A Nice Day in the Garden

In life you meet some people you just get on with without any effort.

Five months ago after posting images of birds on social media and offering my knowledge to anyone who wanted help with their photography, a nice guy called Tom got in touch with me asking for for a chat about camera settings.

We met later in the month and spent some time in Stanley Park near Blackpool, taking some images of Swans and Parakeets. We got on really well and I invited him up to our static van to see the bird life we get.

He came today for the morning. We had some lunch and sat taking images of Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Siskin, Redpoll, Nuthatch, Coal Tit, Chaffinch, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Robin, Blackbird and Collard Dove.

Tom loved it as the birds came into feed all the time, giving him a chance to test his Nikon D7200 out on different settings.

Sometimes in photography you’re getting great images, then for some reason you decide to try something else. That is what happened to me today – I changed my focus setting area.

I think, with the light being great, the settings were not to my liking, so I am going back to old settings. But it is good to try out new things just to make sure!
