8 week online workshop
lesson 1
topic 3 focus

I took my camera outside to see if I could get shots of birds, bees, dragonflies. Dragonflies were hard and remained out of focus, but I did manage to get birds and a bee. all pics were in aperture mode and f5 iso 100, pic 1 1/1000 pic 2 1/16000, pic 3 1/200 and pic 4 1/1250…. I think i preferred continuous focus for moving things

  1. Dragonflies are certainly a challenge. I find bees, dragonflies and butterflies are all quite difficult to capture. You need to shoot lots and be very patient. And yes, being in continuous certainly is easier with fast moving objects. Well done with the bird shots. Nice job!

  2. You have done well to get the birds in the image at all – I always struggle when I try to capture a moving bird! The bee image is lovely – he looks like a very busy fellow 🙂
