I just can’t resist. Here’s another shot of the deer grazing in the meadow. The other one taken down the road a ways where I took my pans. The deer seem pretty calm considering how close it is to hunting season. The second picture was taken pretty much at dusk, not very much light left – so I think it turned out well despite the long exposure. You should be able to tell from the data on the second shot I didn’t do a very good job of shifting settings from pans to wildlife. A two second exposure of a deer? Pretty lucky.
How about another fall safari shot. This one is a 10 shot HDR pan. I did two pans of this building. I’m fascinated by decaying building and it’s fairly obvious other people are interested in this one. I would bet by looking at the props and paths through all the weeds that photographers use this all the time for photo shots.
Did I mention we say a fair amount of wild life on our safari? Here’s an example: A white tailed deer shot with my 300mm lens. This one was pretty brave and kept walking toward me. If it had been a bear I’d have been a little nervous. Taken at 300mm 1/90th second f9.5 ISO 400. The camera was mounted on a tripod.
Let’s do something a little different today. Here’s a 20 shot HDR Panorama. Not different so far. How about leaving out some of the picture in between the pictures so its a panorama but four individual pictures. And no the way I shot this I can’t make it a single panorama. I did shot it again with everything so I can make it a single pan. Anyway this is kind of fun. So here’s the stats. Five exposures of each picture at 1/60th and 1/4 second at f13 ISO 400 55mm on my 16-55mm lens.
Since I believe in giving credit where credit is due…Janis (my wife) saw this and insisted I stop and shoot it. Turned out awesome. We were out for our second annual fall color safari we saw lots of great color, deer and a fox (which I didn’t shoot – he was way to fast). I’ll post more latter, but I wanted to brag on how good my wife getting at finding great shots! This is a 15 shot HDR Panorama. Exposure is between 1/8th and 2 seconds at one stop intervals (total of 5 exposure per panorama segment – 3 segments) f13 ISO 200 21 mm on my 16 to 50 mm lens.
