Description: I like the late afternoon sun light just right as Moose calf turns around. Of course I needed no motivation to photograph this subject I was just grateful this calf allowed me the time I needed to capture the moment. I was out birding so my camera and lens were set for warblers.
My camera equipment was D500 Nikon with 500mm 5/6 lens, settings; 1/1600 sec, f7.1, 25600 ISO, Manual starting setting ISO at 100. I was out birding and typical setting are 1600 sec, manual, ISO100.
Specific Feedback Requested: If I had know I would be photographing a baby moose standing still what setting would you have suggested? Thank you
Pertinent technical details or techniques: What I would change would be not cutting off the feet, I also removed some twig branches that were near his nose and a horsefly on his nose and a few flies on his butt. I was out birding so my camera and lens were set for warblers.
Is this a composite? Not sure what this questions is asking “is this a composite”?
