1.18.2022 • Trying to teach this rare 9 month old Snowy Owl how to pose using non-verbal que. 🦉 Kidding. Taken this past evening, this was my second time ever out shooting bird photography. Wasn’t expecting her head to turn 180 degrees like the Exorcist. But like any portrait or landscape work, it’s all about the composition. This American flag unfurling behind her was the perfect symbolism being a new resident of the nation’s Capitol. • The last time a snowy owl was seen in the DC area was back in 2014. Before that, there has never been one sighted hence this rarity. • I know a lot of folks have asked. And I’m always happy to share. This capture was taken at focal length 900mm positioned about 100ft away on a steady tripod. Shot with manual focus, the settings were ISO 3200, f6.3 and .4 seconds. Knowing that the owl would be perched in the same spot for some time, I found the right composition and took a few test shots dialing in the exact number on the manual focus bar. Once everything was all set, I shot the owl using a 5 second shutter delay to minimize tripod shake and resetting the focus back to it’s original number each time. Calm winds help. But ultimately it’s about luck having her provide the best pose. As a disclaimer, bird photography is not my expertise since this is my second time out. Even if this was shot using a 70-200mm lens, settings would be fairly similar. Perhaps lowering the aperture and ISO a bit. It’s all about your composition in the end and proper adjustment of the exposure triangle. Hope this helps anyone going out for their next capture of this ultra rare snowy owl. Good luck. • #weclickdc #perspective #winter #january #americanflag #snowyowl #owl #birds #birdsofinstagram #unionstationdc #washingtondc #mydccool #igdc #dcchasers #dctography #walkwithlocals #streetmeetdc #washmagphoto #fox5dc #working4you #7newsdc #wusa9 #cbc #natgeo #natgeotravel #yourshotphotographer #mastinlabs #sonyalpha 📷 Sony a7iv 200-600mm f5.6-6.3 G
