I'm more interested in birds of prey photos. However I have an inlet nearby and it seems like good training ground for me.

I do get alot of darker photos even though the sun is up. I wonder if that is do to the 70-300mm lens. Seems like when I use 200ISO I get a better result. Hope you enjoy these, since their the best out of 266 i took today.

Nice shots cool breeze.

I do a lot of birding, 200 iso is where I start going to 400 or 800 iso depending on the light. With a 300mm lens you will need at least 1/500 shutter speed for handheld BIF to stop motion blur. Crank up the iso and see if that will help with the sharpness.



Keep on shooting, :|

Jeff, thanks for the tips! I had a better day in reference to the light. Now I'll look into a balance between the noise and light
