shows you.

He hasnt mastered my camera yet but he is working on it

Jim Beam has sorta taken over Roppongi Hills here in Tokyo. I very much wanted to straighten the bottles, and couldn't really use even a tiny bit of fill flash, but those things weren't going to happen...
