Image 7/20 – In Love… storchs in the wetlands. I was lucky the day before. I came to a place packed with storchs. I own no long lens. So I had to go with my 18-55mm zoom hunting the fast flying birds. Used the new focus features of my X-T1 for the first time. It was fun and may be I go back on the weekend. Practice… practice… practice…
This image is part of my series: Develop my personal style
The first 6 images are already published. If you are interested… please visit my blog. Thanks in advance!
The remaining images are dedicated to Amy. I was inspired by her “birds in the air” shots. So I hope I am closing the gap between her skills shooting birds in motion a little bit. She is still master of the game! Go and check out her birdies. 🙂
What am I doing? Winter storm in Dangast in the National Park Wadden Sea, high tide, gray, cold, windy, rain. And there I am… trying to shoot a long exposure image. Tripod, lens, camera, filter (big stopper)… dirty and wet. I got wet. 30 seconds in these weather conditions is a long time. I used every trick I had in mind to stabilize the camera. There is some blur… but I think that is OK. 1 image, back into the car. Hope you like it! 🙂
