Smile My Back Yard

I went hunting with my camera and this is what I shot tonight.
Camera is Canon T1I
1/500 sec
F/5.6
ISO 1600
250mm
Of course they started as 85 meg raws and now they are...well, small. I did just a little adjusting in Lightroom.
Funny how they know when it's in between hunting season.

Re: My Back Yard

I'm so glad that I noticed your thread! I loved the image of your 8-9-10 pt. buck also, but these really add to your collection. I'm glad they thought it safe to visit, and especially glad that you had your camera and it handles 1600 ISO very well.

Re: My Back Yard

Thank you for your kind words CJ. I am impressed with the T1I. It's new to me and I still have a lot to learn about both the camera and photography. I feel like on these I should have been around F/11 and maybe dropped to 1/250 sec. I was just so excited to get the shots and they were moving through so I had limited time.

Hey, you GOT the shots! Yesterday I was out in my backyard working on catching the cats "in motion" and had a hummingbird pop up on the other side of my back railing - he was only 24-36in. away, hovering...while my camera was in my hands... pointed down at the ground. I was so surprised, and was enjoying watching him that I didn't even think about bringing my camera up to my eye until after he zipped away. Then I hung around hoping he might get close again, but he just twittered about how dumb I was...

You got your shots, in focus, without the trees blocking our view of their heads. Getting a new camera body is such fun! Of course, there's that learning curve again - how do we change this setting, etc? You'll get used to the differences and get it set up how you like it - and maybe the deer herd will come back again.

Whoo hoo! Just read about the high ISO capabilities of your new camera - 6400 and higher! The DPreview test shot at 6400 are fine, with the 12800 showing some real loss of detail. You may have some fun in the dark woods with that baby!
