Canon 7 D and Sigma 10-20 mm at 11 mm ISO 500 and 1/2000 sec at F6.3 spot metered and manually exposed
I was experimenting here and broke just about every rule regarding the photography of birds.
1. always have the sun at your back so your subject is well lit. Early morning or late light is good.
OK I shot into the sun ,,,bad!
2. keep it natural, do not include anything man made also known as the hand of man
Yup…that rule has definetly been flushed here
3. Use as large a telephoto lens as possible to fill the frame and to keep a comfortable distance between you and your subject
I guess using the Sigma 10-20 mm lens at 11 mm breaks that rule as well
The rule I didn’t break ( at least I think I didn’t) is the rule that governs composition …the Rule of Thirds, the Golden Ratio or (in this case) the Fibonacci Ratio ( Fibonacci Spiral was used)..
