Thanks Robert. Here's a screenshot from Lightroom showing a typical crop:These are all excellent. Are the images cropped? Are you shooting from a hide?
Thanks for the info. Impressive results, despite the crop.Thanks Robert. Here's a screenshot from Lightroom showing a typical crop:
I shoot from inside my kitchen window, through double-pane glass, and use a perch adjacent to a bird feeder to get a more natural setting. I "hide" my position with a piece of black fabric temporarily draped over the window, with a slit for my lens. Simple but effective. It takes lots of patience (like fishing) and is a good way to occupy time spent indoors during the stay-at-home order.
Stay safe and be well,
Excellent example of differences in how lenses render a scene . Near wide open the 100/2 S lens is an exceptional portrait lens . You can see the wonderful micro contrast (in the tone separation ) and resolution ...without the strong edge to edge contrast of the SL primes . Depends ,of course , on the aesthetic you favor ..does the subject/light require more “capture “ contrast (dull overcast day or if you want a high contrast B&W )..the the 90 SL would be favored . Strong high contrast lighting or shooting people ..you might want a softer look . The 100/2 is a welcome and somewhat unique addition . :thumbup:
