On the hunt

On the hunt by Sudipto Sarkar on Visioplanet

Turns out wildlife photography is pretty much a pain in the ass (not even considering the endless waiting and patience part). Especially when using a manual focus lens. The deers and boars were in the shadows, and the shadows are so dark, I had to go all the way to 3200 ISO to get the right capture, and then there’s the birds, who were out in the open. And the sunny parts were so bright that the ISO needed to get back down to 100 or 200.

In all that switching, I forgot to switch back down to 100 and took this at 3200… Luckily my sensor has a good dynamic range. I had to bring it down to -2 EV during post processing to get the details on the heron.

Talking of wildlife photography and manual focus, I really need to get that Tamron…
