Small Steps

Core Creek Park, PA

 

Just yesterday a friend posted a killer RTH image (GregOb www.flickr.com/photos/gregob/8021654040/in/photostream).. I told him this was one raptor I still did not have great shots of... All my current shots the eyes are so black and sunken looking...

 

WELL this morning i'm driving around and I spot 2 RTH's in a tree top. So I pull a U-turn and park, get my gear out set up my rig and start shooting away.. Thrilled as all get out... One flys off and i'm drilling shots so I move closer and the second flys off all while I'm drilling shots... All this lasted maybe 5 minutes.. I look down at my camera and realize I blew it! I never set my exposure and shutter speed.. I was so excited.. I just forgot! Are you kidding me.... What a dope! I'm always so careful to think of everything.. I blew it big time.. So all my 288 clicks are way under exposed and all the whites are toasted and my sharpness is well, crappy... Here is one of many.. UGG........
