My Father's Day request was to be able to take portrait photographs of my daughter, Alexis. I got to play with my camera equipment, prove that dad can use a camera for more than just birds in flight photography, and provide her some professional looking pics to help her pursue a modeling career.

Very difficult bird to cqpture in flight - its skiddish. Cardinals are the hardest - very very untrusting.

However, I have a couple more captures as we text of the red wing blackbird. Will post today.

I had the camera in Sv mode - I set ISO and camera auto sets shutter speed. The lightning became brighter from when I first set the ISO. Because of that, this shot was taken at 1/3200 shutter speed and I only needed 1/1600 shutter speed which wouldve reduced my ISO to approximately 2500 = less noise. The blackbird is so dark it absorbs alot of light, resulting in the degradation of the image when pushing dynamic range in post.

In short, I missed an opportunity at a better image because of setting the camera as mentioned.

... early morning shot. This pic is an example of the sacrifices that have to be made regarding capture first and rendention second. Because this shot was taken early morning under low light, I have to acquire exposure from either iso or aperture - shutter speed at minimum 1/ 1600. All that being said, I acquired the capture at the scarifice of rendention (noice, etc.).

If the capture was acquired with a faster lens I could reduce iso, but have to sacrifice depth of field and the entire bird may not be in focus.
