Todays weather was cloudy (huge clouds to the side) and possibility of thunder, so quite overcast. I bumped up the ISO to 400 as I wanted fast shutter speeds and as much DOF as possible. The aim is a good shot.
Other factors that made it tough were:-
- Two big poles I had to shoot around
- Mountains of dust which is not camera friendly
I also shot on 8fps a lot today which I normally don't like as you use a lot of disk space and get a lot of shots you probably don't want, but it does give a lot of interesting images and overall today was a lot more successful than yesterday. No in fact it was WAY more successful, yesterday I was watching the camp draft and trying to understand it, and today was watching the camera!!
I shot mainly at 1/400 and went to 1/320 when I thought my images looked a bit static and not dynamic.....I could have gone to 1/250th but the rain was looming and so I bailed out after about an hour and a half and went home to check out my catches of the day.
