How quick do you need to be to get the focus and shot for such wonderful captures.

Basically, how long does it take to see, set-up and capture your shots?

Nicest damselflies I've ever seen!

Especially #3. Beautifully metallic.

Sorry tchuanyebut can you help me about sigma cu.

I have fz20 + pemaraal 62 + nikon 6t.

Where I can buy sigma cu?

Is possible to know the distance about subject with all lens?

You use AF or manual focus?

Thanks a lot

HL

HI tchuanye,

Cool photos, I love those damsel flies as their eyes are so weird and funky. The focus and detail is great but im not a fan of the cropping on the first. The third is my favourite. I noticed that you have used 1/160s exposure time, when I try and use those setting in Manual mode my EVF goes too dark for me to see it. How do you avoid this issue?

Well, it really depends. I approach this little guy very slowly, and it posed for me for a long time. Could have taken more if not for a butterfly who flew across it and frighten it away. So I had more time to compose, adjust settings etc.

Set up, well if it includes screwing on the 6T, Sigma, flash and the bounce card.....about 1 min? Focus and exposure setting about 15-30s? Take the fist shot, adjust the flash settings OR the shutter speed. Was a bright day, so I could afford a faster shutter speed.

All in all, took about 20-25 shots of it.

This butt shot was my first shot out of 2 that came out acceptably ok. This was taken quite fast...and turn out.....well acceptable. That is VERY RARE! Most of the time such shots appears blur....but sometimes, the focus, distance etc all works together for that shot.....
