NPhoto - - Apprentice -

This shot of an Arc­tic Tern was taken right at the end of the day. I felt by then that I was get­ting com­fort­able tak­ing por­trait shots, and I was opt­ing for an aper­ture of around f/5.6, a shut­ter speed of roughly 1/400 sec and tweak­ing the ISO slightly for each dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion. We’d packed up our kit and were walk­ing back to the boat when I saw this grumpy tern squawk­ing an­grily, so I got my Nikon back out for a fi­nal snap. I fo­cused on his bright eyes and Chris sug­gested I crop the shot as a por­trait, which re­ally im­proved the fi­nal re­sult.
