View Full Version : Mixed day!

10th January 2016, 03:00 PM
Decided to try out the E-M1 along with the iPhone app to photograph the birds on the feeders I've just put up, camera bag had fallen over so a bit of a stretch to reach it, picked it up and *click* something in my back went!

After several attempts I got the camera out on the tripod and all set up to take the photos I wanted, only a couple of hours sun and the birds obviously off somewhere else for a while, but managed to take 80 or so photos, ONE of which I'm really pleased with!

Learnt a lot doing this (like how heavy the bag is since upgrading g to PRO lenses!) and am actually looking forward to having another go at this as I think I would be able to get some nice shots.

Really happy with the quality of the photos, less pleased with the framing and composition, also struggled with the app slightly, but next time.....

Glad it all worked in the end, put up the one shot you liked?

Wee man

Hope your next go works out, with the photos not your back!
Post some when you get some you like.

As someone who has stood around for half an hour waiting for my back to agree that I want to walk somewhere, I feel your pain.
