Puffin In-Flight Portrait - Grimsey Island, Iceland
Nikon D5, 500mm f/4e AFS, f/4, 1/1250sec, ISO 2000
The technical capabilities of today’s camera systems are amazing. Shots so difficult a few years ago are a breeze nowadays. Shooting small subjects against dark, low contrast, backgrounds and having them come out sharp is amazing. This image shows off this. I’m shooting wide open and using the camera’s 3-D color auto-focus technology that’s keeping the bird’s eye tack-sharp. Sure, there are techniques I use to help. But, it’s not my skills bringing this together. It’s the camera doing its amazing work.
