This is the year that I am determined to get those perfect jumping lamb photos. I have posted some others here and in other posts. I welcome any advice from you photographers out there. My lens info is at the end of this post. Too darn many lambs in the way.The lambs are most active in the evening when there is lower light. I am shooting with a larger aperture and therefore more shallow depth of field. Notice the lamb in focus is not the one that is jumping. In addition, those black lambs are hard to photograph in detail.
More lambs in the way. Lambs in the way AND depth of field issues. Same problems. And more lambs in the way. Focal length issues again. Lambs facing the wrong way. Focal length and shutter speed issues. I think I got this one on depth of field. Too bad the lamb is facing the wrong way. Sort of OK but needs a faster shutter speed to really get it. Also the black one lying down is distracting. This photo probably has the fewest issues.The running lamb photos have similar challenges. These photos were all taken with my Nikon 40 mm f 2/8 lens to take advantage of the larger aperture but that gives me the more shallow depth of field. My other lens is the 18-135 mm f/3.5-5.6. Any recommendations?
