(5D Mark II, 300mm, ISO 6400, 1/100 @ f/5.6)
Wow… Not sure if this makes sense photographically speaking, but taking this picture yesterday morning was a challenge because it was still somewhat dark out, my telephoto lens isn’t fast enough for low light situations, I was too far away to use my external flash, and I was too lazy to get my tripod. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I gather using a tripod wouldn’t have mattered anyway because these two “Love Birds” would not sit still. I apologize in advance if this is TMI for some, but they were mating right before I captured this shot, which is why I assume they couldn’t chillax and why I came up with the title I did.
Thank goodness for shooting in RAW however, because even though the picture looked like crap originally, I was able to tweak it some and then used Photoshop to give it an old-time artistic-type feel… At least that’s how it looks to me. In the end, I’m happy with it and hope you like it as well.
Taking this scenario into consideration, if I missed the boat on accomplishing a better picture in-camera, I would love to know how I could have achieved it.
Have a great day, y’all!
