Hard to frame because you never know when or where it's going to happen. I need to back off a bit though...

Not sure if serious or not, but it's a porcupine. I do have a few beaver shots, but never really focused on them enough to try for a shot worth posting. Someday I will, when I find a suitable subject. Usually I'm looking for birds of prey or large mammals. Regarding exif, gear talk turns these threads into shitfests, so I stopped talking gear. Not that it matters; I have a few bodies and lenses and it would look the same no matter what I used just by using my feet and changing some settings.

Thanks... I don't usually bother with them (they kind of bore me) but liked his mission of turning the world brown.

>>3484962
Great framing and blur on the water.
>>
>>3484962

Oh yeah, nice... was gonna ask, Wood Duck, right? They are uncommon here but I've seen them before. Ducks in general are on the list of things to focus on sometime. Pretty far down the list, but on it.

The eagle looks good but to be fair the pebbles look photoshopped in.

>>3486292

One of the reasons I like it; any time a shot comes out artificial looking, I find it more interesting because it gets your attention. Actually mentioned it the first time I posted it:

https://archive.nyafuu.org/p/thread/3400057/#q3413704

Not a shoop, I assure you. It's just the way the rocks fall closer to the focal plane at the center, with the rock at the very center in focus. The hardness there throws off the whole shot and makes it look like a bad composite.

Try to not photograph bird butts. Either take more photos as it moves around, or if it's sitting still you can walk around the tree yourself to a better angle.

>>3486197

Try to get lower down and photograph from the birds' eye level instead of looking down at them.

How do you take pictures like there, where the animal is perfectly clear? I tried going out today and getting a picture of a squirrel at close range and the slightest millimeter movement of him blurred like crazy.

My camera can go up to 1/8000 shutter speed but at that point it's entirely black since no light gets in. Do I need some $7000 for this or what?
>>
>>3487232

I never go above 1/3200, and my main body only goes to 1/4000. For birds in flight, just practice tracking smoothly and lead your subject a tiny bit.

Are you sure it's motion blur? It could just be because the subject moved toward or away from you after the camera focused, moving out of the focal plane. Are you sure you're not too close, too? Give the lens some breathing room instead of hovering at the edge of its ability. They all have sweet spots... I've dealt with this issue a lot. Also, are you using AF-C? Make sure you are. Try setting your camera to focus priority rather than shutter release too, although beware you can depress the shutter release and your camera may just decide not to shoot. Also try stopping down a bit.

I know it can be hard especially in poor lighting, but don't be afraid to focus manually either. With a bit of practice it is extremely easy for subjects that aren't running or flying. Practice that, I think you will like the results.

>have to spend thousands of dollars
Nope, I still use kit lenses all the time. If the light is good and you're using the appropriate settings for the occasion, any lens is going to be good if used within its comfort zone.
>>
>>3487232

Wanna post examples though? I've taken many a blurry shot for a variety of reasons so may be able to narrow it down.

hello /p/ I love animals and taking photos of wildlife

are you all use very fancy lenses for these? or just a 70-200?
>>
>>3487309
Get a mft. Smaller sensor = more reach. Lens doesnt matter much
>>
>>3487312

woah really?

is this a troll

couldn't I just get a big sensor and crop for the same effect? or no?
>>
>>3487309
I've posted like 9 or so photos in this thread and used the tamron 150-600 G2. Definitely a specialty lens but not an exotic prime.

>>3487312
>>3487318
You can crop the image if the pixel density is the same. The D850 cropped down is the same as the D500 since it's a 46 megapixel camera going down to a 20 megapixel camera. But the D5 for example can't be cropped in to match the D500 as there aren't as many pixels once you crop. In general a crop body has more effective reach since it has a smaller sensor. That's how something like the P900 has a 2000mm equivalent--it has a tiny tiny sensor so the crop factor of 5.6 multiplies out the 357mm lens to 2000mm. That said, smaller sensors typically have worse image quality.

Yup it seems to outperform other similar lenses from what I can tell from online reviews, plus it is weather sealed. I have no point of comparison though as it's the only one I've ever used. Main issue however is f6.3 doesn't let much light in for warblers in dense forest so I have to crank ISO kinda high. I'm debating flash or a monopod to help with that.

70-200 suffice for this or do you need a bazooka like 400mm?
>>
>>3487731

That's lame as fuck, and I feel dirty even talking about it. I also don't the have time or patience for that shit... hold camera + walk is all I'm interested in. Being restless is why I gave up macro, where you can shoot 50 subjects within 5 square feet outdoors. Moving felt pointless, and I hated it. I don't even use a tripod more than twice a year, if that.

You're from Ontario, you should know Snowys only come all the way down here sporadically every few years, usually when it gets really cold up North. They have erratic migrations and wander rather than establish a territory. I've never seen one in the same place twice, and find it best just to cover a lot of ground and when you do find one, and try to figure out which general direction it is heading by watching for a long time. They move a lot... you'll know which direction to check the next time you're out. I've followed them for a few days before, but one day they disappear.

The main thing is speed if you ask me... plenty of times, 70-200 f/2.8 had been absolutely perfect, and there have been plenty of times I kicked myself for not bringing it.

I went out again today and again all my shots are blurry as fuck. I think the autofocus just sucks or I have no idea how to use it (probably the latter). It is AF-C but it just doesn't to want to focus on the bird but rather the foliage or something in the background. Even in the attached pic it is aimed right at the tree trunk where the creeper is but to my eyes this is blurry and ugly. It was 1/2500 shot off my back door and the tree is only like 20 feet away.

>Try setting your camera to focus priority rather than shutter release to

I don't know what this means actually. I am using a 70-300mm kit lens and even for just ducks a few feet away from me they are not crisp and look bad.
>>
>>3487775

Just looks extremely cropped to me, like you're at the limits of your resolution. With 300mm, I'd want to be about 10-15 feet from that bird for a clean shot.

Here is some ducks I got tonight across a pond, 100+ feet away and at 300mm because idk, I thought I needed that level of zoom for how far they are. What should I be setting it to if not the full 300?

*at most 10-15, sorry. More like 5 feet. You just need to get very close for small birds if you want a lot of fine detail, there's no way around it. If you can't do that, opt for a wider composition and don't try to tease detail out of a shot at 100% resolution, it doesn't work. Let some of the environment in if you have to, it will add a lot more to the shot than centering on the subject as much as possible.

70-300 is my choice for small songbirds because you can focus at ~4 feet, have plenty of zoom range to compose and track fast subjects, can poke it between leaves and branches easily so you don't end up with obstructions that are invariably close to the front element and very out of focus, clouding the image. My only complaint is it's a bit slow, but f/2.8 is a bit too bulky when dealing with shooting into brush that close.

TL;DR: 1 in 1000 encounters might net you the opportunity to get that detail, but don't discount the other 999. Work with the situation instead of trying to force an outcome.

Looks about right to me, to be honest. Reminds me of my 50-300 on my D90. My 70-300 isn't exactly super sharp either, you just need to get closer.
>>
>>3487783
So for this owl are you using 300mm? It looks pretty far away.

I'll try to back off the full 300 tomorrow and see what I can do. It's tough because I want that full screen body shot like you get with the owl. That creeper visits my back deck often so I'll try to get up closer next time and compare.

>I'll try to back off the full 300 tomorrow

I don't mean back off your zoom, I mean don't crop your shots. It looks like you're cropping. >>3487775 >>3487778 just look like what I'd expect if shot from too far away and cropped to near 100%.

>>3487781 looks about right for a shot that's getting close to a good working range. Just overexposed a bit and shouldn't be cropped so much. There may be a tiny bit of thermal issue as well. Heat shimmer can kill wildlife photography. Some days I can't get anything other than vaseline shots even at close range and have to call it quits.

Again, it all looks about right to me for a 300mm zoom. Just too far away. Wait until you shoot a sparrow or something at 5 feet, you'll see how good 300mm zoom can be.

I don't know how to post the full pic I guess since the file is 13.2 MB and 4chan says it's too big so I just had to pick a part of it to print screen and paste in paint. Doesn't matter, the full doesn't look any better. I got some shots of a chickadee off my deck railing and they still look blurry even though it's really close. Not sure how to get much closer since they're super skittish.

>Your pic is 500 ISO it says and my silhoutte was 360 so idk how much of a difference that is going to make.
is this a ruse? comparing our ISO without regard to the sensor manufacturer, system, lens info, shutter speed, etc. is nonsensical.
If you're in manual your camera can't automatically expose for the background instead of the foreground, but it's still up to you to expose the subject correctly. So just do that.
>>
>>3488031
Well I don't know how. I had the shutter set and the aperature set and ISO was set to auto. I thought the point was it would calculate the best one for the lighting conditions so I guess not. So I need to raise ISO then? I was under the assumption it was for low-light conditions, not broad daylight, which is why I'm trying to figure out what exactly I did wrong here.

Expose for what you want to see. Your camera automatically exposed for the sky. It's not just about ISO. Start with pic related and start playing.

Google some info on exposure... you don't have to sit around an image board and wait for answers, they are all out there if you use a search engine.

I have a clip on bird I'm going to go attach to a branch and try out some things, but what I was saying is my camera has those options in your pic and when I tried them out on a street sign earlier there was virtually no difference between them, all other settings being equal. I'll see what I get now with this experiment.

Just use exposure compensation. +1 or +2 until you like what you see. Tbh spot metering should be able to take care of it, if you point the spot at a dark part of the scene (and not the sky). But if that's not enough, just add exposure through exposure compensation.

If the scene doesn't have too much contrast, and if you're pointing to something not too bright or too dark, the metering modes will give you more or less the same exposure.

The idea of a meter is that it will give you settings such that the end result will be middle grey in luminosity (which works because that's what most natural scenes look like in terms of luminosity).

In averaging mode, it'll read the whole scene and make it look on average middle grey. This doesn't work well with scenes that you want predominantly dark or predominantly white (for instance in your pic, you want your scene predominantly white/bright).
In center weighted mode, it will read only a patch in the center (where the camera is pointed at) and make that look middle grey. If you point it at something dark, it will brighten the picture (to make the dark spot appear middle grey), and vice versa if you point it to something bright.

Spot mode is the same as centre weighted, just a much smaller patch.

If you want brighter pics, put you camera in spot metering and point the spot at a dark part of the scene, and use those settings. If you want it even brighter, add exposure compensation.

Okay so here is what happened. I focused directly on the bird. Same shutter, aperature, ISO for each picture, only difference was I changed the meter. Literally no change at all, bird is still too dark in all of them.

I did another run of doubling ISOs under each meter and yeah the bird got brighter, but the sky went from blue to white. I don't know how to get the bird bright and the sky blue like in >>3488027

They do move, but in some areas where there are baiters they tend to go back to every year and eventually they just stay and starve. Around my area there is a road where they always are every year and you'll see a guy get paid to take people out in the field to bait and take shots of them. Really took the fun out of snowy owls for me.
>>
>>3488020
You camera's meter will avoid blowing out the sky, so you need to use exposure compensation by a couple stops to lift it up. The sky will blow out but the bird will be exposed properly. Shooting raw you can bring back some of the sky, or shoot like you did and just raise the shadows a ton. Alternatively use a fill flash with a better beamer and it will even out the light.

Too lame for me, glad I don't know of anyone here who does it. I also avoid people and any popular birding spots at all costs. 15 people all getting the same shots sounds very depressing. It's also why I hate safaris or other guided tours if they are for photography reasons.

Went into Henry's a while ago to pick up some gear and the sales guy asked me if I was going to the "eagle feed" and described it. Some farm that chucks chickens to them every year so lazy casuals can all get the exact same shots and post them on FB... a bunch of eagles fighting over farm chickens like seagulls at the dump. I was kind of disgusted. I said something along the lines off "No, where is it so I can avoid it at all costs?" and he laughed.

Yeah I get that, when I go on walks in provincial parks I tend to just follow a trail till I find a game trail and just go off, just to avoid people.

I work at a Henry's so I hear about these things fairly often, whenever someone comes in and plans to do birding I always mention baiting and 98% of the time the person is against it which is really good to hear.

Game trails are definitely a good resource. People are the only reason why I wear muted colors, not to hide from animals. I prefer to avoid provincial parks too, because there is plenty of crown land to explore where you will never encounter anyone else.

How's Henry's? Commission, right? I worked for commission years ago and loved it. I'm sure you must get a bit of a discount too.

I don't live north enough to get much crown land, but the provincial parks around me are large enough that I could jump off a trail whenever and not see or hear anyone all day.

Commish is my gas money, it's ok though, Discount isn't as much as most think on Serial #ed items, accessories are where I save more. But it's all about numbers there and the only number that really matters in "HELP" %. If you go and buy a camera or lens and don't get HELP you screw that sales person (at least in some stores).

>thinking any one lens can be perfect for everything

Anon, I was there not you. Look at the second shot, I couldn't even fit it in the frame. I needed my 300 that day, and nothing else. APS-C would have fucked me over further as well.

I use different lenses all the time, so don't tell me what I "need". Sounds to me like you're still relying purely on focal length and cropping (and crop sensor lies) to get the shot, which isn't the right way of going about it. You have to move beyond that at some point.

You should have as little distance between you and the subject that you can manage, as long as you can still compose nicely. If it means ditching some focal length, then that's what you do. Nothing beats getting closer. I ditch my main body on the ground all the time to get closer with 70-200 or whatever my choice is that day. In this case, my secondary should have been 300mm.

Though depending on the person you can usually get something for free like a good filter or memory card, either at the beginning of the month when they start fresh stats or at the end when they don't care haha.

Most hard goods (serial numbered things) go on sale for the same price an employee would get it, and used items that we sell go on sale probably about 4 times a year for 20% off which is the same an employee gets so keep an eye out for that if you want.

Also lots of people may hate extended warranties, but I've seen enough repairs and the costs for them that the extended is 98% of the time worth it.

>>3488196

Same. Insurance you can shop around for, choosing the coverage you want is the only way to go about it.

>drop lens off a cliff
>shrug, get new one

Really worth it. Insure the fuck out of everything and decide on how to proceed if the time comes. If you fuck up your 8 year old body, you may just write it off and buy another, but drop your new lens after 6 months and you'll gladly claim it and absorb the tiny rate increase.
>>
>>3488197
>Could be an interesting read, interesting how lower income buy it more.
Because it's a terrible deal that isn't worth the money and only really appeals to people who are afraid of having to come up with a possible replacement cost at some point after the warranty period ends.
>The thing with insurance companies is they want to make money too
This is very true, but insurance also covers things that will likely happen to my gear, not some mechanical failure that's obviously a manufacturing fuckup that's somehow didn't show up during the warranty period and isn't part of a recall, and usually for cheaper than any extended warranty.
>and if you want to get all the quotes and jump through all the hoops they need you to
It's part of my business insurance. If you're not shooting for business, the there's stupidly easy options like joining one of those photographer's groups, getting a rider on your home owner's/renter's insurance or the like, and again, we're talking about something that covers theft, accidental damage, being dumb damage, and all the stuff that a warranty of any length doesn't cover.
>then you do you bud.
I'm positive that they push stuff like that to the point of apparently being a performance metric for their sales people just to help customers and not because it makes them so much money that the super rare claims against it can't begin to touch the amount of revenue it generates.
>>
>>3488199
100% yes. I'm not made of money. I can afford to replace all of my gear, but dear god that would hurt. The price of insurance is worth it and has paid off for me twice already.
>>
>>3488202
I find it harder to see to people that have a budget, but it's a sales thing you have to over come in most cases. I tend to let a lost HELP sale go and move on to the next.

>cheaper than any extended warranty
that depends on the camera or lens. For instance an T7i the extended cost ~$130 and repairs on average for an entry level like that are about $250. On a pro body it may cost $250 for the extended but the average repair costs about $500.

I feel like I'm trying to sell you something right now and it feels weird haha

It is a huge profit generator, but if all we did was sell hard goods it would be about 10-15% GP which isn't enough to keep a company afloat. In reality if some companies didn't sell an extended warranty they'd have sank years ago.
>>
>>3488204

I tacked everything onto my homeowner's insurance, total $1M in coverage because it made the most sense dollar for dollar despite me not owning that much property. You also want to be able to cover other people... you never know when you may fuck up and destroy your shit as well as someone else's.

Insurance is pretty cheap, so might as well go platinum. I'd have to pay my premium for 18 years before it equaled my most expensive lens, so it's well worth it. You don't really feel that kind of expense, and the peace of mind is really nice.
>>
Extended / store warranties make perfect sense for the right people, it's just not for everyone. If you have property insurance, it doesn't make much sense unless you want to avoid your premium going up down the road. Really though, if you always bought extended warranties (from stores that may not even exist next year) you'd probably be paying more than any rate increase in the long run anyway.

If you're a kid buying a $1000 lens or something, it makes perfect sense.

I agree with all the insurance talk, in a utopian world you'd use insurance on stolen or damaged things then use the extended on repairs, but that's just me.

I recently got a used 500mm V1 from my work and added the extended, because one of the benefits is that if they can't service it they replace it with same or most equivalent. and according to Canon the V1 isn't serviced anymore meaning that if I have to send it away and they can't fix it i might be getting a V2

On repairs that almost definitely won't be needed after the warranty is over. That's the key fact you keep ignoring. One of two things almost always happens with consumer electronics (regarding warranty-covered failures). It'll either fail practically immediately, or it won't until the end of its serviceable life. It's simply a bad bet.

I think that's one thing a lot of people into photography don't really realize: good insurance is really cheap, especially if you're already carrying some other kind of insurance already.
>>
>>3488218
Of course it's a numbers game, and you are absolutely right, either it's a lemon doa or it fails after a year/year.5. There are many things that can increase its chance of failure after that year, mostly use but that's obvious.

Some people have different opinions on it. I just want to sell it so I don't hear from higher ups that I'm not selling it and I also don't want to hear complaints from customers about how much a repair costs. If none of those were issues I'd be happy talking photography and selling cameras.

Look onto which mirrorless you can adapt it to. With auto focus lens sou should look into adaptors that allow it, or you'll be stuck with paperweight. Should be possible on apsc Canon/Fuji/Sony and m43 Panasonic/Olympus. You should get s-af. Forget c-af.

if you do wildlife, don't bother switching to mirrorless
DSLRs phase detect sensors are still better for that, not saying mirrorless can't be competent on it but get some new glass instead of switching to mirrorless, the tamron 70-300mm is just really bad.

I spent all afternoon at a park not long ago looking for hawks, herons, etc. Nothing. Then just as I sit down on the side of the trail to put my stuff away and head home a blackbird lands like ten feet from me.

I have yet to get a good shot of one. I'm a pixel peeper though, so am probably just being too picky... and I haven't really bothered to try much. Potential for a good action shot as they like to catch dragonflies.

Hey!

I rented 200-500 two times (pic related), one was awesome, one was shitty, but that's how it is I guess. I overall liked it a lot an would like to get into it deeper with next Summer.

I wish to hunt for does and maybe boars with the camera. Apart of other factors like noise and scent, to what extent it is important to blend in coloristically? Is full camo worth it, or simple earthy colors would be enough? Any advices for head protection (sun, ticks, mosquitos)?
