Tested my newly acquired 150-600 lens at Muir Woods this past weekend.  Here are a few of the pictures that I took.  Let me know your thoughts.

Love those nature photos. If I may: the photos look a bit dark or light. What settings were you using? Good photo of the deer as you were able to get the photo without spooking her. Nice thing about DSLR cameras, one can experiment with settings to make sure you get the best shot. I will take several photos to check. We have the John Muir Trail through East Tennessee. Let's see some more.

Hi John, I used my R6 M II with the RF 24-105 f4 L IS USM lens for some of the scenery shots, however, for the ones with the deer I used my new Sigma 150-600mm f5-6.3 C lens. It was the first time using it and I have a learning curve to go through.  With the RF 24-105mm f4 I was playing with lights and shadows and was focusing more on composition in that form.   When I get home I may add the settings for each picture as it is a good learning exercise.   The 150-600mm is a f5-6.3 lens and it needs more light when shooting it and I didn't adjust it to compensate for dark or brightness as I was  experimenting.  The one deer shot was simply in the shadows.  Redwoods are pretty tall and in places light is limited.  Thanks for your thoughts. 

Cheers,
Joe

I have learned that in photography, one never stops learning. Example: I did a photo shoot for a meeting last year. Went bananas trying to eliminate the background glare from a double door. Two weeks later, I happened to stumble across the setting I needed in the manual (loaded it as a shortcut and refer to it to see what I else can learn). Above all, have fun! BTW, I have a Sigma 150-300 lens for a T7. Love it!

Lovely! I always love testing new lenses. They are the paint brushes to the canvas. 

Most importantly, did you have fun!?

Hi Addison,  absolutely.  I had fun !  Walking through the redwoods is always a great experience and testing a new lens made it more exciting.    Always experimenting and learning.  BTW, I love the commingling of light and shadows in your photos !  Very nice !

Redwoods? Be prepared to take fuzzy pictures of Bigfoot. 😊

You mean sasquatch ?  They're further north in the Sequoia National forest.   However, one will never know.  If I did get a shot of one it wouldn't be fuzzy more than likely it would be hairry !   lol 😀
