Wish I had longer than 200mm
I didn't want to get too close
To be totally honest they look like snapshots. If you want the money shot you need to get closer and have better lighting
not your normal style of shot. kinda boring and snapshot-ish
they snap snap snappy
I have to walk out on a 5ft wide strip of land to get their pictures I'm not going to get too close.
Better lighting like bust out the umbrellas ?
I'm totally serious as to what you mean better lighting...
nga if aint gonna make some sacrifices and risks for the craft, trade in your nikon and get a canon.
So you just stood up and took pictures down at everything?
The problem is dude a ft little strip and one comes in between me and where I'm shooting I'm fubared. There is water on both sides and more than just those two gators
Maybe not high noon Also a polarizing filter would help a lot.
Again that 18-200mm has the ugliest bokeh. There shot at a very uninteresting angle.
If your photos aren't good enough, you're not close enough.
Shooting in the afternoon ftl
I think you're supposed to call fish and wildlife if you spot a gator over 6ft that's close to a residential area aren't you? those look like 7-8 footers.
and don't worry about getting too close, they'll just go into the water if they feel bothered, unless you're furry and weight <30lbs they won't charge you. I do it all the time going canoeing. plus it's after hatching season so they should be pretty spent by now.
you just have to run in a zig zag when they start chasing you
you have to get close enough to fill the frame with a wide angle if you want a decent picture
