    Default Eastern Imperial Eagle

    I've been trying experimenting with various camera setting , with various PP techniques and B&W images etc.
    This one with burnt our back ground , hope you will like it.
    Since I had no choice here but to click the eagle with sky in background hence tried with burnt background and I feel it came out good
    Advise and critique are more than welcome please.

    Canon 7D , Sigma 150-500mm , 1/800 , ISO-400 , EC =1 step , f/6.3/

    Nice sighting of this majestic bird. It becomes difficult to expose the subject against the sky. Giving the +1 EC has helped here to get the bird well exposed. The head turn and the eye contact adds to the composition. Is the AF point on the body? I think the eye being further away is not covered in the depth of field. Well captured in the given conditions. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree with the previous comments. It is fine to dial higher exposure compensation to lose details on the sky and create a high key effect. The challenge here is to get details on the eye. This pose is a bit tough from a depth of field perspective as the head is a bit far away and covering both the tail and head becomes a challenge. Where was this clicked?

    Cheers,

    Dada , I got so excited to see the bird that just forgot to change aperture setting , I wish I could have set it to f/8 , that would have got the eye and head in perfect focus.
    Ya ! nobody is perfect , still learning . After this; the biggest lesson is keep your nerve calm.

    It is not easy to hold your nerves. On one wet morning, twelve summers ago in bandhavgarh, we were following the pugmarks of B1. For some reason, B1 decided to turn back and walk straight towards our jeep. I had a garrulous photographer in my jeep. He used to speak non stop. When the tiger appeared infront of us about 40 yards away and then started to walk directly towards us, there was pin drop silence. The jeep engine was switched off. B1 decided to pass by our side hardly 5 feet or so without any hesitation. When he was by the side of our jeep, I clicked one head shot at around 55mm. Only after B1 crossed us, then the jeep driver reminded our photographer to shoot. He was too stunned to photograph. He said in hindi "hum tiger itna close dekh ke saans lena bhul gaya. Photo kaise leta" means "watching the tiger so close, I even forgot to breathe. How could I take photos?"

    Just take a deep breath. Calm yourself and then click. Move slowly so that you don't scare away the bird.
