What was ? (part two)

(this is for all from professionals to happy snappers)

What was

the last thing that you learnt ?

(apart from wanting the latest camera/kit/software )

I heard a tip on tv the other night ( Chris Packham on spring watch )

when taking a photo of wildlife or animals they usualy are looking away from you at the last minute use either a dog whistle or a clicker (the sort they use for animal training) and hopefully they will glance your way ( it would probably work on kids as well )

Oh and the fact that i still have lots and lots to learn

Palms, after that last lesson I don't think we can go any further
I usually wave my hat. That's why they look at me like I am crazy. Very perceptive aren't they.

Re: What was ? (part two)

This is sort of a half learnt
for a while i have wanted to do a silhouette shot at dusk but had got nowhere and had lost heart a bit
but last night i thought i would give it another try, so looked on the web for any info and i couldnt really find any only this page ( and those are the sort of images i want to be able to do )
Any way the outcome was i found that i had a setting for sunset ( that is why i say half learnt ) and used that along with the tip about focusing on the sky
and i sort of got a result, well something i can build upon anyway, so when the weather picks up again i will get the tripod out and try some more ( and then go and find something better to shoot than that outside my backdoor )

Re: What was ? (part two)

Yes Palms, Tripod is the key. Trees in such blow in the wind so they may get a little motion blur which is sometimes nice. You see I shoot a lot of night and motion stuff. There is something sweet and appealing about tack sharp object with things moving and blurring through, especially moving water or sweeping clouds. When on a tripod, always stop as far down as possible. This will give you a long shutter speed for your blurs and will also give you your sharp sky as well as your foreground objects. I always do quite a few exposures of the same setup so image as image elements change and you may like one shot better than the other.

Re: What was ? (part two)

Nothing much to add really, a lot's been covered although one of my biggest problems is forgetting to reset the cam after i last used it so white balance may be set to flash even though i'm outdoors, exposure compensation set too high or lens switched to manual lol.. u know what i mean,
