Day 15: Training with the Gulls

Training with the Gulls

Day 15 was grey and overcast so I fixed my flash to the camera and fed the gulls instead.

I wanted an exposure of at least 1/500 seconds in order to freeze the birds so I sacrificed ISO and exposure here.

And since I was feeding the birds with my left hand and shooting with my right, I had to use the 17-40mm lens because it is my lightest zoom.

(I have cropped out the left part in order to balance the bridge).

I will probably bin the lot but I wanted to put one out there . . .

(The bridge in the background wasn’t my choice; I wanted the birds with a different background but I am still learning to train them to abide with my wishes).
