Weekly Round Up

Got out for a few hours yesterday before Storm Ciara hits London today (all of the Royal Parks are closed today as a precaution) and got a few usable images using the remote shooting method again

As much as I like this approach it’s becoming apparent what the limitations are when shooting this way.

They include:

With a 22mm lens the camera needs to be close to the subject which scares off a lot of creatures even when it’s camouflaged and hidden

This method burns up the battery life really quickly and I’m draining two of them out in a session where one would normally be more than enough

With the camera on the ground I’m missing lots of potential shots whilst waiting for something to get close to the camera

In the park I’m currently shooting in the only creatures that are not disturbed by this method are Robins, Squirrels & Pigeons and as much as I love photographing the first two it would be nice to get shots of other things too!

Going forwards I plan to experiment using this method with both a 50mm and 85mm lens to get a bit more distance on my shots which will hopefully stop scaring subjects away. I’m also going to spend part of all sessions using these lenses handheld to get a variety of viewpoints and angles

The beauty of wildlife photography is that you never stop learning and get the opportunity to experiment with how you want to get your images

Here’s some shots from yesterday:
