Brown Pelican early morning blur at Alafia Banks


Brown Pelican blur at Alafia Banks

Brown Pelican blur in the early morning. This photograph was created in Alafia Banks, Florida.

ISO 500 | f/4 | 1/10 | +2/3 of manual exposure compensation | Tv Mode | AI servo rear focusing

This photograph was created with the Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM lens (Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM review), the Canon EOS 5D mark III on a Gimbal head and tripod. Have a look at the equipment I typically carry with me.

 

The photograph above is a Brown Pelican in flight! One could wonder if it is not some kind UFO 🙂 A good technique to create pleasing blurs is to shoot in Tv mode to have total control over the shutter speed. A shutter speed between 1/10 to 1/30 typically gives the best results for me. If you camera body allows it, leave your ISO in auto with a cap at 3200 or a bit less if you have a 7D.
