One Angry Goose
My daughter and I were taking another little photo walk at a park a few weeks ago. "Let's take some pictures of the geese," I said. I kept getting a little closer to the geese, and a little closer, and a little closer. (What can I say, I like to take portraits, even of geese.)
One big goose didn't like that.
When I got a bit too close for him to tolerate, he made a really scary sound. And I was finished. (My daughter did try to warn me.)
To get a portrait, even of a goose, I set my camera on Aperture Priority and use a wide aperture (small number) to help blur the background. If you want the whole scene in focus, including the background, use a narrow aperture (big number.)
My daughter also gave me some great tips about metering when shooting in manual. She often uses spot metering, which I have never used much before, so I experimented with that and learned some new things. I am so glad she likes photography.
This beautiful duck wasn't as aggressive as the goose. Not aggressive at all, actually. He posed for me.
I always wanted to have horses like these. I'm glad I can see them at the park.
They provide some benefits for the garden too.
Have a great week!
