Sigma DG 150-500mm -6.3 1:5 APOHSM
16mm 1.2.8 AF-Fisheye Nikkor
I started shooting around 5:30pm waiting for the Super Moon and some telephoto lens practice. I still can’t get the moon shots right to save my neck. I was allowed to stay past closing time because the girl was working overtime and was very nice. I am not sure I made the moon shot. My battery went to half Power. I shot 20 gb of shots, which was about 450 jpg and their NEF copies. I couldn’t get the ducks to fly to save my tail but a couple adopted me came to me and posed. I didn’t have any food either. I think I got one black bird to fly for me. For the Flying shots, I may need the monitor attachment, if one of them would fly! I shot these the old-fashioned way, with a tripod and through the view finder. Sigmon’s formula worked on the only shots that looked like a Moon! Sigmon Whitener has been a lifelong photographer teacher. Thanks, Sigmon, I’ll get the exif info on those! It was my Fifth time out with this lens. It was a workout for about Five hours shooting!
