Aspiring to capture the perfect shot


Photo Shoot at Kelley Park

Today I went on a photo shoot at Kelley Park in San Jose. I wanted to practice changing settings in manual mode, using my telephoto and wide angle lenses, and composition before I leave for South Africa next week. Pretend that the squirrel is a leopard!

Today I went on a photo shoot to Almaden Lake Park.  I was disappointed that the birds on the lake were blurry.  The camera was on a tripod, but I forgot to turn off image stablization.  Shot at 300mm, aperture 9. I probably should have used a larger aperture to increase depth of field, as the birds were quite far away.
