An answer in search of a question?
It's probably best suited for real estate and architectural photography where precise leveling is important and where it can be used quickly and often. But it isn't a feature I'd want myself unless it was a need and I earned big bucks. No doubt there is a market for it.Looks very interesting Cindy,
May be headless but great subject separation.I'm using aperture priority mode for exposure and manually choosing the ASA. I keep an eye on the shutter speeds and adjust as necessary. I've been trying to keep my shutter speeds at or above 1/1000 sec. That may not be fast enough for stopping some of the wing motion. Of course, I was hoping to get a few with some blur to the wings to bring a sense of motion. For better or worse, I accomplished that. I am somewhat ambivalent about the second picture of the owl. I love the sense of motion that the wing blur brings, unfortunately, I caught him slightly off frame. I still like the feel of the image, although I'm a little put off by the composition.
I'm relatively new to BIF photography. I find it challenging, and a bit frustrating.
Here is another that I found interesting, but wasn't quite there. Of course, I could just title it The Headless Kite.
