Roe Deer

Photograph by Alain Balthazard,
Date: 2011

Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark II N
Focal Length: 700mm
Aperture: f/5.6
ISO/Film: 700
Shutter Speed: 1/400 sec

Note: Alain took this photo of a Roe Deer while looking to shoot Harriers. The look of the deer being startled by Alain and him capturing that exact split second makes this photo so interesting. The depth of field is beautiful in the photo and leads your eyes right to the subject. The path behind the deer that leads to the skyline captures the trail that this deer probably traveled. Excellent shot and story told by this photo!

Tip: When shooting with a telephoto lens, it’s key to have a higher shutter (exposure) speed to avoid blurriness. With a wider aperture setting of 5.6, allowed for the beautiful depth of field. When shooting with an increased depth of field, it’s key to make sure you focus on the correct part of the photo. You may miss that moment you are trying to capture if you are not careful.
