Avocets Filling the Frame
Being close enough to Avocets where they fill the frame doesn’t happen to me often enough but it’s very cool when it does. It helped on this trip to have my 1.4X teleconverter installed along with my flash. Had to crank up the ISO to 800 since the clouds were out at sunrise.
Taken with Canon 7D and Canon 500mm F4 IS II lens and 1.4X III teleconverter mounted on Skimmer ground pod with Wimberley II head, fill flash using 580 EX II w/better beamer
1/320 sec @ F5.6, ISO 800, evaluative metering, fill flash at – 3 stops, 700mm
1/400 sec @ F5.6, ISO 800, evaluative metering, fill flash at – 3 stops, 700mm
