Beats of a dragonfly 打败蜻蜓 ...



吉隆坡湖滨公园 
Lake Garden KL

a dragonfly beats its wings 30 beats per second ...
you probably have to chase for one that is busily flying around ...
but patience is the key as 
one will usually finally stand still for you ...

I was advised on the following guideline ...
Aperture to be at least f/5 to f/8
Shutter speed at least 1/200
ISO not to exceed beyond 400
Set camera to continuous mode ...
and Focus on the eyes ...
.
my shot was at 
f/7, 1/100, ISO 200, -2/3, Shutter priority ...
and I 'almost' followed all the guidelines recommended by
some photography expert ...
.
but
did it turn out right ...

Magníficas!! Me encantan esas fotografías!
Yo no entiendo de técnica, de ISO, aperturas, velocidades... Poco más sé que usar el automático.

Si no te importa, me quedaré por aquí y pondré un enlace en mi blog para poder estar al día de tus publicaciones.

Un saludo.
