Bird Photo Shoots

These are the outcome from a couple different evening photo shoots. I’m still hunting for the perfect, amazingly sharp osprey pictures… but think I’ll need to invest in a tripod to really get one. These are all hand held and it’s just too hard to focus at these focal lengths.  For now, I just need to settle with these and hope I get lucky some day.  I’m also waiting for the baby to take flight.  This is the most active I’ve seen it yet.

    Nice! My favorite might be the close-up on the wooden post with the narrow depth of field, the one right next to the shot of a nail in the post. As for tripods, look at thrift stores or even camera shops selling used equipment. 10 or 12 yrs ago, I got a lightweight, sturdy aluminum tripod used for $10, and it has served me well!

    Thanks for the suggestions re: the tripod. I happen to know someone who works in a thrift shop, I’ll have to ask her to keep her eyes out for something 😉 I’ll also have to do some hunting to see what I can find in the way of used camera shops… I’m not sure that RI has quite the reach the Twin Cities will though.
