These are fantastic, very nice quality. I wouldn't have expected such good results from a reflector.
I've shot with my refractors and you're right, focus is a big challenge and when the action starts it gets even tougher.
Thanks a lot! I was surprised with the quality of pictures myself They needed a touch of PP at first. Reflector itself gives very low contrast but actually I quite like that. No shadows are too deep and no highlights are blown in the original picture.
Amazing. Did any people see you? I can't imagine the interest this thing might be generating.
Hopefully not. I was in the middle of nowhere really. Some 10 km away from the nearest village. I wouldn't dear using this in a park or somewhere public
Really challenging setup and taking distance into consideration great shots. Now you have to find some nests. I don't remember anyone else from Lithuania, welcome. With this setup you can photograph birds in neighboring countries.
Thanks, neighboring countries might be a bit too far though But nests would be great. I did see some bigger birds there before but couldn't find their nests. This setup works good when you are stationed in a location that birds like to visit. Since you can be quite far away it is easier and it doesn't intimidate birds that much as a sneaky photographer a couple meters away.
Interesting concept, as said I think birds in flight could be tricky
True, I wasn't even trying to get them midflight. This works best when they land somewhere and mind their own business It was really interesting watching them doing this and that. I wish my camera had video capabilities I'd surely try that!
Wow, I didn't expect this much attention when I was posting these! This is really encouraging to go out again and try shooting some more Thank you guys!
