Thanks. She’s a she. I had the lucky filter turned on in the camera. A ray of bright sunshine briefly came through the tree canopy producing that sort of natural spotlight just on her head. And she, being the super model she is, turned her head to catch it perfectly. I cropped the picture some and did basic adjustments to the RAW image file similar to what the camera would do to produce a jpeg.
You might just want to leave that lucky filter on, dude!! My camera doesn’t offer that mode, so I get a lot of dud shots. You shoot in RAW? They say that’s a good idea, and I guess I better start doing that…for when I learn LightRoom. What edit tool do you use?
I use some software that came with the camera to edit the images. It’s nothing I’d recommend anyone purchase. You may have similar software that came with your camera, if you want to get an idea if it’s worth the extra trouble to process RAW files.
Welcome to the new world order,no paper manuals. The software probably would be on a CD, if they gave you any. That looks like a dead end. Does your camera even save RAW images? Many do not. Your pictures, generally, look pretty good now. You could always keep on doing what you’re doing and save yourself from a stomach ulcer?
Old still works!, I keep telling myself. Sounds like you’re ready to go. You might need to add in a “profile” for your camera’s RAW format. Maybe not? All the basic functions should be there and similar to the latest version. Learning the basics will keep you plenty busy.
Thanks. They are beautiful. I’m hoping our local wild eagles return when the weather gets colder. I won’t get that close, but it’s fun trying. That is from a bird sanctuary where injured birds are treated and released if they’re still able to survive in the wild.
They are very regal looking. They look menacing, but like most birds, if you run across one in the wild, they’ll fly off in the other direction. This one was in captivity, which is the only way I’d get so close to it.
