Dark Edges

A kite flies on a cloudy morning. I struggled with the low light and the fast flying kite to capture this. He seemed to be in a hurry.

Flying HighSeen at Russell Market. The large amounts of stale meat attracts a lot of kites. A delightful place for kite photography.

Some tips for bird photography:

1. Choose the sharpest aperture on your lens (generally its two stops smaller than the maximum size).

2. Choose a shutter speed above 1/500 sec.

3. Make all your focus points active.

4. Set the focus mode to AI SERVO and keep tracking the birds.

5. Most importantly – Wait for the light to fall on the bird!

Have fun..
