I shot this, this morning at a park  (freehand)

Red headed woodpecker

 

If anyone has suggestions on camera settings I would be grateful.

By the time I was done taking pictures of this bird I took exactly 200 pictures of it 😁

 

 

About this photo: 

Camera:  Canon 90D

Lens: Tamron 18-400mm

Exposure Time: 1/40

ISO: 100

F-stop: 6.3

I also shot this one same settings but f/22

 

Which actually stops the head from blurring and the color is much nicer IMO.

Re: Share your wildlife photography!

Hello.

 

A few thoughts:

 

1. since the bird is moving you want a higher shutter speed to stop motion.

 

2. you are on a crop sensor camera (which increases the apparent focal length), amplifying any camera shake

 

3. to avoid motion blur from camera shake you want the minimum shutter speed to be twice the focal lenght (on a crop sensor camera)

 

You don't say what zoom setting you used, but if you want to be ready for anything I would suggest you set the camera to Av and set the shutter speed to 1/1000.

 

You don't need a lot of depth of field for this subject, so you don't f/22.  I suggest you set the camera to f/8 and adjust ISO to get proper exposure.

 

One approach would be to use M mode, set aperture to f/8, shutter speed to 1/1000 and set the ISO to AUTO ISO.
