Digital SLR Photography - - Expert Critique - by Adrian Still­well

Canon EOS 7D Mk II with EF 400mm f/ 5.6L USM lens. Ex­po­sure: 1/ 1600sec at f/ 8 ( ISO 500).

What we think: Pho­tograph­ing skit­tish wildlife is no mean feat, and Adrian has nailed it! The tele­photo fo­cal length has com­pressed per­spec­tive, but by stop­ping down to f/ 8 Adrian has ren­dered a nice depth- of- field and utilised his lens's sweet spot for op­ti­mal sharp­ness. Rais­ing the ISO keeps the shut­ter speed nice and fast too. The fram­ing is good and tim­ing and fo­cus are spot on – all in all there's not much we'd change here! Why it works 1) Dif­fused back­drop 2) Sharp fo­cus­ing and good tim­ing 3) Good depth- of- field
