Coyote. I have a lot to learn...
So, this subject is just a coyote, but I would like to be able to shoot wildlife a little better.
My long lens (70-300 G) is a handful for me at 300mm. Hard to keep it sharp. I often wish for more reach, but if I can't even handle 300mm...
These shots are either handheld with VR on, or on a fence post with VR off. VR is set to normal, not active.
I need to shadow a good wildlife shooter some time.
No critique is too brutal, let's hear it.
Is this image sharp? Am I cropping way too much?
1. ISO 125 280mm f/5.6 1/400 heavily cropped. SOOC image below
3. ISO 125 220mm f/5.6 1/400 Cropped a similar amount
4. Here's one with no crop, still not pleasantly sharp. 220mm f/5.6 1/400
What's that they say about taking your head out of the viewfinder to notice things around you?
I noticed something in post, so I wrote myself a little note to remind me not to target fixate
Thank you for looking
