  1. photoshop download

    You would be better getting a monthly subscription for Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC http://www.adobe.com/uk/creativecloud/photography.html This is what I do, run programmes off my laptop and desktop but save images on external hard drive so not to slow machines down 👍

    Nuthatch from today, my last photography outing of 2017 and hoping 2018 brings some more special subjects to capture through the lens

    Cracking capture matie, top work...
  4. Lens?Which one?

    Something like this would be a good starting point https://www.wexphotovideo.com/panasonic-100-300mm-f40-56-ii-lumix-g-vario-lens-1616680/ should be able to pick up cheaper 2nd hand

    Too slow of a shutter speed is the problem.... not the camera as it is more then fast enough at 1/2000th sec shutter speed, more the setting you're using and light has a huge factor, dull day will equal slower shutter and brighter day will be faster... only real way to conquer is using wider aperture (F4 or round about) if camera has capability... I'm not knowledgeable about compact cameras but YouTube can be a great source of info...

    Totally agree with the above, getting close and knowing your subject and its behaviour/patterns will go such a long way, short bursts of say 10-15 shots then maybe recompose should stand you in good stead... This LEO had been studied for a couple weeks, learned and observed where and when it hunted and its habits which included landing on this perch every evening of only for a matter of seconds/minutes.... knowedge, field craft and a hefty bit of luck paid a huge part, also the use of a pop up dome hide was essential for capturing this image

    Had a trip down to Whitby for the Goth weekend, never been before and didn't think it'd be my kind of thing but the atmosphere was cracking and outfits/costumes were awesome, good for photographs
