Back in May of this year I captured a special moment at ISO-10000 when doing a high ISO test at Biggar Lagoon Wetlands in Grimsby.

If you’re like me, you may find photographing small, erratically-flying birds like swallows very challenging. This article features some initial test images with aggressive cropping used throughout…so be forewarned that image quality isn’t what I would ideally want.

Swallows in Flight
Photographing swallows in flight has always been a challenge for me. The birds are so small and swift I’ve always found it incredibly hard to track them and capture any usable images. Continue reading Swallows in Flight
