  • Nerves Of Steel Or To Dumb To Duck

    The image below was the last view I had through the viewfinder before the eagle owl's wing hit my head. The handler had already done this with other members of the audience and he chose me next, as I was the only person standing up taking photos.

    I never moved so that I could get some decent shots of the eagle owl flying towards me and I trusted the handler would not want the bird hitting someone head on, though he did comment on the fact that I never ducked ; you can see from the image quality that I still have to perfect the skill needed to photograph moving objects

    Your camera should have an Ai or follow focus mode Brian. This allows you to lock onto a moving target and the camera will constantly adjust. Had the owl been in focus on this shot it would have been a great picture
