Photo Throwback / Squirrels in NYC

Posted by

I love photographing city squirrels in all cities I go. NYC has been my favorite squirrel shooting place so far because the squirrels let me and my camera come really close. They didn’t care if I was only 3-4ft from them. Thus I got punch of great pics. Here you can see my top4 from May 2015. 🙂

These all are taken with Canon EOS 550D + Canon 18-55mm IS.

All: 55mm, f/5.6, 1/80 or 1/100, no flash.

Tips for great squirrel pics:

– be patient

– use telephoto lens if you have one

– … or if go to NYC if you don’t have telephoto lens. 😀 These are taken with 18-55mm IS Canon lens

– if possible go shooting when it’s sunny

– use fast shutter speeds if possible (the faster the camera is the easier it’s to get sharp photos)

– if it’s not super bright increase your ISO (ASA) to make it possible to use faster shutter speed
