Low II

June 1, 2010

I found a few more examples. I think in the Little Blue Heron images we see the benefits quite dramatically, whereas the Great Egrets seem to look better with a higher angle. I thought these images might help to continue our little discussion from yesterday πŸ™‚

Here are two Great Egrets where I think the higher angle works. If you want to include reflections you have to be higher.

Here we see a super low Great Egret. It is too close to the camera, but you can see what I meant big “leg issue” With that low angle you have problems to keep the virtual legs….

With seeing these examples I think we can say that more or less eye level is the way to go πŸ™‚

    Hi Jan,

    It took a while for my brain (eyes) to figure out what you were saying,
    but with the virtual legs explanation i get the picture!

    How was your recent trip to Florida?? What was your favorite subject to photograph? I really liked that pelican eating the fish.

    Thanks for the good info.!

    Hey Dena,

    sometimes it’s tough do describe what you actually mean. πŸ™‚

    Florida was fatastic. I have never been at a place with such a great variety of easy approachable birds πŸ™‚ I took about 30k images in two weeks πŸ™‚

    I think my favorite subject were Black Vultures. They are not the most pretty birds, but they have lots of character. When you are very close to them you can see how smart they actually are.
