Down a wee bit today…
I went to Seaham this afternoon. Well, I went to Newcastle first, to commit some acts of photography, then got a train to Seaham, where I committed some more, then got a train back again. More on all that later, but for now here’s one I’m quite happy with.
I was having another play with the continuous autofocus on the X-T2, with it set to the custom setting intended to track erratically moving objects, which seemed to be the best choice for birds in flight in a moderately strong breeze. I’ve got a few nicely successful captures, of which this was the most immediately appealing, as I didn’t need to crop it to show off the bird. Taken at the long end of the 50-140mm lens, with the aperture
wide open at a moderate f/9 to get a reasonably short exposure and get the whole bird in focus.
