    … would love to know your ap and shutter speed ’cause this looks like natural light. AND .. how the heck did you get horsey to hold still for what I assume was a long shutter speed … or are you using one of those magnificent low light lenses???? sigh … so much to learn .. but so much to admire!!!!

    I have just put the info on for you.I love working with this type of shot, because working withISO values right up to 6500 and a very fast AF can give some amazing results in the animal world as you can capture most movements regardless of lighting conditions.Also a 2.8 lens is a must when you want to work in poor natural lighting conditions!In this case the horse wasn’t standing still, but scratching it’s neck/head on the woodwork!
    hope that this might give you ideas of christmas wishes!!

    Alan, right after I saw this shot I started combing Amazon for low light lenses that might be in my price range. Clearing throat, rolling eyes .. ahhh … well. Not quite yet, lol!! But it occurred to me that my little 60mm Nikon Macro is a 2.8. So I got it out and roamed the house taking very low light shots and … KAZAMM!!! It worked!!!! Not sure how it will work in conditions like yours, but I’m going to start experimenting!!! Thank you, thank you so much for the inspiration!!!!!! Also, thank heavens the D300 is good with high iso … so that’s another plus. I’m STOKED, lol!!!!!!!!! Thanks again!!!!

  • what you want is the 70-200mm nikon 2.8, I am quite sure that they are very reasonable on the used market, you will NEVER regret it!!
