We got stuck straight into flight shots when we ar­rived on Sta­ple Is­land, the first lo­ca­tion of the day. The light was good and the puffins were zip­ping about over our heads with mouths full of sand eels. I wasn’t sure how to set up my D800 to freeze the birds mid-flight but Chris talked me through which set­tings to use and ex­plained how to pre­fo­cus be­fore each at­tempt. The more shots we took, the more de­cent im­ages I cap­tured of each flight, but I re­ally like this one – the puf­fin’s head is sharp but there’s a hint of move­ment in the wings and there’s plenty of space for him to fly into, with the out-of-fo­cus cliffs and other bird in the back­ground hint­ing at his en­vi­ron­ment.
