Puffin Portrait With Rain - Grimsey Island, Iceland
Nikon D500, 500mm f/4e AFS, TC-14eIII, f/11, 1/400sec, ISO 1600
Because they’re everywhere on Grimsey Island, you can be really choosy on the types of portraits you can make. This bird was across the street from our lodging on a little cliff overlooking the sea. Like most of the days, it was raining. While I was a bit soaked, these guys didn’t seem to mind the rain in the least. Most be something about being outside 24/7.
I shot this with a larger f/stop or smaller aperture to increase the depth of field to get the whole bird in focus. Since the rain on the bird’s edges were so important, having the whole bird in focus vs just the eye like I normally shot was important to the image’s success.
