Blue Jay – How I Got The Shot 9/30/20

I created this shot using the new Canon R6 and my old trusty Canon 400mm 2.8L lens.

  • Place the camera in M mode
  • Set the shutter speed and F/stop. For this shot, 1/3200 @ f 7.1 Auto ISO
  • Place the ISO in Auto
  • Manually focus on the pole that supports the feeder
  • Using a cable release, fire away as the bird comes to the feeder.
