Bird Photography Help
I was playing about with my new Pentax K-r today taking some shots of flying shitehawks. I was trying the continuous shooting mode, a bit like shooting clay pidgeons with a machine gun.
I was using a 18-55mm lens (I wasn't expecting to be taking photos of birds) set at f/8, 1/640sec and ISO 200 and spot metering. It was a bit misty so didn't expect much. Didn't expect much anyway as I was just testing the feature. I also have a 55-200 kit lens.
Anyway here's a couple I got, after cropping and some pp in Photoshop. Any hints/tips on this type of shooting would be appreciated, especially from the current site expert Jan.
